At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
At last that wind has calmed to a breeze, still from the frozen north but a more direct north, so a little more sideshore than onshore to the waves.
So the morning is bright and cheerful, that breeze still real cold but then it is that time of year and there’s some fun looking surf too!
Three feet or so of still quite hesitant surf is shuffling into the bay, the odd bigger set peaking and almost peeling, some of them still tripping over each other but others reeling off when there’s a shallow bit.
Yep, it’s looking fun on a bright but sharply cold morning!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A foot or two of choppy wash is pushing onto that hard, low tide sand here this morning, sea birds racing the wash to pick for worms.
The cold northerly breeze is shivering into the bay with just enough strength to slop those tiny little waves, making it all a little uninviting (as well as tiny!).
So it’s the other side if you’re superkeen for a surf today!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 14th November 2017
A steady west sou’ westerly wind is likely to be supporting the three feet or so of rolling surf that should greet us today.
There’s not much of a swell generator anywhere in the Atlantic just yet and so the waves aren’t going to be that big. That means that Harlyn, always our ‘go to’ spot on a south westerly wind, is unlikely to be any bigger than tiny. So our best option is probably going to be this side of the headland, riding a couple to three feet of fairly sloppy but hopefully fun surf!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Hopefully we have lost those wild north westerly storms to start this week.
Monday should see some calm and pleasant conditions, still with a cold northerly breeze but brighter and calmer and generally easier.
A couple of feet or so of still slopped but much calmer surf might just appeal if you find just the right spot tucked away from that northerly breeze at just the right stage of the tide.
By Tuesday the wind is likely to be gusting in from the west south west, a milder direction and more supportive of those thicker if no bigger swells.
By midweek we are likely to be seeing some fairly typical late autumn, overcast weather with that three foot swell rolling in to the main surf breaks, all a bit sloppy and thicker, while teasing a foot or two into the sheltered spots, just to offer a choice.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
