At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 feet
A Southerly breeze is gusting through the dull grey of a damp and overcast autumn one this morning, blowing the tops of the three to four feet of pushing swell that is bouncing in ahead of high water.
There are a few waves to ride but it’s not in any way great and a lot of water is moving around for the size of swell, so some of our school half-term visitors are likely to get caught up in those rips if they’re not aware.
So it’s a good job that the lifeguards are on duty this week. If in doubt, give ’em a shout – they are quite approachable really.
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
There’s a long wait for the two to three foot sets of offshore breeze blown waves at an almost deserted Harlyn this morning, the approaching high tide absorbing a lot of energy from those swells.
It is all a little dull and dark and wintery looking but the water is (relatively) warm, those waves are going to sharpen up as the tide drops and the sun will (eventually) break through.
And you can always drop in to our little store while you’re waiting and have a gander at all of our own logo Tees and Sweats that have finally arrived (and we have a range of winter wetsuits in at last as well as loads of mid length boards and mini-mals!).
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:24 (1.6m) High Tide: 20:19 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 25th October 2021
Westerly winds are going to be veering south westerly and back again today while a thick and lumpy six foot plus swell roars into our bays.
Harlyn is going to be one of the better places to look for a surf today, those swells will have no trouble swinging in and onto that hardened sand to test your reflexes and board strength.
We should even enjoy some brighter skies later on too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gusting sou’ westerly winds are going to be blustering across our coastline throughout this week’s school half-term break, pushing plenty of big and rolling swells our way.
Harlyn is going to be the surf destination of choice locally, those winds blowing offshore to hollow and sculpt plenty of big enough and cavernous waves.
Those tides are going to play an important part in getting the best out of it all this week although they will be gradually shrinking back as we go along, making it all a little less critical.
Even so, if you do like your waves with a bit of added extra oomph in them then you might want to aim for a lower tide time.
Otherwise we should be enjoying enough brightness and mild enough temperatures to keep everyone happily occupied with mainly outdoor adventures this week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
