At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
The wind has calmed after last night’s blow-through, leaving the debris and flotsam of a strong one in its wake. We are still not sure how the trampoline managed to sashay around the palms, cross the garden and park itself under the verandah while straddling the table and chairs. It was like untangling a knot-ball!
But the wind has calmed to more of a steady northerly and seems to have the intention of continuing to drop to no more than a breeze through today, while maybe slipping offshore too!
The swell has eased right off as well but there’s still a couple to three feet of smooth faced but still sloppy little waves bumbling through when they’re ready.
So, yes, this afternoon could just be brighter and cleaner and more fun than we had expected!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet.
A foot or two of still wind-affected waves are stumbling in here this morning, the late returners from a stormy night out, all a bit dishevelled and disinterested, bit distracted by the fast flow of the winter stream.
The wind should improve through this afternoon but even so the other side will probably be better!

Surf Forecast for Monday 21st November 2016
A chilly north easterly wind is likely to be greeting us in the morning, a brisk offshore to start the day, gradually deteriorating as that wind backs more northerly.
But we should be able to enjoy a couple to maybe three feet of wind hollowed little snappy ones to start the day, watching that wind put more and more ribs and lines onto the sea’s surface as we go through the day.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We are in for a bit of a wobbly start to the week before conditions settle into more of an offshore air stream for most of the rest of the week.
The wind is mainly going to be blowing down from the north east so we can expect a lot of cold air to be keeping us on our toes but that is offshore and so the surf that we do get should be mainly clean.
So Monday is likely to start the week with a brisk and bone crunching north easterly going north westerly wind to shape and then misshape the three feet or so of mainly okay surf.
By Tuesday that wind will have settled onshore, steadily blowing in from the north west and bumping the surf before relaxing by midweek to lightly breezing offshore, if only for a wee while.
Although the wind will strengthen through the rest of the week, it is likely to stay mainly offshore(ish) for most of the time.
It’s just a shame that the wave size is likely to drop a lot into midweek, leaving us with only small, one foot surf for a day or two before we see more of a build up in swell (as well as wind strength!).
But overall we should be in for a week of okay surf with mainly clean surf for most of the time.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
