At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A light but steady southerly breeze is drifting across a grey and damp bay this morning, reflected in the couple of feet of smooth enough and tempting little grey waves that are tumbling ashore.
The swell is likely to build through the day while the breeze eventually backs to the south west and that usually points to a trip around to Harlyn for later!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s a damp view from the car park this morning, damp and breezy but mild and kind of cosy too.
A foot or so of smart and sharp cut little waves are snapping at the sand on the dropping tide, the southerly breeze blowing lightly offshore.
The swell is set to build through the day, doubling in size by this afternoon so this afternoon’s tide could just be fun!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:15 (1.5m) High Tide: 17:07 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 19th October 2021
South westerly winds are going to be blowing more grey and wet weather out way all day long!
But a thick and lumpy, rolling swell is going to be pushed into our bays and coves too!
We can expect a bumpy five to six feet of swell to be rolling along the coast, swinging a fun three to four fete of surf into those sheltered spots like Harlyn. And of course that wind is offshore at those more northerly facing surfbreaks too!
So it could just be sweet and fast and hollow all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A wet and windy week is waiting for us this week.
After last week’s calm and steady week producing small but sweet little surf, it looks like Autumn is reclaiming its ownership!
South westerly winds will blow fresh and hard into our bays and coves, pushing some big lumps of swell ahead of it as it strengthens into midweek.
That wind will be blowing much milder but very wet air our way, the skies filling with grey.
By week’s end though that wind will have switched to a more northerly direction, bringing colder and more irritating winds onto our shores. Northerly winds are onshore pretty much everywhere on this coastline and so the surf is likely to deteriorate quite quickly.
But the weekend is starting to look interesting with early signs of strong offshores maybe on offer.
So what does that all mean?
Well, ‘Harlyn or not in‘ for most of this week locally.
And it could just get very good during midweek.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
