At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 feet
There’s dampness in the wind this morning as a squally and dreary blow gusts in from the west.
And deep grey skies are adding to the moodiness of the bay as three feet or so of mixed up and wind tattered swell swirls around the breaks.
There’s not much to surf on here today and it doesn’t look like improving any time soon!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The wind is blustering into Harlyn this morning, a damp and miserable west nor’ westerly ripping the tiny surf into a raggedy and mixed up mess of let down.
Barely a foot of broken and fragmented little surf is dribbling ashore under that grey, grey sky!
Today’s surfcheck quote comes from Dan, Senior Lifeguard Supervisor; ‘today’s the day to book a ticket out!‘.
And he’s not wrong.
You have to wince just a little as those sun bronzed surf gods prepare to re-test to maintain their qualifications on a day like this! It’s not all glamour you know!
But they love it!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 7th September 2019
We should enjoy a brighter and cheerier day even though that wind is likely to be from the north and will likely make a mess of the already small and weak surf.
Saying that, Booby’s could be fun for an hour or two for those in the know.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Northerly winds are going to take us into this weekend, calmer compared to midweek but still chilling the air and not doing not much for the surf conditions.
The most that we can hope for on Saturday are small and choppy little broken up waves at the more sheltered spots (sheltered from a northerly), those north facing breaks being pretty much flat as well as chopped out!
We should see a little respite on Sunday, the breeze lightening as it backs to the north east through Sunday morning, gradually easing back onshore through the afternoon.
But if you’re keen then you should find some really small but cleaner little surf first thing in the morning.
And that’s just about as much as we can expect as this pattern of onshore winds and mixed up weather continue to track our way across a mainly surfless ocean.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
