Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet and foggy
at 6.45 a.m:
It’s another foggy start to the day, a proper wrecking day when the baritone boom of Arnold’s Trevose fog horn is dearly missed.
A brief glimpse of the surf through that thick blanket of fog reveals some glassy and smart four foot surf. But that visibility has quickly closed down again, not boding well for the rest of the day.
That fog cover is cosy and snuggly and would be great if we knew that it would lift sooner rather than later but that’s not guaranteed! We could be in lo-vis shutdown all day long.
But we can hope!
And if the sun does burn through then we will be enjoying a fabulous day of three to four to five foot surf with super clean conditions!
Right now though, you won’t be able to see where to paddle out, all the time knowing that it is gloriously bright and warm and clear just over there!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
Luckily there is a gap in the fog as I arrive here too.
So the one to two feet of pushing little surf can be seen as the tide slowly drops out.
I guess that there should be little waves here all day but again, it is going to be dependant on whether or when the fog lifts as to whether you will want to surf here today. And if it does clear, the other side is promising to be better than good anyway!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 16th April 2015
We are going to be worrying about the fog again today, hoping that conditions will settle and allow some clear and bright weather to highlight that so far quite wasted swell.
If the air clears we should be in for a great day of surf; three feet, offshore and clean.
Or we could be fogbound again, enduring the frustration of knowing that great waves are breaking out in the gloom somewhere but unable to see them!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We have been enjoying a settled week filled with bright and cheery, mainly calm weather – when the fog lifts, that steady three foot swell beating a regular rhythm as it reaches our shores.
We can expect most of our main surf breaks to have good to better surf for most of this week, the wind staying light and swinging offshore for periods of time.
Wednesday is likely to be another day of three footish surf in the sun, if the morning fog lifts! Glassy conditions will be welcoming in the early morning, a light south easterly wind breezing across shore through the rest of the day
Thursday is likely to be still offshore but a bit chilly and a bit bumpier on the water.
So, all in all a pretty good week of surf and weather is hiding away behind those fog banks!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
