At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 3 to 4 feet
Another gorgeous day is unfolding about us this morning, the sky cloudless, the breeze calm, the sea blue and the surf pumping.
Three to four feet of glassy swell is rolling into the bay all glistening and glinting in the early morning sunlight.
Right now it’s not at its best but give it just an hour or two and we should have a whole load of peaking and curling waves to play in! And with a neap tide those waves should just about manage to break all the way through the tide.
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
Tiny waves are ricochetting across the sand at Harlyn this morning, that bright, bright dawn sun reflecting off those deep blue little waves as they stand tall before curling ashore.
It is quite beautiful here again this morning but the surf is all happening over the other side of the headland again!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:16 (2.2m) High Tide: 12:26 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 3rd November 2018
A gusting south westerly wind is going to be pushing a growing swell our way through today.
Harlyn is going to be the ‘goto’ spot locally all day long, where it should be three going four feet with offshore winds and building.
Yep, we should be enjoying some hollow and sand dredging barrels all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It looks like we might be in for a change in the weather and surf conditions as this school half term period finally comes to an end after staggering itself over a three week period.
This week should quietly end with some bright enough weather and clean enough surf on Friday, a decent day of three foot fun-in-the-sun surf.
By Saturday though a strengthening southerly wind will be blowing hard and pushing a growing swell our way.
Starting out in the four foot range, we should be seeing six to eight feet of wind ravaged surf battering the main breaks by evening.
Harlyn is likely to be the venue today and that should be four feet and getting bigger through the day, with some hollow shut-down waves just to keep you on your toes.
By Sunday we will be seeing some big, big surf, those winds having backed to the south west and then calming as the day goes on.
So, big Harlyn is likely to start the day but with that wind easing to a south easterly breeze, offshore at our main breaks and so opening up a few more exciting options if you’re fit enough and strong enough and experienced enough!
If that happens before darkness we could just be in for some fairly special and very big surf. With a late teens wave period on a ten foot plus swell height, combined with super light offshore breezes, there could just be some epic waves out there!
Time will tell though.
And then the start of next week looks really very good with a predicted and much more user friendly six foot swell gliding in against light offshore breezes along with some very pleasant Autumn sunshine.
So, there’s a real mix of conditions to look forward to this weekend with some big and gnarly surf followed by some testing but almost perfect surf to enjoy afterwards.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
