At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 – 4 feet.
More wind and drizzle and greyness and mist and mugginess will be accompanying the kids as they stumble enthusiastically back to school today, a warm Autumn day to start the Autumn term.
And so the surf isn’t all that great either with three to four feet of bumpy and broken swell lines washing ashore haphazardly. Those whitewater tears are streaking the otherwise grey and tired, mizzle soaked view.
But don’t despair, things should brighten up by this afternoon, maybe later on this afternoon but it will brighten.
And that could just be the start of something special!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet.
Pretty looking waves are bouncing up on that pre-high tide bank, a couple of feet of smooth and clean walls, peaking and folding as they sang ashore.
I’m guessing that it might drop in size a little with the tide but this wind seems set south westerly for the day and so this will be the cleanest break locally.
Yep, it should be fun all day, losing some size with the dropping tide but regaining that on the tidal push.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:45 (1.3m) High Tide: 08:26 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 6th September 2016
It could be good today!
A three to four foot proper little groundswell is likely to be pushing in all day long, being groomed nicely by very light southerly going south easterly breezes.
Three to four feet, sunny and offshore by the evening?!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As the schools reopen and the summer holidays come to an end, this week seems keen to show us what this summer could have been like!
After a slow start to the week with westerly wind continuing to push through lumps of mixed up windswell through Monday, the wind is likely to ease up and gradually switch offshore!
With just a tiny piece of luck this should perfectly coincide with the arrival of some strong groundswells running our way from those tropical storms that have been filling themselves out over on the other side of the Atlantic.
And so we should be basking in the luxurious warmth of a late season high pressure system just as one of the few proper swells of this year arrives!
Three to four to five feet of offshore smoothed and sunshine brightened surf should be on offer all along the cast, all through the week!
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
