Surf Report for Armistice Day, Saturday 11th November 2017

At 7.45 a.m:  

Constantine (0*):  6 to 8 feet  

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, 

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning 

We will remember them.”

It’s a wild and woolly one this morning, that cold nor’ wester screeching down the coast blasting squalls and downpours in its path.
The surf is a blown out mess of raggedy six foot lumps of water looking for somewhere to collapse.
No, there’s nothing here to tempt you in, not today.
The far coast is our only option again!   

 

Harlyn (0*):  3 to 4 feet  

Three or four feet of ragged and jagged, broken surf is being flung into the bay by a swirling nor’ westerly wind.
It’s blowey, it’s wet and it’s cold. But it’s exciting and exhilarating and alive.
The tide might just move those waves into a tiny bit more shelter as the morning goes on but really, it’s not great!  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  17:34  (2.3m)              High Tide:  10:49  (6.3m)

Surf Forecast for Remembrance Sunday, 12th November 2017  

Gusting north westerly winds are going to continue to keep the air temperatures down while blowing out the hesitant four to five feet of choppy surf.
It’s another south coast day today!  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

Onshore winds are expected all weekend, that north westerly airflow making itself very much at home.
Our best bet for a better surf is Saturday afternoon when that wind should be quieter and might just drift down more from the north. That should allow those more south facing breaks the chance of cleaning up a lot compared to the last week or two!
But take your time, the wind is likely to be gusting hard in the morning and might just take a while to calm.
The north westerly wind will continue through Sunday but not too strongly, that autumn brightness perhaps making it just a little more appealing.
Light breezes are expected for Monday if you’re thinking of stretching the weekend out, combining with clear skies and some welcome sunshine to make that foot or two swell much more enticing!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
