At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 feet.
It’s a drizzly, mizzly, murky old morning, that leaden sky ready to dump more gallons at any time and yet, the breeze is light and the air temperature is mild enough and so it all feels very cosy and snuggly.
And that is probably helping all the young guns to feel a little more secure as they head off on their adventures at new schools and colleges and jobs! Good luck to all of you and don’t worry, you’re not missing much back at the beach.
Three to four feet of thick and mushy surf is plodding ono the sand and rocks, crumbling and rolling over the shallower bits, fattening and slowing in the deeper water.
Saying that, the Point is looking more promising than I’ve seen it for a long while.
That could just end up being fun on this afternoon’s tide.
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
A couple of feet of hollowness is thundering onto the hard sand of low tide Harlyn this morning, most of those little waves closing out across a hundred yards of shallowness but with the odd right-hander spinning its way from the Rock.
And that’s the way of it with Harlyn, you do get those grinding reelers occasionally but you also have to suffer at least a few smash-ups from those wrong choice close-outs too!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 5th September 2017
Onshore winds are going to mess up the four to five feet of fairly thick swell that will be rolling our way.
It could end up being quite a frustrating day while you explore other breaks only to go in where the search started.
I’m reckoning on an early one at Harlyn (three to four feet and offshore?), followed by a mini-surfari down the coast in search of a favourable wave that breaks in a north westerly wind.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A fairly solid, three to five feet of rolling swell should be brushing our coast as the schools go back this week, the wind blustering in mainly from the west.
Throw some unpredictable, more autumnal weather into the mix and we have the makings of a bit of an ‘end of summer’ feel to the whole week.
But the swells should keep rolling our way and the weather will clear up soon enough allowing us to enjoy some chunkier surf than we have seen for some time.
So it’s time to wax down your more dynamic boards and get ready for some paddle practice!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
