At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A gusting west sou’ wester seems to be strengthening this morning, last night’s deluges having moved on to soak other parts. So right now the sky is bright and blue, that pale blue of autumn with dull and grey horizons but cheery enough above.
But that still doesn’t improve the surf which is a mixed and messed three feet or so of fairly weak looking stuff.
That will change though and pretty soon!
We should see the swell building and strengthening throughout the afternoon, still being chopped and pushed around by that wind at our main surf breaks but cleaner and sharper at Harlyn and other sheltered spots.
Take it easy out there, it could get real big later!
And I’m away to take it easy myself, being scheduled for a little bit of surgery in the morning. So no surfcheck for a little while, hopefully back on track soon enough though!
In the meantime enjoy those big swells that are heading our way but take care too!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
Six inches to a foot of smooth and sharp little waves are ricocheting across the sand at Harlyn this morning, the wind gusting offshore beneath a sky of blue.
But it should be all change this afternoon as the swell builds and builds and builds!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:49 (2.4m) High Tide: 13:59 (5.8m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 25th September 2019
Big Wednesday should be showing some thick and lumpy, heavy swells surging our way.
Gusting south westerly winds are likely to be sending everyone scurrying around to Harlyn looking to drop in on some solid six to eight foot barrels all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Thick and heavy, rolling autumn swells will be entertaining us all week long, our first taste of winter’s weight to shove and push us all towards those more sheltered surfbreaks.
By midweek those swells should be getting into the large and extra large size range, barging into our surf breaks and battering our headlands and coves.
It could be one of those weeks to go exploring for mysto spots in search of those little heard of breaks, the stuff of myth and legends, the places that only break now and again, up estuaries and around corners.
But take it easy out there, it should be big and it should be testing!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
