At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 2 to 3 feet
A cold wind is rustling across the headland this morning bending the marram and swaying the hedgerows, that brought forward hour of light not helping the brightness at all.
Right now a couple to three feet of windblown and choppy little surf is stumbling our way with all the enthusiasm of a post Masked Ball reveller.
There are narrow ribbons of brightness scarring the otherwise uniform grey sky though, maybe promising brighter for later? And some of the forecasts are showing the wind to slip just those few degrees past north to north east – offshore.
So there is a ‘maybe’ about conditions improving later but I still think that a couple to three feet of windslopped junk surf is as much as we can really expect here today.
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
A foot or so of wind chopped little waves are stumbling and tumbling ashore at Harlyn this morning, the weak looking little wash in need of some sort of focus.
And some bright weather would be nice too.
Ah well. The other side might be worth a dip later though!?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:44 (2.9m) High Tide: 11:59 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 30th October 2017
Some late season sunshine is likely to greet us today, along with a light offshore, south easterly breeze. Ah, if only we could look forward to some solid swells too but that’s not to be. We’ll be lucky to find much more than a foot or so of super clean and attractive little waves to glide across.
But that should be fun on a late Autumn afternoon!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As a weak high-pressure system nudges over us we might just enjoy a calm and pleasant start to this week.
Offshore breezes and some sharp and clear sunshine are going to be just a little bit wasted on the only small surf through Monday, barely a foot or so of immaculately peeling little surf teasing its way into the week.
The wind is likely to switch more to the south for Tuesday, helping to push just a little more swell our way but also making for more crumbly and slightly sloppier conditions.
And then we are likely to be enjoying light offshores through the back half of the week, the weather being a little dull maybe but with those small waves offering some gliding heaven to the longboard sliders and small wave dancers who have the time!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
