At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A wet and dull sou’ westerly is galloping into the bays this morning, bringing in milder air along with a whole lot of dampness too.
Three feet or so of bouncy, grey surf is pushing through the murk and grime of that watery wind with little shape or direction to it but offering something to surf on if you’re that keen.
Harlyn could be beckoning though, it’ll be more than big enough soon.
Harlyn (3*): 1 to 2 feet
The south westerly wind is rattling offshore at Harlyn this morning, holding and supporting the tiny but immaculately shaped little waves in the rain and dreariness of a very wintery looking day.
But those waves are peaking and peeling (for Harlyn!) and shimmying across the sand. And bear in mind that this wind should push more swell our way too.
We should be enjoying a fun three feet or so of curling and whomping surf here on this afternoon’s tide!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:43 (1.5m) High Tide: 16:37 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 9th May 2021
Hard blowing south westerly winds are going to continue to blow and push a thick and lumpy six feet and more of rolling wintery swell our way.
The weather is likely to carry on being disgusting but Harlyn could provide us with a whole lot of surfing entertainment to make up for that!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A fat little low pressure system is going to be providing a few days of hard blowing sou’ westerly winds this weekend, pushing a whole lot of rolling surf our way and swinging it around and into Harlyn Bay.
Starting out with small and fun, offshore shaped, snappy little surf on Saturday morning the swell should continue to gradually build throughout the day, getting into the three to four foot size range on the afternoon tidal push.
The swell will continue to build overnight and by Sunday Harlyn should be thick and heavy with solid four to six foot waves unloading in cavernous style throughout the day.
It’s difficult to avoid a good old drubbing when conditions are like this but then the rewards are there for you when you persevere.
And that’s where the swell is likely to settle as we go into the new week, those chunky and barrelling waves continuing to pour through at Harlyn for a good few days, a bit bigger on the rising tides, a wee bit smaller on the fall.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
