At 8.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 foot
The bay is quiet this morning, a silver canopy of low level cloud hugging the horizons, the offshore breeze light and from the south south east, gently brushing against a small one to two feet of peaking and peeling little surf.
That’s going to change and soon!
Days like these are such fun, with a thick and lumpy, big swell marching our way, steady offshore winds lining up and strengthening all day while the sand in the bays have been piled nicely from all those recent storms.
The next few days could just reveal some epic surf for anyone who is interested!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The breeze is lightly whispering offshore at Harlyn this morning, drifting out to meet tiny but sharp little waves as they curl their way onto the sand.
The wave size is likely to increase all day long, doubling in size by lunchtime and double that before dark.
Harlyn could be beckoning before too long!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:16 (2.3m) High Tide: 09:40 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 20th November 2019
We are expecting some solid surf to be bowling into our bays today, six to eight feet and bigger of stretched wave-period swell booming onto the coast with brisk offshore winds holding those waves tall and hollow all the way top shore.
It could just be mighty epic today – especially if you find that right spot at just the right time!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
This could be the week that we have been waiting for with strong swells rolling our way through the back half of the week, held tall by eventually calming offshore winds.
We are likely to start the week drenched in some late autumn sunshine, a light south easterly breeze preening the one to two feet of playful little surf through Monday.
The wind and swell are both going to gradually strengthen through Tuesday, the waves getting real big by Wednesday, all the time those south easterlies increasing in strength, blowing too hard except at those headland sheltered spots that we all crave.
And then as we ease our way into the back half of the week, the wind strength should ease too, allowing those big and booming swells some space to explode ashore, creating peaks and tubes and cavernous pits wherever you look!
Four to six feet easing gradually to three to four feet of offshore sculpted, hollow and powerful waves are likely to be breaking our way well into the weekend!
So, wax down the winter guns, we might just need them (at last!)!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
