At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The wind and murk of a dark and damp, dreary autumnal morning is a little off-putting, that wind gusting in from the south, maybe south east right now but forecast to back south westerly too soon.
With a seven metre spring high tide, any chance of being able to ride those small but offshore sculpted, pretty little waves has gone. The frustration levels are going to rise too as the tide drops, the wind is likely to be gusting hard onshore by the time the tides are shall enough to create a break.
So a foot or two of onshore slopped, choppy little surf is probably as much as we can hope for today!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Another flat day at Harlyn is on the cards, a heavy mizzle being sprayed across the bay by that gusting south south easterly wind. It’s just a shame that there’s no swell around, the surf here is pretty much flatty, flatty, flatkins today!
And if you haven’t heard yet, the Great Atlantic Raft Race has been postponed until tomorrow!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:39 (1.4m) High Tide: 18:35 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 27th August 2018
A brighter but still breezy day should be made more enjoyable by producing a fun three foot swell or maybe, hopefully even a bit bigger.
The wind is likely to be from the north west again, making for more sloppy and choppy conditions pretty much everywhere. We will probably have to wait longer than we want to for some sharp sunshine but it should eventually cheer us all up and make the surf at least look a bit better!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We have almost seen the back of those annoying north westerly winds, almost but not quite. The week is likely to start with those same north westerly winds blowing in and making a mess of an already weak little three foot swell. But by Tuesday we should be enjoying some calm offshore breezes, small surf and very pleasant weather. But just as we relax, that north westerly returns to chill the air and chop the surf, a gentle reminder that Autumn is suddenly not so far away.
And then it all comes good for week’s end.
Fine weather, light breezes, bright sunshine and small but hopefully big enough, prettily shaped surf should cheer us all up for those last few days of the school holidays.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
