At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 5 feet
A blissful morning is spreading its brightness along the coastline this sharp and autumn chilled morning, the rifle shot crashing of breaking waves disturbing the otherwise silent sunrise.
The breeze is light and so close to being offshore but just hanging to the side for the moment while early morning cloud bundles slowly drift away to reveal a bright and cheery one.
The surf is booming, three to four to five feet of quite setty but close together waves exploding onto the reef with that crash and bang in the still morning air.
If, if, if. If that wind was barely a degree more to the east then conditions would be exceptional, as it is, there are probably better places to surf than here until the wind does back more offshore!
It is still good though!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet.
Gorgeous little two foot waves are spilling ashore in the stillness here this morning, bigger sets sending shimmering glass walls of blue reeling across the sand.
It is all a little inconsistent with quite a wait between sets but the breeze is light and offshore, the sea is deep blue and the sky is bright and cheery.
It is a definite option to the more serious stuff of the other side, especially if you’re just looking to cruise on a sunny Sunday morning!

Surf Forecast for Monday 12th September 2016
Four feet and maybe offshore. Or probably sideshore again. Well, probably until later and then it could go offshore. For a bit.
Whichever direction it eventually chooses, at least that wind is from the south, gusting quite freshly today.
And there should still be a decent four feet or so of eleven second wave-period swell.
A hundred surf spots should be beckoning today, some all smooth and nicely groomed, spinning off some smaller but immaculate little waves while other spots will be a little more gnarly, slightly windswept, a bit rough.
And isn’t it nice to have a choice on a reasonably bright and sunshiny kind of day!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A solid little four foot swell should be kicking this week off in some style, the wind maybe frustrating us a little locally on Monday by refusing to twitch that extra degree or two that would make all the difference. Well, until later that is.
By evening we should be enjoying some smooth and thick, peeling waves at all of our preferred surf spots!
And then the wind should settle and ease as the week goes on with light offshores grooming those rhythmically pulsing swell lines all the way through.
Those September Sessions are here at last!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
