At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
The wind is rattling across the fields this morning driving squalls of rain ahead of the dull dawn of a rain sodden morning.
The waves are hip hopping onto those washed out sandbars, a crumbling mess of two to three foot junk surf twitching and shaking onto the high tide shoredump.
That north westerly wind is trashing the surf and chilling the air this morning but give it a few hours and at least the brighter weather will make the surf look better, even if it doesn’t actually get any better!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot of sloppy and lazy, uneven and weak looking little waves are lightly washing the high tide bank here this morning, the north westerly wind squealing into the bay in a hurry.
If you need to surf more small and junky surf then the breaks on the other side of the headland are a little bit bigger.
Only a little bit bigger and just as weak and choppy though.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:17 (0.8m) High Tide: 19:11 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 22nd September 2017
Have you seen all the footage of Kelly’s Wave Ranch that is flooding social media this week?
Well today’s surf here is going to be the exact opposite of that; a couple to three feet of onshore junked surf is probably going to build to three to four feet through the afternoon.
But the south westerly wind will continue chop and slop those windblown and close-fetch waves at all of our preferred surfbreaks.
With just a bit of luck though the wind should ease while the swell continues to build, allowing Harlyn to shine just a little through the evening.
Only a couple of feet but a cleaner if snappier couple of feet should entertain us at Harlyn through the evening!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This could well be a weekend of two halves and the second half might just end up clawing its way into the ‘epic’ scale of surflore!
A steady three to four foot swell is likely to be rolling smoothly our way through Saturday, a decent wave interval allowing time to paddle out while clearer skies add to the enjoyment. The southerly wind is likely to ease as the day stretches out, gradually drifting offshore through the afternoon…. just as the leftover swells from all that hurricane activity over the other side of the pond starts to reach us!
And Sunday is likely to dawn with six to eight feet of grinding swell reeling onto all of our points and reefs and sandbars all along the coast!
Forget the weather, the breeze is set to be offshore, the swell should pump and today just should end up being a day amongst days!
Take it easy out there, conditions could just get real!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
