At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Grey skies are hovering in the breeze this morning, showing just a little hint of damper stuff to fall later, maybe.
The air is milder than it has been though, well just a bit; that breeze, as light as it is, continues to drift down from the north west.
And the surf is still pretty tiny too, bigger than yesterday’s flatness but barely showing it in the depths of an almost eight metre tide.
Give it a couple of hours for the tide to peak and then as it starts to drop out we should be seeing some fun little knee high cruisers drifting through.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It is pretty much flat here this morning too but there are those gorgeous little, tiny peelers shimmering off the super high tide bank, tempting and teasing but nothing more than a high tide mirage really.
As soon as the tide starts to fall, those spilling peaks will vanish, those ankle high peelers being quickly replaced by weak and onshore slopped little close-outs.
But it does look pretty right now!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Saturday 29th April 2017
We should see a windshift to the south and south east today, a drier and milder direction that at least might just help what surf ether is to break cleanly.
We could just see some little waves starting to show themselves in the morning too, building gradually through the day.
As long as the wind doesn’t blow offshore too strongly!
But there is a new swell rolling our way, only small but getting into the low teens wave-period so hopefully fairly solid for its tiny size.
We should be gliding across chest high peelers by the evening though!
Surf Conditions for the Spring Holiday Weekend
After another frustrating week of calm and surfless, chilly days, this Holiday Weekend is promising just a little more.
The wind is forecast to ease its way to the south east for Saturday, a milder, drier and more surf shaping direction.
And we should see some waves too!
Only small but evenly spaced and perfectly peeling, sunlit little waves can be expected through Saturday, a foot or two of glass, increasing just a little in size on the afternoon’s rising tide.
Sunday could just bring some half decent two to three foot surf, the breeze kinder in the morning, the onshores kicking in through the afternoon ahead of a hopeful evening glass-off.
And May day should see some booming surf rolling through, a blustery and probably dampish westerly wind pushing that swell into our bays and coves.
Harlyn should start to shine through the afternoon, providing a brief escape from the May Day crush elsewhere.
This holiday weekend with improving surf and some pleasant enough weather should cheer us all up in readiness for the booming thud of those May Day celebrations on Monday.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
