At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 feet.
It is always nice to wake up to a calm and peaceful, bright and still morning, especially when the surf is pumping!
Yep, three to four feet of liquid magic is pouring itself into the bay this morning with smooth faced, peaking and reeling waves screaming off the usual breaks. The tide is just nudging itself in a bit quickly and will probably be a little too high too soon but right now a handful of guys are out and loving it.
The sky is that silver grey of ‘not quite’- not quite anything really. That should brighten up soon enough though, probably just as that breeze changes from offshore to an onshore sou’ westerly!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet.
A foot or two of lazy looking waves are wandering onto the high tide shorebreak, a little casual and a little distracted and you know that the tide will be too high too soon as well. It does look tempting for a lazy summer surf but the other side of the headland is where the action is, it really is pumping over there!
But the wind is forecast to veer to the south west and the swell is going to build, so we might be trekking back here by this evening’s tide!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:38 (1.1m) High Tide: 09:12 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 22nd September 2016
Onshore breezes are going to frustrate today, a decent and solid three foot plus swell pushing in hard but with a westerly breeze adding some lumps and bumps to it all.
Harlyn might just be a little cleaner but it’s still not going to be sharp or smart though.
Let’s hope that the breeze remains a breeze!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
As always, the wind is going to have a big impact on the surf conditions this week, starting out northerly, swinging southerly through midweek before settling more westerly through the end of the week.
With a pretty steady three feet plus of reasonably strong swell predicted to be rolling our way throughout, we should be enjoying some moments of really good surf!
Tuesday saw some clean and offshore conditions with the wind staying that degree or two to the east from north.
Midweek could bring some more clean conditions with a south easterly cleaning the surf up through Wednesday morning. But only for a few hours, those Westerlies will be blowing by afternoon!
And then south westerlies will push our way to end the week, maybe building some extra size into the surf, enough to show something at Harlyn!
So, it all looks quite promising but you’re going to have to be on it to get the best out of this week’s conditions!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
