Constantine (0*): 3 feet
The wind is blowing fresh into the bay again this morning, a little more westerly than it has been with a touch of south westerly maybe but either way, it is still onshore, still chopped up and still junk surf!
Three feetish of choppy and sloppy, lumpy and bumpy, raggedy surf is being rushed into the bay by that gusting wind.
The weather is a bit hit and miss too! There are the odd gaps of blue-grey in amongst the otherwise uniform grey of an early autumn morning, those short burst showers pretty intense.
Yep, it’s one of those Sunday mornings when you might want to stay snuggled up with a cosy one and leave a lazy brunch till later!
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
A couple of feet or so of deep blue chop and slop is being bullied onto the sand by that harsh wind.
It is all a little chilly and windy and rain-threatening but still offers that magic of a wild beach in the early morning.
And the wind might just slip a few degrees to the south soon enough and that is all it will take to make it worth getting wet for.
But give it a couple of hours before the wind changes, there are better things to do than hang around in the cold waiting for the wind to change!

Surf Forecast for Monday 11th September 2017
The wind looks like it will continue to blow hard and loud, driving thick and lumpy waves onto our craggy coastline, some of those waves getting into the biggish range, five to maybe six feet with those rogue sets blasting through on top.
But that windblown surf is going to be out of control, a wild ‘Victory at Sea’ kind of day, great for the seascape artists and photos but not much cop for a surfer.
Luckily the south coast is just over there and conditions should be way cleaner down there than here.
If the surf is big enough!?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another blustery week of onshore winds and chopped out, windtorn surf is blowing our way!
The winds are set to blow hard and onshore for pretty much most of this coming week, mainly screaming in from the west nor’ west and so messing up all of the surf breaks locally.
We should see some bigger swells bouncing into the bays but they are likely to be no more than a mess of chop for most of the time.
This week does have the makings of a South Coast week, if those waves are big enough to swing their way that way!
We can only hope that the wind gods become kinder to us as the remnants of those nasty hurricanes sling some swell our way for the rolling week maybe.
In the meantime, have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
