At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 5 feet
A fresh southerly wind is breezing its way across the bay this morning, not quite cleaning the deceptively decent sized surf.
Four feet and bigger of grey and still quite mushy surf is bumping along, bouncing onto the low tide hardened sand, the sky that pale silver, typical of this time of year.
This wind could strengthen, which will help strengthen the swell but won’t do much for the shape of the actual surf on this side of the headland.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple of feet of snappy little surf is whipcracking across low tide Harlyn Bay this morning, the occasional bigger set making you wait for them.
The breeze is straight offshore, a blustering southerly which is smoothing the faces of those curving and hollowing little waves.
It should get a little bit bigger and it should get quite a bit better as the tide bounces in through the morning.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:47 (2.5m) High Tide: 13:06 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 25th November 2020
A cold northerly wind is likely to be messing up the three foot swell today, that blustery breeze trying hard to twitch its way just that degree or two to the east which would make. Huge difference to the shape of the surf.
Once the gloom and muzzle of a late November morning have edged away we should be able to enjoy some wintery sunshine later on too.
So it could all come good eventually!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The waves and weather are likely to be a little lacklustre as we go into this week, smoothing and improving as we go along.
After a fairly mild start to the week it is going to feel noticeably colder as a northerly wind blows cold air down the coast through midweek.
That same wind is likely to make for bumpy surf conditions but is likely to eventually ease its way more easterly and that is offshore at most of our surf breaks locally.
Given a continuing swell rippling out from a fairly tight little low pressure system out in the Atlantic, we could be enjoying some very nice surf conditions well into the weekend and beyond!
And as high pressure settles over us the weather should brighten once those heavy marine layers of murk and mizzle have slipped away.
So, a good period of half decent surf along with some very pleasant weather should see us out of this lockdown period in some style.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
