At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet.
It’s a grey day!
A thick, wet mizzle is cutting visibility while cloaking the view in that damp autumn greyness.
The surf is rolling in at a thick and bumpy three feet or occasionally just a bit bigger, all just a little crumbly in the very light southerly breeze but keeping its lined up shape and throwing some peaks here and there.
The rain and dullness are quite cosy while there is no wind but I guess that might change soon enough, although maybe not today.
So, a more normal autumnal day after all that lovely sunshine and clean surf but mild and cosy with enough surf to keep the stoke alive!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet.
There’s a couple of feet or so of clean and smart, sharp little waves snapping into the bay through the murk and gloom of this mild autumn morning.
The mizzle and murk are giving the impression that they have settled in for the day but they should clear way through by this afternoon allowing at least some brightness through. And with the breeze set to stay from the south, twitching more south westerly as the day goes on, conditions should stay tempting here all day long.
Small but very user friendly surf awaits!

Surf Forecast for Bonfire Night, Thursday 5th November 2015
Smaller surf is on the cards for this Bonfire Night with only a couple of feet of broken swell expected and all a little less powerful than we have been enjoying recently. The wind is forecast to continue to blow onshore, southerly going south westerly and so at least mild wind, if a little damp too.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
With the wind swinging onshore through midweek the weather is going to change!
But those winds should stay light, Wednesday showing a still decent three foot swell being gently blown in by light onshores.
Those south westerly breezes are going to make for slightly crumblier conditions at the main breaks, the sheltered spots continuing to be clean and sharp.
And that is likely to be the way of it for the rest of the week; light onshores putting a bump on the three feet or so of swell as it washes in to the main bays but continuing to blow offshore at breaks like Harlyn.
So, small and clean surf versus bigger but bumpier!?
It will soon be time to reach for a winter wetsuit but, so far, the better summer weight wetsuits are doing fine!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
