At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
The wind is blustering through this morning, still just holding itself in a south south easterly (offshore) direction but gusting and pushing. And that dawn rain has stopped too allowing for a slightly brighter contrast to all that dull grey that is hanging over the horizon just over there.
The swell has dropped but there’s still a decent couple to three feet of wind-hollowed peaks bowling into the high tide depths.
The tide is easing out making for shallower conditions and hollower waves but the wind is forecast to swing onshore through midday, while the swell should build quite rapidly too.
It’s fine here right now but by lunchtime we are probably going to be scurrying round to Harlyn!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of smoothly sculpted little waves are spinning and snapping at the sand as the tide eases its way off that high tide bank this morning.
The swell is forecast to build and grow while the wind is likely to stay offshore here all day.
It could just be very good here by this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:20 (0.8m) High Tide: 18:10 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 16th April 2018
A blustery south sou’ westerly wind is set to blow all day long while a booming six to eight foot swell should be booming into all Seven Bays.
Harlyn is going to shine with strong offshores hollowing and shaping those thick and more wintery waves as they explode into the bay.
It should be board snappingly, hollow fun all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Southerly, going strong south westerly winds are going to be blowing in an already thick and lumpy, heavy swell as we launch ourselves into this week.
That deep low pressure system that is cruising up and over us is going to slingshot a whole heap of surf our way with six to eight to ten feet of stormy waves banging against our jagged coastline.
Harlyn will be our ‘go-to’ surf spot through Monday and into Tuesday where we can expect some thick and sizeable, hollow and powerful waves to test our skills and equipment right to the limit.
But it is midweek when the magic might happen.
With summer-like air temperatures and a still booming swell, the wind should slide offshore and ease in strength.
Wednesday might just show us some solid six foot surf with offshore winds and sunshine!
And that very pleasant and summery feel should continue right into the weekend with weather and waves aplenty!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
