Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
A fabulous day is bursting awake down in the bay this morning!
The palest of milky blue skies is blanketing the shimmering glass sea as the lightest of light breezes drifts the smoke of an early morning leaf burn offshore. A fine layer of early morning frost is glinting from parked cars and crunchy sand, the air temperature low, the sea temperature welcoming.
But there is very, very little surf!
Almost a foot of curling glass peaks are trying to break ahead of high tide but it’s not quite happening.
It might just be worth waiting for somewhere else to break on the dropping tide, preferably somewhere with wave magnet qualities.
And even then don’t forget the longboard!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Well the surf is pretty much flat here this morning but otherwise, what a spectacular place to see!
The warm sea and cold air is creating that exquisite marine layer of light mist ribbons.
The blue, blue sky reflecting off a sea of turquoise as the sun explodes sown the valley behind.
Yep, it really is that gorgeous here this morning!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 30th October 2018
We should be feeling that little bit warmer today as the breeze changes direction, slipping slowly away from the north east to eventually settle to direct westerly. But that might take most of the day to happen so we can look forward to another still but chilly start to the day, the sun gradually warming things up as we go along.
We can also sit back and watch the surf gradually build through today as well.
Staring out almost flat and glasslike, ending up in the two to three foot range but a little bumpy and sloppy by dark.
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!
