At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The quiet early morning air is still and chilled down in the bays this morning, the dawn light showing pink and blue, a thick bank of sea mist lurking just offshore.
And a foot or maybe two of smooth as glass little swell is gliding onto the sandbars and rocky outcrops in that early morning light.
Another fine day lies ahead!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Tiny ripples are sliding through the otherwise silver smooth glass of Harlyn Bay this morning, the bay almost deserted beneath the pinks and blues of another beautiful morning.
There is a cloud bank out there but if it does drift in with the tide, it shouldn’t linger too long.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:34 (2.3m) High Tide: 15:29 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 17th October 2021
That same small swell that has been entertaining us all week should continue to smoothly roll onto our scattered surf breaks, a light southerly breeze just ruffling the otherwise glass smooth peaks and walls.
The fine weather might gradually change as we go along but we should just luck into one more day of this late, late summer!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A weekend of change awaits as that pleasant but surf-depriving high pressure system fills out and drifts away to be replaced by a series of lumpy old low pressure systems.
We should hang on to those pleasant and settled conditions through Saturday with the breeze coming from the south or south east but freshening and gusting as we go into Sunday.
And Sunday should see an increase in swell size too. Only gradually but there should be a steady increase in size.
We are unlikely to be enjoying those smooth and even swells of last week but a closer together, lumpier and bigger swell should start to show itself through the afternoon, gradually getting bigger as we go into the new week.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
