Constantine (3*): 2 ft, clean and glassy
at 6.05 a.m.
It is a beautiful morning this morning; a clear skied, white mooned, glassy sea’d gem of a tranquil early summer’s dawn.
The surf is a pleasant couple of feet, that glassy and rolling kind of swell, caressing the breaks rather than battering them, peeling across the HTC bank. Longboard heaven on Constantine morning.
The breeze is almost non-existent, just the lightest of air drifts breathing offshore right now with not much change forecast for the rest of the day. There will probably be that sea breeze effect this afternoon once the land heats up but there shouldn’t be much more than a breeze even then anyway.
Yep it is a great day out there, you might just want to get out and enjoy it!
It’s pretty flat around here this morning, beautiful, peaceful and tranquil, the sea all glassy and calm but pretty much flat. It would be great place to launch a SUP this morning, gently paddling out for a peaceful day’s fishing maybe?
But it’s the other side of the headland again for a surf today, it’s a couple of feet of summer fun over there!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 18th May 2014
Well, we all knew that it had to change.
A dull and overcast day awaits us, the wind staying fairly light but steadily blowing in from the south sou’ west, onshore at our main breaks. The swell is still likely to be too small for our wind protected spots too.
So a bit of a lacklustre day awaits. There will be some surf but it’s not going to be as it has been!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It has all been pretty fabulous for the back half of this week, hasn’t it!
As high pressure took control of the weather, there has been a little swell generating depression out there, spinning some quite small but immaculately shaped little waves our way for the last few days. Well, when I say ‘little’, it has been a half decent three feet and bigger at its peak.
These light offshore breezes and clear, bright skies are only likely to hang around for another day or so and so it is all looking very pleasant as we go into the weekend with maybe smaller waves for Saturday, still clean and sparkling and fun but changing on Sunday!
The weather might just haze over quite a bit for Sunday but it should stay calm enough with only light south sou’ westerlies forecast. After that though those breezes are likely to swing more onshore for a day or two at our main surf breaks.
We’ll have to wait and see if any waves manage to get around to those cleaner, more sheltered breaks but before that we can still enjoy a period of fabulous weather and enjoyable surf! Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
