At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 feet
A chilly north westerly wind is scooting across the bay this morning, shoving multi-layered, carpark grey cloudbanks around us and rattling the heavy blossomed hedgerows as we duck away from the threat of a downpour or two.
No, it’s not the most comfy morning of the summer!
And the surf is a mess too.
Three feet or so of bumpy and lumpy, uncertain waves are wandering into the bay looking for somewhere to break. The wind isn’t that strong but it is having an effect!
But don’t write it off just yet, the weather should come good by lunchtime and the wind should ease, allowing those waves to gain just a little more shape.
It could just be a different place by this afternoon!
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
A foot of wind gouged and chopped, wintery looking surf is barely bothering to veer into the bay here this morning, that north westerly wind pushing and pulling what little waves that there are.
The wind should ease but it is going to stay from the north west, while the wave size is likely to only lessen.
The other side just has the advantage today!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 15th July 2017
A milder south westerly wind should be blowing in today, making the west facing beaches a bit choppy but keeping those tiny waves that manage to get into the sheltered spots much cleaner.
As well as blowing some brighter and milder weather our way, it should also blow in a bit of extra wave size by the afternoon too. It is only going to be wnindswell but there should be some fun waves to ride for most of the day!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed weekend is waiting for us this weekend, a steady three feet of slowly building swell being lightly slopped by the return of more north westerlies through Friday, backing south westerly through Saturday and settling westerly for Sunday before going offshore as we start the week.
The weather should be fine for most of the time with some dampness expected through Sunday afternoon as a marine layer stretches over us.
So Saturday looks the most fun with an outside possibility of some very small but clean little waves to offer some choice but most people probably preferring to choose the bigger, if bumpier west facing surf breaks.
By Sunday everywhere on this coast will be enjoying onshores allowing the hyper-active to enjoy loads of air time with ramps aplenty to launch off!
And then next week is starting to look quite promising, maybe.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
