At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The wind is blowing and the rain is falling at first light this morning, a gusting north north easterly blow pushing sheets of rain across the bay.
That touch-height cloud cover is a dull silver grey but there is a wide band of brighter stuff hugging the Atlantic horizon, maybe teasing us, maybe offering better to come.
Either way, right now the weather is about as hideous as can be.
So it’s just as well that the surf is keeping us interested!
A couple to three feet of peaking and pushing, grey but still fun looking waves are forcing their way onto the sandbars and reefs, the odd one curling and peeling, a few in-between just a bit fat and lazy but overall more than worth the effort.
Get on it as soon as you like though, that wind will be onshore by early afternoon!
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
The wind is howling onshore, the rain is driving into the bay, the surf is small and blown out and the air is cold.
But apart from that…. No, it just rubbish here today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:40 (1.6m) High Tide: 17:33 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 24th September 2018
How do you fancy a couple of feet of clean and glassy, peeling surf?
And some warm and sunny weather?
How about a light offshore breeze, just to keep those waves peeling that little bit longer?
Okay, you got it!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
These fronts and storms and that rain and wind are steadily galloping off to annoy the rest of the country as the weekend eases its way into the unmemorable, to be replaced by…., yes, some fine and dry and bright and sunny weather with small but pleasant surf!
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Light north easterly breezes are going to keep the air temperatures down through Monday but some bright and clear autumn sunshine should keep things cheerful as a couple of feet or so of peeling blue waves shimmy across our preferred surf breaks.
By Tuesday the breeze will have backed more to the south east, adding a degree or two to the air temperature as a foot or two fog clean and crisp, gliding surf peels across the sandbars.
And as high pressure squats down and makes itself comfortable, those breezes should continue to remain light and offshore while the sun continues to cheers us all up well into the end of the week.
I hope that you haven’t packed away the longboards and gliders yet, we’ll be enjoying those this week!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
