At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s a slow start to today with that daylight taking its own time to lazily brighten the day.
But the sky is gradually brightening and the wind is light while a fun looking three feet if surf rolls through in the bay.
The wind is light and steady from the south sou’ west just gently slopping those three to four foot waves, adding to the mix of the dropping tide rip and those summer shaped sandbars.
But, on an August Bank Holiday Saturday the surf is three to four feet of peaking and bowling waves and that will do nicely!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
There’s two feet of shimmering glass surf around here this morning, those set peaks teasing and tempting as they bristle into the small lineup an hour or so off high tide on the drop.
The surf is good right now over the other side of the headland but this is a pleasant looking, small wave alternative if you’re looking for one?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:06 (0.8m) High Tide: 18:00 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 30th August 2015
Light north easterly winds are likely to be blowing offshore today, helping to mould and shape the expected one to two feet of clean and peeling waves.
It should be a day of longboard heaven for the gliders and short fish shralping for the young ‘uns!
Surf Conditions for the Bank Holiday Weekend
The onshore winds are likely to lighten up as we go into the weekend starting out south westerly and switching to the north east (offshore) by Sunday.
The south westerly direction gives the surf at Harlyn a chance to shine but we are probably going to be lucky to enjoy anything more than a foot or so around there. And so it will be that decision as to whether to surf small but clean Harlyn or bigger but sloppier west facing breaks on Saturday.
At least we will have achoice though!
The weather is likely to improve as we go along too, with some nice periods of warm and cheery sunshine well into the Bank Holiday Weekend.
So, Saturday looks promising with the wind easing throughout the day, that three to four foot swell easing as the sunshine carries on cheering us up.
By Sunday the surf will have dropped a bit, a foot or two of fairly weak surf is the most we can hope for but the wind should be light and offshore too, a fresh breeze for most of the time with some pleasant sunshine here and there.
And then Monday is looking bright and cheerful and fun all day!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
