At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Yet another fabulous dawn is bringing in a calm and clear sky’d morning, the birdsong loud, the sky blue and the air still.
The surf is still almost non-existent, those tiny little waves reeling and peeling as smooth as silk, curling and spilling onto the golden sun splashed sand.
You could be torn between a SUP and a longboard today, or if you are fleet of foot and as nimble as an elf, a self-built wooden Alaia, as per Toby Donachie.
Either way, whatever your board of choice you are going to have to choose your time and place carefully to get anything at all out of these little waves today!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s as flat as a tack again at Harlyn this morning, that lightest of breezes still onshore here, keeping a ruffled surface chop on the sea.
It is fabulously beautiful in the early morning sunlight of another gorgeous morning but there are no waves to ride here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:08 (1.6m) High Tide: 16:05 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 24th April 2017
Onshore breezes are going to slop out the tiny surf today but might just also provide some tiny wind slop to ride – if you’re really keen!
It won’t be much more than a foot or so but we should be able to get a sloppy surf in sometime.
Just ahead of high tide will probably be the best of a bad lot!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another week of real small waves and mainly onshore winds is waiting to taunt us!
Starting out with a westerly wind through Monday, it won’t be long before those northerlies return to blow cold air all the way down the coastline.
While Monday might show a couple of feet of sloppy and choppy stuff at the main breaks, Tuesday will be a day of gusting northerlies just reminding us that high summer is still a little way away!
By midweek the wind will be twitching between northerly and north easterly, doing nothing for the swell size and still feeling cold but maybe cleaning up those tiny waves for a short while at the more exposed breaks.
So, it is likely to be one of those weeks when, if you have the time and energy to be completely on it, you might just luck into an hour or two of better than expected and quite fun surf here and there.
Or you could end up running around in circles in a frustrating search for those elusive waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
