At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 feet
It’s a bright ‘n breezy one this morning, a blustery north westerly blowing down the coast and keeping air temperatures low.
It’s also making for choppy surf conditions with an otherwise half decent three foot swell being slopped and junked as it bumbles towards the beach.
After saying that, it should be a bit of fun, especially if you can find somewhere a little more sheltered from this wind.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The north westerly wind is making for choppy conditions at Harlyn but then there’s not that much swell managing to find its way into the bay either.
There’s barely a foot of slopped and chopped little surf trickling onto the sand, so if you do want a surf today then it’s the other side and it’s not great over there either!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:45 (2.4m) High Tide: 10:59 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 2nd November 2018
Light, light breezes should allow for some cleaner and smarter surf conditions today, the three feet or so of fun swell just having enough wave period to it to make it that little bit more powerful.
We should see some brighter weather too, if only for a while.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
It looks like we might be in for a change in the weather and surf conditions as this school half term period finally comes to an end after staggering itself over a three week period.
This week should quietly end with some bright enough weather and clean enough surf on Friday, a decent day of three foot fun-in-the-sun surf.
By Saturday though a strengthening southerly wind will be blowing hard and pushing a growing swell our way.
Starting out in the four foot range, we should be seeing six to eight feet of wind ravaged surf battering the main breaks by evening.
Harlyn is likely to be the venue today and that should be four feet and getting bigger through the day, with some hollow shut-down waves just to keep you on your toes.
By Sunday we will be seeing some big, big surf, those winds having backed to the south west and then calming as the day goes on.
So, big Harlyn is likely to start the day but with that wind easing to a south easterly breeze, offshore at our main breaks and so opening up a few more exciting options if you’re fit enough and strong enough and experienced enough!
If that happens before darkness we could just be in for some fairly special and very big surf. With a late teens wave period on a ten foot plus swell height, combined with super light offshore breezes, there could just be some epic waves out there!
Time will tell though.
And then the start of next week looks really very good with a predicted and much more user friendly six foot swell gliding in against light offshore breezes along with some very pleasant Autumn sunshine.
So, there’s a real mix of conditions to look forward to this weekend with some big and gnarly surf followed by some testing but almost perfect surf to enjoy afterwards.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
