At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet
Steady summer rain is pitter pattering onto the sand this morning following a night of nature’s fabulous light show. Epic lightning illuminated the headland and flashed across the ocean all night long, an oddly silent illumination with some booming yet to come I guess.
The sea is calm again today, a glass smooth surface with the occasional small but immaculate little peak cresting and peeling for yard after yard. A foot or maybe two at best but flawlessly glassy.
Longboard gliders are going to love today but be careful of all that lightning!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is completely silent this morning, an electric static in the air still with enough energy to tingle.
There’s no surf here today but the sea is so inviting, the early morning swim group hopefully loving the smooth glassiness and peace of an infinite spread of calm.
It’s grey and it’s damp and it’s still but it’s warm and it’s cosy and it’s welcoming too.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:19 (2.9m) High Tide: 12:41 (5.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 14th August 2020
A westerly breeze is likely to freshen the air today, pushing the last few days of murk and dampness away while ruffling and crumbling the still small surf. We can expect something lighter and brighter by mid afternoon but those waves are still going to be small and fairly inconsequential.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Light breezes, clear skies, loads of sunshine and pretty much flat conditions are going to prevail this weekend.
With no swell generating activity anywhere to be seen out in the becalmed Atlantic we can expect a frustrating weekend of tiny little waves tumbling over the shallows to tease and beckon but really there won’t be enough oomph other than for the biggest of longboards.
But the swimming should be fine and, if you time it to perfection, you might just find shin high some peeling peaks on that bank at that stage of tide but only lasting for a moment or two.
Don’t forget the sunblock though!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
