At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 foot
The thermometer is reading 20 deg C already on a thick and heavy, overcast summer’s day. So far we have escaped the watery deluge promised by the forecasters and suffered so badly further down the county last night but that sky is still threatening – I wouldn’t be surprised if we enjoyed a little downpour or two yet!
In the meantime the surf has dropped away completely with barely a foot of shimmering glass peaks teasing their way onto the sandbars. Those tiny little waves are gorgeous but so very tiny.
The wind is likely to pick up to a steady blow through midday, mainly from the south west but wobbling between north westerly and southerly as we go along.
So the waves should get just a bit bigger with help from that wind but, of course, we will lose these beautiful glassy conditions!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
The sea is absolutely flat around here this morning, a beautiful turquoise mirror of flatness, smooth all the way to the horizon.
It’s a great place to SUP today but you’re not going to find any waves to ride!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 20th July 2017
We should be enjoying three to four feet of rolling swell all day long today, the westerly wind putting some slop and chop into those hard breaking waves but maybe providing cleaner conditions at one or two of those more sheltered spots.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
A day or two of small but fun and clean little surf should start the week nicely, the weather bright enough for spells but not quite the settled gorgeousness of a couple of weeks ago.
So Monday will have a decent couple of feet and bigger of peeling and peaking little waves at pretty much all of our favourite surf breaks scattered along the coast, Tuesday continuing the theme but with that wind strengthening, maybe a little too much by the afternoon.
And watch out for those storm clouds as temperatures rise, causing a lot of overheating!
By midweek the wind will have reverted back to south westerly, blowing in plenty of small and broken up windswell but also cleaning up some of those sheltered more northerly spots, if those waves are blown in and big enough!
So a mixed week of summer awaits with some big surf promised for the end of the week, those winds controlling the wheres and whens, as always!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
