At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
A westerly wind is pushing into the bay this morning as that grey sky cover clings on for a while longer yet!
And so the surf is lumpy and sloppy, four feet and bigger of wind tossed and aimless, chattering surf crumbling into the desolate bay. It’s not the most inviting stuff but, as always, there are those interesting sections on the inside that suddenly warp up and spin through.
The beach is empty, a return to quieter times and the water is warm enough too and so it could just be worth a wet if you’re keen enough but I think that I’ll have little wander over to Harlyn and see what’s up over there.
Harlyn (2*): 3 feet.
The westerly wind is blowing hard across the beach, messing and chopping the three feet or so of ridged and bumped, grey looking waves.
There is more than a hint of autumn in the air this morning but that just makes it a little more appealing. The size might yet increase but it might be this evening before the wind is kinder.
It could be a very quiet but fun session this evening!

Surf Forecast for Monday 5th September 2016
The wind is likely to ease back to the south west as the swell eases away too.
But there should still be a half decent three to four feet of swell rolling along the coast, producing a decent couple of feet of clean surf over at Harlyn.
the weather should be just about okay too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As the schools reopen and the summer holidays come to an end, this week seems keen to show us what this summer could have been like!
After a slow start to the week with westerly wind continuing to push through lumps of windswell, the wind is likely to ease up and gradually switch offshore. With just a tiny piece of luck this should perfectly coincide with the arrival of some strong groundswells running our way from those tropical storms that have been filling themselves out over on the other side of the Atlantic.
And so we should be basking in the luxurious warmth of a late season high pressure system just as one of the few proper swells of this year arrives!
Three to four to five feet of offshore smoothed and sunshine brightened surf should be on offer all along the cast, all through the week!
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
