At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A dark and brooding backdrop of a sky is being highlighted by a bright and fiery sunrise this morning, the pastures and paddocks shining brilliant yellows and greens, the sea a brooding darkness of turquoise.
The tide is pretty much full right now but there are little waves still trying to break through the deep high tide.
A couple of feet of offshore groomed and peeling little waves are being front lit by that bright sunrise, the dark sky and sea only enhancing the whiteness of the broken waves.
As the tide drops out we should be seeing a couple of feet of fun little surf being groomed into hollow little peelers by the north easterly wind.
I think that we can expect some wetness today though!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s all but flat here this morning, that brisk north easterly wind onshore and making for a sloppier sea surface.
It’s the other side of the headland for a surf today, it is small over there but it’s clean and organised and looks like fun.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:09 (1.2m) High Tide: 20:03 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 17th September 2015
And back blow those south westerlies again.
A westerly wind is likely to start the day but that will quickly slide to the south west, hopefully pushing some more waves our way.
There should be that underlying 10 second wave-period swell with a wind swell on top of it and so we can expect there to be some surf getting around and into Harlyn, which would be good, the south westerly wind being offshore around there.
So, it looks like we should be enjoying a couple of feet of offshore Harlyn through the afternoon!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
That stormy start to the week is going to set a bit of a pattern for the coming wee while I think.
There are a few little lows out in the Atlantic lining up to blow themselves across us over the next week or two and so there should be plenty of surf rolling through but plenty of wind too.
By Wednesday that wind is likely to have shifted to the north, hopefully north easterly, cooling things down a lot but at least helping to shape the small, small surf into something more desirable.
And then, as we go into the back half of the week the pattern is likely to repeat.
Strong onshores through Thursday pushing up the swell and lighting up Harlyn again by the afternoon, the wind again sliding to the north and junking things out for Friday.
So, plenty of surf and loads of weather all week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
