At 5.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 feet
The sky is so heavy this morning it’s tempting to duck slightly as you’re walking across the bay. I suspect that we might see a deluge or two today and maybe with a little thunder and lighting?
But equally there’s some brightness over the moors and that should spread our way eventually.
In the meantime that steady northerly breeze is slopping and messing the two feet of weak, rolling surf as it tumbles into the bay. We do seem to have missed the ‘heatwave’ – I don’t know whether that’s a good thing?
I do know that we could do with some surf soon, these summer doldrums are definitely making themselves a little too comfortable!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A canopy of dullness is shrouding Harlyn this morning, the breeze whispering onshore and chopping the otherwise flat ocean surface. That golden sunrise behind the valley might show some promise for later but right now the threat of a heavy, heavy downpour is winning.
And there’s no surf, no surf at all, not here, not today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:23 (2.1m) High Tide: 10:08 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 11th August 2020
Another grey day waits, that same northerly wind maybe showing more north westerly but still onshore everywhere and still cooling temperatures.
A foot or two of onshore junked, weak and hesitant surf is as much as we can hope for today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Northerly breezes are likely to continue to tumble and crumble a small and fairly weak little swell throughout this coming week, not really allowing the surf to be any better than a cruisy summer affair.
Mixed weather is going to unsettle our summertime visitors too, with those marauding showers keeping everyone on their toes but with enough brighter spells to make it worthwhile too.
So, those mid-length cruisers, longboards and cheaters are going to be the boards of choice again this week, anything with enough float and stability to buoy you through the flats.
But there will be enough surf and enough weather to keep most of us fairly happy and occupied, surfing those long summer days away and cruising at the beach.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
