A hazy, misty and damp morning is upon us but it is extraordinarily mild too.
The wind has all but disappeared, a light southerly breeze gently blowing from the south but all of the forecasts are showing that to strengthen through the morning. It is one of those days that feels better than it looks one you’re out there!
The waves aren’t all that, there’s one to two feet of sleepy surf washing in with half decent and much bigger sets washing through but a good ten minutes plus apart. So you’re going to have to be patient today!
But there are some fun looking gliders, those occasional set waves looking a bit more than that.
The weather should brighten by lunchtime again and those waves should sharpen up a little later on the dropping tide. So it should end up being pleasant enough day to enjoy a gliding surf eventually!

We have just received our main delivery of O’Neill winter wetsuits and how gorgeous are they! So, if you’re looking to be warm and cosy this winter then drop in on us, we will probably have something to your liking!
By the way, don’t forget that we are clearing out loads of summer wetsuits. We have rails of them from generally around 30, 40, and even 50% off, starting from £50.
That’s Xcel, O’Neill and Alder with only one or two Quikky suits left.
So, if you’re around the area this week, it might just be worth having a little look-see!

Harlyn (0*):  Flat to 1 foot

Ah, it’s so small around here this morning, as pretty as a picture with those tiny but immaculate waves folding themselves across the sand but it is tiny.
A foot maximum, those crisp and smart waves are whipcracking onto the beach just a couple of hours ahead of high tide and so you have to think that that is as big as it’s going to be today.
Nope, it’s the other side today, at least it’s a couple of feet or so over there but the wind is forecast to be a little sideshore there later.

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  15:47  (2.1m)           High Tide:  09:18  (6.5m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 31st October 2014

We should be seeing some bigger waves today, a decent three feet plus of thicker swell should be washing our way, gradually building through the day.
The wind is likely to continue from the south, hopefully a fraction to the south east until mid-afternoon offering some cleaner, more offshore conditions. But that’s not definite!
But overall, we should be in for a very pleasant day of okay surf. And it’s likely to be supermild for the end of October!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

As those low pressure systems jostle around the north atlantic there will be a reduction in swell and wind strength through the middle of the week.
But gradually another swell generating depression will settle out to the west and hopefully might lazily track to the north.
That should throw some swell our way for the end of the week, maybe building into something a little more substantial through the weekend.
And then,as always, it’s down to the winds to decide what conditions will be like when those swells reach us.
So Thursday is looking to be maybe the smallest day of the week with only a foot or two of swell along with a steady sideshore wind. It should be bright enough and dry enough for the half term beach goers but might not be the best day of the week for a surf.
Friday will probably see a building swell pushing hard onto our beaches, the wind freshening as well. For some of the time that wind might just be offshore but for most of the day it is more likely to be sideshore at our main breaks. Whether the swell will build enough to show anything worthwhile at Harlyn, well we’ll have to wait and see but there should be by the evening.
By the weekend though there should be plenty of surf to ride at Harlyn, the wind south westerly and steadily blowing along with a rolling four feet or so of thick swell.
Yep, it looks like another three foolish, Harlyn weekend lies in wait!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
