At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A grey and overcast morning with chilly air temperatures is reminding us that Autumn is still in full flow this morning especially after yesterday’s beautiful afternoon.
But it is dry and still relatively mild, a light breeze drifting down from the north and west.
The surf is smaller than I was hoping for this morning, a foot or occasionally a couple of feet of sloppy and weak looking little crumblers are trickling in. The weak looking bit might be just an effect of the tide right now, it should improve as this small, neap tide gradually moves in to a late morning high.
Saying that we should see the effect of a new little swell this afternoon. Nothing really on its own but it should just push the existing swell up just a little.
In the meantime there are some ‘better than nothing’ little waves rolling our way and it would be a shame to waste them!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is flat and choppy around here this morning!
The north westerly breeze is enough to put some slop and chop onto the six inches or so of weak slop that is splashing onto the sand.
No, there’s not much over the headland today but it is better than here!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:10 (3.0m) High Tide: 11:32 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 29th October 2017
nother day of small and onshore waves awaits. The best that we can hope for is a foot or two of weak and sloppy little junk surf.
A perfect end for the groms’ half term school holidays, they can get out and practise some air drops on those crumbly little wave ramps!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A bright and breezy weekend is promising some fun surf conditions and enough fine weather to keep most of us happy enough!
Friday’s super clean conditions are likely to deteriorate only a little for Saturday as the wind switches onshore, gusting in from the west north west. So although it is likely to be bright and cheery all day long it might still have that north wind sting to it as well!
Morning and evening should produce the cleanest surf conditions but with a half decent three foot swell running our way all day long.
By Sunday that wind might be gusting a little harder as it settles more to the north. So we should be enjoying only a foot or two of ruffled and bumpy little surf breaking erratically at the more exposed surf breaks.
And then Monday should start the week with clean and sparkling little surf as the wind eases to a breeze and backs offshore again.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
