At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 feet
A thick blanket of dull grey and silver cloud is trapping warm and muggy air beneath it this morning, the air absolutely still, a muffled silence disturbed only by the whisper of surf and quiet birdsong.
The surf is small but fun looking, a decent couple of feet or so of wobbly waves gently breaking off the shallower parts of the bay, maybe promising something a little better on this afternoon’s tide.
In the meantime we should be able to have loads of fun gliding across those mini peaks while we wait for the clouds to separate, which might not happen until we have enjoyed a shower or two first!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The surf is almost flat at Harlyn on this windless, calm and muggy morning.
Six inches to maybe a foot of prettily peeling mini waves are teasing and tempting as they stand taller than their real height on that high tide sandbank. It’s all glassy and shimmering and appealing on this muggy, overcast morning but those wavse are titchy!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:11 (1.6m) High Tide: 18:06 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 9th July 2017
Light onshore breezes are going to frustrate the small surf agin today!
A foot or two of lazy swell is going to be warped and bumped by that south westerly, going north westerly breeze.
The weather should brighten up but that might just take a while to happen. The air should freshen today though, that breeze gradually moving most of the muggy air away and the overcast sky gradually brightening too.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend is shaping up to be a bit of an enjoyable one with some decent weather along with only small but fun surf!
Friday’s light onshore winds will be replaced by a stillness and calmness on Saturday, only the lightest of sea breezes being triggered through the afternoon.
If we can avoid the odd wandering thunderstorm and stay cool enough not to trigger more fog then we should be enjoying another fabulous summer’s day of sun and small surf.
We can expect to be met by a couple of feet or so of smooth and glassy waves to ride on under a bright and summery sky!
And that should continue through Sunday too, maybe losing a lot of that sunshine as the land ends up getting too warm for itself and the sea dampening things down by throwing some hazy cloud our way. And that light, or might not, develop into some wet and thundery moments!
So, dig out the longboards, pull on your summer suits and enjoy what should be a fun summer’s weekend!
