At 8.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
The wind is blowing again this morning, a squally westerly blustering into the bays and churning the slightly smaller surf into a mixed up mess of broken water.
Four or five feet of chopped out and messed up, grey and wintery looking waves are stumbling and tumbling onto the beaches but there’s not much in amongst it all that’s worth riding!
Harlyn (1*): 3 feet
The westerly wind seems to have just a little north in it making the surf bumpy and choppy, even at Harlyn this morning.
Three feet or so of uneven and patchy, hesitant surf is mainly closing out as the tide reaches for low, those reluctant lumps of water waiting until the last minute to explode onto the sand.
It could be fun later on but it’s going to be bumpy and lumpy fun at best!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:50 (2.5m) High Tide: 15:45 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 10th October 2019
And the wind blows on!
Hopefully though that westerly wind should gradually ease its way more to the south, at least allowing Harlyn to shape up a bit and sharpen those waves into something a little more appealing.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gusting and hard blowing onshore winds are going to push our way all week long, Autumn tightening its grasp as it shakes the leaves from hedgerows and trees.
We should be seeing the first of some big, winter swells pushing into the bays this week, those winds just blasting those big breaking waves across our main surf breaks.
Our sheltered breaks will be the places to go this week, searching out those more tucked away spots, those places that need a big swell to get anything happening. So estuaries and headlands and corners of creeks will be the spots to aim for, as well as those universally known spots too like Harlyn or Western or maybe a road trip further afield.
So, a week of heavy paddling, big drops, loads of blustery squalls but with those bright and cheery bits in-between too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
