At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
Another one of those silver grey days is opening the day today, the wind steady and from the south, the sky grey streaked with silver and the surf three feet or so and a little erratic.
The tide is halfway in on the rise and so it is just at that inbetween stage and not quite hitting any shallow bits. That should change with the tide though and I guess that it should be fun just before high.
This wind could start gusting quite strongly as the day rolls on though and that might mess things up, especially as the tide wanders back out to low.
Let’s have a little look at Harlyn to see if it’s big enough….
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot
Little waves are breaking here this morning, a foot or two of smart and shapely, hollow little waves, moving quickly once they break.
There are big gaps between those five wave sets, so I guess that people will be stopping on the bridge for a momentary surf check and seeing only flatness, those sets sneaking through just after.
Yes, there will be a fun and clean but real small little surf to be had here this morning but we will have to wait and see if it goes flatter as the tide drops out through midday.
This evening could be okay again though!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:36 (1.2m) High Tide: 09:13 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 7th July 2015
A fresh westerly wind is going to be chopping out the swell on the west facing beaches while still helping that swell to roll our way.
Even Harlyn might be a little sloppy today with that wind being forecast to be more sideshore than off.
But there should be some surf to be had with some coming and watching. But it is going to be another choice between bigger and choppier west side or smaller but a bit cleaner sheltered breaks (Harlyn!).
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another week of mainly onshore winds looms, a consistent three to four foot swell pushing in all along the coast, big bundles of white/grey clouds being ushered along to show some brighter skies too.
Monday and Tuesday are likely to throw up that old choice of whether to surf three foot and bigger but choppy and sloppy Constantine side of the headland or super clean but tiny Harlyn side.
Or maybe a bit of both working with the tide?
We should see some much bigger surf by midweek with that same steady south westerly wind blustering in, making the choice a bit easier locally – it is probably going to be a typical three foot Harlyn day!
And then the end of the week is starting to look quite pleasant. But that is a long way away yet!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
