At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s bit of a moody one this morning!
The wind is fresh, a fresh sou’wester which is blowing columns of dark and brooding clouds rapidly across the horizon leaving some brighter and lighter patches to enjoy. That wind is like a busy little housemaid, brushing away those left over lumps of cloud and streaks of rain threat. But there are more taking their places!
And so the surf is a junked out mess of rolling and brooding two to three foot stuff. It’s all lumpy and bumpy and frothy and crumbly but surfable, if you’re keen enough!
It looks like a brighter and more useful day ahead of us, well better than the downpours of yesterday anyway but with that threat of a drenching shower never too far away!
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot
A foot or so of tired but smooth little waves are folding themselves onto the sand just after low tide here this morning.
It’s broody here as well this morning, the dark and light of an early morning deciding which way to go. But chances are that the skies will clear, a bit anyway and the surf should build just that little bit with the tidal push.
It should be fun in an hour or two, probably becoming a decent couple of feet just ahead of high tide.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:21 (2.2m) High Tide: 11:03 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 31st July 2017
Another day of south westerly winds, showers and a choice of mediocre surf to play in. The West side will be in the two to three feet and choppy range while the sheltered spots should be a foot or two but much cleaner.
Those showers are likely to still be stalking us but otherwise it should be bright enough to be considered a summer’s day.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
South westerly winds are dictating the surf and weather this week pushing any yukky weather away quite quickly while also strengthening that mix of broken waves that should be rolling our way.
So we will be facing the choice of surfing bigger but choppier west facing surf breaks or trimming across those snappy little close-outs at Harlyn or other wind sheltered spots.
That’s through the first half of the week anyway but watch out for some much bigger surf through the back half of the week.
By Thursday we should be enjoying some bigger waves, possibly getting into the ‘real big’ range by Thursday evening or Friday morning. But all the time with that sou’ westerly wind blowing hard, a lot of surf breaks becoming a choppy and unpredictable mess.
It does look like a Harlyn week for most of us this week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
