Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
at 7.20 a.m.
Another blustery morning is brightening above us, the surf sloshing around outside the bay still being jostled and barged by that biting, north westerly wind.
It is lighter and brighter out there but the wind continues to sting and chill, a gusting wind that is still pushing the odd squall along the horizon and occasionally right over us.
It’s not the place to come for a relaxing, fun surf today, there’s only four to five to six feet of mixed up and messy junk surf out there this morning but the beach has that winter attractiveness to it, cold and barren looking to some maybe but beautifully alive and vibrant and exciting to others.
But there ain’t no surf worth riding! Not here, not today!
Harlyn (0*): 3 feet
And the wind continues to howl in here this morning as well, making a mess of those three foot waves. It’s not pretty and not attractive but the forecasts are showing that the wind should ease off as the day goes on.
But even if it does ease up, that wind will continue to blow from the north west, onshore everywhere on this coast and the surf will need a brisk offshore to tidy it up enough to be appealing. In the meantime, it’s that journey to the south coast again if you want some clean surf!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 5th March 2015
There should be a bit of a change today. The wind is likely to have swung to the south west overnight, offshore at Harlyn and it should have eased in strength a lot. Combine that with the leftover three to four foot windswells of the last few days as well as that bright and clear sunshine and we might just be looking forward to a fun session at Harlyn on the afternoon’s incoming tide.
It’s likely to be not much more than two to three feet but it should be clean and should be fun!
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
The wind seems to be settling into a south westerly direction as the week winds down and the weekend fast approaches.
The swell is likely to continue, a deep low pressure system up to the north west of us continuing to spin six foot plus swells in our direction while high pressure starts to build nearby.
And so the skies should clear allowing plenty of early Spring sunshine to cheer us up all the way through the weekend and well into next week.
All of this points to Harlyn as being the most likely best proposition on this stretch of coast and it should be really very good there throughout the end of the week and all the way through the weekend.
So, four feet, offshore and sunny!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
