At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Fog and haze and a milky white light are snuggling over us this morning, the air absolutely still the waves gliding silently before exploding into action.
It really is a fabulous start to the day!
Three feet or now and then just a bit more of oil smooth, glassy waves are tumbling and spilling their way to the beach, peeling across the shallows before gliding to the sand.
The sun is quickly burning through the haze of a fine Spring day, promising a great day of fun surf and loads of sunshine!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The fog and haze of calm and peaceful early Spring morning are blocking the view of any waves but I think that it is safe to assume that those waves are tiny.
It sounds that way anyway!
And with teh other side offering such gorgeous surf conditions then why would you not enjoy those?
It might be worth a little look this afternoon (the swell is forecast to build) but our main, more swell exposed breaks are the place for some dream surf today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:10 (2.9m) High Tide: 12:32 (5.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 10th April 2018
The thing about having a big wave gun in your quiver is that every now and again conditions conspire to offer those big and beautiful swells where you might want to use it!
And today could just be one of those!
Six to eight feet of grinding power waves might just flog our coastline and test your skills and confidence!
Take it easy if you’re heading for the gnarlier spots!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
All the groms who are enjoying a second week of school holidays are going to be frothing over the surf conditions for this coming week. With light offshore breezes forecast to whisper our way for most of the time and enough bright weather to accompany a pulsing swell there is going to be plenty of enjoyable surf around, with enough variation to satisfy petty much everyone’s taste.
The three to four feet of swell with light northerlies of Monday are soon going to be replaced by six to eight feet of grinding hollowness by Tuesday, the wind gusting in from the north east and blowing those chunky waves inside out as they the tumble and spill our way all day long.
By midweek and then for the rest of the week the swell should settle in the three to four feet range, the breeze continuing from the east, hollowing and shaping those consistent swells.
I think that the weather and surf are just about to start making up for those tedious conditions that reigned through winter maybe!
Anyway, it is looking like a surf drenched week ahead of us with enough fine weather to satisfy visitors and residents alike.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
