Constantine (3*): 3 feet
at 7.10 a.m.
It’s a pleasantly mild and cosy kind of start to the day today, that thick and grey canopy of cloud snuggling above us full of the threat of more rain, the wind non-existent, yet.
The surf hasn’t arrived yet either!
There’s a very fun looking three feet or so of glassy smoothness sliding into the bay, less than half the size we were expecting. But it’s early yet and those swell lines are going to increase.
Right now though, as the tide washes high, there’s a very surfable three feet of fun looking surf which should become sharper and snappier as the tide drops out.
By this afternoon we should be seeing twice the size of surf rolling through. We might even enjoy some offshore breezes through midday before we start losing that shape to a south westerly wind by late afternoon, just as that swell starts to make its strength felt.
I wouldn’t be surprise if we were surfing Harlyn by this afternoon, although that’s difficult to believe as we look out on the surf right now!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s pretty much superflat around here this morning! There’s barely a light wash running along the high tide mark on the sand as those ripples shish along.
But keep your eyes on it here, we could just be seeing some pleasant surf by this afternoon.
The other side is likely to be the place to be surfing this morning but there is a new swell due and it should be rolling our way sometime today. It could be rollin through here on this evening’s tide!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:12 (1.7m) High Tide: 20:07 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 12th November 2014
A solid swell should be rolling our way by today, the wind steady and from the south west.
And they are the perfect set of ingredients for a lovely day surf riding at Harlyn Bay!
There to four feet and offshore at Harlyn?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
This week looks like starting out quite gently with only light winds holding a couple to three feet of rolling swell.
The wind is likely to settle to the south for most of the week, twitching a little from the south west to a steady south easterly as we start the week before settling to the south south west during midweek and staying there for most of the rest of the week.
After a fairly medium sized start to the week’s swell we should see sizes increase quite suddenly into midweek with some sizeable stuff rolling our way by Wednesday.
We could be surfing those super sheltered spots from midweek with only a little luck. Although if the wind does manage to stay as light as it is forecast into the end of the week, our main surf breaks might just start to sizeably shine!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
