A super bright sunburst dawn is spreading its warmth across a coast of silver this morning, a leaden cloud covered sky contrasting the shimmering sand, the grey sea merging the two.
And the surf is pumping!
Three to four to five foot surf is marching in, the air still, a slight breath of offshore breeze whispering into the waves faces. And those waves are filing in in sets. The biggest waves of the biggest sets being a drop-in and a half, a tall man standing in height, plus just a little bit for those who don’t like feet and inches.
And every forecast on the wide world web are showing that double-digit wave period swell to roll our way all day long while that light, light offshore breeze gently shapes and holds those peeling waves to perfection.
We should even see some very pleasant, warming sunshine too.
Have a very good day!

Harlyn (1*):  1 to 2 feet

It’s not that good around here this morning, which is a bit of a surprise.
That barely existent breath of a breeze must be just north easterly, allowing a crumbly wobble to bump what little surf is managing to weakly slide around here this morning. It is a good couple of hours after low tide but it is still very low, giving the idea that it might improve with this morning’s tide.
But the surf is so good over the headland, that is the place to aim for.
But it might be worth keeping a little eye on here for later if you’re a Harlyn fan, the breeze is likely to clean up as we go along and that swell could swing in a little more with the tide.

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  17:08  (2.3m)            High Tide:  10:43  (6.1m)

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 3rd September 2014

It’s looking promising again for a sun filled day of pleasant surf.
Although smaller than Monday, the surf should still be good, a decent couple to three feet of curling and looping stuff, the breeze light and offshore, the sky clear and bright.
Enjoy.

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

As Autumn gradually starts to caress our golden beaches and turquoise bays, the feel of summer might just revisit for a few days.
Tuesday is likely to be another slow starter, a little overcast but calm and peaceful to start the day, the breeze offshore and the surf pumping in. And that should last throughout the day.
And then the delicate dance of wind and swell will take us through the rest of the entire week all under clear and bright, sunshiny skies.
The swell is likely to weaken to a still very decent couple of feet by midweek, the breeze staying offshore and folding those waves into hollow little things.
And that looks to be the way of it for a good while! A steady, rolling swell, light offshores and plenty of sunshine. Any holiday time left?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
