At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
A damp and breezy one is greeting us on this more autumn than early summer morning.
The wind is light and from the north west, still carrying that chill but now with enough showers in it to remind you that the schools are on holiday. And it’s making a mess of the already small and mixed up surf too.
A foot or two of weak and slow moving, sloppy little waves are tumbling into the bays, that cold wind just adding to the reluctance of an early morning one.
Things should brighten up eventually and that should at least make it look a little more inviting.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Tiny waves are being blown into an empty Harlyn Bay this morning, the sand still glistening after a short and light downpour.
There’s nothing to surf on here today but otherwise it’s as peaceful and relaxing a spot as you might ever want to linger at.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:30 (2.1m) High Tide: 15:32 (5.7m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 8th April 2021
South westerly breezes should blow milder air our way today and we might even enjoy some clearer skies too.
The surf is likely to be flat, flat and choppy for that matter but otherwise we should be in for a pleasant enough day.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Last week’s settled and fine conditions have been replaced by something much more unsettled, uncomfortable and very chilly for this week.
A hard blowing northerly wind is going to blast arctic air our way as we enter Easter week, the Atlantic being dominated mainly by a vast high pressure system, resulting in very little in the way of decent surf for at least a little while.
Small and choppy surf is going to be bouncing around for the first few days of the week, that wind chilling the air and dulling the sky too but hopefully by midweek the wind should calm, staying mainly onshore but allowing some brightness to shine through maybe.
But it’s likely to be the end of the week before we can enjoy some cleaner surf conditions, the breezes switching offshore but maybe then flattening the already tiny and weak surf.
So, a week to catch up on all those jobs that we didn’t get around to during those months and months of lockdown, readying ourselves to open back up to greet all of our happy little customers again, as of the 12th April!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great Easter Week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
