At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 5 feet
There ain’t no pitter patter of raindrops on the window panes this morning, there’s more of a gush and a roar of short but heavy downpours as a hard blowing southerly wind gusts across the bays.
Yep, it is more of an autumn one than a high summer one, that wind blowing noisily and carrying some wetness while it rattles the hedgerows and bends the grass in its hurry.
And so the surf isn’t all that with four to five feet of almost good swell bouncing into the bay. The wind is catching hold of it all and pushing and shoving those otherwise potentially good wave sections, causing them to flop and fold themselves over carelessly and chaotically.
Harlyn should be better though……….
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet and just occasionally bigger waves of turquoise peaks are slipping quietly into the bay this morning, the wind blasting offshore and so causing some surface slop on the weaker ones but hollowing out those rare bigger and more solid ones.
But those set waves do look fun, especially as the tide is still a little too high, it should all become sharper and crisper as the tide drops.
And the size should increase just a little as the day rolls on too with the wind remaining strong but offshore here all day.
Yep, it’s one of those Harlyn days today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:07 (1.3m) High Tide: 19:01 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 11th June 2017
Bigger swells are going to be battered and slopped by that still strong south westerly wind at all of our main breaks, Harlyn being the goto spot in these conditions.
Six to eight feet of thick and lumpy swell is expected on another blustery and stormy Sunday, although the weather should clean up as we go along.
Even Harlyn is going to have some thick and heavy surf today, probably in the four to five foot range, four to five feet of offshore caverns though!
You might just want to take a back-up board with you if you intend to play in those board-snappers at low tide today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Bigger waves and strong winds are heading our way this weekend, with some mixed weather hopefully brightening as we go along.
Saturday should see some five to six foot swells being torn and pulled apart at our favourite surf breaks by gusting gale force south westerly winds. Harlyn should soon kick in though with a couple to three feet of fun surf to start, slowly building in size, if only bit, through the afternoon.
By Sunday it should be all a bit brighter while Harlyn throws down some more sand drenched, hollow and heavy barrels! A solid six to eight foot swell should be producing some grinding five foot plus surf for Harlyn on Sunday, that wind blowing hard and offshore here all day long!
Take it easy out there, those halcyon days of summer are not quite with us just yet!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
