At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind is blowing this morning, shovelling lumps of thick and bowling waves at our already battered little stretch of coastline.
The surf is big and getting bigger with that squally west sou’ wester giving it a push but there’s nothing really surfable on these west facing beaches.
So let’s have a look at Harlyn…….
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Thick and lumpy, bowling waves are swinging into Harlyn this morning but they are taking their time, allowing for a long wait between sets. But when they do come through those waves are thick and hollow and heavy and grinding. Three to four feet right now, the size should just build all morning with that small, neap tide adding just a little push to it.
It should be board breakingly good in just a few hours!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:22 (2.6m) High Tide: 13:42 (5.8m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 9th October 2019
A solid six to eight feet of thick swell will continue to bowl our way all day long while that same gusting westerly wind will blow hard into the bays.
Harlyn will be the place again today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gusting and hard blowing onshore winds are going to push our way all week long, Autumn tightening its grasp as it shakes the leaves from hedgerows and trees.
We should be seeing the first of some big, winter swells pushing into the bays this week, those winds just blasting those big breaking waves across our main surf breaks.
Our sheltered breaks will be the places to go this week, searching out those more tucked away spots, those places that need a big swell to get anything happening. So estuaries and headlands and corners of creeks will be the spots to aim for, as well as those universally known spots too like Harlyn or Western or maybe a road trip further afield.
So, a week of heavy paddling, big drops, loads of blustery squalls but with those bright and cheery bits in-between too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
