At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 5 to 6 feet
The grey sky is stretching from horizon to horizon, that sou’ westerly breeze just enough to be bothersome and with the threat of a downpour lurking.
It is a bit of a sullen one this morning, matching my manflu mood.
Some chunky waves are lumbering into the bay though, five or six feet of thick and sloppy surf hesitating before rolling over itself in a hurry to hit dry sand.
The wind is just too strong and just too onshore to allow it to be ‘good’ but give it an hour or two and there should be some lumping peaks to make the paddle worthwhile, if you’re keen enough.
Or we could just wander round to Harlyn……..
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The breeze is offshore here this morning as expected and so some smooth faced and hard breaking waves are thumping ashore.
Four feet of hollow and fast breaking (or maybe closing-out?) waves are smacking the sand off the Rock, a mellower peak further down the beach.
The front row of the car park is pretty full already but the first shift might not have got the best of it. I’d give it an hour or two before sliding out there and then we should expect some hard and hollow, tubing board-wreckers!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 07:52 (3.1m) High Tide: 14:04 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 1st October 2017
Hard blowing sou’ westerly winds will continue to push some still thick, four foot plus swells our way all day long.
The wind is likely to ease up through midday but it is also likely to back more westerly, making for bumpier conditions at Harlyn, especially after the hard blowing offshore smoothed wave faces we have been enjoying on Saturday and Sunday morning.
But it should continue to be very okay!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
How much do you love Harlyn?
I think that you might just be about to find out!
With big and thick and lumpy swells heading our way this weekend, all being happily blown along by blustery and gusting sou’ westerly winds, we are looking at a proper Autumn Harlyn weekend!
Board snappingly hollow, sand grindingly thick, superfast shutdowns can be expected all weekend long!
The late morning brightness of Saturday will soon be replaced by heavy showers and greyness by Sunday, the south westerly blow blasting out the backing track for those munchy crunchy waves!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
