At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
A blustering sou’ westerly wind is dragging heavy blankets of dense rainfall across the horizon this morning, the cosy appeal of an early morning TV rugby drama competing for our attention against the idea of battling the elements.
But there’s no contest, the surf is rubbish, big lumps of grey waves dumping themselves in the bay to be tossed and turned by that growling wind.
Thank goodness for Harlyn!…..
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 4 feet
The wind is straight offshore here this morning, turning those snappy little close-out waves into short blasting cavernous little barrels. The set waves are a long way apart on the dropping tide but when they march through they’re big enough to give you a kicking!
Timing is going to be crucial, the wind is likely to swing onshore by noon while low tide will drain a lot of the swell just an hour before. So that last period of the tidal push, just before the wind shift should carry a few gems!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:58 (1.1m) High Tide: 16:52 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 27th October 2019
A chilly north north easterly wind is likely to settle the swell at our main surf breaks this morning, some bright and clear and welcome bright sunshine lighting up three feet of offshore shaped, peeling surf.
The size is likely to drop slowly through the day but there should be fun surf all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We can look forward to a weekend of two halves this weekend with gusting south westerly winds howling through on Saturday morning, pushing a whole lot of broken and chopped out swell our way but cleaning things up at Harlyn.
We can expect big and hollow, sand blasting barrels all morning long at Harlyn, that wind bringing a lot of dampness but milder temperatures too. The wind will be onshore even at Harlyn by the afternoon with a chillier and just as wet north westerly blow filling in.
As the clocks fall back an hour overnight, Sunday should show a completely different day.
A bright but chilly Autumn day with a steady north nor’ easterly breeze just keeping some shape to the slowly dropping swell. If we are only a little lucky we should be enjoying a hollow enough four feet or so of surf at our preferred surf spots in that crisp autumn sunshine all day long!
A prelude to a week of small but offshore sculpted surf in more autumn sunshine all week long!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
