At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Low cloud is still clinging to our horizons this morning, not as dense, not as damp and not as clammy as yesterday but still not the glorious high summer sunshine that our visitors hope for!
Those cloud layers are ribboned with blue, the far horizon maybe offering hope for something brighter later.
In the meantime a steady northerly breeze is keeping the air fresh and temperatures lower than in other parts of the country while crumbling and ruffling the three feet of lightly shaken surf. It’s not the cleanest surf but it’s not a complete mess either, a handful are out off the Point and grabbing the occasional long runner.
Although it does look a little better on the Peak or over at Booby’s.
Anyway, there are waves, the sun will eventually claw its way through and the water is lovely and warm, so it’ll do!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
It’s already all a little lively over at Harlyn as a couple of feet or so of onshore breeze crumbled and lightly slopped little surf tumbles ashore this morning.
Stripes of blue sky can just be made out further out to sea but above is right now is a little greyer.
But it is still mild and dry and the sea looks inviting and there are little but rideable waves if you’re keen too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:51 (1.8m) High Tide: 09:34 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 10th August 2020
Summer continues to tumble along with more light north westerly breezes slopping and crumbling the two feet or so of fairly close together little waves.
The high summer sun might just manage to elbow that low lying cloud out of the way earlier today allowing some radiant sunshine to cheer our visitors up.
So, more small summer surf is on the menu on another lazy summer’s day by the looks of thing!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Northerly breezes are likely to continue to tumble and crumble a small and fairly weak little swell throughout this coming week, not really allowing the surf to be any better than a cruisy summer affair.
Mixed weather is going to unsettle our summertime visitors too, with those marauding showers keeping everyone on their toes but with enough brighter spells to make it worthwhile too.
So, those mid-length cruisers, longboards and cheaters are going to be the boards of choice again this week, anything with enough float and stability to buoy you through the flats.
But there will be enough surf and enough weather to keep most of us fairly happy and occupied, surfing those long summer days away and cruising at the beach.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
