At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
It’s all quiet out there on this lightly overcast summer Sunday morning, a chill breeze drifting in from the west nor’ west, the promise of a deluge not too far way in those other dark, dark clouds.
Not much more than a couple of feet of sloppy surf is tumbling into the bays, a stuttering and stumbling little windswell tripping over the shallows. But there’s nobody around and the water is warm enough for a fun splash about. It should be worth a play later, especially if you have one of those Softech foam boards, a Bomber or a Mason Ho twinnie or something similar. Or a mini-mal maybe.
Anyway, there are little waves it’s just all a bit sloppy and choppy.
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot
There are a few about at Harlyn already this morning, the girls going for a swim, a few joggers slaloming between a handful of dog walkers, a car or three of visiting optimistic surfers and the usual strollers and bemused campervan nappers.
And there are little waves too.
A foot or occasionally two of slow moving little waves are trickling onto the high tide bank, the odd one peaking and shuffling across the sand.
The dropping tide will sharpen it cup but it might also weaken an already pretty weak looking little windswell.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:42 (1.5m) High Tide: 17:38 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 3rd August 2020
North westerly winds are going to continue to blow into our bays all day long, junking and slopping those already small little windswells.
At least it won’t be completely flat and with the right board at the right place at the right time it should be a bit of fun-in-the-sun for an hour or two!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A breezy and unsettled week is going to start out with a continuation of those chilly north westerly winds of the weekend.
With only weak and bumpy little windswells washing ashore at the beginning of the week, there’s not going to be much quality surf to be found, although there should be plenty of little waves to play in for our visitors and beginners and those recreational surfers who should all enjoy these conditions.
The wind will soon back to the south west and start to push some thicker swells our way, Harlyn stretching and waking as we go into the middle of the week.
The lifeguards are going to get busier as those waves start to show just a little size through midweek, conditions improving as the wind eases its way to the south and then hopefully south easterly, if just for a moment toward week’s end.
If you’re on it we might just find some really decent surf at those magic spots during the back end of the week.
So, a mixed week of weather and surf should keep us on our toes, those magical moments of fun summer surf coming through only occasionally but definitely there.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
