At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
Today’s surfcheck was brought to you from the midst of an absolute tempest this morning, all the lanes guiding floodwater towards the sea, the run off re-shaping and re-sculpting bays and beaches all along the coast.
And the surf is fairly ho-hum at best.
Three to four feet or so of wind crumbled slop can be glimpsed through the murk and lo-vis of those heavy downpours, the north westerly wind, lighter than forecast, is making the air feel definitely cold. And it’s going to strengthen in minute as well!
It is brightening up just over there but not before those torrents of rain have been unleashed and those black bundles of dense and water laden clouds have fully emptied!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A small foot or two of crumbly little surf is easing its way onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, the stream in full flow as the tide drops towards low.
It’s not great here this morning, those torrents of rain sweeping across the bay, blown by a strengthening nor’ westerly blow.
But there is some brightness out on the horizon promising a bit better for later!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:39 (2.0m) High Tide: 15:31 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 10th November 2019
You won’t have to rush this morning.
Those cold and wet, onshore conditions of Saturday are going to take us well into mid morning today, but then things should start to change. And quite quickly too!
The sun should put in an appearance in the morning lighting up a gradual wind change from onshore (boo, hiss!) to offshore (yay!), starting off north easterly and then gradually calming as it eases back to a very pleasant south easterly breeze.
With a four to six foot long range mid-teens wavelength swell lining up into the bays things could get really very, very good!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Cold and onshore winds are going to continue to plague us as we go into this weekend, the brisk northerly blow of Friday gradually easing more north easterly as it calms through the evening. But I think that it will be too dark to enjoy the benefits of those cleaner surf conditions.
We will be enjoying a regular south westerly wind through Saturday morning, a building swell just waking Harlyn up and throwing a few little hollow ones at us.
Make the most of that though, those north westerlies will have returned by mid-afternoon to chop out the building surf.
And that’s it for Sunday, a blowy north westerly wind will chop and slop the six foot swell at all of our surfbreaks on this coast, making the trip down south an appealing idea?
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
