At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 feet.
Dark and rain filled lumps of cloud are hovering in the distance offering the promise of a downpour or two if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time on an otherwise bright and cheery morning!
The breeze is light but from the north north west, so it is messing the surf up, chopping and slopping an otherwise quite lined up if bumpy three to four foot swell.
So the surf isn’t great but it is bigger than it looks with a lot of water moving about too. As the tide drops out it will probably be okay for a testing mess about.
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet.
A couple to three feet of sloppy and weak looking surf is struggling onto the beach as the tide hits the halfway mark on its way to high.
The breeze is only light but it is straight onshore, from the north west.
The shape of those waves should improve just a little as the tide rises and not being as thick or heavy as the other side of the headland there should at least be the the chance of some fun for the kids (of any age!).
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:19 (1.3m) High Tide: 09:58 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 3rd April 2017
A southerly going south westerly wind combined with a solid and building swell indicates that a busy day at Harlyn is on the cards!
Starting out at only a couple of feet or so over there, those waves should steadily grow in size through the day.
We can expect to be surfing 4 to 5 feet, low tide slam-downs by the evening, those sand-drenched and hollow waves crashing in in style!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A thick and lumpy, fast moving and windswept swell is going to growl its way in to start off this week!
The fresh south westerly, Harlyn friendly winds of Monday will soon be replaced by a gusting north westerly wind, making a mess of the five or six foot surf through Tuesday.
And then conditions should settle.
By midweek we can expect lighter breezes, still from the north to start with but eventually shifting north eastern (offshore), as high pressure conditions settle in.
Smaller but much cleaner and more organised surf should continue to dance our way throughout the rest of the week, the breezes light, the weather set fine and the surf enticing.
Yep, we should be in for a good week once these fronts pass by!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
