At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet.
A bright but fairly blustery morning is blowing across the bay this morning, those cartoon clouds bouncing merrily across the sky, riding along on a brisk north westerly wind.
The surf is bigger than it has been for a week or two with a decent three to four feet of windswept swell lines crashing about.
The wind is forecast to eventually slip around to a more southerly direction but that might take most of the day to happen. In the meantime there are some chunky if choppy waves to ride if you want to!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet.
A couple of feet of onshore blown waves are crashing ashore a couple of hours before low tide this morning with thick and crunchy little walls snapping across the sand.
The wind is forecast to ease throughout the morning and gradually back to the south west through this afternoon while the swell should stay steady, if not build just a little more.
And so you have to think that there could be a whole different world of surf here by this afternoon or evening with a couple of feet of offshore smoothed and cleaner surf expected by then.
If you’re patient enough!?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:26 (1.5m) High Tide: 15:24 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 4th May 2016
We could just be enjoying a reasonable three feet or so of smooth and evenly spaced surf today with offshore winds and a sky full of sunshine!
An eleven second wave period and a south south easterly wind combo should produce some very pleasant conditions indeedio!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A bit of a lacklustre start to the week is going to be brightened quite quickly as the May Day celebrations ease into the beer sodden memory banks, with a taste of more Summer-like weather promised by the week’s end.
The surf should improve too – after a slow and onshore blown start.
So, following Monday’s teasing surf; onshore and messed up at Constantine, too small but absolutely pristine at Harlyn, Tuesday is likely to be filled with north westerly, onshore, wind-blown and chopped up surf everywhere. That might change by the evening with Harlyn managing to clean itself up. And at least the weather should be brighter and cheerier.
Midweek though could just start to show some really, really good conditions!
An expected three to four feet of swell should build through to four to five feet as the week ends, offshore, south easterly winds grooming those waves into smooth lines of hollow breaking waves!
Yes, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and into the weekend could just be wave-filled and sunny, all warm and pleasant with some solid swells curling our way.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
