At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Four to five to six feet of lumping and bumping, thumping swell is rolling into the bays this morning, the breeze still almost offshore but not quiet able to smooth those thick swells.
It’s nice to see some energy in the swell at last – it has been a while since we have had any ‘testing’ surf along theses shores but, as always, the wind is set to make bit of a mess of it all soon enough.
Right now though, there are some meaty drop-ins with some long walls to swing across, with the occasional hollow section to tuck into. But you might want to get on it quick, that wind is going to strengthen soon enough!
Or you could take a drive down the coast and pull into some smoother shaped chunks!?
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The breeze is drifting straight offshore at Harlyn this morning, smoothing and hollowing the two to three feet of swell that is hanging to swing around the headland and into the bay.
There is a bit of a wait in between sets but they look fun when they do swing in!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:06 (2.8m) High Tide: 12:21 (5.7m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th September 2019
South westerly winds are going to push and shove a building swell into our bays and coves and onto our reefs and sandbars.
By evening we should be seeing some big surf pounding into the bays but with those onshore winds making a mess of it all.
Except for Harlyn.
It should be offshore at Harlyn.
And big enough too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Thick and heavy, rolling autumn swells will be entertaining us all week long, our first taste of winter’s weight to shove and push us all towards those more sheltered surfbreaks.
By midweek those swells should be getting into the large and extra large size range, barging into our surf breaks and battering our headlands and coves.
It could be one of those weeks to go exploring for mysto spots in search of those little heard of breaks, the stuff of myth and legends, the places that only break now and again, up estuaries and around corners.
But take it easy out there, it should be big and it should be testing!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
