At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
The view from the window is poorer than the reality this morning.
Grey clouds are clinging to the coastline and the hedgerows are rattling and rippling in the wind as short bursts of light rain splash the dunes but there are gaps of blue and the air is mild enough to call it ‘Summery’.
There’s not much surf though, a couple of feet at most and all a bit of a junked out mess, that wind blustering hard from the south west.
And that gives us hope. The surf is likely to double and then triple in size as the day goes on. It is still going to stay choppy and sloppy on this side of the headland but the other side will be offshore, with smaller waves but cleaner.
Give it a few hours and then it should be worth giving Harlyn a gander.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Right now Harlyn is serene and calm, the last shower having passed by, the wind blustering offshore, the waves almost flat.
Give it a few hours though and you’ll be shuffling around those camper vans and tents in a hurry to get to the clean and snappy, building surf.
It should be fun by this afternoon or evening.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 28th June 2020
A hard blowing west sou’ westerly wind is going to bump and lump the chunky swells that will be smacking those swell-exposed surfbreaks today but the sheltered spots, those different angled coves and bays should provide some good clean fun.
So that’ll be another Harlyn Sunday then!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Westerly winds are going to be bringing some damper and cooler weather our way through the weekend but with only a little luck we should see most of the wet stuff falling overnight.
So a blustery Saturday should show a mixed up three to four feet of more localised windswell bowling into the bays, the waves being smaller Harlyn but probably being the most attractive.
That wind might ease a little on Sunday but it is likely to slip to the north west as well, making for sloppier conditions everywhere. But hopefully there will be no more than a breeze, so we are probably going to be bouncing around in three feet of sloppy surf at any of our main surf breaks.
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
