At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 2 to 3 feet
The breeze is licking offshore again this morning, not as busily as it has been, there’s more of a lazy feel to it all today but it is still smoothing the already super-clean two to three feet of far apart swell lines.
Those waves are breaking so perfectly right now as well, peaking up into what looks like is going to be a close-out before spinning and reeling across the bay.
But you know it’s almost a mirage, by the time you get in there it will have changed – tide and time and all that!
But there’s already one out and looking like he’s having the most stoked social separation session!
I’m getting a whole load of messages asking us to keep the Surf Report going while we are all hunkering down during these strange times. And it is our intention to do so, if only to offer some cheer to any of you who might be suffering or to those who are giving their all to help us all.
But it hasn’t escaped us that we might just be inadvertently contributing to people ignoring the common sense rules of socially isolating. This weekend highlighted the shocking ignorance that still exists in some groups resulting in large gaggles of visitors wandering along the coast paths.
So we’ll watch and see and listen to what you think and play it one day at a time.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Little waves are tumbling onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, barely rideable and a bit sloppy in this south easterly breeze but pleasant to watch and probably rideable if this was your only choice.
But there will be many hundreds of surf breaks more enticing than here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:30 (1.1m) High Tide: 17:21 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th March 2020
Oooh, today will be a tester for your self isolation willpower!
A solid little three to four foot groundswell is going to be immaculately groomed by a steady offshore (south easterly) breeze all day long.
Every surf break worth its name will be spinning and peeling and calling to be ridden today!
Did I mention the spring sunshine too?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Nature might be playing a slightly cruel joke on us over the next little while as the weather settles into a very pleasant, bright and springlike pattern for a good little while.
And just as we all settle into this strange new routine of self distancing and isolation.
South easterly breezes should continue to brush against the sea, a new and solid little groundswell expected to arrive through Tuesday morning to provide a more than decent three to four feet of very well spaced and peeling waves all day long.
That swell should last well into the end of the week, the offshores remaining all week long as a lot of long awaited sunshine hopefully provides some feeling of well being along with a little flush of vitamins.
But don’t forget to keep your distance if you are tempted out!
Stay safe and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
