Surf Report for Saturday 5th July 2014

Constantine (1*):  3 to 4 ft

at 6.20 a.m.


A blustery old morning is upon us, a fresh south westerly breezing into the bay and mixing up that already swirling surf.
There’s a lot of blue to be seen in amongst those grey/white clouds. the promise of lighter and brighter for later while still keeping alive the threat of the odd downpour.
The surf isn’t all that, three feet, probably bigger, a mixed up and messy, bumpy pile of stuff, bouncing around the bay. That is only an hour or so after low tide and so it is all as exposed as it’s going to be to that brisk wind. The forecasts are showing the wind strength to ease as the day rolls on, still staying onshore and still staying quite blustery but at least weakening in strength.
So we can expect a bumpy and mixed up but okay surf to be had through most of today, high tide offering the most opportunity for some fun.
I wonder if it’s big enough for Harlyn?
let’s have a little look……


Harlyn (2*):  1 to 2 ft


It’s still trying!
There is a foot or maybe, just occasionally, a couple of feet of super clean and crisp, reeling surf.
It is small, real small but then it is just an hour off low tide and so it is likely to increase in size with the tide.
Even so it is unlikely to be much bigger than a couple of feet or so.
Still, the sky is brightening, that wind is straight offshore here right now, it could just be fun later on this morning!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  17:25  (2.4m)           High Tide:  11:08  (6.0m)


Surf Forecast for Sunday 6th July 2014

Another breezy and bright day is waiting, the wind forecast to be westerly now rather than the north westerly that was being predicted earlier. But it could still go either way.
Anyway, there’s likely to be a good couple to three feet opt so of still bumpy and lumps swell washing our way, bouncing into our bays and coves and occasionally hitting the sand or rocks in a very surfable way.
It is probably going to be another one of those days where we are choosing between bigger but bumpier Constantine side versus smaller (maybe much smaller!0 but cleaner Harlyn side!
Have a great time wherever you end up!


Surf Conditions for the Weekend

That friendly high pressure system that has been lounging above us for so long has finally drifted away, a fairly deep low pressure system dropping down from the north west to replace it and also throw some more unsettled weather our way.
That low pressure is filling in a little as it approaches but some of the swell generated by it when it was deeper should already be on its way to us.
We can expect a bumpy and lumpy three feet or so of mixed up swell through Friday, getting a couple of feet bigger for Saturday and staying in the head high range as the weekend winds down.
The wind is of course going to be mainly onshore throughout the weekend, a south westerly going more westerly steady blow, maybe ending up swinging to the north west sooner than we would have liked.
So, a blustery and sometimes damp weekend awaits but there should be enough fine weather to keep most of our visitors happy while the surf rolls in to keep everyone with a surfboard busy enough!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
