At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
Three feet of ruffled and bumpy swell is washing through a heavy downpour this morning, the sky a solid grey of murk and mizzle, the sea a deep reflection of that.
And it’s all a little chillier than it has been too!
The breeze is from the west south west, normally a mild direction but often wet although it should help to keep the swell lively, if not very clean.
We should have some worthwhile waves to ride through midmorning if your paddling strength is up to it!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Conditions are clean around here this morning, if a little wet and grey. But the waves are tiny right now.
A foot or very occasionally two of sheet glass little waves are wrapping themselves ashore, snappy little playful waves crashing in. A light west sou’ wester is blowing small swell lines our way, so it might very well build in size ahead of this afternoon’s high tide.
In the meantime the best that we can hope for here is a foot of snappy and glassy little close-outs to play in.
But it should improve!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:52 (2.0m) High Tide: 14:47 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 5th June 2017
The wind is likely to increase in strength through today, blowing in plenty of localised windswell on top of smaller but already thick groundswells.
So it is looking very much like an Harlyn day today with a half decent three to four feet of crashing barrels expected all day long. And there just might be a period through midmorning when th wind switches offshore! Just for a couple of hours or so but, if it does than we could have a whole different day of surf!
I’m off to sunny Wales today so no surfcheck but there should be plenty of surf at those sheltered spots for everybody to enjoy!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gusting onshore winds are set to plague us through this week, a week of mixed weather and fresh winds.
The start of the week will see plenty of rain falling on a thick four feet plus of bumpy and lumpy swell, building through Monday and peaking into Tuesday, showing some big waves everywhere by Tuesday morning.
Those winds are going to make it testing though, the search will be on for some sheltered spots to surf throughout the week, or if that’s not your thing then Harlyn will offer that cleaner and sharper option, even if you have to enjoy all those close-outs before you get a good ’un!
And that’s the way of it for the whole week by the look of things!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
