At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
A bright golden sunrise is contrasting against the dull darkness of a rainy nighttime, a neutral grey gradually stealing its way above us this morning.
But the air is calm, the birdsong lively and the waves roaring.
Three to four feet of unsure but energetic swell is shuffling onto the shallow sandbars and reefs, tripping up before reeling to shore on a halfway out, dropping tide. Some of those waves are short but super hollow, others are fat and hesitant.
Give it a couple of hours and it should all improve again, unless the wind builds and makes a mess of things.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A couple of feet of glassy little close-outs are slapping the sand as the tide drops out here this morning, the set waves being just a bit bigger than you would expect after seeing the other side.
The forecast is for south westerly winds later so it should keep its shape her all day, building on this afternoon’s tide.
It could just be fun here from lunchtime on!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:16 (1.0m) High Tide: 17:08 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 29th March 2018
Light onshore breezes shouldn’t have too much effect on the five to six feet of rolling surf that will be pushing into our bays and coves today, maybe making for sloppier conditions through the afternoon but allowing some cleaner ones early and later.
We might even enjoy a some pleasant stretches of sunshine too!
Surf Conditions for Easter Weekend
Those north westerly winds are going to be blowing through on Saturday making a mess of the three foot swell that will be rolling in, frustrating our Easter visitors in their search for something more organised.
The lifeguards are on duty over the Easter holidays and so can offer advice as to where and when it might be safest to dive in, especially useful if you’re not familiar with the area and have kids with you.
But Saturday should provide loads of fun waves if not that wonderfully shaped for the more experienced guys.
By Sunday we should be enjoying some pleasantly shaped but really small waves at all of our favourite surf breaks. A foot or two of curling and looping, fun little waves to glide across, even if the weather turns out to be bit on the dull side.
A gusting southerly wind will blow a few showers our way through Easter Monday, a four to five foot swell rolling in at our main breaks.
Harlyn could be the place on Monday, a couple to three feet of offshore shaped and hollowed fun little waves hopefully becoming a little more powerful than you might expect as the day goes on.
Have a great Easter weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
