At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Ha, there’s a lot of weather out there today!
The early morning sunshine is brightening the bay between downpours while a thick and dark horizon looks full of wet, the breeze steady and from the west sou’ west, not cold but hardly mild either.
And so four or five feet of thick and rolling surf is rumbling ashore, the high tide fattening those still almost hollow waves, promising better for later maybe?
It’s definitely going to be bigger!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of lumpy surf is crumbling in the high tide depths of Harlyn this morning, the breeze offshore but not managing to smooth it out just yet. Give it a couple of hours though and it should all be a bit sharper and hollower and much more fun.
The surf is likely to build in size throughout the day, showing itself more on this evening’s tide when it should get quite big!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:23 (1.4m) High Tide: 20:17 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 18th October 2019
Thumping swells are going to be crashing ashore in amongst the hard falling showers today, a gusting south westerly wind adding momentum to those already fast moving lumps of waves.
Harlyn is likely to be the ‘go to‘ spot locally where we can expect some board-snappingly hollow and sand-drenched four to six foot barrels!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We can expect a breezy start to the Autumn school holidays on Saturday morning but the wind should calm fairly quickly, a brisk and cool north westerly soon settling down to a steadier onshore breeze.
The still quite big surf is likely to continue to be lumpy, bumpy and choppy for most of the day though, the evening maybe offering something a little cleaner and more organised but still mainly onshore and so still all a bit junky.
Sunday is likely to be calmer and brighter with those same light north westerly breezes, gusting a little more through the afternoon, not allowing much more than a fun session or two in the couple of feet or so of sloppy and weakish surf.
The start of next week is promising to be very pleasant with light offshore winds, small but super clean little surf and bright, bright weather.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
