Constantine (1*): 1 ft
It’s a beautiful morning once again, a golden sunburst of a dawn smoothly rising above us, that fat moon still hanging over the Reef, the breeze just a whisper. The birdsong is crazy out there, that wild dawn chorus of desire.
But the surf isn’t all that.
One foot tall crisp and curling snappers are slapping ashore, not really rideable an hour or so ahead of high tide but probably presenting a longboard glide when the tide drops out.
So far that breeze (although there is barely a breath) is offshore but forecast to slip onshore through this morning, hopefully staying super light until early afternoon when the sea breezes kick in. And there is a thin and hazy but very definite film of cloud cover just over there which might slide over us too. But right now it is a fabulously gorgeous morning, with the promise of a knee high glide on a longboard later!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
No, it is flat, flat around here again this morning, a beautiful place to spend a moment but as flat as flat can be.
Anyone for a SUP?

Surf Forecast for Friday 18th April 2014
Ah, we are in for another day of tiny surf with a return of light offshores and wall-to-wall sunshine.
The surf is likely to be knee-high at best and to catch that we are going to have to pick just the right time at just the right place.
Those lazy, summer like days seem to be upon us already!
Surf Conditions for Easter Weekend
High pressure has been in control so far this week providing dry and settled and bright weather with calm winds and blue skies. And we should be able to enjoy a few days more of this early taste of summer yet.
The swell has eased off, that half decent three foot swell dropping to a shin to knee-high but solid little fun swell, just powerful enough to get a longboard gliding, maybe even a fish at those certain stages of the tide.
The wind is forecast to slip onshore through Thursday but staying light, not much more than a breeze before slipping back to a more easterly going south easterly direction as we go into the weekend, gently blowing direct offshore, grooming those tiny, just rideable waves to perfectly shaped little things.
So to end the week it is likely to be only small, a foot or so at best. But it should stay bright and cheerful and pleasant enough to get you scurrying after a longboard!
Have a great Easter, whatever you’re doing!
