At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
Driving high-pressure rain squalls are washing down the bays this morning, a gusting sou’ westerly wind toppling and shoving the four to five feet or so of already lumpy surf. Those dark bundles of cloud are being tumbled along so we should see some bright bits soon enough.
Harlyn is going to be the local surf spot for most today!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
Skin tingling rain squalls are hosing their way across Harlyn this morning as a couple of feet of sharp and crunchy little waves spin their way across sand on the dropping tide.
Brighter skies are trying to make their way in but it might take just a little while till we can enjoy them.
In the meantime, that offshore wind shaped surf looks like fun!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:01 (1.6m) High Tide: 16:57 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 5th October 2021
North westerly winds are going to be blowing out the surf at all of our breaks today, which is a shame as a thick four to five foot swell is bundled into our bays and coves.
Still, looking at the charts today could turn out to be. Good day to rest up and fix all your equipment – the next few days look really very good!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A blustery start to the week might be a little off-putting with heavy showers being blown in on a blustery sou’ westerly wind. And that wind will back north westerly by Tuesday just to chop out an otherwise thick and lumpy, fun five foot swell.
But by midweek all should be different!
We are expecting a rolling four feet of long wavelength swell to sweep into our bays by Wednesday, the breeze light and offshore while the skies clear to allow some left over summer sunshine through.
And that’s just the start!
A thick and solid, building swell should roll our way throughout the back half of this week, a mid-teens wave period allowing those waves to be strong and tall, the south easterly breeze helping manicure some epic surf.
If all goes to plan, it should be just about as good as it gets at all of our surf breaks up and down the entire coastline this week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have the best week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
