It’s a quiet and calm, low viz kind of morning with a thick sea mist clinging to the hedgerows and blanketing the bays.
And so the surf report is more guesswork than observation today, only the final expiration of those little waves to be seen amongst the thick fug and murk of an early summer’s morning.
But you can hear that there’s a decent couple of feet of probably a bit ruffled kind of surf, the breeze being onshore and drifting in from the south and west.
Once this mist disperses we should be in for a bit of a sunshiny day with a couple of feet of pleasant enough surf to play in!

Harlyn (1*):  0 to 1 foot

A foot or two of clean enough little waves are trickling over that little sandbar ahead of high tide this morning, almost fun but only just about rideable.
The other side of the headland is small enough but that is probably the place to go to surf today. But if you want to paddle then here might be the place to launch your SUP!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 7th August 2016

Steady westerly winds are likely to continue through today, that same couple of feet of weak and hesitant swell washing weakly ashore. But by the evening we should be enjoying the arrival of a pushing new swell. As the weather brightens and warms, a three to four foot and building swell will start to show itself.
We’ll be surfing some thick and hollow Harlyn waves by the evening’s high tide!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

As this week blows itself out in an autumnal whirr of strong onshore winds and stabbing downpours, a more pleasant weekend is quietly approaching.
This weekend does promise to be a weekend of two halves, for surfers anyway.
Light onshore, south westerly, winds will chop the surf at the main breaks through Saturday, blowing steadily offshore at the sheltered spots and smoothing the very few tiny waves that manage to get around and into them.
By Sunday we should be enjoying the sight of a new and growing swell, a thick and lumpy, fast building swell pushing onto our coastline with some vigour.
With clearer skies than we have been enjoying for a good few days, this weekend is promising pretty much something of everything for everyone!
Don’t forget the sunblock!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
