At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 feet.
An overcast, damp and breezy morning always goes down well to start the week!
Luckily, that same four foot or so swell from the weekend is still happily rolling shoreward while the wind is not that strong and has a little more southerly than westerly to it as well. So those four foot and bigger waves aren’t completely messed up, the odd set waves are turning themselves inside out when they explode over the shallows.
It looks like a bit of a paddle and some of them are dumping heavily but there are those other ones that are beckoning!
Or there’s always Harlyn…….
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet.
A foot or two of smooth faced and silken little walls of glassy water are tripping over themselves as they glide across the sand.
There is a long wait for those little set waves but when they do come through they are smooth and hollow and fun looking. The tide might help those waves gain some size too as it lazily rolls towards that mid afternoon high.
Yep, it could be fun on a longboard in the rain here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:52 (2.4m) High Tide: 14:54 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 27th September 2016
A three foot swell with a south westerly, going westerly gusting wind.
So the main breaks are likely to be sloppy while the sheltered spots might be smaller. But with just a little looking about we should find somewhere worth going in. It is going to be one of those right time at the right place days though!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore, south westerly, veering westerly winds are expected to blow us well into this week, not super strong or anything, just a steady onshore, pushing a rhythmic four feet or so of swell our way.
And so Harlyn is going to be the surf break of choice this week locally, the wind being mainly offshore there, while three feet or so of that swell should manage to make it around the headland for most of the time.
Yep, it’s looking like a fairly typical early autumn week of mainly windswept swells swinging into Harlyn to be smoothed out by that same wind that is making a mess of the rest of the surf breaks. And with those lovely, warm sea temperatures then it is looking good for a week of fun surf.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
