Constantine (3*): 4 to 6 feet
at 7.10 a.m.
The wind is blowing again this morning, a brisk offshore right now, gusting into those tall faces of four to five to six foot waves, the driving rain pitting those otherwise smooth wave faces.
The surf is pumping in, a little fat here and there because of that wind but hollow in other places because of that same wind. It’s a couple of hours off high tide yet but the bay looks quite full already – there is a lot of water swirling around!
That is a bit frustrating because the wind is likely to swing more to the south west soon enough and junk things out, probably just about the time that the tide drops back enough to allow some sharpness and shallowness.
In the meantime though there are some wedge peaks throwing themselves around if you pick the right place!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
There are some exquisite looking little waves rolling in here this morning!
As the tide starts to get just a little too high, the set waves (and you do have to wait for them!) are peaking off the Rock before spinning down the line, snapping across the shallows.
It’s good couple of feet with three to maybe four foot sets every few minutes. It’s a bit of a wait for those sets but they are there, if you have the patience!
As the wind slides more westerly, onshore at those breaks on the other side of the headland, it should continue to blow offshore here. And there’s no sign of any weakening in swell size, in fact we should enjoy a little boost to the swell by mid-afternoon, so Harlyn should be fun later!
And this wind should weaken a little bit in strength by midday.
I wonder if it will brighten up too?

Surf Forecast for Friday 14th November 2014
We’re in for a brighter one today and that swell is likely to have increased a little too even if the wind hasn’t weakened much!
That wind is going to continue to blow fresh from the south, twitching from the south south east to the south sou’ west. So there should be brief opportunities to take on some big and hollow main break stuff or continue to enjoy those Harlyn tubes.
It is nice to have a choice sometimes!
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
This week started out gently enough with only light winds holding that couple to three feet of rolling swell.
The wind is likely to settle to the south for most of the rest of the week, twitching a little from the south west to a fickle south easterly as we go through the middle of the week before settling to the south west again and staying there for most of the rest of the week.
After a fairly medium sized start to the week’s swell we should see sizes increase quite suddenly into midweek with some sizeable stuff rolling our way into Thursday.
We could be surfing those super sheltered spots into the back half of the week with only a little luck.
And the weekend is starting to look superb too. The wind might be a bit twitchy through Saturday settling offshore for Sunday.
If the wind does manage to stay as light as it is forecast to into the weekend, our main surf breaks might just start to sizeably shine!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
