At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet.
A brighter kind of day is gradually pushing its way through after last night’s downpours, a sky of blue spreading from the horizon.
The surf is powering through at four to six feet, the fresh sou’ westerly wind hurrying those tattered waves into the bay before thwacking them onto the high tide shore dump. It’s big and lumpy and unpredictable here this morning but almost tempting. Maybe as the tide drops out, especially if the wind eases at all – which it isn’t forecast to do but, you never know!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet.
The tide is too high to allow the three to four feet of bouncy surf to break properly but you can still see the underlying swell lines and the potential for later.
Give it a couple of hours for the tide to drop back and we should be seeing some real fun surf in the three to four foot range and offshore hollowed by the brisk south westerly wind!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:56 (0.5m) High Tide: 08:29 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 1st April 2017
That same four to six feet of lumpy, bumpy swell should continue to pour along the coast, the wind calming for a while but also backing to the north west.
So, onshore conditions are likely at all of our surf breaks today, not that ‘out of control’ onshore but fresh enough to make for bumpy conditions.
I’m guessing that most of the young guns are going to be tackling sloppy and bumpy three foot and bigger Harlyn on the first day of the Easter school holidays!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed weekend is waiting to kick-off the school Easter holidays.
Saturday morning is likely to bring some more brisk north westerly winds, keeping the air temperatures low while chopping and mixing a thick and rolling swell.
Sunday is likely to cheer us up with some pleasantly bright weather and much lighter winds, still from the north and still keeping temperatures low but maybe allowing some cleaner surf.
That is likely to continue into the start of the week with mixed but mainly onshore conditions for a day or two before those offshores and sunshine settle in for a pro-longed stay!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
