At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Blustering winds are gusting up from the south south west this morning, those milky pale clouds only gradually giving way to something bluer as milder temperatures settle in.
The surf is growling onto the high tide sandbanks, six feet or so of thick and lumpy, bouncy and bumpy stuff crushing the beach as it stretches to reach a seven metre plus high. It looks like the usual beast of a paddle, unless you can slip into the rip – and then slip out of it at the right time!
It is so good to see some beefy waves again but you just know that some other spots will have much better conditions today. Time for a short and socially distancing aware road trip maybe?
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The bay is rustling this morning, Harlyn waking and shaking as three to four feet of thick and wedgy waves wobble their way onto the high tide bank.
That tide is too high really and it’s going to be a good couple of hours before it’s shallow enough for the Rock starts to spin off some hollower and sharper wide open right-handers.
The carpark front row is already jostlingly full though, so it might just be a little cosy out there later too.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:17 (1.3m) High Tide: 19:10 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 23rd June 2020
Still furloughed? Or working from home? Or able to slip over for the day?
Well, today should make it worthwhile if you can.
We are expecting a decently spaced three to four foot swell with light offshore winds and plenty of warm, warm sunshine!
Don’t forget the sunblock!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The south westerly winds of the weekend should continue into the start of the week, Harlyn shining on Monday with some chunky swells being hollowed and steepened by that same wind, offshore at Harlyn.
South easterly breezes will settle in by Tuesday smoothing the swell lines into enjoyable, peeling surf at our favourite spots, that swell continuing through midweek and becoming more solid.
As temperatures rise, the clouds should clear allowing plenty of bright and cheery sunshine through, offshore breezes shaping and neatly folding those steady swell lines.
We should be enjoying great weather and great surf all week long!
Make the most of the surf though, those onshores will return for the end of the week!
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
