At 7:15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet
The wind has switched this morning, a milder west sou’ westerly breeze is drifting across the bay while that bumpy blanket of cloud hunches over us, trying to decide which way to go.
It’s pretty close to high tide right now and so the surf is at its worst. There’s a foot or just about two of underlying swell crumbling ashore, the breeze onshore, ruffling the surface.
As the tide drops then we should see some fun little waves to ride as that little swell solidifies and the wavelength opens out.
It is probably going to pick up just a little on the dropping tide but it should definitely become more solid as that wave-period increases.
The sun should shine through too later on!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is almost completely flat as high tide fills into the bay this morning.
There are little lines of crumbly almost one foot waves shuffling ashore but they are not really rideable.
The swell will have to increase a lot before it’s worth paddling out here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:38 (1.4m) High Tide: 08:19 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 18th September 2015
The surf should be a little bit bigger today but that wind looks like it’s going to mess things up by reverting back to north westerly, onshore everywhere along this coast.
So we are likely to be surfing three feet or so of onshore junk surf, maybe being a little cleaner earlier and later but generally being in that three feet and choppy range.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
That little area of low pressure that you can see on the pressure chart above is shuffling up the north eastern side of the atlantic and so should slingshot a little bit of swell our way for the weekend!
And looking at that same chart, it does look like a small area of high pressure might just stall over us during the weekend too.
So, put all that together and you have to think that things are looking promising for a pleasant enough and quite surfy weekend!
A couple to three feet and offshore and sunny through Saturday, followed by a decent three feet and offshore and sunny Sunday!
And about time too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
