At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
“And hard the wind blows m’dear, hard the wind blows!”
A gusting west sou’ wester is blustering into the bays this morning, those heavy rain squalls pressure washing and scrubbing the summer stained beach, sunny gaps between those rain sodden cloud bundles throwing some dryness in between.
Four feet or so of tossed and turned, wind stirred waves are bundling onto the sand like a thousand washerwomen scouring the beach.
Those waves are going to grow and grow as the day rolls on, doubling and trebling in size and then getting bigger!
So, let’s have a little look at Harlyn………
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The hard gusting west sou’ westerly wind is blasting offshore at Harlyn this morning, holding the two to three feet of dark and brooding, ribbed blue waves tall until they explode onto the sand.
Those waves are going to build with the tide and then continue to grow through the afternoon too!
The weather? Meeugh; wet ‘n windy.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:40 (2.4m) High Tide: 11:12 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 25th September 2020
North westerly winds are going to trash the thick and lumpy surf all along this coast today, the swell dropping with the tide.
We’re going to have to look to the south coast for cleaner conditions but there might not be too much size over there!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The forecasts for the weekend are changing quite quickly as the North Atlantic shakes and shimmies with those autumn blows.
A lot of those big and powerful, more wintery swells that we were expecting this weekend now look as though they’re going to pass by, only flinging a few leftover swells our way just to keep us on our toes.
As the swell drops away through Saturday, the wind now looks like it could just suddenly calm while backing Easterly, straight offshore at our favourite breaks!
Saturday afternoon could just bring some very enjoyable surf all along the coast.
Sunday might be more mixed with the three foot swell being crumbled a little through the afternoon by the sea breeze effect of a chilly but sunny Sunday.
But before and after should show some clean and snappy, fun little surf.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
