At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
Hard bursts of torrential rain are riding in on another strong blowing and blustery sou’ westerly, the sky and land merging into a grey blanket of dreary dampness this morning. And yet it’s mild and somehow quite pleasant in amongst it all!
The surf has been battered into a mess of junk though, four to six feet and bigger of sloppy and windblown chop is stuttering its way into the bay, not sure of where to break until it hits those shallows and erupts.
Nope, Harlyn is the place again today, not here!
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 4 feet
A beautifully hollow and peeling four foot right-hander screamed off the Rock as I pulled into Harlyn this morning but I didn’t see another one while I was there.
Three feet of sometimes hollow and curving, sometimes (a lot of times) closing out, sometimes shoredumping, thick and lumpy waves are pounding the sand again this morning.
You have to love Harlyn though, the crowds, the close-outs, the odd grumpy seal, the odd grumpy old bloke, the odd fool, hippies, hipsters, show-offs and poets, they’re all at Harlyn.
And all those straight handers to play in!
It could be good today though!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Friday 21st September 2018
More blustery winds are going to blow our way today, now pushing in from the west so putting some slop into the three feet plus of hard breaking waves at Harlyn.
It should still be well worth getting in but it’s not going to be as offshore as it has been!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed up weekend is waiting for us this weekend, those hard blowing winds relaxing just for a moment before coming back hard.
Following Friday’s westerly winds, Saturday should be much calmer with the chance of the breeze backing offshore by mid morning. If all goes to plan we should be enjoying three to four feet of clean surf back at our main surf breaks, getting quite glassy for a while before the wind strengthens into the evening.
It could just get very good though through midday and into the afternoon though.
Make the most of Saturday, the wind will be northerly by Sunday, maybe with an hour or two of south westerlies at first light to allow Harlyn to hollow out a few four footers but very quickly the wind will be onshore all along the coast.
Next week is starting to look pleasant but that is too far off to predict.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
