At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
Bright blue skies are breaking up streaming ribbons of cloud on this crisper and chillier morning, the breeze slipping in from the north west, keeping air temperatures down while just reminding us that Autumn is knocking on the door.
But the sunshine looks promising and there’s always a little more power to that September sunshine than you might expect.
Three feet or so of crumbly surf is tumbling into the bay this morning, all a Little sloppy and unpredictable but it is holding enough shape to allow some fun to be had on this bright and cheery morning.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or slightly bigger of crumbly surf is lazily swinging into Harlyn this morning, the north westerly breeze just lightly buffeting those tired little waves as they crash towards high tide.
It is an option but the other side is at least a little bigger, if not much cleaner this morning.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:57 (0.9m) High Tide: 08:34 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 14th September 2018
Westerly winds are going to be shoving not much more than a couple of feet of surf our way again today.
The wind might just slip to the south west for a while and that will clean and sharpen conditions at Harlyn but there might just not be enough swell to get all the way around to there anyway.
I’m guessing that two to three feet of bumpy and choppy Constantine is probably going to be the go today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Harlyn might just be vying for our attention this weekend with south westerly winds being forecast and a three foot plus swell eventually building.
So Saturday might just see some really small but glassy and clean conditions at Harlyn, competing with the lure of three feet or so of bumpy and lumpy Constantine surf.
The sun should be making it all look that little bit more attractive too, so maybe that paddle through onshore bumped waves on this side of the headland might just win out over the tiny but sharper conditions at Harlyn.
The wind is likely to steady out by Sunday, a fresh blow from the south west all day long. And the swell is likely to have doubled in size too, definitely pointing the way to Harlyn for some three foot, dredgy and hollow barrels at low tide.
And then we might just see some offshore wind for Monday but that is a bit too far ahead to get excited about just yet.
In the meantime there looks like plenty of surf to be ridden with some pleasant enough weather to enjoy first.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
