At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
There’s a wintery feel in the air down in the bays this morning with a cool westerly wind gusting in to topple the three to four feet of grey and chopped out surf.
The sky is gradually filling with blue but those big cloud bundles are still galloping across the horizon, some of them looking to empty a whole lot of wetness on top of us.
So it’s not really the place to aim for a lazy surf but as always, it is invigorating.
Give it a few hours and it should all be a little milder and more welcoming.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
Harlyn is quiet this morning with only a handful of earlybirds waxing up for a jump out into the foot or two of ruffled and dark looking little surf.
The wind is a little too westerly right now but is probably going to ease more to the south west as we go along, which will sharpen things up, especially as the tide pushes in through the morning.
So as the weather settles and the tide slowly rises, we could be enjoying some smaller but snappy and fun little waves for most of today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:09 (2.8m) High Tide: 13:14 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for All Hallows’ Eve, Sunday 31st October 2021
A fresher and gusting west sou’ westerly wind is going to be pushing more surf our way today, a lumpy six foot swell expected to be rolling along our coast along with the inevitable wetness that always accompanies those winds.
But the waves at Harlyn should be big enough to allow you to forget the damp wetsuit change in your rush to jump in and catch a few.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
As the school half-term holidaymakers gradually aim home that sou’ westerly wind is going to continue to bluster into the bays, chopping and slopping the gradually shrinking surf.
We should see some bright and cheery sunshine through Saturday which will at least put a shine on the choice between surfing lumpy and bumpy, three foot surf at our main breaks or smaller but sharper and snappier little waves at Harlyn and other sheltered spots.
The wind is likely to blow harder through Sunday but staying from the south west and so it should blow in some extra swell making Harlyn that little bit more exciting maybe.
So, al in all we should be enjoying a breezy but okay weekend with enough surf to keep everyone happy, especially if you get to the right place at the right time!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
