At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 feet
It’s one of those murk and mist and mizzle filled Sunday mornings, October quietly slipping in under a blanket of grey.
Four feet or so of onshore breeze slopped, mixed and bumped, grey and unbothered surf is casually rolling through the lo viz murk, a bit unsure as to where to break and not really bothering anyway. The south westerly breeze is light but strong enough to make it not worth the effort here this morning.
Not yet anyway.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of smooth glass walls are spinning onto the shallow beach, frustratingly small (especially after yesterday’s sand filled grinders) but beautifully shaped. When they’re not closing out!
Things could, or should improve with the tide later this morning and then there should be some bigger and heavier ones starting to explode our way through this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:14 (2.7m) High Tide: 15:16 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 2nd October 2017
Fresh westerly winds should be blowing in a roaring five to six foot swell today, that wind staying annoyingly onshore at most of our favourite surf breaks, sidling across the beach at the other places.
The far coast might just have enough swell to make the journey worth while or those one or two more easterly facing breaks further up (and down) the coast might just get enough swell swinging in to make a difference.
If you have the time and interest it could just be a rewarding day for a surfari!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds aren’t going to help the thick, rolling swell that is likely to wash our bays and coves at the start of this week.
Staring out from the west, the wind will soon settle to its recently preferred north westerly direction. And that is onshore at all of our local surfbreaks.
So those bigger swells that will start our week are going to lose their appeal at most of the breaks around here, making a little hunting expedition our best hope for finding something cleaner and sharper to surf.
Northerly winds are going to frustrate for a couple of days, the wind swinging southerly through midweek but only staying there for hours rather than days.
So a mixed up and chopped and slopped kind of week is waiting, with half decent waves being the reward for those with the time and desire to head out on the hunt for something better or the usual onshore mess for the rest!
So, booked those ‘winter away’ tickets yet?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
