At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
That nor’ westerly wind is still screeching into the bay this morning, a cold and irritating blow that is chopping and shredding the four feet or so of chaotic surf.
There are some bright gaps in the otherwise dark and threatening sky but the downpours are frequent and longer lasting. It’s Autumn, closing in on winter already.
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
Harlyn is a noisy place to be this morning with the screech of the wind and the roar of the surf, sand and rain mixing in that north westerly blow just to add a further tingle to your cheeks.
There’s no surf and no easy comfort to be had here this morning but it’s still a cool place to just hang for a moment or two.

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 14th October 2020
Offshore winds are going to change the view today, curling and organising a decent couple of feet or so of wind tired surf. Throw in a little sunshine and we have an entirely different day to look forward to after those wet ‘n windy, chilly days of the last wee while.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a slow start we might just end up enjoying quite a pleasant week of small but clean surf.
To start the week though those north westerly winds are going to continue to chill the air temperature and chop any small and weak little swells with early Monday maybe showing something a little cleaner, just an hour or two of south and south westerly winds teasing us at Harlyn.
So it’s likely to be midweek before we wake up to something more pleasant with north easterly breezes sharpening a couple of feet of smoother and more even surf. That wind should calm as it eases its way to a much more pleasant and enjoyable south easterly direction, straight offshore at all of our favourite surf breaks.
Throw in some very pleasant Autumn sunshine and we have the makings of a return to some fun and lazy days of gliding and sliding across small but smooth swells while the sea still carries some leftover summer warmth.
And that could last for a few days too!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
