At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A light south westerly is breezing across the headland this morning beneath a canopy of a pale blue sky, the birdsong musically loud as the sun vaults over the far horizon.
There’s three feet or so of ruffled and rippled waves rolling onto the sandbanks this morning, some of them peeling, some tripping over themselves, others just collapsing.
The good weather is going to make it better fun out there and with an expected build in swell size we could just be seeing something better by this evening. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Harlyn shining by this evening’s incoming tide!
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot.
A foot of deep blue glass waves are folding themselves across the sand here this morning, the light, light breeze drifting straight offshore, a slight chill in the air while the dawn sun shines down brilliantly.
It is a fairly magical place to be this morning and by this evening it should be a fairly magical surfy place to be!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:12 (1.8m) High Tide: 10:52 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 4th April 2017
A grinding six foot swell is going to be irritated by a fresh northerly wind today.
Any overnight showers and dreariness should clear away soon enough if it hasn’t already done so by daybreak.
We might just luck-in with the wind maybe managing to nudge a degree or two to the east through late morning and that would improve things massively! Otherwise it could be day of exploration, looking for those rare breaking north facing surf spots!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A thick and lumpy, fast moving and windswept swell is going to growl its way in to start off this week!
The fresh south westerly, Harlyn friendly winds of Monday will soon be replaced by a gusting north westerly wind, making a mess of the five or six foot surf through Tuesday.
And then conditions should settle.
By midweek we can expect lighter breezes, still from the north to start with but eventually shifting north eastern (offshore), as high pressure conditions settle in.
Smaller but much cleaner and more organised surf should continue to dance our way throughout the rest of the week, the breezes light, the weather set fine and the surf enticing.
Yep, we should be in for a good week once these fronts pass by!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
