Surf Report for Saturday 24th October 2015

At 7.45 a.m:

Constantine (2*):  4 feet

A grey and murky morning is there to greet us this morning, a steady, light rain pitter-pattering down in the greyness of a still autumn day.
The surf has dropped a bit but there’’s still a chunky four feet or more of lightly wind ruffled waves pushing ashore. There’s an hour or two till low water yet, so the swell is likely to strengthen again with the tide.
Right now the breeze is superlight and from the south (almost offshore) but it is likely to swing more northerly by lunchtime, so I’d get on it sooner rather than later, although there will be places breaking much better than here today!
The weather should brighten up this afternoon too!

Harlyn (3*):  3 feet

Smooth and glassy waves are snapping into the bay this morning, a couple to three feet of hard breaking and hollow surf grinding onto the shallow sand.
It is doing that low tide Harlyn slap down thing right now but once the tide turns in an hour or two then it should strengthen and build a little more.
The wind is forecast to slip onshore around lunchtime, so it might be worth getting on it earlier rather than later!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 25th October 2015

Oh, things are suddenly starting to look interesting for today!
That same three to four foot swell is going to continue pushing in while the wind looks like it might now be veering south easterly (offshore).
Throw in a little bit of autumn brightness and everything is looking fine and dandy for a wonderful Sunday of surfing!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

It looks as though we could be in for a wave drenched weekend!
Saturday looks to be a typical Harlyn Saturday, three feet plus and offshore through the morning drizzle and murk, the wind slipping more onshore through lunchtime.
And Sunday is looking super promising with the possibility of south easterly (offshore) winds while that swell continues to steadily push onto our favoured surf breaks.
And then next week is looking promising too! SJ (the original online surf forecaster) is getting excited, leaving this comment on yesterday’s surf report; ‘That’s the lemon next to the pie. This Tuesday 27th October 2015 is shaping up to be even bigger (with strong Southerly winds). Low tide will be around 10:50 (spring tides) on that day’.
So it’s all looking good!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
