At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 foot
The bay is putting on a show this morning with a splendid multi-coloured sky being ushered along by the most threatening bundle of rain cloud.
The sea is that blue, that deepest of turquoise shades.
But it is freezing!
That icy blast is whipping down the coast threatening the spring-blooming wax bushes on its way, probably resulting in yet another increase in board wax prices later on just to add to all the other price hikes eh.
Anyway, the surf this morning ain’t good; a foot or two at most, all wibbly wobbly and it is FREEZING!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Sand is grating the paintwork in the carpark at Harlyn this morning, that icy northerly wind screeching down from the cold lands, blast-freezing the chopped out and small, unwelcoming surf.
And yet, it is still a pleasant place to be blown about!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:59 (0.5m) High Tide: 18:49 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 2nd April 2022
The breeze will continue from the North but should lighten up as we go into Saturday morning. But the surf isn’t likely to improve a lot. We can expect a foot of weak and sloppy surf at our main breaks and that at the peak of the seven and a half metre Spring tide.
It should be bright and sunny for most of the time though.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well, the clocks have sprung forward, the daffodils are filling our lanes, upcountry schools are breaking up for Easter and ….. it was snowing in Truro this morning.
We’re in for a chilly weekend, cooled by that continuing northerly breeze bringing cold, cold air down from the freezing lands further north.
We should see a shift in the breeze to the north east as we go into Saturday and at least that is offshore at our main surf breaks, offering a chance to clean up and tidy the tiny surf.
By Sunday we should be enjoying smoother and glassier conditions, the surf remaining in the one to two foot size range but with more shape than the last day or two. But be quick, the north westerlies will return by the afternoon to chop and slop that small surf!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
