Constantine (0*): 3 – 4 ft
It’s a little reminder that we are not yet into the warmer season just yet, the wind is blowing strong this bright and sunny morning, a cold and chilling wind more like winter than spring. Blasting in from the west north west, the fresh and gusting wind is bringing all that chill air down on top of us and it’s also making a mess of the surf as well!
There’s maybe three to four feet of mixed up swell bouncing round out there but it is a mixed up madness of a mess, not inviting in any way, an off-putting mix of sloppy waves and vicious currents.
It will calm down gradually but only gradually and is likely to take most of the day to do so.
No, you don’t want to be surfing here, not today.
Let’s have a little look over at Harlyn but in this wind it is likely to be a bit the same, just smaller.
And while I think about it, Harlyn is being overseen by the lifeguards this Easter holiday!
Harlyn (1*): 2 ft
It’s pretty small around here this morning, a couple of feet of windswept and bumpy looking surf, quite snappy as it bites the sand but still lumpy and mixed up. This wind seems to be gusting more than was forecast.
There are waves to be ridden here and it should improve, if only a fraction, as the tide bumbles up the beach to it’s midday high. There will be just a little shelter and the wind should ease too, if only slightly.
It’s not going to be great, barely good even but you will probably find a little fun out here later.

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 9th April 2014
A bright and cheerful day is waiting to greet us today, the wind having eased off and the sun asserting itself at last.
A small, foot or two of swell should be gently washing in, enough to keep our Easter visitors happy in the sunshine, maybe a little frustrating for the grom crew who are off school. So there’s likely to be more mayhem around the shop as they look for distractions.
But with those light west south westerly breezes not affecting the surf too much, even the grooms might find enough surf to keep them happy through most of midday.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The week has started out as a damp ‘n breezy one with fresh westerly winds buffeting the coast and swirling the surf. But the sun should be taking control by Tuesday while that wind shifts just to the north, a brisk west nor’ westerly chilling the temperature.
There’s a steady three to four foot swell on its way too, a rolling swell merrily carried along by that same wind.
All of the main breaks should be seeing plenty of four foot plus surf throughout the first few days of this week, more of that rolling stuff with rips and bumps and peaks aplenty.
Harlyn should have waves too, a couple to three feet in general, not as clean as you would like it but clean enough and fun enough for most.
So a week of fun surf and pleasant and bright enough weather awaits, a typical early spring week really, once that north chill has disappeared from the wind!
Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
