At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A light south westerly breeze is strengthening quickly this morning as dark skies threaten way out on the horizon.
It’s bright enough right now but you just know that a storm is coming, you can feel it. And those tiny wavelets are going to build too, the six inches to a foot of wind slopped and harmless little junk surf promising to build and build and build.
It’ll be big enough to send us scurrying around to Harlyn in search of something cleaner and more rideable by this evening!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Sharp and snappy little waves are slapping onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, the south westerly wind blowing straight offshore here.
Those tiny waves aren’t rideable yet but that will change.
We can expect plenty of wind hollowed and crunching waves to be pulsing their way into the bay soon enough.

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 4th May 2021
Blustery north westerly winds are going to be wrecking the surf today, those thick and lumpy swells being tossed and turned by strong blowing winds.
Temperatures are going to be kept low by that wind which will make those heavy downpours all the more miserable too.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A low pressure system will be sweeping across the country as we go into the start of May this week, a cold and blustery, hard blowing north westerly wind quickly taking controls as some much needed rain reminds us of those endless wet and dreary days of Winter.
The week should start though with a strengthening sou’ wester blowing some mixed and ugly weather our way but along with plenty of thick and lumpy, building swells.
Harlyn will be churning out plenty of hollow waves through Monday afternoon, maybe getting board snappingly good by evening.
But the wind will inevitably back to the north west soon enough, dropping the air temperature again and ruining the surf all along this coast as heavy rain showers give the bays a post holiday powerwash.
It is likely to be week’s end before we see some clean and more pleasant surf conditions and then only for a short while before the wind blows hard again.
So it looks like a week to catch up on all those indoor jobs which have been mounting up, unless we decide on a surfer or two to the far coast?
That could be fun!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
