At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
The sun is bursting through over the bays in a slo-mo kind of way this morning, a clear blue sky gradually easing itself above us while that north westerly breeze calms itself.
A crumbly, bumpy three feet of deep blue and wintery looking surf is tumbling ashore, some bigger sets showing enough shape to tempt you out there. The breeze should ease even more through midday making this afternoon’s incoming tide worth keeping an eye on.
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
The sky has cleared and that north westerly breeze has lightened but most of the choppy and sloppy little swell is missing the bay as the tide drops back anyway.
A foot or two at most of crumbly and sloppy little surf is shuffling across the sand. It might improve on this afternoon’s tide but it is a little cleaner on the other side as well as being bigger.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:15 (1.7m) High Tide: 17:07 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 30th September 2020
South westerly winds and a building swell are going drive us all around to Harlyn today, starting out smallish and offshore, the afternoon tide producing much bigger, sand drenching barrels.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another week of wind and mixed weather is going to make us work for our surf rewards this week.
Harlyn looks to be the star of the show as those booming autumn swells get washed our way on mainly westerly winds. Starting out in the two to three foot range and looking clean in south westerly winds, the tides and wind will soon conspire to provide choppier conditions, even at Harlyn.
And that’s the story of this week, the wind veering from the south west to the north west each day, not really staying in either direction for more than a few hours at a time and all the time the swell gradually but steadily building.
We should end up having enjoyed some good surf this week but we are going to have to watch and wait and pounce and enjoy.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
