Surf Report for Wednesday 1st October 2014

Constantine (3*):  3 to 4 feet

at 7.10 a.m.


Yet another very pleasant morning is unfolding itself about us this morning, another golden sunburst of a dawn over on the far horizon while some very decent surf pounds the sand on this side.
The breeze is light too, more side to offshore than I was expecting, although that is probably just for a moment as dawn settles in.
The waves are a half decent three feet or so, a little closer together than they have been maybe but still looking good!
The tides have shrunk back to a barely 4 metre rise, so they’re going to be moving slowly today and with the forecasts showing only light breezes throughout the day, we should be in for a full day of fun surf!

And with Autumn knocking ever so gently on our door, we are re-filling our rails with a selection of winter wetsuit goodness along with some styling’ winter-warmer clothing.
And to do that we have to clear a big gap or two! We have a good few unsold summer suits left on our rails following on to what has been a wonderfully mild and enjoyable summer season and they have got to go!
This week we are banging out lots of top quality summer weight wetsuits from HALF PRICE and even less! We have full size ranges on some models too!
So keep your eyes open for some BIG BARGAINS to be had and if you’re down our way drop in on us and check out a bargain or two!


Harlyn (1*):  six inches to 1 foot


It is pretty small around here again this morning, well, tiny really. There are a couple of one to maybe one and a half foot sets pushing through every now and again but there’s a big wait for them and they do look a little weak when they arrive.
After saying that, if you love Harlyn and have a big board then you will probably have a decent surf out there.
And the weather is looking good too!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  16:52  (2.3m)             High Tide:  10:25  (6.3m)



Surf Forecast for Thursday 2nd October 2014

We should see a re-emergence of that swell from that big low out there this morning. A wide open swell period marching solidly our way, that wave-period well into the mid teens and more, those swells are going to pack a punch.
With only light to very light breezes being forecast we shouldn’t lose too much shape even in the afternoon as the sea breeze effect fully kicks in. That swell should be strong enough to push the breeze out of the way.
We could be seeing some really very good surf by the evening!


Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

That deep, deep low pressure system that has been swinging winds around itself all week, parked up to the north of the country should just about be ready to spin some swell our way. A thick and solid swell it should be too!
The winds are forecast to stay light for a little while yet, mainly from the south west, strengthening through the evenings but not too bad through the days.
So there’s going to be plenty of surf about, a decent three to four feet through the week, jumping up more as the weekend arrives.
So it is down to the wind to dictate where the best surf will be and that could very well be Harlyn as we get into the weekend. Or more accurately, it is likely to be a choice between bigger and bumpier west side breaks versus smaller but cleaner sheltered spots like Harlyn.
It is nice to have a choice sometimes!
I’m away for a while from Friday, so there will be no surf report for a while (depending on the swells that roll into Biscay). But it’s looking good for the week here too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
