At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind has dropped after yesterday’s blow through and the sky is clearer too, allowing a bright and cheery morning to wake us gently.
The lightest of breezes is drifting up from the south, not quite offshore but trying. And so the three feet or so of disorganised and irregular surf isn’t quite as clean as it is likely to be at other breaks further down the coast but it is trying.
Right now the tide is at that spot where nothing is breaking. It was probably really good an hour ago and will most likely be really quite good in an hour or two’s time but right now there’s not much for those waves to break on.
Give it an hour or two and it could just be fun, fun, fun!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Small but perfectly formed little snappy ones are funnelling through here this morning. A foot or two of offshore hollowed and screeching little waves are wrapping themselves off the Rock before ricocheting across the beach.
Harlyn has had its groove on the last couple of days but it really is quite tiny today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:30 (2.9m) High Tide: 11:05 (5.7m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 29th September 2017
The mighty Atlantic will roar this morning with thick and powerful waves pouring themselves into our bays and coves.
Six to eight feet of strong and powerful, rolling waves will be battering the headlands and barging the reefs while lightly throwing tonnes of sand casually around the place.
And then a blustery westerly wind will blow some damper weather our way through the afternoon or evening after a fairly dry cheerful start.
I think that today will be spent in search of shelter, seeking out those tucked away little more easterly facing spots.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
How much do you love Harlyn?
I think that you might just be about to find out!
With big and thick and lumpy swells heading our way this weekend, all being happily blown along by blustery and gusting sou’ westerly winds, we are looking at a proper Autumn Harlyn weekend!
Board snappingly hollow, sand grindingly thick, superfast shutdowns can be expected all weekend long!
The late morning brightness of Saturday will soon be replaced by heavy showers and greyness by Sunday, the south westerly blow blasting out the backing track for those munchy crunchy waves!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
