At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 5 feet
The finest layer of frost is glinting off the marram on a beautifully bright and clear morning down in the bay, the sun hoisting high early on.
So deep blue skies are being reflected from a still choppy sea, the breeze steady and chilly, drifting down from the north west, forecast to back south westerly by midmorning. With a four to five foot swell running along the coast that bodes well for Harlyn later. In the meantime, enjoy the view (and I managed to get the phone working again, so videos are up on social media).
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Three feet or so of deep blue and wobbly waves are tumbling into Harlyn this morning, some bigger sets crumbling further out.
The breeze is onshore right now, a steady (and chilly) north westerly breeze lightly slopping those glistening waves. But the forecast is showing a wind-switch by midmorning when south westerlies should groom and smooth those waves into something very much better.

Low Tide: 16:31 (2.2m) High Tide: 10:09 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 17th March 2020
Freshening south westerly winds are likely to bump up the swell by a good couple of feet while bringing more mixed weather along too.
It should be milder but probably a little damper here and there.
So Harlyn should be clean and hollow and fast enough to keep you busy!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
South westerly going southerly going south easterly winds will offer some good surf this week.
Mild temperatures along with some short bursts of bright and cheery sunshine should cheer us up too.
So to start the week, Harlyn will be offering some thick and heavy, offshore wind hollowed four foot surf well into midweek.
And then for the first time in a while the breeze is likely to switch offshore to offer some clean and fun, smaller surf through the end of the week.
Thursday should see a pleasant three feet or so of clean and pleasant surf as the breeze lightens through the morning, Friday seeing the surf almost disappear as a chilly north easterly wind pushes at the weakening swell.
So, all in all a mixed but pleasant week of action packed surfing awaits.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
