At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 5 feet.
A gusting westerly wind is keeping the air fresh this morning as a bumpy four feet of grey surf rolls into the bay this morning, the tide just getting too high to allow it to break with much conviction.
There’s a threat of heavy rain in those dark cloud banks and that is reflected in the dark and brooding swell but there are also wide spreads of brighter stuff all around us too, so we should be enjoying at least some sunshine today as well as those heavy downpours.
So a mixed old day lies ahead but there should be plenty of surf to ride and eventually enough sunshine to attract you down to the beach.
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
A half decent looking two to three feet of ruffled and crumbly looking surf is tumbling onto that high tide bank at Harlyn this morning, one guy out on a longboard and enjoying a couple of early morning set waves.
The tide is getting too high and will stay that way for a couple of hours so there’s no need to rush down but as soon as that quite big tide eases its way out then we should see some very decent and fun surf.
A summer’s day of three foot plus surf at Harlyn lies waiting!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:00 (0.5m) High Tide: 19:55 (7.8m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 13th August 2108
A brighter and sunnier day should greet us today with an onshore westerly wind driving in three feet or so of lumpy and bumpy swell.
That wind will keep temperatures down to a fresher level than they had been the last month or two but it should still be a pleasant enough day with enough surf to keep most of us happy, Harlyn being smaller but cleaner, Constantine having some bigger, fun ones!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to blow all week long, those brisk westerlies backing south westerly through midweek before sliding more north westerly for the end of the week.
And that same lumpy and bumpy, mainly wind driven swell should drive our way all week long, reaching four to five feet here and there, dropping to two to three feet for periods as well.
With plenty of brighter stretches this week as well as the odd shower, it’s looking like a pleasant enough week weatherwise with enough surf to suit most too with Harlyn offering smaller but cleaner and more manageable conditions for the school holiday groms and this side offering some big and bumpy drops if you’d prefer!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
