Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 ft
At 6.25 a.m.
It’s yet another grey start to the day, the silver surface of the sea merging seamlessly with the silver surface of the sky, a darker band somewhere in-between.
And it’s raining.
And the surf is not all that either.
But, in amongst all that silver and grey is just a hint of brighter stuff, a whiter glare just over there.
And even though the surf is barely a foot, maybe a couple of feet on those very rare sets, there is that look to it, that look of a beginning, a beginning of a new swell – hopefully. The wind is light and from the south sou’ west, just strong enough to put a little surface chop on it all, a little crumble on those little waves.
So, it’s not great this morning but there is something cosy going on, along with the sense of a new swell on the way.
We should be surfing a half decent couple to three feet of fairly lined up but maybe just a little frothy and bumpy surf by late morning.
A lunchtime HTC session maybe?
Harlyn (0*): Flat
No, it is absolutely flat around here this morning at pretty much bang on low tide. There’s a tiny little ripple whip-cracking across the sand every now and then, that wind perfectly offshore, the sand looking interesting for the next swell.
And that next swell should be on its way soon enough. Not big or anything near to big but small and sweetly shaped little offshore groomed snappers should be breaking around here soon enough.
Maybe as soon as this afternoon?

Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th April 2014
A three to four foot, double digit wave-period, smooth and steady swell should be rolling our way all day long!
The wind is set to be not much more than a breeze, a south south easterly breeze at that, gently wafting offshore.
If you have a day off or can wrangle a free pass then today could just be the day to use it!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
So as the Easter holidays wind down, let’s have a look ahead and see what’s in store for us for the week ahead.
The winds are forecast to stay relatively light well into the week and we should avoid most of that more usual and mixed April weather, although it is April and we will see at least the odd shower. With just a tiny bit of luck though it may not be anywhere near as bad as the national forecasts are making out.
Overall, this week is looking good with small but clean waves into Wednesday, picking up to three to four feet during the day as the wind changes to a more onshore south westerly. And that should settle into some decent and solid surf with light, light breezes offshore to start with as we go through the back half of the week. Thursday is looking real good with a rhythmic swell and great wind conditions.
Yep, it’s all looking good for another surf filled week!
Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
