At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A surprisingly mild and pleasant, light breeze is drifting offshore this morning, meeting only a couple of feet of smooth swell beneath clear blue sky.
Not quite the day that was forecast but I guess that it could all change soon enough.
In the meantime, once the tide eases back off those high tide depths we should be enjoying gliding on some small but pretty little peelers.
Get on it soon though, once the wind changes, both the weather and surf will most likely deteriorate.
Although those waves should get bigger, so maybe tiny Harlyn will start to show?
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The surf is fairly flat around here this morning, those tiny little high tide ripples making for some beautiful images but not really surfable.
I’m still confident that there might just be some tiny but fun little waves around here later on this afternoon but we are going to have to wait and see!
In the meantime it’s the more exposed west and south westerly facing beaches that have all the waves this morning.

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 6th March 2018
Onshore winds are going to be chopping the surf at our preferred surf breaks, starting out chilly and from the north west in the morning, easing to the south west by lunchtime.
If the surf is pushed up enough by lunchtime then Harlyn could just be fun through the afternoon in those offshore conditions.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After staring out gently with light offshore breezes helping the surf to look and break its best, the wind is going to shift to the south west for most of the rest of the week.
And so with the swells building into the four to five foot range by midweek, Harlyn is looking like the goto break locally.
And pretty good Harlyn it should be too!
Three to four feet of offshore shaped quite crunchy surf should tempt us all in, the weather feeling quite mild after last week’s mini-freeze.
Yep, a pleasant week of fairly typical Harlyn surf awaits, with smaller but cleaner conditions expected for next weekend.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
