At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
There’s a thick marine layer of murk and mist and fog clinging to the bays this morning but patches of brightness are there to raise hope of something drier and brighter soon. Although it’s not unpleasant as it is, the air temperature is mid teens and the air is still, the muffled sound of sea birds drifting through the mist.
The surf is still junk though with barely a couple of feet of sloppy and weak looking little waves slowly wandering across the sand looking for somewhere to break.
The breeze is light but it is still onshore and still strong enough to ruffle and bump and slop those little waves!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The surf is pretty flat at Harlyn this morning with maybe a foot of crumbly and sloppy little wash stumbling through that early morning mist and murk.
It is very atmospheric with that mist highlighting the deep blues of the sea against the golden sheen of the sand.
The sun should eventually shuffle through and that will make it all look very different soon enough but right now it is very Daphne Du.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:48 (2.6m) High Tide: 12:05 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 4th October 2018
Light southerly breezes, hopefully twitching south easterly should smooth the small but big enough surf today, the sun eventually putting in an appearance too.
It could end up being one of those sweet early autumn/end of summer days of gliding small but fun little swells.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a blustery start to the week with onshore and dreary weather settling in on Tuesday, conditions should improve a lot by midweek.
Calm breezes are forecast from midweek, gradually easing offshore for a while through the back half of the week but with only small swells. So from Wednesday on we can expect to be surfing smaller but prettily shaped little surf, brightened up by some cheery sunshine.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
