At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A fresh sou’ wester is blowing into the bays this morning, chopping and toppling three or four feet of broken up and jagged surf. Those dark skies are threatening but the air is mild and damp but warm enough.
Let’s have a little look at Harlyn……
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
That gusting south westerly wind is blustering offshore at Harlyn this morning, holding tall those tiny little swells that have managed to swing all the way around the headland and into the bay.
Right now it’s tiny, a foot or two at best but give it a few hours and we’ll be enjoying some of those fun little ‘nip and tuck’ kind of waves.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:18 (3.2m) High Tide: 12:15 (5.3m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 1st October 2021
We’ll be being buffeted by south westerly going westerly going north westerly winds through today, a big and lumping swell being torn and bounced across our bays by those gusting winds. So Harlyn is going to be the place to aim for locally, starting out early with some sharp and hollow, crunchy waves, becoming lumpy through late morning, the lunchtime very low high tide protecting the waves a little, before being fairly blown out on the dropping tide through the afternoon.
So, a testing day of mixed and demanding conditions awaits.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A windy weekend is awaiting our pleasure this weekend, but there might just be a few opportunities to enjoy some testing surf, especially through Saturday early afternoon.
The wind will be gusting hard from the south for most of Saturday but is likely to twitch to the south east through lunchtime. That should hollow and clean the windblown surf at our main breaks but Harlyn is probably going to continue to be our surf spot of the weekend. The wind is likely to be offshore there pretty much all day long and the swell should be big enough to sling three fete and more of thick and crunchy waves into the bay.
Sunday could be a little disappointing with the wind backing first westerly then more north westerly, onshore everywhere.
But the swell should be big and chunky by then allowing for some testing surf at breaks like Hralyn, especially in the morning.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
