Constantine (3*): 3 feet and building
at 7.20 a.m.
It’s a bright and very breezy start to the day, the car thermometer already showing 17 deg C which is a little unexpected for this early on Halloween morning!
The wind is howling though, a brisk south south easterly, blowing hard and offshore against what looks like a building swell.
Right now there’s a couple to three feet of slow pushing swell but it it is on the build, as all the forecast sites are showing too. You do have to hope that this wind isn’t going to stop it from building too much though, there is a lot of wind for that swell to push in against.
Meanwhile, the sky is bright, the air is warm, there are plenty of waves coming through and the tide is on the push. If you find somewhere tucked beneath a headland to protect those waves from the wind (and there are a few of them on this raggedy coast) then you are likely to have a really good session.
And it should build all day!
We recently received our main delivery of O’Neill winter wetsuits and how gorgeous are they! So, if you’re looking to be warm and cosy this winter then drop in on us, we will probably have something to your liking!
By the way, don’t forget that we are clearing out loads of summer wetsuits. We have rails of them from generally around 30, 40, and even 50% off, starting from £50.
That’s Xcel, O’Neill and Alder with only one or two Quikky suits left.
So, if you’re around the area this week, it might just be worth having a little look-see!
Harlyn (0*): Flat to 6 inches
There’s six inches of lined up and peeling surf turning itself inside out as it winds across the sand here this morning. The wind is howling offshore, blowing into those tiny lines and hollowing them into tiny cylinders.
It’s too small right now but by this evening that might have changed – if the swell can win the battle against this wind!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:59 (2.3m) High Tide: 10:25 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 1st November 2014
A still mild but maybe not quite so warm, only slightly more typical Autumn day should be showing a rolling four to five foot plus swell with a blustery south westerly wind.
If you know the area at all then you know that this is the perfect recipe for Harlyn!
The weekend neap tides are only small and so I guess that we will be enjoying a half decent three feet of offshore fun-in-the-autumn-sun at Harlyn all day today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A new swell generating depression has settled out to the west tracking lazily to the north while throwing some swell our way and building into something a little more substantial through the weekend.
And now, as always, it’s down to the winds to decide what conditions will be like when those swells reach us.
Friday will probably see a building swell pushing hard onto our beaches, the wind freshening as well as temperatures reach new heights for the last day of October. Starting out offshore, the wind is likely to be strong only very slowly backing more southerly and then, ultimately south westerly but maybe not until the evening. Whether the swell will build enough to show anything worthwhile at Harlyn, well we’ll have to wait and see how much the wind blocks that swell but there should be by the evening.
By the weekend though there should be plenty of surf to ride at Harlyn, the wind south westerly and steadily blowing along with a rolling four feet or so of thick and punchy swell.
Yep, it looks like another three footish, bright and breezy Harlyn weekend lies in wait!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
