At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 feet
It’s another cloudy and overcast start to today but the air is milder and the breeze is just offshore and so the still quite small but okay surf has plenty of shape to it. A couple of feet of smooth faced but right now, rip chopped little surf is spilling in, the sets a decent size but a long way apart.
The surf is a lot like yesterday but there’s more of it and that wind is more southerly than expected and so is putting that bumpy cross chop onto the face of some waves as they peak into the rip.
But that is all just details and it will all change with the tide anyway, as it does.
Essentially there’s a couple of feet of fun looking surf with bigger sets and the weather should brighten as we go along too.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is doing that teasing thing again today.
Sets of tiny waves are spilling across the sand, all smooth and hollow and fun to mind-surf but just too small. Much too small.
It’s all round to the other side again today for some smooth and offshore shaped, still quite small but loads of fun surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:55 (1.7m) High Tide: 09:32 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 2nd September 2018
That same little swell should continue to spill our way throughout today, a couple of feet in height with those infrequent sets tempting us in on shorter boards than the regular sets demand while the breeze struggles to remain offshore.
Everything should be clean and bright and smooth and even at the start of the day but the afternoon sea breeze effect could just push that breeze to the south and then south west through the afternoon.
It should still be fun but maybe not as fun as it was when the breeze was offshore.
Still, the late summer sunshine might just make up for that!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
As the kids prepare themselves to return to school and college, this weekend provides a temptation that those who still have the time will find hard to resist!
A small, one to two foot swell should continue to roll our way, being shaped and moulded by a light but steady offshore breeze drifting in from the south east.
So we should have a very pleasant weekend of fun surf, light offshore breezes and enough surf to get most people into the sea.
And the water is so warm too! If that late summer sun manages to burn through the low level cloud this weekend then it could just be very nice indeed.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
