At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 5 feet
That pleasantness of yesterday has soon disappeared, a blustery and squally morning breezing in to replace it.
So there’s a grey canopy of chilliness covering us today, a blustery south south easterly wind keeping temperatures down and adding a bit of a sting to those short but sharp showers.
The swell seems to have thickened up though, a wind pushed four feet and bigger of sky matching grey, lumpy swell is washing into the bay.
The tide is so wrong right now that nothing is really breaking but give it an hour or so and we should be enjoying some peaky lumps to drop in on. And give it another couple of hours and we might even be enjoying some brighter and drier weather!
Before it closes in again.
Harlyn (4*): 3 feet
The waves are punching way above their height here this morning!
Three feet or so of curling and hard hitting whompers are crunching onto the sand right now, all hollow and smooth and peaking and peeling (for Harlyn!).
The wind is straight offshore and so is holding those waves until beyond the last possible second before releasing them to spin sideways across the sand.
It is looking good and it’s not much smaller looking than the other side either!
I don’t know how long it’s going to last though!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:34 (2.5m) High Tide: 10:15 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 28th September 2017
Light southerly winds are going to support the smaller, two to hopefully three feet of swell as it bumbles our way. That little swell is likely to have lost a bit of its oomph as well as its size but there should still be plenty enough to have a heap of fun with.
It might even brighten up for an hour or two around midday too!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Onshore winds will return for the start of this week which will coincide with a fairly quickly dropping swell.
But by Tuesday the wind should have calmed allowing those smaller but still fun waves to maybe be more enticing than expected.
a couple of feet of peaking and peeling little shufflers should keep most of us happy, especially if the sunshine kicks in as forecast!
The weather is likely to deteriorate as we go into Wednesday, the wind blowing harder but staying mainly offshore for most of the day. Some solid waves should continue to roll our way providing decent surf at all of our local breaks. bigger but windier at the more exposed spots, smaller but much shapelier at the sheltered spots.
And then it’s back to light onshore breezes for the rest of the week with a mainly three foot swell steadily rolling our way.
So, some fun waves to enjoy, if not necessarily the hoped for September swells of other years!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
