At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
We are shrouded in fog and mist and mizzle and drizzle once again this morning, a steady south westerly wind at least keeping the air temperature relatively mild.
The surf is bigger, probably six feet and bigger but still all choppy and sloppy and bouncy and reforming as the backwash hits the sidebounce.
Harlyn could be rocking though……..
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
Ah, three to four feet of smooth faced and fun looking walls are spinning off the Rock as the tide nudges in against high.
The set waves are standing tall, held up by that steady and offshore sou’ wester, before crashing and spinning across the bay. A heap of them are closing out but there are more than usual of those peeling zippers to test your nimbleness!
Yep, it’s looking good and it should get bigger and better too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:56 (1.7m) High Tide: 08:35 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 25th October 2017
The wind is forecast to drop to a light, light breeze today and, if we are only a little lucky, that breeze could whisper offshore through the morning!
Throw in some along awaited sunshine (if only for an few hours!) and we have the makings of a surf special day!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Once we have shaken these storms off then we should be left alone to enjoy what is developing into a very pleasant week ahead!
But first we have to endure the left over winds and swells of the weekend’s blow through. The week will start with a more typical Autumn south westerly wind taking control.
A three to four foot swell is likely to be shepherded into Harlyn, to meet that same supporting wind head on. By Tuesday that wind will have strengthened pushing in more swell while at the same time hollowing out those thick and warpy Harlyn waves.
So a blustery start to the school half term week will only gradually ease off, the wind dying away completely by midweek, hopefully sliding offshore for the back half of the week.
It could very definitely be a week of two distinct halves, the back half of the week finally delivering some clean, fun and bright surf conditions!
But we have a few days of breeziness to endure before then!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
