Constantine (0*): 3 feet
Another fairly typical autumn day is gradually unfolding around us this morning, that heavy downpour of earlier gradually drying out while dark clouds continue to lurk over the seaward horizon.
The land horizon is an explosion of light as the sun clambers to brighten a still and cool morning, the surf still sloppy from the last few days of onshores, three feet and bigger of tumbling and erratic waves trying to find their way ashore.
It is one of those completely quiet mornings, the whoosh of those waves washing in being the only soundtrack.
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
A foot or two of shapeless and lazy looking little surf is washing along the shoreline at Harlyn this morning, that very high low tide giving a false impression that there’s lower to go.
The breeze is forecast to ease just a little more offshore as the tide stumbles slowly in, at least offering some cleaner but still small waves to glide across.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:34 (2.7m) High Tide: 12:52 (5.7m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 7th November 2019
The wind is likely to strengthen overnight making for a gusting westerly onshore blow in the morning. But that should back off fairly quickly and we might (just might!) enjoy a superlight offshore breeze by early afternoon!
Those waves should be bumping through by then as well, we are expecting a solid six feet plus of wind bothered surf through the morning but with a chance of becoming screaming and hollow by lunchtime?
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Cold, onshore winds are going too continue to plague us as we go into this weekend, the brisk northerly blow of Friday gradually easing more north easterly as it calms through the evening. But I think that it will be too dark to enjoy the benefits of those cleaner surf conditions.
We will be enjoying a regular south westerly wind through Saturday morning, a building swell just waking Harlyn up and throwing a few little hollow ones at us.
Make the most of that though, those north westerlies will have returned by mid-afternoon to chop out the building surf.
And that’s it for Sunday, a blowy north westerly wind will chop and slop the six foot swell at all of our surfbreaks on this coast, making the trip down south an appealing idea?
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
