At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
Brrrr, baby it’s cold outside!
There’s a brisk north easterly galloping off the moors this morning, chilling and cooling anything in its way, a breezy hint that winter is on its way. It feels freezing but it is actually 8 or 9 degrees (Celsius). But that’s cold enough on this lazy ‘clocks back’ Sunday morning.
So if you can tear yourself away from that warm and snug, cosy little nest than there are some waves waiting.
A couple of feet of offshore manicured little waves, spilling and peeling across the almost high tide banks. That high tide affording some shelter from the wind. And shelter is going to be the name of the game today, finding somewhere protected from those high-level north easterly gusts is going to be priority.
But if you can then you’re in for some fun gliding on those hollow little waves!
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
That north easterly wind is hurrying into Harlyn this morning, tossing and turning the two to maybe three feet of chopped and slopped surf.
There are loads of peaks bouncing around the bay but it is mainly windblown stuff with no real oomph to it.
Better the other side today, at least it’s clean and hollow over there.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:44 (1.3m) High Tide: 19:39 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 29th October 2018
That north easterly wind is likely to be still sending shivers if you’re out there but it should have calmed a lot by this morning.
But the damage will have been done! Any little waves that have been heading our way are likely to have been flattened by the weekend’s blow against them.
We’ll be lucky to see anything more than shin high trickling through today!
Otherwise it is looking like a bright and cheery day and quite pleasant enough out of the wind.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those cold offshores are likely to continue well into the start of this week, a slower but still very chilly north easterly wind frustrating us by providing ultra clean conditions for the all but flat surf.
Monday is likely to be tiny at best, sunny and bright and cheery but with only tiny little immaculately shaped waves.
We might just enjoy some more rideable surf by Tuesday but still only in the foot or two range and then only if we’re lucky. All the time the wind, much quieter now, remains offshore from the north east.
And so it’s likely to be midweek before we see a change, the wind switching to the south west overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday morning bringing milder air our way and also supporting a new swell as it arrives.
So the back half of the week will offer some bigger but choppier surf at our main breaks with smaller but neater little waves managing to get around to Harlyn.
And then the weekend is starting to look big, real big!
But that is a long way off yet!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
