At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
The wind has dropped back this morning, it is still onshore, from the north west today but only a breeze and still easing too.
So the surf is till sloppy with four or five feet maybe of rolling surf tumbling into the bay just after high tide. And the weather is still miserably wet and dull but it does look like it might just brighten up soon enough.
It could just end up being a day of two halves today with some better surf and much better weather by this afternoon.
Harlyn (2*): 3 feet
The north easterly breeze might be lighter than it has been for days but it is still straight onshore at Harlyn this morning and still strong enough to make bit of a sloppy mess of the three feet or so of wishy washy looking surf.
The dropping tide is having its effect on it too making you think that this afternoon’s tide might just push something a lot better our way.
It could well be worth checking back there early this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:36 (1.0m) High Tide: 18:29 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Friday v29th November 2019
We might just enjoy some pleasant surf today.
The wind is forecast to switch offshore by late afternoon, a steady south easterly breezing towards a steady three feet or so of strong enough swell.
It might start to feel colder today but the surf could just be a lot of fun!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Blustering offshore winds are going to make for colder temperatures this weekend, starting out fresh and from the east through Saturday, calming a little and backing a few degrees more to the north east for Sunday.
Those small waves of Saturday are going to be buffeted in the dampness of a late autumn cold spell, that easterly wind ratcheting up gusts of 35 to 40 miles per hour straight into the faces of those trying little waves.
If you can snuggle down beneath a headland on the pushing tide you should get some good ones, certainly at those more swell exposed spots anyway.
By Sunday the wind should have calmed to more of a breeze, still really cold as it travels all the way down the coast from colder lands but with some bright wintery sunshine to rescue the situation. And as the wind eases in strength, more swell is going to be allowed through, a decent three feet plus peeling and breaking at our favourite surf spots.
Yep, Sunday should be very okay – as long as you have e a decent wetsuit! So it’s a good job that we have a whole range of suits on sale at the shop this weekend!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
