At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet.
A cloud covered and breezy morning is quickly brightening, those blue bits spreading in the sky while the sun gradually pushes its way through.
The wind is gusting in from the north west, chilly in the early morning and all onshore and ruffling and slopping the surf.
That surf is a decent three feet, maybe bigger on some of those slow moving, thick and lumpy sets but it is all a bit windblown and unpredictable, the high tide bounce having its effect too.
The wind is expected to calm as the day goes on while the sky should continue to brighten but it will take an offshore to smooth that surf into something more interesting.
Still, the water is warming up nicely and there are rideable waves washing on what looks like could eventually be a bright and cheerful day, so don’t write it off completely!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot.
There are only little waves washing in here this morning, a couple of feet or so of windblown and washy little surf rolling up the beach on the way to high tide.
It is really small and pretty sloppy in this fresh north westerly wind, so I think that I’d prefer the other side,at least there is a little size to it over there!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th May 2016
A wave smoothing offshore breeze is expected today, the waves only small through the morning but with a new swell expected to push through by evening.
And that new swell could be really very good!
A long travelled and wind smoothed three feet of lined up and reeling swell is expected by evening, improving by the hour!
Yep, today could end up being very good indeed!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a bit of a lazy and slow start, this week could just turn out to be a delight of clean and sunny conditions with small but sparkling surf to ride.
The wind will frustrate us on Monday, a brisk northerly to slop that rolling swell as it eventually reaches shore.
But by Tuesday the wind should have backed to the east, eventually slipping more to the south east. And as the wind strength eases into the evening that small and fairly close-fetch little surf will be replaced by the start of a new three foot swell with a long wave period.
Wednesday is looking really promising with a thick and solid three to four feet of rolling groundswell pumping in against a light and smooth offshore breeze.
The swell will eventually weaken as the week winds down but the wind is set to remain light and offshore and the sun is set to shine.
It promises to be a good one!
Have great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
