Constantine (1*): 4 – 5 ft

There’s a brisk northerly wind rattling across the bays this morning, a chilly and gusting wind that is wailing into the left-handers that are attempting to roll across the Reef.
It’s all dull and damp and chilly out there, battleship grey the colour of today.
If you are really keen for a surf then there are those bowling and looping four foot set waves that are stuttering onto the shallower bits, some of the lefts being held up by the wind before freight training towards deeper water, or dry sand!
There is surf and it is three to four feet and some of the lefts are hollow but it doesn’t look like much fun out there. If you have a loved one within reach on this otherwise lazy Sunday morning then you would probably prefer to pull up the duvet and snuggle up for some cosy time!
Harlyn (0*): 2 – 3 ft
It’s pretty grim around here this morning too, that wind whipping straight onshore, blasting head-on into the bay.
The surf is pretty small looking as well, three feet at the biggest?
There are some bigger lumps of water moving past the bay in the distance and the tide is halfway out on the drop but even so, it’s not all that!
And I can’t see much improvement coming our way any time soon.
Well, not today anyway.
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Monday 28th April 2014
The wind should have weakened off by this morning, still staying mainly northerly, veering between northerly and north easterly to start, settling more north westerly later. And the swell should still be a relatively solid couple to three feet, so it should be worth a little look for HTC early or late or maybe Booby’s in the middle?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Low pressure systems are in control for a few days yet, creating mainly damp and breezy weather but keeping at least some surf rolling our way throughout.
Monday might see some brighter and calmer weather, the breeze a sideshore northerly, keeping the lefts open. The surf is likely to have dropped a bit more, two to three feet of bumpy surf hollowing into the wind at best but with cleaner waves to ride early in the morning and late evening too.
It’s going to be midweek before the wind backs to the south west creating a slow and faltering change in the weather, the surf staying pretty much in the three feet and mainly bumpy range.
So, we can expect plenty of surf as we go into the week but maybe not the cleanest. The southwest facing beaches are the most obvious places to check first with maybe Harlyn showing some flair by midweek.
The end of the week and weekend are just starting to look interesting too.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
