At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 2 to 3 feet
The north westerly wind is keeping temperatures low again this morning as another sunburst dawn throws golden rays over the far horizon.
It all looks bright and fresh and sharp but the surf is being completely slopped and chopped by that chilly, chilly wind, except for in the corner where there are few little ones curving their way in under the shelter of the headland.
If you go looking you should find something worth your while but you’re going to have to time it just right!
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
Good to see the early morning swim crew warming up on a pick-up truck breakfast in that chilling nor’ wester. The water might just be warm enough but that wind is a biter!
A golden dawn is bursting over clearing skies making for a fabulous beach panorama but the small and weak surf is pretty much just a mess of one to two foot junk surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:38 (2.9m) High Tide: 12:39 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 12th October 2020
That northerly wind will soon be back to chill the air and chop the surf again today, with nothing more than a couple of feet of trashed and messed little surf expected all day long.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a slow start we might just end up enjoying quite a pleasant week of small but clean surf.
To start the week though those north westerly winds are going to continue to chill the air temperature and chop any small and weak little swells with early Monday maybe showing something a little cleaner, just an hour or two of south and south westerly winds teasing us at Harlyn.
So it’s likely to be midweek before we wake up to something more pleasant with north easterly breezes sharpening a couple of feet of smoother and more even surf. That wind should calm as it eases its way to a much more pleasant and enjoyable south easterly direction, straight offshore at all of our favourite surf breaks.
Throw in some very pleasant Autumn sunshine and we have the makings of a return to some fun and lazy days of gliding and sliding across small but smooth swells while the sea still carries some leftover summer warmth.
And that could last for a few days too!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
