Happy Easter!
And the wind has dropped at last!
And so this morning’s light grey veil is lifting on a very pleasant three feet or so of glassy and lazy looking surf.
The tide is just about bang on high right now and so that is causing a bit of fatness but there’s a nice looking peak spinning some longboard lefts across the Reef while that little HTC wedge is snapping a few onto the sand.
As the tide drops we should be able to enjoy some really nice little surf all day long!
It does look as though there’s a lot of trapped cloud around but that could yet lift to allow some early Spring sunshine through eventually.
Have a great day!

There are little glassy ones lazily rolling into the bay at high tide this morning, barely bothering to break until they slap the shore-break sand. A foot, occasionally two of quite fat little waves are as much as you’re going to get here this morning and, looking at the charts, for quite some time.
There is one out having an early morning solo session but not catching much.
The other side is the place to be today, with light offshore winds forecast to gently help to shape those small but clean and rippable little waves all along the coast!

Surf Forecast for Easter Monday, 6th April 2015

As high pressure takes control we should be in for a quiet day of pleasantly clean surf.
If that cloud cover manages to lift we should also see some bright and pleasant sunshine too. But it could end up being a little grey again until late morning.
The breeze is likely to back to the north east for a while through the afternoon, still offshore but cold again.
But a bank holiday filled with small but fun and clean surf is on the cards and that will do nicely!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

North and north westerly winds have been haunting us all week.
That cold and noisy, onshore wind destroyed any chance of clean surf on this coast and has been a bit too strong for a lot of breaks on the south coast too.
But as the holiday weekend unfolds the wind is gradually easing up and has now swung offshore.
So we should be enjoying a couple to three feet of clean and sparkling surf all the way through Easter Sunday with the possibility of that cloud cover gradually being replaced by bright and clear skies.
That should carry on through Monday too, the wind maybe switching to that cold north easterly again fthrough the afternoon but staying offshore and light.
And that’s the way it is likely to be well into this week!
Have a great Easter weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
