At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The air is still this morning, allowing for glassy conditions in the bay, sunlight glistening and glinting off the mirror smooth surfaces of four foot waves as they tumble and spill their way to shore.
Ribbons of grey are streaking the sky and the air is bracing, a gentle reminder that summer is a way off just yet. But it is a fabulous morning with fabulous waves, nobody in sight just yet and promises of better to come as the tide tumbles in.
Harlyn (2*): 0 to 2 feet
The mirror smooth Atlantic is stretching all the way to the distant silver horizon, shallow corduroy lines of titchy, teeny, tiny waves twinkling in the dawn light of what promises to be a very pleasant day.
Occasional one to two foot waves are snapping at the shallow sand, warping across the bay like a snapped whip of water.
It is small here this morning, really small but pretty and tempting and maybe about to improve a fraction as the tide tumbles towards high.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:33 (2.7m) High Tide: 11:14 (5.4m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 9th April 2018
Northerly breezes are maybe going to twitch lightly more towards the north east during the day, allowing the steady three foot swell to break with some gorgeous shape for periods.
With the promise of some bright and cheery spells throughout the day, we could just be enjoying a tiny taste of proper Spring again today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
All the groms who are enjoying a second week of school holidays are going to be frothing over the surf conditions for this coming week. With light offshore breezes forecast to whisper our way for most of the time and enough bright weather to accompany a pulsing swell there is going to be plenty of enjoyable surf around, with enough variation to satisfy petty much everyone’s taste.
The three to four feet of swell with light northerlies of Monday are soon going to be replaced by six to eight feet of grinding hollowness by Tuesday, the wind gusting in from the north east and blowing those chunky waves inside out as they the tumble and spill our way all day long.
By midweek and then for the rest of the week the swell should settle in the three to four feet range, the breeze continuing from the east, hollowing and shaping those consistent swells.
I think that the weather and surf are just about to start making up for those tedious conditions that reigned through winter maybe!
Anyway, it is looking like a surf drenched week ahead of us with enough fine weather to satisfy visitors and residents alike.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
