At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s a filthy one out there this morning, the wind is howling, the rain is sheeting and the temperatures are low.
Four feet or so of wild and mixed up surf is being blasted ashore through drenching squalls driven by a screaming westerly wind.
There’s nothing worth surfing out there and probably all along this coast but the swell is building and the wind is forecast to end up from the north west. I hear the south coast is beckoning!!
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
It is cleaner here than the other side but the wind is still too strong and although sideshore right now, is forecast to go onshore pretty soon.
But a couple to three feet of windswept and bouncy waves are struggling onto the high tide bank at the moment.
The wind will strengthen though and will continue to swing more onshore while the swell size is likely to increase a lot.
No, it’s not looking too promising!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:37 (0.9m) High Tide: 19:32 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 7th November 2017
North westerly winds will be chopping the six feet or so of windswept swell that will be rolling our way.
It is likely to be brighter and lighter and drier today but the surf on this coast is probably going to be mainly slopped out junk surf.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
The brighter and milder south westerly wind of Monday will be quickly replaced by a return to north westerlies by Tuesday, just as the swell builds up to a decent size.
Those bigger, five to six feet plus waves of Tuesday and Wednesday will be windblown and raggedy with only the slimmest of chances of something cleaner on Wednesday morning as the wind hits direct north.
And then as the wind eases and backs more westerly, the surf eases away too.
So, after Monday’s choice between clean but tiny surf at Harlyn versus bigger but choppier main breaks, our decision will be whether its worth the journey over to the far coast in search of cleaner conditions or settle for more onshore chop on this coast!
The weather should be mainly fine for most of the week though!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
