Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
at 6.35 a.m:
There’s a veil of grey drawn around us this morning, a light canopy of haze or low cloud maybe, although it is still bright enough beneath it whatever it is and it is so very mild too.
Well, yesterday turned out to be an epic day in a series of beauts this last few weeks, the surf magnificent and the weather as good as you’d ever want.
Today the wind has slipped to the south sou’ west, only light so far but forecast to strengthen just a bit through the afternoon.
That majestic swell of yesterday afternoon has eased up this morning too but there is still a decent three to occasionally four feet of more crumbly surf rolling through this morning. It’s not that smooth and precise stuff of yesterday but it is still fun looking with a good gap between waves and a decent wait for those sets.
As long as the wind doesn’t strengthen too much there should be some fun surf around for most of the day.
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot
Conditions are super clean around here this morning, the light south sou’ westerly wind drifting offshore here and helping to shape those glassy little waves.
And there are one to two feet of glassy little waves washing in, yes, small but smartly shaped and tempting.
Here is an option if you would prefer to surf shape rather than size but it is unlikely to get much bigger at all here today.
So, one foot of gliding on glass here or three feet of crumbly and bumpy stuff over the other side of the headland?
At least we have choices!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:19 (1.8m) High Tide: 10:01 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 25th April 2015
Light south westerly winds are going to frustrate again just a little today.
On the one hand that wind is helping the three feet or so of swell but it is also going to make for crumblier conditions at our favoured surf breaks.
Constantine is likely to be three feet and bumpy while Harlyn will be clean but small again.
And so we will have to decide again which conditions we would prefer to surf.
At least it should be mild and bright and cheerful wherever we end up!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Just to mix things up a bit after a few weeks of settled and gorgeous conditions, we should be seeing the arrival of the first in a queue of low pressure systems by Friday morning.
It’s by no means a strong thing, just a bit more mixed than we have been enjoying, the wind slipping to the south, sou’ west, a little dampness in the air later maybe, along with some lumpier and choppier surf at the main breaks.
But then our sheltered spots might start to come alive again too!
The weather is likely to settle to a more normal run of onshore breezes with some dullness and dampness too but we are likely to see plenty of enjoyable sunshine as well, especially through Saturday.
So, Friday and Saturday are going to present us with the choice of surfing three feet and hopefully bigger but bumpier and crumblier Constantine side or one to two feet of clean and sharper Harlyn side.
While the weather is unlikely to be in the fantastic range of the last few weeks, it is probably going to be generally okay and bright enough. Well, up until Sunday anyway!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
