At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
A breezy and damp morning is marking what is the end of the school year for a lot of kids today with a brisk sou’ westerly wind whistling into the bay emptying plenty of rain on the way.
The three feet or so of slow moving and lazy looking swell is being junked and bumped by that onshore wind too, producing a couple to three feet of unpredictable and bouncy surf.
Yep, it’s a grey, breezy and wet but mild kind of a day and it might be this evening before it brightens up.
But it will, eventually!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The wind is whistling almost offshore just before high tide at Harlyn this morning and so those little waves that are managing to travel all the way around the headland to find their way to the beach are looking a little weak and powerless. Barely a foot of fat and lazy little waves are trundling onto the shorebreak before trickling across the sand.
But the dropping tide should sharpen it all up while the swell should be pushed up by those sou’ westers blowing through the day. Yep, it should all improve a whole lot through today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:07 (1.5m) High Tide: 20:04 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 20th July 2019
Blustery and occasionally damp south westerly winds will continue to push a load of lumpy windswell our way, hopefully enough to get a couple to three feet of fun surf into Harlyn. The wind there should be offshore for most of the day, fresh and squally maybe to start with, gradually easing up by evening.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Breezy conditions are going to take us into this weekend, pushing some bumpy and mixed up localised windswell our way along with some more mixed weather than we have seen for a little while.
Four feet or so of thick and rolling swell will be chopped and slopped at our main surf breaks as we go into the weekend, Harlyn offering a much smaller but also much cleaner option but maybe not getting much bigger than a foot or two, especially on the dropping tide.
But that wind should ease through the weekend, staying onshore at the west facing surf breaks but easing to barely a breeze by Sunday afternoon. We should see some more settled sunshine as we go through the weekend too.
And then for those of you staying into Monday, offshores should kick in to groom a nice couple of feet or os of sunlit and peeling surf.
A weekend of three halves maybe, if you have the time!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
