At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is blowing and the rain is lashing it down, the low visibility of an early autumn morning failing to promise much for the rest of the day.
But there is three to four feet of windswept but bowling, grey surf rolling into the bay against a gusting south south easterly, offshore wind.
It is all a bit cold and wet and wintery looking and that wind is blowing hard on those waves but they are big enough for the odd screaming drop in and there is that occasional peeler reeling across the bay!
The wind should ease off through midday and you never know, we might even enjoy some evening sunshine!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A foot or two of brisk and hurried surf is rearing up and plunging onto the sand here this morning, that strong south south easterly wind blowing those little waves almost inside out as they reel ashore.
I’m guessing that it will build a little on this afternoon’s tide while the wind should calm, making for a smaller and snappier option to the other side of the headland today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:42 (2.1m) High Tide: 16:39 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 4th September 2017
Westerly going south westerly winds will be messing up the fairly solid four feet plus of pushing swell at our main surf breaks today.
Starting out only fairly light, that wind is going to freshen through the afternoon as it slips more to the south.
So we might just see Harlyn coming into its own on the afternoon tide again, that wind being offshore here but (hopefully) not too strong!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A fairly solid, three to five feet of rolling swell should be brushing our coast as the schools go back this week, the wind blustering in mainly from the west.
Throw some unpredictable, more autumnal weather into the mix and we have the makings of a bit of an ‘end of summer’ feel to the whole week.
But the swells should keep rolling our way and the weather will clear up soon enough allowing us to enjoy some chunkier surf than we have seen for some time.
So it’s time to wax down your more dynamic boards and get ready for some paddle practice!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
