A bright enough but fairly chilly morning is unfolding itself around us this morning, the wind steadily rasping in from the north west, slopping the surf as it chills the beach.
There’s a couple to three feet of onshore blown surf stumbling into the bay, a frothy, crumbly little peak folding itself into the shore dump an hour or two ahead of high tide.
But it’s not all that great, it’s okay but not great.
The weather is looking just okay too, a bit breezy, a little chilly but bright enough in between those dark cloud packs. It should improve as we go along though!

Harlyn (1*):  1 foot

There’s a foot or two of crumbly surf struggling in to the bay here today, it’s all bit hesitant and a bit crumbly and frothy, that wind pushing in onshore.
But, as always, it is still looking fairly attractive, that dark turquoise sea standing out in front of the dark cloud background.
The other side is going to be the better bet for a surf though, we will probably lose any size that there is as the tide drops out and it’s not that big to start with!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 19th September 2015

There is a high pressure system taking control of the weather today and so the wind should be calm and gentle. It was looking like a light offshore but I think that it might end up being a very light north westerly breeze (onshore) for most of the day.
So we should be able to enjoy a foot or two of probably clean and glassy surf under bright and clear skies throughout the day!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

That little area of low pressure that you can see on the pressure chart above is shuffling up the north eastern side of the atlantic and so should slingshot a little bit of swell our way for the weekend!
And looking at that same chart, it does look like a small area of high pressure might just stall over us during the weekend too.
So, put all that together and you have to think that things are looking promising for a pleasant enough and quite surfy weekend!
A couple to three feet and glassy and sunny through Saturday, followed by a decent three feet maybe offshore and sunny Sunday!
And about time too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
