At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (????*): 10 to 12 feet
The wind has eased this morning, the sky is clearing, the ground is drying out and the surf is roaring!
Big, big waves are barging their way ashore, ten to twelve feet of majestic force are exploding onto those low tide banks in the bay, the Slab at Booby’s holding some big barrels while the headland is turning itself into a mighty point break.
It is pretty much as big as it gets in this country while still holding some shape. And with the forecasts continuing to predict light offshores for most of today, those of you who are fit enough, game enough and experienced enough might just want to explore those better big waves spots that are dotted along the coast.
The rest of us might want to scurry off looking for some shelter at those less surfed ‘mysto‘ spots that only break when it is huge!
Tide and timing are going to play a significant part in improving your surf experience today!
Harlyn (4*): 6 to 8 feet
Thick and heavy, low tide barrels are slamming onto the sand at low tide Harlyn, six to eight feet and bigger of solid and juicy, sand drenched, shutdown tubes, spitting across the beach.
It’s big, it’s mean and it’s heavy and there’s a lot of it.
The tide might ease the pain as it rises but that swell is still building!
It all has the makings of an epic Harlyn Sunday!
But there will also be less intimidating and more user friendly breaks all along the coast today with those rivermouths, points, coves and sheltered bays all coming alive.
Take it easy to there though it is big and it is heavy!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:52 (1.8m) High Tide: 14:49 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Bonfire Night, Monday 5th November 2018
Light offshore breezes are going to be grooming the four to six foot swell into perfect peaks and walls all day long today.
The sun might be a little slow to put in an appearance but it will eventually brighten up an already awesome day of surfing!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After an awesome start to the week we will be seeing quite a breezy and sometimes more stormy time of it.
Monday should be one of those days with light offshores helping shape the four to six feet of immaculately smooth swell into something even more beautiful by the time those waves hit the surf breaks.
The wind is likely to pick up again through Tuesday a brisk southerly shaping some pretty but smaller waves at Harlyn while chopping out our favourite breaks.
That wind will blow harder through midweek while backing more westerly, helping to push in some more big to really big swell. But there are only going to be a limited number of breaks that will hold that swell in that wind.
We might be putting in some miles to get the best out of this swell.
And that’s the story of the rest of the week and right through the weekend; gusting onshore are going to be pushing thick and lumpy swells our way, getting really big for a day or two and then dropping to big enough to still seek out those sheltered spots.
Harlyn is likely to be our friend this week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
