At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
That wind is still blasting into the bay this morning, only a little calmer than yesterday and a little more westerly too but with pretty much the same wave trashing effect.
That four foot windswell is still all tatty and torn, a lumpy and bumpy mess of waves teetering and tottering onto the beach.
There are waves and it is surfable but Harlyn might just be better again today!
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
The wind is still gusting across Harlyn this morning, those still heavy showers lurking on the edges, ready to pounce when you least want them but they’re nowhere near consistent, there’s more dry weather than wet to be enjoyed.
Three feet of lightly chopped surf is tumbling ashore this morning, not quite the driving grinders of the last couple of days but still with enough oomph to unleash few air bombs for the athletic, a few crumbly head dips for the rest of us.
It’s likely to get crunchier as the tide empties and a little softer agin as it deepens this evening.
So, something for everyone!?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:33 (0.9m) High Tide: 09:12 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 24th August 2020
West or south westerly winds are likely to continue to bluster their way into all of our Seven Bays today, lightly chopping and churning that same three to four foot windswell as it bounces onto the westward facing beaches, tidying it all up at the sheltered spots like Harlyn.
So, another day filled with surf although maybe not of the best quality!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
These breezy and blustery conditions are set to bother us for a while yet, the week starting out with westerly going south westerly winds pushing through a quickly growing and strengthening swell. We can expect some big waves to be beating down on our beaches by Tuesday, a hard blowing sou’ wester sending everyone scuttling back to Harlyn for some shelter. Those waves are still likely to be booming in size around there all day long throwing plenty of big and board snapping grinders across from the Rock at lower tide.
North westerly breezes are going to mess things up during midweek, maybe allowing a little surfari over to the far coast where it could be quite pleasant in the offshore conditions that will be on offer.
And as quickly as the booming swell arrive, so it will be gone, leaving only tiny surf at Harlyn before the wind backs agin to the north west to slop everything out at week’s end.
So, a mixed up week of surf conditions is forecast for this week but if you’re keen and free to chase it you should get some pretty good sessions in, some big, some hollow but all of them fun!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
