Hello Winter, my old friend!
So it seems that we have been instantly transported back to last winter and all those tedious north westerly winds that carry cold air all the way down from up there, that cold place, sending cold air.
Well, it’s not that cold but you might get the idea.
And so the surf is a mixed up mess of choppy and blown out junk surf, a blown out sea of chop and slop spreading all the way to the horizon.
Still, the water is warm and those waves might be a mess but they are rideable! One of those soft board ‘Beaters’ might be the right tool for today’s job.
That should get the groms frothing for sure!
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s cold and windy around at Harlyn this morning too!
Up to three feet of broken and junked out, sloppy surf is crashing onto the hardened sand of a very wintery looking bay, those big lumps of dark and threatening clouds promising at least a soaking or two.
It’s not great but again, there are waves and they are rideable. And Harlyn can often be loads of fun in an onshore wind – especially if the skies clear!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Saturday 25th August 2018
Lighter north westerlies are going to continue to blow our way, preventing any clean waves and keeping those air temperatures low.
The wind shouldn’t be as strong as Friday but they are probably going to be strong enough to chop out all of our local surf breaks!
We should be enjoying some crisper and clearer sunshine today though too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We can expect a chillier feel to the air as this week gradually closes and the Bank Holiday Weekend approaches.
Saturday looks to be a calm and pleasant day with light, light breezes drifting down from the north and west, the sky mainly bright and clear but with a good chance of seeing the odd shower too.
Add a couple of feet of slow and lazy surf to the mix and you have the makings of a relaxed and fun day of surfing.
By Sunday the wind is likely to have backed to the south west before going westerly again through the afternoon. It should be worth getting in for a surf and the weather should be good enough for most of the time, you might just have to choose your time.
And holiday Monday is looking promising too with light south westerlies blowing just a little more swell our way on a brighter and sunnier day.
So, all in all not a bad old Bank Holiday Weekend with enough weather and surf to keep mostly everyone happy!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
