At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A gorgeous morning is spreading its brightness from horizon to horizon this morning, the air absolutely still, the sky clear and pale, pale blue, the sea a shimmering pool of glass.
And there’s the start of a new swell too!
A couple of feet of satin smooth and peeling little surf is swooshing across the sand, small and pretty and glassy right now but with every forecast showing it to get bigger as the day rolls on.
If you have access to a surfboard you might want to slip out there at some stage today!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The cold air temperature and mild sea temperature is causing that gossamer fine mist above the ocean at Harlyn this morning, the very occasional set of tiny waves gliding smoothly into the sunlight. It is all quite magical here today and if you wait long enough there is the odd rideable little wave spinning through eventually.
All the surf is over on the other side of the headland right now but those little waves that are managing to get into the bay here should only improve throughout the day.
And by the weekend this will be the place to be!
Right now though it is the other side for some surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:31 (2.3m) High Tide: 12:41 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th October 2019.
Westerly winds are going to bump and chop the three to four foot swell as it powers our way today.
That wind is likely to gradually strengthen throughout the day becoming blustery by the evening.
So Harlyn is likely to be our best option, by this afternoon anyway.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A calm and peaceful week lies ahead with the promise of fine weather, light offshore breezes, plenty of sunshine but only small surf.
It’s likely to be at least midweek before we see any surf bigger than tiny but conditions should stay clean and organised, allowing some longboard gliding or softboard shredding if you pick just the right moments.
As those little waves trip over the shallows and curl their way to the beach, the school half-term visitors should be loving life along with the Surf School learners and old school stylers.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
