At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A fine veil of mizzle and mist is filling the air this morning as a grey sky rolls in from the Atlantic. But that superfine dampness is almost completely evaporating before hitting the parched and thirsty ground while patches of brightness are already peeping through the patchwork sky.
It does feel as though we could do with a downpour or two though, the sultry air an already warm 20 deg C at 6 a.m..
And there’s a fun looking couple of feet of surf trickling into the bay as well this morning!
The couple to maybe almost three feet of lazy surf is looking a little ruffled and bumpy but it is bigger than it has been for a few weeks and it does have some direction to it all, so that will do very nicely!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
A foot or so of lightly ruffled and crumbly little surf is peaking just off the high tide bank at Harlyn this morning, the south westerly breeze trying to help those little waves to stand taller than they are before crumbling their way ashore.
Those little waves are barely rideable but might just be worth a quick longboard glide or two if Harlyn is your fave wave or if you can’t get around to the more swell exposed breaks.

Surf Forecast for Saturday 28th July 2018
A fresher wind than we have felt for a while could blow in today, a brisk west sou’ westerly bringing bigger waves and the obvious chance of a shower or three.
It will be nice to see some bigger surf, even if it is bumpy and lumpy at our favourite surf breaks.
But Harlyn might have something cleaner, even if it is only small?!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A low front is likely to push our way as we go into this weekend, that calm and settled bright and sunny weather finally giving way to something a little more unsettled, a little more as expected for the summer holidays maybe?!
But the surf should roar into life and it’s not all bad news; yes, there will be the threat of marauding showers and the temperatures are likely to ease back several degrees but there should still be enough brightness to keep most beachgoers happy and the surf should be pounding in too!
So Saturday is going to see three to four feet and bigger of onshore wind chopped surf, all blown around by a brisk westerly wind. That wind will keep any showers moving along though, not allowing them time to settle for too long.
And with that growing swell and west wind, Harlyn should wake up and show us that we can get some fun surf there, even in summer.
Three feet of crunchy, folding waves are likely to be crashing onto the sand as the Spring tide rushes in through the afternoon.
By Sunday the surf should be grinding its way onto our coast, four to five feet of windblown and angry waves should be pounding ashore all day long.
The wind should ease to the south west, making Harlyn the ‘go-to’ spot locally.
Three to four feet of board snapping fun should be had here today, especially on the afternoon tide again!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
