At 6:15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Wide blue stretches are opening up the otherwise silver veil of thin white cloud this morning, promising another fine and dandy, pleasant summer’s day ahead.
A fresh and refreshing breeze whispering in from the south west is just bumping and folding a thick and meaty four to six feet of rolling swell giving it all a thick and wintery look.
It will be a slog of a paddle here today, rewarded only by short and hollow drop-ins followed but those flat sections before the whole ocean folds over in front. Well, that’s the mind-surfing version anyway, reality is probably more of a squat and tumble kind of thing!
Either way there are plenty of waves out there with the promise of another bright and cheery day ahead!
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
Harlyn is where most of the action will be today!
That breeze is blowing straight offshore to meet those watery walls of deep blue glass head on, holding back those fast breaking and hollow waves until the last possible moment before they tumble and crash into the shallows.
The sets are a distance apart, that in-between flatness confusing the short stop surf checkers on the bridge, solid lumps pitching through just as they leave.
Three feet plus of hollow and glassy waves are rewarding those with the patience to wait, closing out a lot at low tide but improving throughout the morning.
Yep, it’s all looking good for a fun day of surf at Harlyn!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 27th July 2019
Light north westerly breezes are going to keep temperatures to a more refreshing level for our visitors escaping the stifling warmth of up country this weekend but the two to three feet of swell is going to be chopped and slopped as a result.
Early morning and late evening are going to see the best of it but there should be sloppy junk surf at most of the breaks all day long.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Low pressure is nudging up against Ireland this weekend, having drawn those warm breezes up from the continent for the last few days and now spinning them around on us as it eases its way to the north, sending a cooler north westerly wind for the weekend.
Friday’s bigger swells will soon ease away reducing to three to four feet or so by Saturday, a couple to three feet by Sunday.
The warm summer weather is going to make the otherwise junky surf that bit more enticing this weekend, the odd rain shower of Saturday not lasting too long and soon being replaced by enough brightness for most.
And then next week looks like it’s going to start out with some fresher winds blowing in from the south west, at least allowing Harlyn to have some shape, getting bigger through the afternoon.
So a mixed weekend after the lovely weather of last week but with plenty of waves to slide around on, maybe not perfect but fun enough!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
