At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
The bays are snuggled cosily beneath a blanket of grey this morning, that annoying nor’ westerly wind having eased overnight. And so it’s a peaceful morning with only the lightest of northerly breezes still carrying that colder air our way but allowing that steady rain to pitter patter rather than roar.
The surf is still pretty junky though, surfable but unpredictable and a bit shapeless. It’s one of those days of three feet and so-so surf.
And that wind is probably going to pick up this afternoon.
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
The two feet or so of relaxed looking surf is cleaner than expected with smooth little wave faces tumbling ashore on the lazily rising neap tide.
The sky is grey, the sea is grey and the air is filled with rain but somehow it is still quite pleasant, probably because of the stillness. But that’s going to change soon enough!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:31 (2.5m) High Tide: 10:19 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 9th April 2022
A light northerly breeze is going to continue to ruffle and shake the two to three feet of weakish swell again today but the weather should be brighter, clearer and sunnier to compensate, even though it is still likely to feel chilly in that breeze.
Winter wetsuits are still the way forward for a little while yet!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend looks to be very much a weekend of two halves with a dramatic difference in the surf between Saturday and Sunday!
Northerly breezes will be blowing down the coast through Saturday, fluttering and ruffling the three feet of fairly weak and lazy swell. But the weather, although still very chilly in the wind, should be brighter and more cheerful which should make the surf feel that much better.
By Sunday that wind will have backed to a south easterly direction, blowing straight offshore into a strengthening swell. The wind might be a bit strong through the afternoon but the swell should be solid enough to hold its own.
We should see some hollow and peaking, reeling waves at all of our favourite surf breaks on Sunday!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
