Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot and building!
at 7.25 a.m.
Hello Autumn, my old friend!
It’s a dark and damp, dreary old start to the day with a gusting south south easterly wind blustering across the bay, straight offshore and so making for immaculate conditions while also unloading the occasional dump of rain.
That swell hasn’t arrived yet but it is on its way. Small lines are spreading out towards the Quies, a ten minute wait for the biggest and then they’re only a foot or so. But you can feel that it’s coming!
Expect it to be big by tonight – as long as that wind doesn’t blow too hard!!

Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny here this morning but don’t write it off for the whole day, there could be a very decent couple of feet or more of surf around here by this evening!
But it’s going to be the other side today with a brisk offshore wind blowing into a building swell.
Things should improve a lot here through the afternoon and this evening and certainly by tomorrow but right now, it’s flat!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:02 (2.6m) High Tide: 10:33 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 16th October 2014
More southerly winds are expected, a warm wind (relatively!) but full of dampness.
And that wind is going to twitch from south south easterly to south sou’ westerly and maybe back again, making our sheltered breaks the smaller but more consistent option while firing up the main breaks for moments at a time too.
So it looks like it could be a day of searching, seeking out those nuggets of perfect surf which will be out there!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We’re in for a week of booming surf with a deep and deepening low pressure system out there generating some thick and steady swells that will travel our way.
Six to eight to ten feet of powerful, more wintery kind of swells are going to push their way onto our surf breaks, a steady, sometimes strong south, sou’ westerly wind supporting those swells all the way.
Our sheltered spots are going to be the draw this week, Harlyn in particular but with a few other breaks starting to shine too. And if you want a little adventure there are going to be tucked away little breaks all up and down the coast with their very own little characteristics!
Yep, we are in for a surf drenched week of booming waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
