At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A gusting nor’ wester is blowing in the start of a new term for most of the local schools this morning, the occasional squally rain shower drenching those without a coat but the sky mostly bright and cheery.
Three to four feet of broken and windswept swell lines are being bullied and pushed into the bay by that wind, not really attracting much interest from anyone interested in surfing but probably just a little more fun than you’d hope for once you’re in.
The south coast might be worth a wander if you’re over that way but I don’t know if it’s worth a special trip?
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
The wind is screeching into Harlyn too this morning, a keen fisherman is wresting on the surfline, the only one to stray onto the otherwise deserted beach.
There’s three feet or so of completely windtorn and chopped out junk surf stumbling onto the sand but not really enough to deserve any interest.
Although (I know I’m always saying it!) Harlyn can be real fun when the wind is screaming onshore!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 5th September 2019
Ah, we can expect more north westerly winds to chop and slice the already weak and windswept little swells that will be bouncing our way today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We will be embracing autumn meteorologically as well as figuratively this week, the wind gusting onshore all week long and probably well into next week too.
Starting out from north west, that wind should lighten through Monday morning and settle more from the west, at least allowing conditions to be just a little cleaner.
But combined with only a small and localised little windswells we are probably not going to be getting too excited by any of it with some small and weak, choppy little waves to surf at best.
That wind is likely to strengthen through Tuesday hopefully pushing a little more swell our way by the evening, maybe just enough to fire up Harlyn.
But whatever swell might have built up for midweek it is likely that it will be tattered and torn by those hard gusting north westerly winds.
And they will stay with us all the way through the back half of the week too, the weather eventually deteriorating as we end the week.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
