It’s about as wet and windy and thoroughly miserable a start to the day as you’re likely to experience!
And yet, the bay still manages to maintain some sort of allure, a sodden and windswept charm, a dull and dreary beauty all of its own.
The surf is small, a foot, very occasionally a foot and a half but the offshore wind is helping those waves to turn themselves inside out making it look more appealing than it might be.
And the forecast is for more rain, more wind, more dullness and a lot of darkness.
But apart from that…..

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

The surf is flat here this morning, absolutely flat. A very occasional mini-streak of whitewater is momentarily slashing the otherwise uniform greyness of a rain sodden beach in the half light of a high summer morning but there are no waves breaking here today!
At least the other side has some little waves this morning, it might be worth a longboard glide over there in the rain and murk!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 25th July 2015

At least it should be brighter today and drier too!
But the surf is likely to be a little lacklustre, a foot or two of close-fetch, onshore and sloppy stuff is the best that we can expect today!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

The end of the week is likely to be a continuance of the last how long!
The small surf might go flat for a while later on Friday in those pleasantly wave-shaping offshore winds but by Saturday the wind will have swung back to onshore, a north westerly wind chopping up the two feet of lazy, short period surf in some pleasant sunshine.
There should be more swell growing through Sunday, a brisk south westerly going westerly wind pushing some rolling swell into our bays.
By the afternoon Harlyn should be showing some fun surf, probably a couple of feet and offshore over there. And by Monday the wind is likely to be back to north westerly, the swell reaching into the four to five foot size range but onshore everywhere on this coast!
It could be a day for a surftrek in search of clean conditions at some south westerly facing surf breaks!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
