At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
Low level cloud is dulling the sky on an otherwise almost windless morning down in the bay today while two to three feet of surf makes the view a little more interesting.
The sun may gradually filter through later on and the surf might smooth out and become a little more solid. But, yes, there are a couple of ‘maybes’ and ‘mights be’s’ in that one!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Barely a foot or so of smooth looking little swell is being absorbed by the high tide depths at Harlyn this morning, a brighter sky peeking through some scattered cloud cover.
The breeze is superlight and offshore right now but is forecast to slip to the north west, although it should remain so light as to not really affect it all too much, making it an ideal place for a swim or paddle!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:28 (0.9m) High Tide: 19:20 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 23rd September 2021
Westerly winds are likely to be whistling into the bays today, maybe shoving a bit of early morning dampness our way and hopefully pushing a few feet of lumpy swell onto our surf breaks.
We should have the choice of a thick and lumpy four feet to surf at our main breaks or a couple of feet of something cleaner at Harlyn and the other more sheltered spots.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Light breezes will start this week, those chilly, northerly breezes reminding us that summer is drifting away to be replaced by something cooler and more autumnal.
By midweek we’ll be back to a more normal westerly going sou’ westerly air flow which will push more surf our way.
So the week will start with a building swell being slopped a bit by an onshore northerly breeze, that swell cleaning but weakening as the breeze eases to the north east, more offshore.
By midweek a brisker westerly will start to push a more lumpy swell our way, that wind strengthening and backing to the south west by week’s end.
So we could very well be surfing three feet of lumpy but offshore hollowed Harlyn by the end of the week, getting bigger by the end of the weekend.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
