At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s a bright enough and calm enough morning with clear blue skies above us but a wall of darkness out in the Atlantic!
That should move off the other way though courtesy of the light sou’ westerly breeze that is crumbling the three feet or so of otherwise fairly nicely lined up surf that is casually wandering into the bay. It is way more inviting than yesterday’s effort anyway.
The wind is forecast to strengthen though but as it does it should push more swell our way.
Harlyn later? Maybe this evening.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of not quite certain little wavse are wandering into the bay here this morning, that pre-high tide shuffle making some of the look better than they are while tripping others too early.
This afternoon’s tide might show something better but it will be a dance before darkness to time it right!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:54 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:47 (7.7m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 7th November 2017
Ah, just as a new swell starts rolling our way that wind swings to the north west, onshore, cold and of no use to anyone.
Four to six feet of broken and battered, wind tattered swell is likely to be fumbling and tumbling our way but without much shape or direction.
The south coast could be tempting if enough swell is getting around there?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The brighter and milder south westerly wind of Monday will be quickly replaced by a return to north westerlies by Tuesday, just as the swell builds up to a decent size.
Those bigger, five to six feet plus waves of Tuesday and Wednesday will be windblown and raggedy with only the slimmest of chances of something cleaner on Wednesday morning as the wind hits direct north.
And then as the wind eases and backs more westerly, the surf eases away too.
So, after Monday’s choice between clean but tiny surf at Harlyn versus bigger but choppier main breaks, our decision will be whether its worth the journey over to the far coast in search of cleaner conditions or settle for more onshore chop on this coast!
The weather should be mainly fine for most of the week though!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
