At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 6 feet
It’s another one of those damp and overcast, mizzle-laden mornings but windless and mild and somehow cosy again.
And the surf continues to roar its way into the bay with four to five to six feet of thick and rolling, grey and heavy looking waves churning themselves inside out as they barrel across the Reef and fold their way from the Point.
Given that it is going to brighten up in a few hours and the wind is going to stay offshore (from the east north east), I think that it is safe to say that we are in for another fabulously fun day of pumping surf!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
That pulsing swell on the the other side of the headland is rolling straight past Harlyn as the tide eases its way to low this morning. And that lightest of east north easterly breezes is onshore here too, so not helping things at all.
But there are little peaks rumbling through every now and again. And when the sun eventually burns through and the breeze slides a few degrees more easterly, it could improve a lot.
But it is the other side for some real waves.
It is pumping over there!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 12th April 2018
The couple to three feet of smooth swell that continues to roll our way is going to be met by more superlight, offshore breezes today and hopefully the sun gods are going to shine on us too!
For a lot of our visitors the surf today is probably going to be much more user friendly than the bigger and thicker, lumpy stuff of earlier in the week and there should still be enough oomph to keep the regular guys happy too!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
All the groms who are enjoying a second week of school holidays are going to be frothing over the surf conditions for this coming week. With light offshore breezes forecast to whisper our way for most of the time and enough bright weather to accompany a pulsing swell there is going to be plenty of enjoyable surf around, with enough variation to satisfy petty much everyone’s taste.
The three to four feet of swell with light northerlies of Monday are soon going to be replaced by six to eight feet of grinding hollowness by Tuesday, the wind gusting in from the north east and blowing those chunky waves inside out as they the tumble and spill our way all day long.
By midweek and then for the rest of the week the swell should settle in the three to four feet range, the breeze continuing from the east, hollowing and shaping those consistent swells.
I think that the weather and surf are just about to start making up for those tedious conditions that reigned through winter maybe!
Anyway, it is looking like a surf drenched week ahead of us with enough fine weather to satisfy visitors and residents alike.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
