At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 6 feet
It’s another slow start to today with that pale grey sky stretching from horizon to horizon. But the air is calm, the ground is dry and the surf is pumping.
Four to five feet and bigger of lumpy and slightly crumbly swell lines are cruising into the bay through the mist and haze of this heavily overcast morning.
The Point has been on fire all week and so too has the Reef and other spots and it’s the same again this morning, those glassy faced waves turning themselves inside out in their hurry to explode into the shallows.
It looks like another beast of a paddle out there again today but the rewards should be more than worthwhile!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of lazy looking and crumbly but still crunchy looking surf is eventually crashing ashore here this morning, the dropping tide ripping some chop into that peak over in the middle and putting a bump into the faces of those occasional drainers that spin off the Rock.
There will definitely be places with better surf than here all the way up and down the coast this morning but by this afternoon it could just be fun here!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:02 (1.5m) High Tide: 16:57 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 14th April 2018
I can’t remember whether I have ever posted a five star surfcheck yet?
Today could just come close, in theory!
Three to four feet of smooth and long travelled, low teens wave-period groundswell is likely to be rolling in against a light offshore breeze under a bright, Spring sky, the air temperature rising into the higher teens.
I wonder how reality might differ?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It looks like we are in for a weekend of two distinct halves this weekend.
Saturday is all set to produce some great surf and weather with a very decent three to four feet of groundswell being shaped and formed into peeling perfection by a light offshore, south easterly breeze. throw in some very welcome sunshine and we have another shoulder testing day of surfing ahead of us!
By Sunday morning the swells will be thicker, building all the way through the day ending up being chunky and sizeable by the evening. A gusting southerly wind will twitch from south easterly, offshore, at first light to south sou’ westerly, onshore at our main breaks, offshore at Harlyn, by darkness.
So, it is promising to be a weekend filled with quality waves to ride along with plenty of okay weather!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
