At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A blowey old northerly wind is irritating its way down the coast this morning, flustering and blustering as it chills the air and chops the surf.
The sea birds are screeching in annoyance too as they scurry about in search of breakfast, that wind pushing them around the bay.
But the wind is a little more from direct north than it might be and so the three feet and slightly bigger surf is just a little cleaner than it might be too, especially in those sheltered little corners.
And the sun is trying to dominate slowly too, so it could just turn out to be a very pleasant day’s surf, especially if you get your timing right.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The wind is crumbling and chopping the almost flat, deep blue sea at Harlyn this morning, the golden sand framing those fragmented little waves with an atmospheric sky.
As always, it is all very nice at Harlyn but there’s not much in the way of surf to get excited about.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 8th September 2019
This Sunday is looking better than the forecast suddenly.
As high pressure just nudges over us, the wind should ease to a light, light breeze maybe striating out offshore for a few hours in the morning.
The surf is only likely to be very small but it could be clean and sparkling with some late summer sunshine to wallow in too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Northerly winds are going to take us into this weekend, calmer compared to midweek but still chilling the air and not doing not much for the surf conditions.
The most that we can hope for on Saturday are small and choppy little broken up waves at the more sheltered spots (sheltered from a northerly), those north facing breaks being pretty much flat as well as chopped out!
We should see a little respite on Sunday, the breeze lightening as it backs to the north east through Sunday morning, gradually easing back onshore through the afternoon.
But if you’re keen then you should find some really small but cleaner little surf first thing in the morning.
And that’s just about as much as we can expect as this pattern of onshore winds and mixed up weather continue to track our way across a mainly surfless ocean.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
