At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s a wee bit chilly out there this morning, a brisk west nor’ westerly wind keeping air temperatures down while the leaden sky presses down too.
The surf is pretty junky again too.
A couple to maybe three feet of fairly weak looking waves are being shepherded reluctantly ashore by the blustery onshore wind. The waves are breaking where they can but with not much shape to them.
Everything should improve through the morning and all it would take is a little brightness, a little focus and a little warmth to make it all that bit more tempting.
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A couple of feet or so of unsure little waves are fumbling their way to the sand here this morning with maybe @gracias_de_nada out there grabbing a couple of early ones?
Give it a few hours and it will still be only small but might just be more desirable!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:34 (1.3m) High Tide: 17:26 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 5th October 2017
Northerly winds are likely to keep the temperatures low again today, while not helping the surf much either! But then the breeze might just shift that degree or two more easterly and that would then be offshore. So there is a chance, just a chance though, that the shape of those still small waves might just improve a lot through mid morning.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Onshore winds aren’t going to help the thick, rolling swell that is likely to wash our bays and coves at the start of this week.
Staring out from the west, the wind will soon settle to its recently preferred north westerly direction. And that is onshore at all of our local surfbreaks.
So those bigger swells that will start our week are going to lose their appeal at most of the breaks around here, making a little hunting expedition our best hope for finding something cleaner and sharper to surf.
Northerly winds are going to frustrate for a couple of days, the wind swinging southerly through midweek but only staying there for hours rather than days.
So a mixed up and chopped and slopped kind of week is waiting, with half decent waves being the reward for those with the time and desire to head out on the hunt for something better or the usual onshore mess for the rest!
So, booked those ‘winter away’ tickets yet?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
