At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): Flat
Right now a beautiful dawn is spreading brightness across the bay on a calm and peaceful, easy Monday morning but there is a chill nip in the air and there are dull and threatening clouds just over there!
The air is still and the day is calm but the surf is almost completely flat.
Shimmering ripples are spinning off frustratingly tiny peaks, shin to maybe knee high but with a long wait between even those little ones!
We might see a little increase in size as the wind strengthens onshore coinciding with this afternoon’s tide but the trade-off, as always, will be a return to onshore and choppy conditions.
So, it’s flat now with maybe small and choppy conditions later.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
A lightly misted sea remains flat and smooth here this morning, the moody atmosphere pleasant and relaxing but surfless.
It could be quiet some time before we are paddling out here in search of waves!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:58 (1.1m) High Tide: 16:52 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 25th April 2017
A couple of feet of onshore chopped and messed junk surf will be blowing our way today, the wind expected to be cold and blustery, aiming straight down from the north.
We might just get a session in at one of those headland protected spots but it’s unlikely to be better than barely okay! And it is probably going to be chilly too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another week of real small waves and mainly onshore winds is waiting to taunt us!
Starting out with a westerly wind through Monday, it won’t be long before those northerlies return to blow cold air all the way down the coastline.
While Monday might show a couple of feet of sloppy and choppy stuff at the main breaks later on in the afternoon, Tuesday will be a day of gusting northerlies just reminding us that high summer is still a little way away!
By midweek the wind will be twitching between northerly and north easterly, doing nothing for the swell size and still feeling cold but maybe cleaning up those tiny waves for a short while at the more exposed breaks.
So, it is likely to be one of those weeks when, if you have the time and energy to be completely on it, you might just luck into an hour or two of better than expected and quite fun surf here and there.
Or you could end up running around in circles in a frustrating search for those elusive waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
