At 5.45 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 feet
The early morning cloud cover is gradually slipping away to reveal something brighter again down in the bay, wide open blue skies starting to reflect from the deep blue sea.
A foot or two of crumpled and lumped little swells are rolling onto the high tide shore break with warping peaks of dark little waves running across the sand.
The breeze is set onshore, from the chill north west but we should still get a fun session or two in, probably turning out to be better than you might expect – if you pick the right spot at the right time!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The silver grey swimming pool of high tide Harlyn is swaying only gently in the tiny swell of six inch waves this morning.
The skies are gradually clearing as a brighter morning lazily dawns over the golden sands and deep blues of another pleasant day on the beach.
The water is warm, the sea is clear, there’s barely a wave to be felt so come on in, the water is gorgeous!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 4th August 2020
The wind should have backed to the south west overnight, leaving still chopped and slopped small surf to roll into our bays. But with the wind behind it, that’s well should build through the day, maybe pushing something more surfable into those sheltered spots like Harlyn.
We could be enjoying some clean and sparkly, if only small waves cracking across the Harlyn sand by late afternoon!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A breezy and unsettled week is going to start out with a continuation of those chilly north westerly winds of the weekend.
With only weak and bumpy little windswells washing ashore at the beginning of the week, there’s not going to be much quality surf to be found, although there should be plenty of little waves to play in for our visitors and beginners and those recreational surfers who should all enjoy these conditions.
The wind will soon back to the south west and start to push some thicker swells our way, Harlyn stretching and waking as we go into the middle of the week.
The lifeguards are going to get busier as those waves start to show just a little size through midweek, conditions improving as the wind eases its way to the south and then hopefully south easterly, if just for a moment toward week’s end.
If you’re on it we might just find some really decent surf at those magic spots during the back end of the week.
So, a mixed week of weather and surf should keep us on our toes, those magical moments of fun summer surf coming through only occasionally but definitely there.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
