It’s a grim ‘un today!
The wind is rattling into the bay this morning through the drizzly, mizzly, damp and dreary air, a cold and onshore, south westerly wind making a mess of the five feet or so of junked out and messed up surf.
Visibility is limited because of that murk but then there’s not that much to see in the way of surf anyway!
No, let’s give here a miss today, it is likely to brighten up but not for a little while.  In the meantime though, Harlyn might just be worth the trek;

Harlyn (3*):  2 to 3 feet

It is just as murky and just as miserable but the surf is cleaner and sharper and much more enticing.
There’s a couple to three feet of smooth and glassy walled, hollow, grinding waves washing through. The sets could be a tad bigger but they are a long way apart.
With the tide on the rise and this wind gusting through, Harlyn is the place today!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 12th May 2015

The swell is likely to continue rolling our way throughout the day supported by a fresh westerly wind. It should be brighter and nicer today but it is still going to be a windy kind of surf.
We can expect three feet of sloppy Harlyn surf today under some brighter skies.

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

Westerly going south westerly winds are going to start the week again with a new swell purring into the bays.
And it looks to be a well travelled and solid enough, building swell through Monday, big enough to light up Harlyn with some clean and barreling three foot surf, getting just a bit bigger towards high tide.
And that’s the way of it through Tuesday as well, the wind easing in strength a little but twitching just that bit further westerly too.
Midweek might just show some cleaner conditions with easterly winds being forecast to lightly blow on Wednesday, offshore against a dropping but still okay little swell.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
