The fog is down over this stretch of coastline this morning, a Daphne du Maurier dream of a morning with the ghosts of wreckers past seemingly busying themselves ashore. Or is it just Will and a couple of other more than keen surfers shuffling silently past?
Visibility is down to feet and gloom levels are high but you can hear what sounds like a couple of feet of surf rolling ashore. The breeze is light but steady, a cold and damp breath rather than a wind breezing onshore from the west, twitching between south west and north west.
And so the surf is crumbly and ruffled again, well what you can see of it. And it feels like this foggy marine layer might just last a good long while!
If you’re looking for something to do today then it should be worth your while teaching on down to Lusty Glaze beach for the Vintage Surfboard meet. It’s on from 10 till 2 and it’s free!
There should be tons of old boards and other paraphernalia to whisk you down that memory wave!

Harlyn (0*):  0 to 1 foot

What you can see of the surf through that dense fog this morning is pretty small, glassyish in a crumbly sort of way and kind of peeling for Harlyn but it is tiny.
And of course that fog is dense, a thick canopy of dampness is enveloping us this morning.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 21st June 2015

It should be brighter today and we might even be able to see where we are going once that fog of Saturday has completely lifted but the surf is likely to continue as it has, a foot or two of relatively weak and wishy washy stuff.
Early morning and late evening are likely to show the cleanest conditions with our best chance of surfing something more worthwhile being just ahead of high tide.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

Those onshore winds are going to continue to plague us this weekend, the wind choosing a more west north westerly direction through Saturday, slipping a couple of degrees more to the north through Sunday.But it is likely to stay only a light wind throughout the weekend, ruffling and crumbling the expected two to three feet of fairly weak surf rather than chopping it up completely. And the weather should stay mild with the ever present threat of some drizzle and dampness. But we should see some brighter stuff too.So, it’s not going to be a tropical surf drenched paradise this weekend but it should end up being okay throughout!Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
