At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
Another beautiful day is waking the coastline this morning with musical birdsong accompanying a sunburst dawn, light layers of twinkling frost showing the cold.
The air is still, the sky is clear and lines of a new swell are drifting into the bay.
Yes, a couple of feet of smooth and glassy swell lines are sliding ashore, curling and crashing onto the high tide sand in the early morning sunshine.
The dropping tide should show more surf as that swell slowly fills but I guess that an onshore breeze might kick in this afternoon.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
The bay is mist filled and atmospheric again this morning, the bright dawn sunlight reflecting off ribbons of marine mist.
And there are tiny swell lines washing through this morning too, just to add another level of interest to an already enchanting scene.
It will be an entirely different view by the weekend but for now it is quite beautiful!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:14 (1.9m) High Tide: 08:43 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Halloween, Wednesday 31st October 2018
A lightly south easterly breeze is likely to be caressing a pleasantly solid three to four foot swell as it rhythmically rolls our way.
The weather might deteriorate a little but the surf should make up for that!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those cold offshores are likely to continue well into the start of this week, a slower but still very chilly north easterly wind frustrating us by providing ultra clean conditions for the all but flat surf.
Monday is likely to be tiny at best, sunny and bright and cheery but with only tiny little immaculately shaped waves.
We might just enjoy some more rideable surf by Tuesday but still only in the foot or two range and then only if we’re lucky. All the time the wind, what little there is of it, remains offshore from the north east, only gradually drifting to the south east through Wednesday.
And so it’s likely to be midweek before we see a change, the wind switching to the south west overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday morning bringing milder air our way and also supporting a new swell as it arrives.
So the back half of the week will offer some bigger but choppier surf at our main breaks with smaller but neater little waves managing to get around to Harlyn.
And then the weekend is starting to look big, real big!
But that is a long way off yet!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
