Constantine (2*): 2 ft
Bright sunshine is highlighting the glasslike surf this morning, glinting and glistening on those peaking and folding waves.
There’s a decent couple of feet of sheet glass surf sliding into the bay this morning with the odd three foot peak wedging onto the Reef. You do have to wait for those ones but they are occasionally surprising the birdlife onshore.
There is a canopy of thinly veiled cloud cover above us, that sunrise slipping the brighter weather under it but that should all disappear soon enough while the hedgerows are trapping those waves of mist over the fields.
Yep, it’s a very pleasant start to a promising day of easy, gliding surf!
Harlyn (0*): 1 ft
It’s almost flat around here this morning, tiny lines visible from a long way out as they drift through that almost steam that is rising from the sea’s surface. But those waves are shin high at best, those sets of sets no higher than knee high.
It is very pretty, especially with that sharp and bright sunlight piercing the valley at the back of the bay, floodlighting those misty lines of tiny swell but there’s nothing much to ride a surfboard on, not here, not today!

Surf Forecast for Friday 11th April 2014
We can expect more of that two foot swell to be rolling in today and there’s a double digit wave-period to it giving it all a bit of extra power for its size.
The wind is going to be the decider, some forecasts showing nothing more than the lightest of breezes, others predicting a steady north westerly to blow for most of the day, strong enough to make for a bit of an onshore crumble.
I’m guessing that it’s going to end up being one of those days when it’s clean and sparkling early in the morning and later in the evening, a bit of slack onshore stuff through midday and into the early afternoon.
But that can be fun too.
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
The week started out as a damp ‘n breezy one with fresh westerly winds buffeting the coast and swirling the surf. But the sun is starting to take control while that wind has weakened to a breeze, shifting back and fore between the north and the west, onshore at most places but light enough to maybe get away with it for most of the time. There’s a steady couple of feet of swell being carried our way by that wind, a rolling swell that should produce some fun and very surfable two to three foot waves over the next few days. All of the main breaks should be seeing enough surf to get going on, maybe getting a little crumbly and sloppy through the afternoons, cleaner in the mornings and evenings. Harlyn should just about have waves too, only a foot maybe and not as clean as you would like it but maybe big enough and clean enough and fun enough for Harlyn fans. So a week of fun surf and pleasant and bright enough weather awaits, a typical early spring week really, once that north chill has disappeared from the wind! Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
