At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 2 to 3 feet
The weather has reverted back to windy, cold, damp and dull for this morning with an annoying north westerly wind blustering into the bay.
And so the surf is a messed up bundle of junk. A couple to three feet at best of grey and wintery, chopped out and sloppy surf is washing about, hardly enticing and not looking like too much fun.
Which is a shame after yesterday’s peaking and peeling hollowness.
Still, ether’s always the south coast!
I’m going to be out of action for a couple of days, so no surf report for a little while!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The wind is blustering onshore into bay here as well this morning but it is almost flat.
Tiny little slopped and chopped waves are crumbling their way onto the sand but it would be barely rideable, even if you wanted to!
And in this cold wind looking at six inches of junk surf, it is difficult to get enthusiastic!
But the far coast should be a completely different world!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 13th March 2014
The wind is going to back to the south through this morning but how soon and how far, we don’t know yet.
I would imagine that the day might start off with some big surf being blown a bit raggedy at our favourite breaks in the morning but dropping a lot in size and cleaning up by mid-afternoon.
It could, might, maybe, perhaps just get quite good by this afternoon!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
I think that we are going to be enjoying a mixed old week this week with varying winds and a jumble of swells.
A fresh blowing north westerly wind is likely to be tearing and messing those quite big windswells to start the week, but it is likely to back southerly or (hopefully!) south easterly quite quickly.
By Tuesday we could just be enjoying some great surf with brisk but calming side to offshore winds on a very pleasant day.
That wind is likely to strengthen through midweek, blowing hard against a rapidly building swell, the wind eventually backing onshore through late afternoon allowing that swell to jump in size.
So, a mixed start but hopefully producing some good surf as we move into midweek, with some big swells marching our way for the back half of the week!
Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, have a great week!
