Surf Report for Monday 31st March 2014 at 7.05 a.m.

Constantine (3*): 3 ft

A calm and settled morning is upon us, the lightest of south easterly breezes drifting offshore under a heavily hazy sky while a smooth and clean swell peels shoreward.
Those clean lines are straight edging in on the back of the Reef again this morning, a distinct new swell peaking into the new HTC break half an hour after high.
It’s three feet, a solid and proper three feet, standing tall at take off and pausing before peeling away, left and right on the beach, hollow on the Reef.
With the sun slowly clambering over the horizon this morning and only lazily pushing through the haze, it’s difficult to believe the met office’s forecast of heavy rain within a couple of hours – it looks set to be fine!
So, a day of fine surf lies ahead, light offshores helping to shape that still building swell into beautifully shaped peelers.
Enjoy.

Team GB Junior Captain, Taz Knight surveys the carnage that is check-in for the groms at Heathrow. Good luck in Ecuador!

Rhys Barfield is off to Ecuador with the rest of the Team GB Junior Squad this morning for the ISA World Junior Championships. Their plane is in the air right now! And so he and the rest of the groms are desperately trying to raise the funds necessary to get them there without bankrupting their mums and dads.
 Since the mega surf companies aren’t yet embarrassed enough to provide any support for the U.K. Groms, it’s down to everyone else to do it!

There’s only a couple of days left to pledge your support for British surfing’s future!  So go to http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-teamgb and pay a little back to the kids!
Here’s a clip of Rhys while in Australia a week or two ago…

It is only a foot or so around here this morning and you have to wait a while for that!  It is clean and it is high tide and the swell should build, if only a little through the day.  So there might be something more on this afternoon’s tide.  But right now, it’s not worth the paddle, especially when the other side is so attractive!

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:05  (0.3m)          High Tide:  18:56  (7.5m)

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 1st April 2014

And it looks promising for today too!
That solid swell should still have a double digit wave-period to it and so it’s going to keep its power and strength, while the wind is set to stay light and offshore helping to keep the shape of those waves.
Yep, it looks like another great day of fun three foot surf, reeling and rolling across our breaks. Let’s hope that we see a little bit more than the glimpses of sunshine that have been forecast!

 

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

You have got to be loving this!
The week looks set to start out with a new swell rolling our way with a high teens wave-period to it, a clean and powerful little swell, caressed by a light offshore first thing on Monday.
Although the wind might back to the south west through midday, the swell should have built enough to get some clean surf into Harlyn by then.
Tuesday looks like a day of steady off shores blowing against a solid three foot swell. All of our favoured surf breaks should be spilling rippable surf all day long and while the size will drop by Wednesday, those peeling waves will continue to be reeling across our surf breaks all day long!
So, go grab your favourite surfboard, wax it up and enjoy another great week of super fun surf!
Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
