At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
Another murky, messy and mizzly old day is blustering our way.
The wind is warm and shuffling in from the south sou’ west, pushing the dark cloud banks into each other and spraying wetness across the bay.
The surf isn’t all that either; a couple of feet of lazy, rain sprayed and windswept greyness, stumbling into lumpy peaks which are hesitantly breaking randomly across the beach.
We can only hope that the wind eases and the sky brightens but that is not what most of the forecasts are showing!
So, how’s your junk surfing routine going, need a bit of sharpening? It’s going to be a good day to practice those slashes!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It is tiny here again today, a foot (at most) of sheet glass and curling little snappy one are slapping the beach every now and again.
It might improve a little with the tide and it will be great for the surf schools and suchlike and if you’re lucky you might just catch a longboard one or two but it’s probably going to be the other side for some junk surf shralping today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:11 (2.0m) High Tide: 09:52 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 22nd August 2015
The wind should be lighter and the swell should open out a little today, allowing some smoother lumps to surf on at our main breaks.
But it is still likely to be a little erratic and not that clean either.
We might see some brighter and drier weather here and there though, if only for moments at a time!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Yet another low pressure system is cruising across the upper parts of the UK, spinning its rain and wind our way but not that much in the way of waves.
There’s likely to be three feet of wobbly and windblown surf at our main surf breaks for most of the rest of the week and into the weekend. But whether the surf will be big enough to get all the way around and into Harlyn, we’ll have to wait and see.
Saturday is likely to be very calm with light breezes flicking back and fore with the tide. We might be enjoying some (relatively) clean and fun surf in the morning at our preferred breaks before the onshore sea breezes kick in through early afternoon.
Saturday looks like a south westerly wind day, a three to four foot swell being pushed our way by that gusting wind. We can only hope that that swell is strong enough to find its way around the headland and back into Harlyn. If it does that could be fun, only small but clean and fun.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
