Constantine (3*): 3 feet
at 6.25 a.m:
A pleasant, sun filled and breezy morning is cheering up the beach this morning, a couple to three feet of crumbly surf tempting us in for a pre-work surf session.
There are a few ribbons of greyer cloud drifting across but otherwise it’s a bright ’n breezy, pleasant summer’s day out there.
The wind is a light north westerly, keeping that chill to it on what would otherwise be a bit of a scorcher and it is that wind that is putting a little ruffle on those otherwise clean and glassy wave faces.
As long as the wind doesn’t strengthen then we should be in for a peasant day of fun surf!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
The surf is a little crumblier around here this morning, that north westerly wind being straight onshore here. And of course it is small too, a foot or occasionally two at best.
The beach is beautiful as always but the surf is better over on the other side of the headland again today.

Surf Forecast for Saturday 20th June 2015
The wind is likely to drift back top a more westerly direction today, a steady wind just crumbling the couple of feet of fairly close-fetch swell.
Surf conditions are likely to be much cleaner in the morning and evening while that wind strengthens with the sea breeze effect through the day. We could see a bit of dampness today too, that moist air being drawn up and over us again but with only a little luck we could be enjoying an okay day with just about okay surf!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Those onshore winds are going to continue to plague us this weekend, the wind choosing a more west north westerly direction through Saturday, slipping a couple of degrees more to the north through Sunday.
But it is likely to stay only a light wind throughout the weekend, ruffling and crumbling the expected two to three feet of fairly weak surf rather than chopping it up completely. And the weather should stay mild with the ever present threat of some drizzle and dampness. But we should see some brighter stuff too.
So, it’s not going to be a tropical surf drenched paradise this weekend but it should end up being okay throughout!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
