At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
The howling wind and swirling rain of only an hour or two ago are already whisking their way across the country this morning as brighter skies and a bit less of a blow are brightening our day.
But the wind is still blustering in, a fussing sou’ wester toppling and swirling the four feet or so of lumpy, rolling swell.
The swell is likely to strengthen through today and the wind should ease in strength through this afternoon while those waves grow in size.
Sounds like a recipe for an afternoon surf on the incoming tide at Harlyn to me!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Harlyn is all peace and serenity this morning, a straggle of early morning swimmers mingling with holiday dogwalkers as tiny waves wash across the high tide banks.
Those waves are just about rideable, one foot, maybe two at the most but they are as pretty as can be! The south westerly wind is offshore here, the early morning sunshine is putting on a show and you can feel that those waves are going to build!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Thursday 27th October 2022
We can expect a rolling four foot swell all day long today with gusting southerly, maybe going south easterly winds messing and slopping those waves at our main breaks for a lot of the time. That wind might just switch offshore for just long enough to allow those spots to shine!
Harlyn will be the ‘go to’ spot for most of the day and we can expect some fun three to maybe four feet of offshore hollowed and exciting surf there pretty much all day.
But with just a little bit of hunting about and keeping your eye on things, we might just enjoy some really good conditions at our other surf breaks through the morning!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Mainly southerly winds are likely to be drawing milder air from the continent up and over us, making for sloppier conditions in the surf maybe but also keeping the weather warm enough to make those sessions more fun.
And by the back half of the week that wind should be pushing through enough swell to fill Harlyn with waves and that same wind will be offshore there.
So, starting out with fairly lacklustre conditions, our biggest decision in the first couple of days of the week will be whether to bump around in sloppier conditions at our main surf breaks or tap dance our way across the ankle slappers of Harlyn.
I’m guessing that we’ll be enjoying some cleaner, sharper conditions in some decent three foot plus surf at Harlyn by midweek on though!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
