At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
There was a little mizzly drizzle out there first thing but that has already cleared, thankfully.
But there’s a steady breeze from the west, keeping temperatures lower and probably promising just a little more dampness for later. In the meantime there are gaps of brightness in an otherwise silver grey sky, that breeze is only light and there’s a couple of feet of crumbly and sloppyish but still fun looking surf rolling ashore.
What else are you going to do on a Monday morning?
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The breeze is more sheltered here allowing for glassy sea conditions but the few waves that are managing to find their way into the bay are pretty tiny. Maybe just about rideable but you’ll need some patience and a very floaty surfboard.
It might pick up a bit by this evening though.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:25 (2.2m) High Tide: 11:59 (5.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th April 2018
Very light breezes are going to be shuffling about today, allowing the three feet or so of probably weaker than you might want surf to at least stay relatively clean and smart.
Drag out the floaty boards, those waves are probably going to be better with a load of volume to ease your passage across the flats.
And there should be some spells of okay sunshine to cheer up our playground, at least for a while.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Light westerly winds are going to bring temperatures back to a more normal but not unpleasant low teens level for this week, those onshore winds bringing the occasional bit of dampness our way too.
The surf is likely to be less intense than it has been too, an alright three foot swell rolling steadily our way for most of the time, pulsing up to maybe four feet plus for moments, dropping to only a couple of feet for a while too.
So Monday will start out with that old decision as to whether to surf three fete and bigger of bumpy and lumpy Constantine or scratch around in one to two feet of Harlyn smoothness. The bright enough weather will make it feel that bit better wherever you choose as well.
Tuesday’s breeze is likely to be lighter, the damp weather not taking anything away from some very pleasant three feet or so of consistent surf.
By midweek we will be seeing that westerly wind steadying and pushing in some building surf. Doubling in size through Wednesday and doubling again during Thursday those waves will be a little sloppy even at Harlyn, especially during Thursday when we are likely to see that wind back more north westerly for a little while.
But otherwise it’s looking like an okay week for weather and waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
