At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet
Bright and crisp sunshine is shining down on us this morning, a light breeze drifting in from the north west again and just adding a chilly nip to the air.
The surf has dropped loads today with barely a foot or two of ruffled and tussled little waves drifting onto the high tide shorebreak. But it is pretty much bang on high tide right now and so things should improve on the drop, those little waves becoming a little snappier as the bay shallows out.
And the breeze is forecast to remain just a breeze until this afternoon when the sea breeze effect will kick in and chop up the surf that little bit more.
But before then there should be plenty of fun little ones to surf one, certainly enough to keep the kids happy on their Easter break!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s pretty much flat at Harlyn this morning with six inches or so of glassy and peeling, gorgeous little mini-waves spinning across the high tide sandbank.
Why can’t it keep this shape when it’s three feet and bigger!?
Anyway, there’s nothing to surf on here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:57 (0.8m) High Tide: 18:47 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday12th April 2017
A couple of feet of close-fetch, localised windswell is as much as we can look forward to riding today!
The wind is forecast to be a steady north westerly which is likely to put enough chop onto those little waves to make it more inviting to the fly boys and their air jumps. There should be enough ramps around to boost for the heavens but for the rest of us it’s probably going to be a bit more bogging!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
High pressure continues to control the weather systems this week but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we can expect a continuation of horizon-to-horizon sunshine, we might very well see a lot of haze and thin cloud trapped beneath that high here and there.
And we are going to see some north westerly, onshore winds through most of the week, making for sloppier surf conditions than we have been enjoying for a little while now along with a chilling bite. Tie all that in with only a small swell and we are looking at a bit of a mediocre week of surf following that wonderful weekend!
Saying all that though, there should be at least a couple of feet of surf throughout the week and the weather should continue to be mild and pleasant. So the kids should be happily occupied on their school easter break!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
