Surf Report for Sunday 24th August 2014

Constantine (1*): 1 foot

at 6.10 a.m.

It’s a calm and peaceful morning with a beautiful bright red sunburst dawn going on over on that horizon, while the rest of the sky is grey and silver and blue.
The wind is light, a feint breeze so far and that drifting in from the south. And so the tiny waves that are sliding to the beach are cleaner than they have been for weeks, lined up and peeling, glassy little tumblers spilling ashore. There’s a foot or so of surf, the promise of a longboard glide, those little waves peeling off the banks. The tide is on the drop right now and so it’s not at its best, things might just improve with this afternoon’s tide. Maybe.
We might sees a shower or two as the day goes on but right now it is all pretty relaxed!
Yeah, it’s okay for a Holiday Sunday.

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

It is absolutely flat around here this morning, a ripple less lake of calm stretching to the horizon.
A great place for a paddle, sitting or standing and maybe a great place to swim or run or walk but there won’t be much surfing going on, it is absolutely, smoothly flat!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  11:55  (1.5m)  High Tide:  5:52  (6.9m)

Surf Forecast for Monday 25th August 2014

Oh! We might just actually see some surf today! Some real, proper, three foot and rolling waves.
The wind is forecast to be south sou’ westerly, which is a shame for our favourite surf breaks, they will all be onshore and choppy.
But at least there will be waves to drop in on and even the sheltered spots might just have some waves later on!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

The Bank Holiday weekend traditionally ends our main holiday season, marking a return to a slower, quieter pace of life as the vast majority of visitors exit the area. This year might show a more gradual emptying, with that extra August week.
And those who do stay on might just finally see some surf! Some proper rolling Atlantic curlers, just like in the postcards!
The week is likely to start with a half decent three foot and building swell rolling in through Monday, the wind mainly onshore but south, going south westerly and so supporting that swell.
By Monday night and through Tuesday we should e enjoying a proper five to six feet plus of growling swell with the wind easing off in strength all the time. We could be surfing Harlyn properly for the first time this summer!
The swell is likely to settle down by midweek, still that rolling, onshore swell, all bumpy and grinding in at the main breaks but providing just enough maybe to provide some cleaner alternatives at the sheltered spots.
And the water is real warm too!
So wax the boards down – surf’s up!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
