At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
A steady downpour is drumming on the sand this morning, washing down the visitor stained beaches and soothing that lightest of light breezes.
And the surf is real good!
Three feet or so of glassy lumps are standing tall in the murk, some of them spinning off across a shallow sandbank, others backing off to reappear in the shallows. The tide is completely wrong right now but there’s a steady swell, a light, light breeze and a rising tide.
It could be good today but don’t forget the waterproofs!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
There are small but snappy little waves smashing into the sand here this morning.
A foot or so of glass like walls, standing taller than they should before crash landing into the shallows.
The tide is way out and so you have to think that it might improve as the tide rises over the next couple of hours. But then again the other side is looking clean and glassy too and is quite a bit bigger!
That’s the place to aim for a surf this morning, especially if the wind stays clam as the tide rises.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:52 (2.4m) High Tide: 10:33 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 23rd August 2015
More of the same is on the cards again today with light, variable winds and that same steady three feet of swell washing through.
The weather looks damp again but drying out for long periods of brighter stuff here and there.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Yet another low pressure system is cruising across the upper parts of the UK, spinning its rain and wind our way but not that much in the way of waves.
There’s likely to be three feet of wobbly and windblown surf at our main surf breaks into the weekend but whether the surf will be big enough to get all the way around and into the more sheltered spots we’ll have to wait and see.
Saturday is likely to be very calm with light breezes flicking back and fore with the tide. We might be enjoying some three feet and (relatively) clean and fun surf in the morning at our preferred breaks before the onshore sea breezes kick in through early afternoon.
Sunday looks like more of a south westerly wind day, that three foot swell being pushed our way by the continuing light wind.
We can only hope that that swell is strong enough to find its way around the headland and back into Harlyn if the wind turns out to be stronger than suggested. If it does that could be fun, only small but clean and fun.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
