At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet.
The wind has eased this morning, a light breeze is now coolly drifting down from the north, not really effecting anything yet. The sky is mixed, a few lighter and brighter gashes contrasting with those dark grey patches, the threat of a heavy downpour not too far away.
But the surf is not too bad at all this morning!
Three feet of curling and slashing lefthand reelers are spinning off from my favourite sandbar of this year! While the swell is still pretty close-fetch and powerless, those sandbars are working their hardest to focus their energy into something more worthwhile. And so we can hope that the wind stays calm and the pushing tide assists that bumpy swell, while the sun gradually eases its way out.
It could just end up being a very okay day of reasonable surf and okay weather today!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
There’s nothing much happening with the surf here today!
A foot or so of onshore chopped and tired looking surf is crumbling ashore, all grey and reluctant looking in the flat light of a damp and threatening early summer morning.
No, there are other things to do than try to surf here today!
It might improve with the afternoon tide but the other side of the headland is going to have more size and, if the wind stays light, then it should be better all round today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:14 (1.9m) High Tide: 15:14 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 31st July 2016
Smaller waves are likely to be stumbling our way today while the wind remains onshore, still lightly blowing in from the north west.
We will probably be enjoying couple of feet of lightly slopped and chopped, mushy surf but maybe under a bright enough sky! Hardly classic but it will do at the end of July.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well at least the weather might improve for the weekend!
Light breezes are set to gently waft our way as we go into the weekend, that same three foot swell continuing to lazily roll our way.
Those breezes are likely to be light enough and mainly from the north west, a chillier direction and not very supportive of the swell, while that swell is likely to be just a continuation of the same close-fetch and fairly weak stuff that we have enjoyed all week.
So, a weekend of mainly fun and playful surf lies in wait with just about enough sunshine to resemble summer!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
