At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A chilly breeze is fussing its way into the bays this morning, a distinct feeling of autumn to start this long holiday weekend.
But the sky is brightening quickly and although the surf is small and pretty junky it is rideable and probably more fun than you would expect if you manage to get yourself in!
In the meantime, the weekend is stretching ahead, the forecast is okay, the kids are back to school next week, so kick off your shoes, feel the sand in your toes, the salt in your hair and enjoy!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is throwing a bit of a moody one this morning with dark shadows stretching themselves in the chill north westerly onshore wind.
But the sun is muscling its way down the valley and the air is gradually warming. The bay will be back to its welcoming self soon enough, once it has shaken off the late summer hang-over in favour of embracing an early autumn chill.
The surf is tiny and onshore so it’s the other side for a choppy glide today but otherwise it should eventually be another relaxing day at Harlyn!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 29th August 2020
A north, north easterly breeze will be grooming the small waves into something better looking than they might actually be at our favourite surf breaks today.
A foot or hopefully two of almost offshore hollowed and peeling little waves should be zipping across the sand beneath enough sunshine to keep most of our visitors happy.
Surf Conditions for the Bank Holiday Weekend
We might just get away with an enjoyably pleasant bank holiday weekend this weekend with some okay weather mixed with almost offshore breezes to manicure the small but very rideable little surf.
The breeze is going to be from the north, hopefully north easterly for most of the time, maybe a little chillier than we’d like but also helping to smarten and smooth a fun little two to three foot swell.
Saturday might be more side shore than offshore but the surf should still be clean enough and bright enough to be pleasantly enjoyable, while Sunday is likely to be a little smaller but maybe a lot cleaner.
Monday is likely to be really small but with a more southerly south easterly breeze to warm things up and smooth out that tiny surf.
So, all in all we can expect a pleasant enough weekend for the grand finale to a slightly surreal season.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
