At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 6 feet
This bright and beautiful, gentle start to the day might just be a little misleading, there’s a bank of cloud and fog just over there, hovering over the surf line and ready to tumble onto us.
But hopefully the tide will drag that away through the morning, the same way that it brought it in.
In the meantime, the waves continue to pound their way into the bay, those thick and lumpy peaks trying to seek some shallowness to spin and curl over. It is way, way bigger than you might think from first sight with big gaps between the six to eight feet clean-up sets.
The air is calm and still but those waves could do with a light offshore to give them some more shape.
Overall, it’s looking good again, there’s probably better elsewhere but there are some challenging waves to be ridden here this morning!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of deceptively lazy looking surf is gliding onto the high tide bank at Harlyn this morning, a lumpy glass patina to it all in the early morning sunshine of a promising Spring day.
There is a big fog bank ready to roll our way though and that might chill things a bit.
But once that clears there should be some fun and clean little waves to play in for most of today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:49 (0.8m) High Tide: 08:23 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 20th April 2018
Light north easterly breezes are going to keep the temperatures lower than they might be a little further inland but those same breezes will help to shape and mould that three foot swell into some more pleasant surf at all of our favourite local surf spots.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend is promising to be a pleasantly bright and cheerful, surf filled one with more than a hint of Spring about it.
Saturday should bring a pleasant two to three feet of offshore breeze shaped surf to our bays with plenty of sunshine glinting off those curling waves.
The wind is probably going to strengthen through Sunday, a gusting south westerly, not too strong but enough to bump and ruffle and crumble the surf at our preferred breaks. And it might be a bit small for Harlyn, although it will be squeaky clean around there. The sunshine should help everything to look that little bit better again too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
