Surf Report for Monday 27th July 2020

At 5.55 a.m:  

Constantine (1*):  1 to 2 feet 

A gusting sou’ wester is blustering into the bay again this morning, the grey sky of a rainy day clinging to each horizon while small waves are tumbling and tripping their way ashore.
The choppy foot or two of sloppy and weak, junk surf is not exactly screaming an invitation to go in but, as always, it is probably going to be a bit better than you would expect.
And it should pick up, eventually.
And the water is warm, ish.
And the sun should come out, later.
Maybe.   

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat  

The wind is shrieking offshore at Harlyn this morning, flattening and smoothing the already pretty calm sea, allowing those deep blues and greens to shine through beneath the dullness of a threatening grey sky.
There’s no surf but you might just want to loiter here a while this morning.  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  17:29  (1.7m)              High Tide:  11:10  (6.5m)

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 28th July 2020 

Aaargh!
North westerly winds are going to blow onshore today, making for choppy conditions at pretty much every surf break on this coast.
The surf might just nudge up a fraction in size which will test your reflexes, those bouncy shore breaks and high tide dumpers being the closest we’re going to get to anything with some oomph to it.  

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

The jet stream seems to have slipped down to the south of us for a while and that’s going to let a few fronts gallop through bringing a little dampness and some blustery onshore wind to start the week.
Monday might well be spent over at Harlyn in smaller waves on the incoming tide, those waves being much cleaner than most of the other breaks, hopefully a foot or two of fun little snappers in summer temperature waters.
But that wind is likely to be north westerly by Tuesday, onshore everywhere and making for chillier temperatures as well. Then again, as I’m always saying, Harlyn can be fun when it’s onshore there, you have more time to get into the wave than when it’s steaming offshore. We’ll have to wait and see if the swell is big enough though to swing all the way around Trevose Head and then find its way into the bay.
But by midweek the wind should have calmed before easing offshore for the end of the week.
So we should be back to our favourite little surf breaks to catch a short but building swell through Thursday and into Friday.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
