There’s a little taste of Autumn out there this morning, just enough to remind us how great that recent weather has been!
The wind is screeching in from the south west with enough force to shake all those heavily laden trees while carpet-beating the hedges, the marram in the dunes shivering in the rain. And there is rain, big lumps of rain falling suddenly before being scattered in the wind.
And so the surf is a windblown mess too. Three feet of lumps and bumps being thrown around the bay as its struggles towards a seven metre high tide.
No, here is not the place to be for a relaxing surf, not this morning. Better to roll over and pull the blankets back up while waiting for better later.
Or you could nip round to Harlyn?:
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple of feet of fairly clean but kind of lumpy and hesitant little surf is occasionally pushing into Harlyn this morning.
There’s a long wait between sets and those sets are a bit fat right now, just ahead of a biggish high tide. But I reckon that it will all improve to be a whole lot better later, as the tide drops out to make for a shallower break.
It could be fun by mid-morning and even better by later this afternoon!
In spite of all the wind and rain!

Surf Forecast for Monday 30th April 2018
South westerly winds are going to destroy the three feet of swell that should be blowing our way through today, our main surf breaks continuing to be messy and choppy but Harlyn coming to the rescue again with only small but cleaner and more fun conditions.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
South westerly going westerly winds are going to dominate the start of this week with four to five feet or so of wind driven swell pushing along the coast.
Monday will probably see the biggest conditions in amongst the wind and rain of an Atlantic low pressure system, the main beaches being blown out but Harlyn, as always, stepping up and offering some fun and offshore shaped three foot barrels.
And that will take us well into the middle of the week when the sun should settle back in and the wind should start to ease off. Wednesday will probably be a more relaxing day at Harlyn before making the return to our main, more swell exposed surf breaks for the back half of the week.
And the back half of this week could just see a return to those small but idyllic conditions again!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
