At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
Well I suppose that this weather is exactly as it should be for the end of April, a gusty westerly wind is pushing a few short, sharp showers our way while keeping temperatures down in the low teens.
And the surf is reflected by that too with three to four feet of chopped and slopped, aimless surf wandering into the bay as the tide drifts towards low.
The sunny bits should outlast the showery bits by a long way and the surf should be less frantic as the tide shuffles back up the beach through midday, especially if the wind calms as forecast.
No, it’s not great but it will probably end up being a little more fun than expected!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A couple of feet of bothered little waves are hurrying ashore here this morning, the wind too westerly to allow it to be as clean or sharp as we would like. But the tide is dropping towards low, the wind is forecast to ease in strength through the morning, the occasional much bigger set is lumbering through and so you have to think that the pushing tide might just bring some much better surf our way.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see some very pleasant two to three feet surf tumbling through this afternoon.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:58 (1.5m) High Tide: 15:53 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 27th April 2018
Northerly winds are set to make a mess of the two to three feet of weak and aimless swell today.
Throw in some ‘mixed’ weather and, well, I’m guessing that it’s not going to be the best surf or weather of the year.
Saying that, we might just have some pleasant enough weather to make the surf more tempting through the afternoon.
Or you could just surf trip your way to the other coast?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Oh, it could just turn out to be an okay weekend!
Only small and localised little swells are likely to be lazily drifting our way but the breeze should be calm on Saturday, switching offshore on Sunday.
So Saturday is likely to be a more mixed day, a typical April shower kind of day with only the lightest of onshore breezes drifting down from the north west.
By Sunday the sun should have settled in and the breeze is likely to have eased its way to offshore, a gentle north easterly helping to hold up the two feet of curling and peeling surf.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
