Surf Report for Friday 26th August 2016

At 6.20 a.m:

Constantine (1*):  1 to 2 feet.

A glorious morning is revealing itself slowly this morning, a light, light, californian style marine layer of mist clinging to the grasslands, a pale watercolour hint of la cote du sud reflected from the bay.
So the sky is bright, the wind is light and the birdsong is almost tuneful.
Shame about the surf though!
Barely a foot or two of onshore ruffled and lazy looking wash is spilling onto the sandbars in the early morning sunshine, a weak looking mish-mash of short wave-period slop surf gambling onto the beach.
There are waves and they are rideable, especially on such a gorgeous day but the surf isn’t all that!

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat.

The beach is almost shimmering in its goldness this morning, contrasting smoothly with the sunlit depths of the deep blue sea.
The surf is flat but the place is fabulous!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 27th August 2016

A light and cheery, bright and summery day is promising itself again today, a light easterly breeze helping to shape the tiny little waves into something taller and maybe more surfable.
We are going to have to be lucky (or clever) to get the most out of today, the small neap tide taking the tidal guess out of the equation but those warping sandbars promising great little sessions if you catch them just right!
One to two feet of peeling and shimmering, sun glinting gliders are on promise today!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

Light northerly breezes are set to keep the air temperatures cooler as this week winds down with some bright and pleasant high summer sunshine putting in an appearance finally at week’s end. That breeze is likely to drift back and fore from north westerly to north easterly, onshore to offshore, teasing us with those sometimes very attractive surf conditions.
There should be a couple of feet of surf continuing to roll in through the weekend, sometimes smooth and peeling, other times a little ruffled and bumpy.
So timing is likely to be everything to get the best out of the surf again this weekend, just keep your eye on the breeze and try and slot in with the tides and you should be able to enjoy some fun surf!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
