At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 5 feet
So far it’s a bright and cheery dawn that is waking us up this morning with a steady breeze drifting across from the west sou’ west, just strong enough to tumble the four feet or so of rolling surf.
The tide is dropping out and having as much effect on ripping the waves as that light wind is on chopping them up.
It is a bit of a mess but rideable if you’re happy to paddle through it all!
Let’s have a look at Harlyn, that could be okay in this wind – if the waves are big enough…….
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A decent couple to three feet of tumbling surf is being crumbled by a light breeze at Harlyn this morning, that breeze must be more westerly than was forecast. Which is a shame because there is enough surf getting into the bay – it would have been nice if conditions had stayed clean and sharp.
Anyway the surf is very okay with a deepening blue sky making it all look that little more attractive too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:11 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:06 (7.7m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 10th September 2018
The south westerly wind should have that few degrees extra of south in it today, making Harlyn cleaner and sharper than it has been but unfortunately the swell is likely to be smaller.
The afternoon tidal push should add a few extra much needed inches to it all but it is still likely to be only small at Harlyn,
But at least we will have the choice of smaller but neat and tidy, snappy little Hasrlyn or bigger but lumpier and paddle-testing Constantine!
The weather should be okay too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We seem to be on the very edge of that high pressure system which appears to have parked up across our swell entrance in the Atlantic, so although it is forcing any swells to swing all the way around it and then wriggle their way down and around the UK before eventually expiring into our bays and coves, it is also allowing the winds to slip to the south west as well as providing some half decent spells of sunshine.
So if those swells have enough power to them then Harlyn could show some pretty and fun, if quite small surf through the start of the week. By midweek we might just be enjoying some offshore, north easterly, breezes to shape and mould the smaller waves that will be spilling across our main surf breaks.
And then of course the week will end with north westerlies chopping out those same breaks.
But that is a little way away yet and in the meanwhile we should have enough clean waves at Harlyn to put a smile on our faces followed by a few days of smaller wave gliding at our main breaks.
All in some pleasant and bright enough, warm and cheering sunshine!
Well, maybe not all but a good chunk of it!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
