At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s a Sunday.
A proper, breezy, rain threatening but already brightening, heavy cloud laden, dull but promising, cosy kind of Sunday morning.
And the surf isn’t all that either, well not just yet.
Three feet or so of windwashed slop is bouncing into the bay with a gusty sou’ westerly wind pushing and pulling at it. But the forecasts are showing the wind to calm and slide more to the south.
So there’s no rush to surf here this morning, it should only get better as the day rolls on.
Yep, if you don’t have anything else planned you might as well roll over and snuggle up to a loved one while 6 bangs out some cool toons on this lazy Sunday morning!
And then go for a bumpy surf at HTC or on the dropping tide.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Conditions are ideal at Harlyn today, except for that lack of swell.
The breeze is lighter here and drifting offshore, smoothing and swing those tiny little waves as they whip crack ashore.
The set waves are enticing but really no taller than shin to knee high at best.
But with all that action way out in the Atlantic it should be worth keeping an eye on it all here. We could just get some extra swells rolling in ahead of that big swell that is predicted for next week (see the forecast for next week below on our site).
Anyway the waves are all smooth and clean and tempting at Harlyn this morning but tiny.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:48 (2.3m) High Tide: 10:28 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 17th September 2018
The wind is likely to have backed to the south today, maybe easing just a degree or two to the south east as the day goes on. And those few degrees of wind direction will make all the difference to the shape of the surf today.
We are probably going to see not much more than the same size as yesterday but, if that wind does play ball, it could just be very nice.
A couple of feet but clean and peeling maybe!
And the sun might just put in an appearance through the afternoon too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks like we might be in for a bit of a breezy week this week but we could just see.some big swells rolling our way too!
So Monday should start out lazily enough with that same windswept three foot swell bouncing our way. But with only a little luck that wind will back just to the south east to clean up and smooth out those swell lines.
By Tuesday we should see the start of a big swell.
Eight feet plus of wind driven, thick and crunchy, lengthening wave period swell should be pounding the beaches all along the coast. With the wind pushing hard from the South West, Harlyn will be the place locally. I think that we can expect some board snappingly hollow tubes out there today!
That swell is not going to hang around for too long though.
By Thursday we will see the wind hopefully slipping a little more offshore, helping those still big enough waves to loop and spin their way into Constantine and Booby’s.
Those few midweek days could just be really good if all of the elements miraculously combine, as always!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
