At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 feet
A tight little low pressure system is bringing a breezy Autumn feel to this damp and chilly, broody morning.
The wind is blowing in from the south west, a fresh blow making a mess of the three to four feet of chopped out and wintery looking surf.
There’s a lot of water moving around the bay with those lumpy waves all hesitating and indecisive, eventually just stumbling onto the beach.
Let’s have look at Harlyn…….
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of offshore wind sculpted and hollow waves are crashing ashore here this morning!
Occasional bigger sets are standing tall in front of The Rock before spinning to the sand, some closing out, the odd one offering a ride of joy.
Yep, it looks like a day of offshore fun in churning little barrels at Harlyn, those waves getting snappier at low tide, becoming a little thicker at high.
But still offering a whole heap of smackdown fun!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:31 (1.4m) High Tide: 16:28 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 22nd July 2017
That tight spinning low pressure system will continue to produce hard blowing sou’ westerly going westerly winds, blowing in a thick and rolling five to six feet of windswept swell.
A mean breaking four foot Harlyn should wake us up in the morning, gradually becoming a bit thicker and sloppier as the day goes on.
But there should be reeling barrels aplenty in amongst the scores of sand dredging close-outs!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Mainly onshore winds and more mixed weather are going to feature this weekend, that same windblown and rolling three to five foot swell pushing into the bays and coves all along the coast well into Saturday.
The wind is probably going to become too westerly to allow Harlyn to be really good later on but it should start out at about four feet, offshore and hollow on Saturday morning becoming three feet and just about okay through Saturday afternoon, ending up all a bit crumbly and sloppy in the evening rain showers.
The surf is likely to be smaller by Sunday, that wind maybe starting the day in a kinder way for a moment, offshore for an hour or two at the main surf breaks early on but quickly settling westerly again.
So, a mixed weekend of just about okay surf and just about okay weather awaits!
The water is warm and the holidays are starting so have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
