At 8.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind has eased this morning, still lightly gusting in from the north west but quieter and milder than it has been.
The surf is still feeling the effects though with three to four feet of still slopped and chopped, bumpy surf washing around the bay. The sky is a paler shade of grey than of late, maybe hinting at something milder to come, if not that much drier.
In the meantime it’s still a little mizzly and drizzly with three to four feet of windslopped surf to play in if you’re keen enough.
Harlyn (0*): 3 feet
A couple to three feet of muddy stream tinted and onshore slopped surf is washing onto the high tide bank at Harlyn this morning, the air a little warmer but the sky that constant grey, well maybe little lighter than it has been.
Keep your eyes on it here today, there might just be better surf her this afternoon as the swell solidifies and the wind eventually backs to the south west (offshore here!). But it might be tomorrow before that happens!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 23rd March 2018
Fresh south westerly winds are going to be blowing some more rolling swells our way, as well as a whole bundle of rain sodden cloud bundles.
Harlyn should be the surf break of choice today, a half decent three feet or hopefully slightly bigger waves to play on as they are shaped into something better by that wind blowing offshore here.
And it should all improve as the day(s) go on.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks as though we should be enjoying some south westerly winds this week, along with some more thick, heavy and sizeable rolling winter swells.
Although those north westerly winds are going to open the week with onshore conditions all along the coast, the wind should veer to the south west soon enough, still onshore at our favourite breaks but offshore at our sheltered north facing breaks.
Those wintery swells are going to build into the week too, getting into the ‘big’ range through midweek and maybe getting real big by the back half of the week.
But you know what will happen then don’t you? Yep, the wind will kick back to north westerly, just to chop and slop those big, big waves!
Thank goodness for the south coast! We have had some fabulous surf over over there since the start of the year and it looks like that is set to continue through the end of this week too!
So, shame about the weather but with just a little bit of looking and seeking we should find some excellent conditions each day this week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
