We’re enjoying a dull and dank start start to this Good Friday, the wind still rattling down from the north west bringing those cold squalls to stop you in your tracks.
With low visibility and heavy downpours, it’s a grey day of windy dampness that surrounds us this morning!
The surf is a mess again as a result of that wind and it is much smaller than it has been, a couple to three feet at best.
So two to three feet of mixed up and messy surf in a cold wind with heavy showers. It should brighten up and cheer up by this evening but right now it is pretty hideous out there!
South coast anyone?

Harlyn (0*):  1 to 2 feet

The surf here is pretty messed up again this morning.
A foot or two of dark grey waves are slopping ashore, that north westerly wind pushing straight in to the bay.
It’s cold and dark and windy and wet and just about as far from the popularised image of surfing as you can get!
I’d give it a miss today but if you’re keen enough the other side will still be the better bet.
Or the south coast?

Surf Forecast for Saturday 4th April 2015

As high pressure slowly drifts our way, today could see the start of a change in the weather and surf conditions.
The wind is likely to veer to the east, still staying to the north and maybe too far to the north to start with but backing to the north east soon enough (we hope!).
Clearer and brighter sunshine should cheer us up all day if it can squeeze through the early haze and there should be enough surf at our favourite breaks to be fun.
And it could just get better than that!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

North westerly winds have been haunting us all week.
That cold and noisy, onshore wind has destroyed any chance of clean surf on this coast and has been a bit too strong for a lot of breaks on the south coast too.
But hopefully the wind should start to back off as we go into the back half of the week, still waiting until the weekend before changing direction but at least easing a little in strength.
There’s going to be plenty of waves pouring into the bays but they continue to be raggedy and mixed up waves, bouncing and slopping around with little shape or direction to them.
At least until the weekend.
So; Friday; Onshore everywhere, Saturday; maybe offshore and sunny, Sunday; small, clean and wonderful!
The weekend is starting to look good!
Have a great Easter weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
