Constantine (2*): 2 ft
It’s quite a cosy morning this morning, a silver grey blanket of cloud snuggling over us, keeping the temperatures mild while muffling the birdsong as a small but pleasantly shaped two feet or so of swell slides into the bay.
The breeze is light, as light as can be really but it is drifting in onshore and so those waves are a little bit crumbly and just a little bumpy with a weak little rip here and there. It is fun looking but a long way from being any better than okay.
The tide is pretty much half way out on the drop and some forecasts are showing that breeze to swing slightly offshore (north easterly) and so you have to think that it might just all improve towards lunchtime and onwards.
But it is okay now, so it looks like we should have at least some fun waves to surf all day, maybe improving through the afternoon a little!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s not so good around here this morning, the tiny and sloppy surf indicating how northerly this breeze is, even though it is so light.
There’s barely a foot or so of wishy washy, grey and sloppy surf trickling onto the sand. No, it’s the other side today for a fun surf!
It is good to see Food for Thought back up and running for another season and Chris (Rea) has replaced his container HQ for Harlyn Surf School in time for the season too. Not quite as nice to see the pile of dumped furniture and other household junk just dumped in the corner. Fly tipping eh, I just wonder why?

Surf Forecast for Saturday 12th April 2014
The biggest difference today is likely to be the wind slipping around to the west. Otherwise it’s all looking pretty similar to the last few days; a little grey and sombre here and there, brightening up for moments occasionally, the surf rolling in at a couple of feet, all just a little bumpy and crumbly but otherwise okay.
The surf could be just a bit bigger today, still keeping that 10 second or more wave-period and so keeping just that little bit of extra oomph to it.
There might even just be a brighter barbeque chance for the evening too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The week started out as a damp ‘n breezy one with fresh westerly winds buffeting the coast and swirling the surf. But the sun has been taking control for moments through each day while that wind has weakened to a breeze, shifting back and fore between the north and the west, onshore at most places but light enough to maybe get away with it for most of the time. There’s a steady couple of feet of swell being carried our way by that wind, a rolling swell that should produce some fun and very surfable two to three foot waves well into the weekend, maybe building a bit more for Sunday. All of the main breaks should be seeing enough surf to get going on, maybe getting a little crumbly and sloppy through the afternoons, cleaner in the mornings and evenings. Sunday is starting to look bright and cheerful with some bigger surf rolling our way too. So a weekend of fun surf and pleasant and bright enough weather awaits, a typical early spring weekend really, becoming really quite pleasant by Sunday! Have a great weekend, whatever you’re doing!
