At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 5 feet
It’s a chilly one this grey and autumnal morning, a bland band of greyness surrounding the bay, a steady wind blowing almost offshore.
Almost but, well, not quite.
That wind must be almost direct southerly, blowing into some crunchy looking right-handers as they explode into the bay.
It is almost really good but not quite!
I’m guessing that somewhere more friendly to a southerly (Fistral?) might be cooking right now but here is still just a little big for itself, a little too rippy and a little too disorganised to be fun.
Somewhere not too far away will be really good again today though!
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
It is looking pretty good here again today with a less consistent swell getting in but those set waves still getting into the three to four foot range.
The wind continues to blow straight offshore here this morning and forecast are indicating that the first named storm, Abigail, is going to bring some more powerful winds through tonight.
But in the meantime Harlyn is looking fun with a bit of a wait between sets but great when they arrive!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:51 (1.3m) High Tide: 17:42 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 12th November 2015
A howling westerly wind is going to blow today and that, combined with some expected big swells should make for some great sea views!
Shelter is going to be the name of the game if you want to go surfing, those super sheltered spots are going to be the go, those tucked away, odd facing breaks. They’re the ones to look for today!
Yep, we are likely to be seeing some big old storm surf at most of our regular surf breaks including Harlyn today, so take it easy if you do get in wherever you decide to go (Wales anyone?).
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
Strong onshore winds have been dominating this week and look set to carry on through the weekend too!
Those winds are likely to veer more westerly for a day or so on Friday before slipping back to the south west for the rest of the weekend.
And those winds are going to be blowing hard all weekend long again though, pushing more thick and heavy wintery swells our way all the time.
Locally, Harlyn is likely to be our venue of choice throughout the weekend and we can expect it to be getting into the big range for most of the time, even here.
So, more sand-drenching stand up close-outs interspersed with a few screaming peelers awaits!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
