Constantine (3*): 3 ft
A bright and pleasant day is waking, the blue sky stretched to each horizon, the odd fluffy cloud adding interest. The wind is gusting fairly lightly from the north north east, a chilly bite to it on an otherwise very nice morning.
The surf is rolling in at three feet, with maybe the odd bigger one breaking in the usual places. The wind is strong enough to put a bit of bumpy cross chop on the faces of those left-handers, keeping them open for maybe just a fraction too long. The rights are just a bit fat.
That is at just about an hour or two after high tide, the dropping tide always having some effect. So it should all improve as the day rolls along with this afternoon’s incoming tide looking really promising for some clean and fun two to three foot surf in a lot of bright sunshine. And we should see a bit of a glass-off for this evening’s HTC too!
Interesting to see the low-loaders full of maxi sandbags unloading in the car park this morning. I hear that the idea is to pack out the entrance way way to the beach with them, infilling with rocks and then covering with loose sand in order to get the lifeguard hut back in place.
Should be interesting!?
Harlyn (1*): 1 – 2 ft
There’s a foot or so of onshore waves rolling ashore on the dropping tide this morning, that north north easterly wind blowing only lightly but straight onshore.
The other side has the better conditions this morning but if you are keen for Harlyn then you’ll get a wave but it won’t be up to much.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:10 (1.0m) High Tide: 18:00 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 15th April 2014
Ah, south easterly wind.
It’s all going to be offshore and sunny today, that gusting south easterly wind strengthening through the afternoon blowing straight offshore at all of our main surf breaks.
And so the swell will have to battle against that wind to get to those surf breaks. We can expect the size of the surf to drop. But we should be enjoying a decent couple of feet of super clean and peeling surf under a lot of clear and bright sunshine. And that can’t be bad!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
High pressure seems set to fill in over the next few days providing dry and settled and bright weather with calm winds and blue skies.
The swell is likely to be pretty steady to start off the week, a half decent three foot swell marching in to a mid teens wave-period beat, a solid little fun swell powerful enough to break at all of our main surf breaks.
And the wind is forecast to steady itself to a more easterly going south easterly direction as we go into the week, gently blowing direct offshore, grooming those waves to perfectly shaped things.
By midweek it is likely to be only small, a foot or two at best. but it should stay bright and cheerful and pleasant enough to get you scurrying after a longboard!
Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
