At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet.
It’s a sharp and crisp morning, the clear light of an autumn dawn casting sharp shadows across the beach. And it has that chill bite of autumn to it as well!
The surf is rolling in, three feet plus of fairly close together but steep and reeling waves are smartly exploding offshore. An offshore breeze is smoothing those wave faces right now but it is forecast to veer south west soon, so you’re going to have to be quick if you want to catch these clean conditions.
So far though, it’s all looking good!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet.
A foot or two of sharp and smooth little waves are cracking ashore in the early morning light of a beautiful autumn day!
The breeze is forecast to back further to the south west this morning, staying offshore here while slopping the other side of the headland. So it might get a little busier as the day goes on!
But otherwise it is a fabulous morning with small but gorgeous little waves breaking here!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:22 (2.1m) High Tide: 10:52 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 24th September 2016
The ‘Seven Bays Surf Classic’ contest is ready to roll today and it is likely to roll down to Harlyn!
A chunky and wind-driven four to five foot swell is expected to be rolling our way and that should sling some four foot surf around and into Harlyn. With a growling southerly wind forecast to blast its way through all day long, we could be seeing some gaping barrels teasing and tempting those competitors into spending some time behind the watery curtain, as well as some time in shaking sand from those other parts! It should be board snappingly good fun and excellent entertainment all round!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Big swells and strong winds are aiming our way for the weekend!
The three to four foot swell of Friday is likely to double in size by Saturday morning, the wind building in strength as that growing swell starts to batter our coastline.
Five to Six feet and bigger swells are likely to be driven our way by a strengthening southerly gale throughout Saturday, the wind backing westerly through Sunday but retaining its strength. And that is going to be the way of it for a few days ahead too!
So our sheltered surf breaks are going to be the only options for any surfing this weekend, four to six foot, offshore Harlyn being the most popular choice I would imagine. And that should give the green light for the 2016 Seven Bays Surf Classic contest to run through Saturday!
Yep, it looks as though we could be enjoying our first big and windy, proper Autumn swell this weekend and it should be fun!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
