Surf Report for Friday 10th April 2015

Constantine (4*):  4 feet

at 7.05 a.m:


It’s still all hunky dory so far!
The sun is shining, the surf is rolling in and the breeze is offshore.
The sky is the palest of pale blues this morning, the sun a light and hazy brightness somewhere over there, the breeze carrying the sound of birdsong along with that scent of Spring.
While the surf rolls in, the breeze is whispering offshore, into the faces of those four foot and reeling barrels, all dark blue wave faces and brilliant white lips.
Get in quick though and make the most of it, the wind is set to switch by this afternoon, a south westerly wind returning to shake up those waves.
The weather should stay bright enough but the wind is likely to chop up the surf more than it has for the last week or so.
But, for now, enjoy this wonderful weather and the exquisite surf!


Harlyn (1*):  1 foot


There are little waves stuttering in here this morning but they are very little.
There’s a foot or so of clean and sharp little waves slapping onto the sand a couple of hours or more before high tide, the wind offshore, the sky all bright.
But it’s the other side of the headland that is getting all the surf this morning again, it’s a good three to four feet and sparkling over there so far today!


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  15:58  (1.7m)              High Tide:  09:35  (6.4m)


Surf Forecast for Saturday 11th April 2015

North westerly winds are going to chill the air this morning, the sky still bright enough but with a few thicker cloud banks drifting about.
The surf is likely to be onshore everywhere through the morning but as that wind backs westerly and gradually south westerly, then Harlyn will start to show off.
The surf is likely to have built overnight, allowing a half decent three feet or more of fairly thick surf to roll around and into Harlyn.
Yep, we should be enjoying some good Harlyn surf in offshore conditions in more bright sunshine by the afternoon!


Surf Conditions for the Weekend

As the school holidays wind down, it looks as though we will be greeting a little weather front through the weekend, making for just enough difference to signify a change.
But the surf is likely to continue driving in, building into Saturday with that freshening onshore wind behind it.
Following Friday’s slow change in the weather, that wind slipping gently onshore, Saturday is likely to start out with cold north westerly winds, fairly light but noticeable. But by lunchtime, the wind should be steadily blowing from the west and then the south west. And by then the swell size is likely to be a bit bigger too, making Harlyn the place to check.
And that is likely to be the way of it through Sunday too, a slow start with that chilly north westerly wind back to mess up the surf in the morning but fairly quickly swinging westerly and then back to south westerly by the afternoon, at least allowing Harlyn the chance to show off some clean waves.
So, a building swell and strengthening winds are on the cards for this weekend, Harlyn probably attracting the main focus of surfing action!

Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
