At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind is blowing in hard this morning although it has lost a lot of its anger from last night. But a frisky sou’ wester continues to blow in hard this morning bending the fruit-laden trees and shrubs and shaking the hedgerows while it shuffles sand across the beach.
And so the surf is a wild mess, six to eight feet of windblown and chopped out, wild and angry waves are charging into the bays, barging their way through anything that presumes to hold them back.
It’s all a wild mess, exciting and fun to watch but not surfable in any way.
Harlyn (3*): 4 feet
Words out already!
The front row of Hrlyn car park is already lined up with vans and cars and all sorts.
And the surf is pumping in too!
Four feet of wind hollowed and grinding dumpers are crashing hard onto the low tide san this morning, the incoming tide an hour or so away and full of promise for more solid and better.
It should be fun here all day long with some bigger waves expected through midmorning, hopefully getting into the five or six foot range before that swell rushes off.
And with the sky quickly brightening and clearing and that wind slowly calming, it could just get better as the day rolls on!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:07 (3.0m) High Tide: 12:31 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 19th September 2018
Another Harlyn day is on the cards with continuing south westerly winds blowing into that thick and lumpy swell as it re-energises through the afternoon.
Three feet in the morning pushing four to five feet by evening.
Those hollow and draining Harlyn close-outs are going to be testing agin today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks like we might be in for a bit of a breezy week this week but we could just see.some big swells rolling our way too!
So Monday should start out lazily enough with that same windswept three foot swell bouncing our way. But with only a little luck that wind will back just to the south east to clean up and smooth out those swell lines.
By Tuesday we should see the start of a big swell.
Eight feet plus of wind driven, thick and crunchy, lengthening wave period swell should be pounding the beaches all along the coast. With the wind pushing hard from the South West, Harlyn will be the place locally. I think that we can expect some board snappingly hollow tubes out there today!
That swell is not going to hang around for too long though.
By Thursday we will see the wind hopefully slipping a little more offshore, helping those still big enough waves to loop and spin their way into Constantine and Booby’s.
Those few midweek days could just be really good if all of the elements miraculously combine, as always!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
