At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 5 feet
A silver grey blanket of cloud is snuggling over us this morning making for a warm and humid, cosy kind of start to the day.
The breeze is light, drifting quietly offshore from the south east, not quite strong enough to precisely groom the pumping four feet of close-together, close-fetch swell but not bad either.
The Reef is exploding with action this morning, a couple of guys out already and heaving themselves into a few fast and furious ones.
Yep, there’s going to be a lot of paddling involved today but there should be some thick and chunky rewards barrelling our way too!
And it should only improve all day long!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
Harlyn is looking a lot smaller than expected after seeing Constantine booming but there are some super clean two to three foot peaks crashing in. The breeze is offshore, that thin layer of silver cloud is gradually clearing and the set waves are looking playful and attractive.
There is a bit of a wait for those though.
But as an easier alternative to all that paddling at the more west facing breaks this should be a whole lot of fun – the groms and surf schools are going to love it!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 24th July 2019
Just as you start to find our rhythm and feel this paddling muscles twitching, the breeze changes direction.
Westerly going south westerly breezes will replace those offshore breezes of Tuesday fairly quickly, making the slightly smaller surf at the main breaks feel just as much of a struggle to paddle through.
But Harlyn should shine shape wise.
It’s likely to be only small there but should be glassy and sharp and fun!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a lazy start to the week with sou’ westerly winds pushing in a so-so little swell, conditions should quickly improve.
By Tuesday we should be enjoying a more solid little swell with a double digit wave period swell rolling four feet and bigger of smooth and more organised surf our way.
The breeze is forecast to ease its way to the south east, straight offshore at all of our favourite surf breaks along the coast. Throw in some bright and summery sunshine along with some warm summer temperatures and suddenly we have a potentiallly classic day of surf!
Three to four feet of peaking and peeling surf should be spinning off those surf breaks up and down the coast, all day long!
It’s such a shame that it’s not going to last long!
By Wednesday those winds will have backed to the south west again, onshore at the better spots but still offshore at the sheltered breaks. And the swell should still be big enough to get some fun waves through to Harlyn too.
And then, as temperatures ratchet up during the week, we should see the start of a more sizeable swell rolling our way with southerly and south westerly winds pushing it all along.
So, there should be plenty of surf around this week, changing from immaculate conditions early on to pretty big by the end of the week, while temperatures soar as we go along!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re dong!
