At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
A gloomy and chilly start to the day is already giving way to something a bit brighter and lighter, a stuttering sou’ westerly wind hurrying into the bay, pushing over the already lumpy and flabby four or five feet and more of grey, wintery looking surf.
There is some surf to play in but it’s not that great.
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
A south westerly wind is gusting into the three feet or so of peaking and bowling, pitching surf at Harlyn this morning as the tide empties out towards low.
It looks like fun but that wind will probably back too far westerly through this afternoon, so you might want to get on it sooner rather than later!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:43 (1.6m) High Tide: 16:36 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 8th October 2022
A thick and lumpy five feet or so of solid groundswell is going to be lightly bumped and slopped by a frustrating breeze drifting in from the north west. That breeze might ease more westerly through the morning, at least allowing Harlyn to provide some smoother lumps to surf on!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend is promising some sunshine, plenty of swell and some swirling breezes.
The lightest of north westerly breezes is likely to take the edge off what could otherwise be some great surf at our preferred surf breaks on Saturday morning, a solid five foot swell just being lightly crumbled and bumped by that onshore breeze.
The breeze is likely to shift more westerly through midday and should allow Harlyn to shine throughout the afternoon’s pushing tide.
Although the swell is likely to drop to only a couple of feet by Sunday, the wind is forecast to back to the south, maybe the south east, straight offshore at our favourite spots.
We might see some mixed weather by the afternoon but we could just be skating across some fun little peelers on the afternoon tide.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
