At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet.
The sky is that duller shade of grey this morning, the wind rattling down the lanes, coldly snapping at the hedgerows while heavy squalls of rain noisily hosepipe the beach.
It’s not ideal!
But blue sky can be seen just over there, hovering above the wild atlantic, that white wintery blue of an early morning breezy one.
Nah, six feet of blown out junk surf is washing around the bay, all mixed up and directionless, those lost waves shivering as they break. There’s nothing to ride here today but the wind is growling in from the south west, so let’s go look at Harlyn……..
We are running a bit of an EASTER special SALE through this holiday weekend (making it up as we got along again!).

Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet.
Three to four feet of dark and brooding waves are surging ashore, those set waves all warped and ribbed, a wintery thickness of swell shivering through the backwash of almost high tide.
There’s no need to rush this morning, there’s every reason to believe that it is all going to improve as the day rolls on.
The wind should slowly, very slowly, ease in strength as the tide gradually, very gradually, increases in size.
With the tide on the drop through this morning, it is likely to stay ribbed and bouncy for most of the time until midday, especially as the strong wind continues to gust sideshore to offshore.
But the forecasts are showing a cleaner wind, a bigger swell and brighter weather for later on, the afternoon tide probably pushing through some big sets as well.
A day of two halves awaits, the second half probably being way better for surfing!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:46 (1.2m) High Tide: 08:24 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 28th March 2016
A six foot swell and a fresh west sou’ westerly should combine to provide another pumping day at Harlyn!
Four to five feet of sand dredging dumpsters are likely to greet us in the morning, thickening up and sharpening up as the day goes on!
Surf Conditions for the Start of Easter Week
All eyes have been on the Atlantic weather charts in anticipation of the Easter holiday this weekend.
And it is looking interesting from a surfing point of view!
It is looking very much like a Harlyn weekend with a brisk sou’ wester blustering in and pushing along a building four to five to six foot swell ahead of it, getting bigger through Easter Sunday.
That pleasant and bright weather and fairly clean surf of Good Friday quickly changed as more blustery and more showery conditions hit us for the weekend.
Growing swells started to boom into Harlyn through Saturday and should continue to push ashore well into Easter Sunday and Monday, getting bigger through Sunday.
Big surf is growling along the coastline for this Easter weekend so take it easy but enjoy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
