Surf Report for Bonfire Night, Sunday 5th November 2017

At 7 15 a.m:  

Constantine (1*):  3 to 4 feet  

It’s a huffing and a puffing out there this morning!
A busy little north westerly wind is cooling temperatures while pushing and pulling and bullying the three to four feet of drunken waves that are washing around the bay.
It’s not the enticing scene that we hope for on an occasional Sunday morning but it is beautiful in its own natural way.
I personally feel as though I’ve had enough practice paddling through choppy, sloppy and unpredictable, broken surf but then that’s why the guys who keep on doing it have got so good!
Be safe if you’re burning stuff tonight!

 

Harlyn (0*):  2 feet  

A couple of feet of windtorn and battered surf is collapsing onto the sand here this morning, all shapeless and weak and offputting.
South Coast anybody?  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  12:11  (0.7m)              High Tide:  18:03  (7.8m)

Surf Forecast for Monday 6th November 2017  

The wind should calm down and shift to the south west today, still onshore at our main surf breaks but at least swell supporting and it’s offshore at Harlyn too (if it gets big enough!).
We should see some brighter and drier weather as well, although there will always be the odd shower lurking in the background to be aware of.
So, tiny but clean Harlyn versus bigger but choppier main breaks!?  

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

The brighter and milder south westerly wind of Monday will be quickly replaced by a return to north westerlies by Tuesday, just as the swell builds up to a decent size.
Those bigger, five to six feet plus waves of Tuesday and Wednesday will be windblown and raggedy with only the slimmest of chances of something cleaner on Wednesday morning as the wind hits direct north.
And then as the wind eases and backs more westerly, the surf eases away too.
So, after Monday’s choice between clean but tiny surf at Harlyn versus bigger but choppier main breaks, our decision will be whether its worth the journey over to the far coast in search of cleaner conditions or settle for more onshore chop on this coast!
The weather should be mainly fine for most of the week though!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
