It’s a moody and broody one this morning, that heavy sky full of leaden cloud, the sea reflecting grey.
The wind is still onshore, still north nor’ westerly, still with that bite in it. But it might be a touch lighter than yesterday, maybe.
The surf is junk, a foot or maybe two of mixed up, choppy and wishy washy, onshore surf is washing into the bay, the north aspect of that wind keeping the odd left-hander open for just a bit longer.
I suspect that we might enjoy the odd power shower this morning before it all brightens up and that shimmering sunshine should coincide with the tide turning, making it all look a little cheerier if nothing else!

Harlyn (1*):  1 to 2 feet

It’s pretty tiny around here again this morning, that wind pushing a foot or so of windslop into the bay but not much else.
It is likely to build just a little on this afternoon’s tide and of course it should look a little better in the sunshine too but it’s not going to be all that. The other side is likely to be the place to be today!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  10:32  (1.7m)           High Tide:  16:28  (6.8m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 11th July 2014

There’s not much change expected today; the same north westerly wind is blowing steadily, there’s plenty of bright weather out there to cover us and there’s not much in the way of real swell!
So there’s more choppy and sloppy surf to be ridden, a couple of feet at the main surf breaks, a foot or so elsewhere.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

North westerly (onshore) winds are set to plague us for the rest of this week, those chill and blustery winds doing little to help the swell and doing less to help shape those waves that reach our beaches.
Two low pressure systems are lining up alongside each other to bring those winds down over us with a high pressure system out to the south west, occupying that spot where a swell generator could be parked.
So it’s not looking great for surf, not for a little while!
The weather, on the other hand, is looking bright and mainly dry, that same north westerly wind being an annoyance for sunbathers, justifying the lugging of those windbreaks all the way to the beach!
There should be some small and sloppy surf to ride but it is likely to be only small and quite choppy!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
