At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 feet
Well Autumn seems to have made itself at home quite early and quite quickly this year.
The wind is galloping in again from the north west keeping temperatures down but bringing loads of fresh and clear air but while wrecking the surf.
Four to five feet of tattered and torn, broken up surf is being flung ashore by that wind. There’s no shape to it at all as those junky and windtorn peaks just collapse as soon as they hit the shallows.
It might just be worth a trip over to the far coast to see if it’s big enough because this coast will be blown raggedy all the way along!
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple of feet of windblown and raggedy, junk surf is tumbling over itself to the beach here this morning.
The wind is screeching into the bay from the north west, chilly and annoying but bringing fresh and clear air, blowing those short, sharp showers away as quickly as they arrive.
No, there’s no surf here today, well, there’s plenty of surf but just none that’s worth riding!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:29 (0.9m) High Tide: 08:04 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 10th September 2017
The biggest difference today is that the wind is likely to back to the south west through most of the middle of the day.
And that is offshore at Harlyn!
But the wave height is likely to be less than it has been, meaning that we are probably in for a couple of feet of offshore hollowed little close-outs for most of the time. But that should be fun after all these onshore waves recently!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A very weathery weekend is waiting for us this weekend with lots of onshore wind, plenty of weak but occasionally sizeable windswell and even just a little sunshine too!
Saturday looks like a write-off for surf with a fresh north westerly wind blowing out the four to five feet of weak and wishy washy swell.
Sunday’s swells will be smaller, more in the three to maybe four feet region, while that fresh wind will be blowing more westerly than northerly, still onshore everywhere but maybe not as onshore as Saturday’s winds.
And then next week will start out in the same vein with hard blowing and onshore winds, very mixed, autumnal weather along with some big windswells.
The south Coast will probably be beckoning this weekend and probably well into next week too!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
