At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
Another heavily overcast morning is greeting us with a brisk and steady west nor’ westerly continuing to blow our way.
And so the surf is a not very inviting three feet or so of mixed and lumpy, chopped and slopped, grey looking stuff that is washing around the bay.
But the tide is on the way in and those dark and rain filled clouds should soon pass by.
It could just be quite pleasant again by this afternoon, which always seems to make the surf better!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The surf is small at Harlyn again this morning but less disorganised than the other side.
A foot or two of crumbly and ruffled little waves are rushing onto the sand as the tide pushes in. And that tidal push should add some extra wump to the surf, just making it that little bit better than the dropping tide might allow later.
But most people are going to have fun here today, whatever equipment they choose to play with!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:45 (1.7m) High Tide: 10:25 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 18th August 2018
The wind is forecast to dip just a few degrees to the south west today and that just might make all the difference!
That same thick three foot swell will be tumbling into our bays and coves, the wind onshore at all of our favourite spots but maybe calming for an hour or two here and there, just allowing us to enjoy something a little better for moments.
But Harlyn is likely to be clean with very small but hopefully very pretty little surf to play in all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It looks like we are in for another mixed weekend of bumpy surf and steady onshores bringing some very pleasant sunny spells and, of course, some not so pleasant showers. So it likely to be pretty much a continuation of the conditions that wee have been enjoying through the end of this week.
Constantine and its neighbouring breaks are likely to be seeing that bumpy and rolling swell producing some fun three to four foot surf, a little bigger and sharper on the incoming tides getting a little fatter and lazier on the dropping tides.
Harlyn in the meantime is likely to be just lightly crumbled and bounced with some two to three feet of surf to keep those more occasional surfers happy. Again it is all likely to be just that bit bigger and better on the rising tide, becoming a little sharper and snappier but smaller on the dropping tides.
So, a weekend that should suit everyone for a moment is on the cards, one of those ‘if you don’t like the weather or surf right now, just wait half an hour and it will change’ weekends!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
