At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The sun is gradually lightening and brightening the bays this morning, a brisk southerly breeze adding just a light chill to the early morning freshness.
And there’s surf!
Three feet and bigger of bumpy swell lines are swooping into the bay, the breeze just a degree or two short of being offshore but almost there. And that swell has the look of a building swell, with that deep blue of long travelled waves from far away storms.
It could just get very good today!
Well, maybe give the tide an hour or two to drop back.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of pristine little waves are ricocheting across the high tide shorebreak here this morning, the sun throwing its beams down the valley and lighting up those shiny little wave faces.
It is real small right now but that will gradually change through this afternoon and into tomorrow, offering another option to the breaks over the other side of the headland.
Or if you just prefer Harlyn!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:24 (1.1m) High Tide: 20:18 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 24th September 2017
We are expecting very calm breezes today, allowing for glassy conditions.
And we are expecting long travelled swells to beat their rhythmic path to our breaks too.
And I am expecting some pleasant sunshine as well!
Six to eight feet of glassy, grinding, stand-up barrels?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This could well be a weekend of two halves and the second half might just end up clawing its way into the ‘epic’ scale of surflore!
A steady three to four foot swell is likely to be rolling smoothly our way through Saturday, a decent wave interval allowing time to paddle out while clearer skies add to the enjoyment. The southerly wind is likely to ease as the day stretches out, gradually drifting offshore through the afternoon…. just as the leftover swells from all that hurricane activity over the other side of the pond starts to reach us!
And Sunday is likely to dawn with six to eight feet of grinding swell reeling onto all of our points and reefs and sandbars all along the coast!
Forget the weather, the breeze is set to be offshore, the swell should pump and today just should end up being a day amongst days!
Take it easy out there, conditions could just get real!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
