Constantine (1*): 2 feet
at 6.20 a.m:
It’s another cold and blowy and uncomfortable morning again this morning, more winter than summer for sure but it has come good each day this last week and it should do again today. It might be early afternoon though before we see that longed for, warming sunshine.
The wind however is likely to continue to blow!
Right now the wind is gusting in from the west sou’ west, shaking the hedgerows and blowing swell-like lines on the fields while chopping, slopping and destroying the two feet or so of weak looking surf in the bay. The surf should build through the day and quite quickly too but it is going to remain wind chopped and messy with this wind blowing.
The wind is forecast to slip to the north west by this afternoon, the sky brightening eventually but the wind feeling cold as it blows onshore all along this coastline.
We might just get a more worthwhile surf in at Harlyn if the surf builds enough before the wind switches.
let’s have a look-see over there….
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It is pretty tiny here right now, well, flat really.
There are little six-inch teasers jumping up off the Rock, walling up before spinning off to shore and that could be a sign of better things to come!
The wind is strong and offshore here right now and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a foot or two of windswept surf pushing through befoer the wind goes north westerly (onshore) this afternoon.
It’s not going to be great but give it an hour or two and we might just get to surf on a blustery knee to hip high and hollow little surf before the wind ruins it completely!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Saturday 30th May 2015
West going south westerly winds should push up some swell today, more of that localised and weaker type of close-fetch stuff but bigger than it has been for a little while.
Harlan looks favourite for some three foolish surf in a brisk offshore wind.
Yep, a fairly typical, blustery and maybe showery day at Harlyn is waiting for us!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Onshore winds are likely to continue to plague us as this holiday week winds down.
Those north westerly winds are sliding across the bays bringing cold air to our shores, the showers stinging in that wind too.
The surf isn’t likely to be all that either, a couple of feet of sloppy and choppy stuff for most of the time, maybe getting up to three or occasionally four feet through the weekend.
The wind could just back to the south west through Saturday afternoon, only for a while but at least then Harlyn will have the opportunity to improve – if there’s enough power in the swell to push it all the way around the headland!
There should be some small but clean surf there through Saturday afternoon though, small but cleaner and smarter.
Other than that it’s likely to be more mixed up and sloppy stuff to surf on, the sun shining for a lot of the time but the air feeling chill in this north westerly wind.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
