At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind is lightly blustering in from the south so far this morning, bringing a few wet bits with it while it lightly shakes the hedges and ruffles the marram.
The surf has built overnight with some thick and heavy, overhead waves walloping their way onto the high tide bank this morning. The tide is still too high just yet, things will get heavier and crunchier as that tide slips out with some big and booming peaks throwing their weight around.
But of course, that wind will no doubt slip more to the west making for bumpier and messier conditions too!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Three to four feet of high tide hesitant and lumpy waves are crashing into Harlyn this morning, that early morning, high tide backwash bump affecting it all. But give it an hour or so and it will all be a whole lot sharper and cleaner.
We can expect offshore hollowed, thick and heavy barrels to be aiming this way all day long!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:57 (0.6m) High Tide: 18:47 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 17th April 2018
Harlyn should be graining under the weight of lumping great waves throwing their hollow and heavy, groundswell weight around the place today!
It should be big and it should be hollow and it will probably be quite scary too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Southerly, going strong south westerly winds are going to be blowing in an already thick and lumpy, heavy swell as we launch ourselves into this week.
That deep low pressure system that is cruising up and over us is going to slingshot a whole heap of surf our way with six to eight to ten feet of stormy waves banging against our jagged coastline.
Harlyn will be our ‘go-to’ surf spot through Monday and into Tuesday where we can expect some thick and sizeable, hollow and powerful waves to test our skills and equipment right to the limit.
But it is midweek when the magic might happen.
With summer-like air temperatures and a still booming swell, the wind should slide offshore and ease in strength.
Wednesday might just show us some solid six foot surf with offshore winds and sunshine!
And that very pleasant and summery feel should continue right into the weekend with weather and waves aplenty!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
