At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Well the wind has eased at least, leaving the pitter patter of lightly falling rain to add some pleasant atmosphere to this grey skied but peaceful Saturday morning.
The breeze is light, drifting in from the west nor’ west, still keeping that early morning chill to it. And it is just strong enough to push the three feet and just a bit bigger of surf over a little too early while adding a little slop to it all too.
All of the forecasts are showing the breeze to ease its way offshore through the morning and so we can expect conditions to improve massively over the next few hours, that breeze starting to smooth and hollow those fun sized waves.
It might just get good!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A foot or just about two of weakish looking little waves are tripping over themselves as they stumble ashore at Harlyn this morning, the dropping tide having an effect on those waves.
Again it might clean up as the breeze backs to the south east and then more direct east during the morning.
But then again the other side should be improving all the time too and it is obviously bigger over there!
At least we should have a choice of places to surf today.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 23rd September 2018
There’s an amber warning out there for strong winds today but I’m not sure why (watch out!).
If we are only slightly lucky we could be enjoying strong north easterlies blowing offshore at our main surf breaks through the morning, cleaning and hollowing a smaller three feet or so of lumpy little swell.
By the afternoon I reckon that the wind will have settled to a more blustery northerly still giving a chance of some decent surf at Booby’s.
Or we could just enjoy the forecast tempest or hurricane or whatever the Met office have decided for the weekend. We do seem to have had quite a few weather warning these last few months, usually on weekends and usually entirely inaccurate.
Can’t imagine why.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed up weekend is waiting for us this weekend, those hard blowing winds relaxing just for a moment before coming back hard.
Following Friday’s westerly winds, Saturday should be much calmer with the chance of the breeze backing offshore by mid morning. If all goes to plan we should be enjoying three to four feet of clean surf back at our main surf breaks, getting quite glassy for a while before the wind strengthens into the evening.
It could just get very good though through midday and into the afternoon though.
Make the most of Saturday, the wind will be northerly by Sunday, maybe with an hour or two of south westerlies at first light to allow Harlyn to hollow out a few four footers but very quickly the wind will be onshore all along the coast.
Next week is starting to look pleasant but that is too far off to predict.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
