Surf Report for Thursday 8th November 2018

At 7.40 a.m:  

Constantine (1*):  6 to 8 feet  

It’s another wet and overcast one this morning but it’s cosy and calm and fairly mild too.
And six feet and bigger of thick and lumpy waves are exploding into the bay again this morning too, that light, light breeze just making it all a little ruffled and bouncy. And at that size, just a little ruffle and bounce make for a difficult paddle.
There will be Point breaks and Reef breaks and Rivermouth breaks up and down the coast which will be breaking so much better than here today, especially as that southerly wind strengthens.
In the meantime though if you don’t want to travel and don’t want to paddle, there’s always Harlyn….  

 

Harlyn (4*):  3 to 4 feet  

You have to wait for them but some thick and heavy three to four foot waves are grinding onto the sand at Harlyn this morning on the dropping tide.
The breeze is light, the rain trickling steadily down and some of those barrels are spitting. And it’s only going to get better!
What else are you going to do on a rainy November Thursday?  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  11:54  (0.9m)              High Tide:  17:47  (7.5m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 9th November 2018  

Another grey and damp day filled with gusting southerly winds along with a slightly smaller but still thick and punchy swell.
Smaller but still thick and grinding, sand filled barrels should be keeping us amused at Harlyn again all day long!  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

A fat low pressure system is slowly crawling by the UK this weekend, spinning off loads of swell but too close not make things windy too.
So it looks like we are in for a blustery one with strong south westerly winds keeping the air mild and wet all the way through the weekend.
And that always points to Harlyn.
A typical blustery Harlyn weekend awaits with some big and churning, hollow waves expected all weekend long, low tide offering some board snappingly heavy stuff while the bigger spring high tide will make things just a little fatter.
Or you could hit up a road trip and surfari off to one of those rare breaking Rivermouths or Points, one of those whispered about breaks that only work on the rarest of occasions when spring tide, big swell and south westerly wind combine to produce perfection!
Or not.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
