At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 feet
We seem to have lost that beautiful but cold frost of the last few days but the sky is still bright and the air remains still.
And so, amongst the early morning bird noise and general countryside yawnings, the sound of crashing waves can be heard from a distance, amping the anticipation of some good surf today.
And yes, three to four feet of smooth and glassy, thick and wedgy waves are gliding into the bays, the shallow sandbanks tripping the odd curling peak into something a little hollower.
There’s no breeze at all yet, with only a light south easterly forecast (offshore), although that might strengthen a little during mid afternoon.
So, the sun is shining, the surf is curling its way in and the breeze is light.
Have a good surf!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
At first sight it looks surprisingly flat at Harlyn this morning but you have to be patient; two to three foot sets are cruising into the bay Avery ten minutes or so and the better waves in those sets are screaming across the bay with some style.
It doesn’t have the oomph or size of the other side but it looks fun and might be an easier alternative for those half-term stragglers looking for a family surf session. Or if you just can’t be doing with the paddling over there!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 1st November 2018
A light north westerly breeze is likely to frustrate us today, that breeze being strong enough to slop and bump the three to four foot swell.
Otherwise it should be okay today, not the very best but certainly okay.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those cold offshores are likely to continue well into the start of this week, a slower but still very chilly north easterly wind frustrating us by providing ultra clean conditions for the all but flat surf.
Monday is likely to be tiny at best, sunny and bright and cheery but with only tiny little immaculately shaped waves.
We might just enjoy some more rideable surf by Tuesday but still only in the foot or two range and then only if we’re lucky. All the time the wind, what little there is of it, remains offshore from the north east, only gradually drifting to the south east through Wednesday.
And so it’s likely to be midweek before we see a change, the wind switching to the south west overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday morning bringing milder air our way and also supporting a new swell as it arrives.
So the back half of the week will offer some bigger but choppier surf at our main breaks with smaller but neater little waves managing to get around to Harlyn.
And then the weekend is starting to look big, real big!
But that is a long way off yet!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
