At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet.
It’s a cold and breezy morning, the seagulls howling their discomfort as they sideslip along the wind currents, cloud banks building on each other.
It’s not that clever an assumption to think that it might just rain later!
And the surf is junk too with barely a foot or two of windswept chop slopping onto the beach.
The size of the surf will increase as we go through the day, the wind is fresh from the west, forecast to switch to the south west, supporting the growing swell.
We might just be enjoying some small but cleanish Harlyn by this afternoon!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
There’s hardly any surf managing to get in here yet this morning and what little there is, is windswept and sloppy and choppy.
The forecasts are showing an increase in size as we go through the day and the wind should eventually settle to the south west, hopefully by early afternoon.
And so we might just be enjoying some small but more shapely surf here before dark!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 9th November 2016
Bigger swells should be rolling our way today but it is all going to be blown raggedy by a strong (and cold!) north westerly wind.
We will probably be seeing four to five feet of mixed and messy surf all day long.
Unless you fancy a trip to the far coast? That’s probably going to be the call for the erst of the week too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A breezy week is waiting, the week having started out with a cold north easterly gusting offshore against some tiny waves but quickly swinging onshore as we go into Tuesday.
Tuesday morning is likely to continue to feel cold in the wind before we see a windswitch to the south west, a bit of a more swell supporting and milder (but usually damper) direction.
That is likely to be short-lived, those north westerlies returning by Wednesday.
But hopefully it will have introduced a new swell by then, at least allowing some bigger waves to limp in and opening up some south coast opportunities.
And that’s the way it’s likely to stay for most of the rest of the week, brisk onshore winds, mainly blowing from the north west and junking out the building surf.
Yes, it could indeed be a good week to aim for the far coast!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
