At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 5 feet
Ah, that cold and noisy easterly wind has finally eased away, leaving something calmer and milder and less clawing in its place.
A light north westerly breeze is drifting into the bay, far from perfect when it comes to grooming the surf but kind of pleasant compared to the last few days.
And there’s still plenty of surf rolling our way with some thick and heavy looking, three to four foot lumps of waves unfolding across the usual breaks, the middle peak standing out as the tide drops beyond the halfway out stage.
The sky is gradually brightening, the air is warming up and some decent surf is rolling through!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of crumbly little surf is shuffling ashore at Harlyn this morning, the wind lighter and allowing those small waves to shine glassily even if it is a little onshore.
The incoming tide should add just a little extra thickness to it but it is probably going to stay small even so.
But big enough for the school holiday groms to have a ball!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:10 (1.3m) High Tide: 16:07 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 17th April 2019
Ah, we can expect a welcome return of super clean surf conditions, bright sunshine and warm air temperatures today!
A very fun two to three feet of offshore breeze shaped, hollower surf should entertain us all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those screeching cold, offshore winds of the weekend are going to blow themselves out through Monday to be replaced by a boring north westerly through Tuesday before settling to something more pleasant for the rest of the week.
We should be enjoying lots of smooth, clean and pleasant surf in the two to four foot size range all the way through midweek and into the weekend with loads of pleasant weather too but we still have a day or so of not so great stuff to endure before then!
So the week should start out with some solidly churning, wind-hollowed surf being replaced by onshore mush for a day or so before smoothing and calming and being much more enjoyable (and warmer!) as we go towards Easter weekend.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
