At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
Well that’s a proper Monday morning; all filled with gloom and murk and mist and mizzle, the air almost solid in its dampness.
And the wind is from the west north west, just to add an unwelcome chill to it!
And yet somehow it is still cosy and strangely pleasant, one of those days when it’s oddly pleasant to surf in amongst all that weather!
The surf though is barely a couple of feet and a chopped up and messed up, sloppy and bouncy couple of feet at that. But the wind is forecast to ease back and drift more to the west and then maybe just a degree or two to the south west, as the dense grey sky gradually thins to something brighter and lighter by noon.
So we could just be enjoying entirely different conditions by this afternoon, certainly by this evening!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
A bay laden with mist, murk, drizzle and darkness is still strangely welcoming this morning, the surf pretty much flat here the wind still more onshore than cross.
The other side has only small and choppy surf this morning but at least it is rideable over there!
And it’s a little sketchy to go paddling here today, visibility is so low you probably might not find your way just to cross the bay!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:26 (2.5m) High Tide: 13:57 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 4th July 2017
Oh, calm and glassy, pleasant conditions might just greet us today!
That same little 2 foot swell will probably be throwing some glassy little shapes all along the coast in some hazy but pleasant enough sunshine!
It could just end up being a fun one today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We could be in for a slow start to this week, with Monday delivering overcast skies again along with a milder but damper, blustery westerly wind.
So the three feet or so of choppy surf is unlikely to be too stoking, especially in that more unsettled weather.
By Tuesday the wind should have eased a lot and is likely to eventually have settled to the south west, allowing cleaner conditions for the surf at Harlyn but probably not being big enough there to be of much interest to many.
Tuesday will probably end up being another day of choppy surf at our main breaks for most.
And then as the wind eases and switches offshore, of course, the swell is likely to start to disappear!
But we should still be able to enjoy some small but clean surfing along with some very decent weather for at least a day or two during midweek!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
