At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is screeching its way into the bay this morning, a blustering north westerly pushing and bullying three to four feet of broken up and ragged, grey surf onto the beach.
Short burst rain squalls are hosing the beach in staccato bursts too, skin stinging and burning in its harshness.
It is a stark and abrasive and biting start to the day but it is also enlivening and energising and dramatic.
But the sun will elbow its way through the darkness soon enough, cheering up the day but doing nothing for the surf except it does always look more inviting in bright sunshine!
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
A couple of feet or so of wishy washy junk surf is bumbling its way into Harlyn this morning, the north westerly wind bouncing and chopping those small and very weak looking little waves.
There’s not much to surf on but then Harlyn can always be way more fun than expected when it’s small and windchopped!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:40 (1.4m) High Tide: 18:36 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 16th August 2019
South westerly winds are going to gouge their way along the coastline today, tree bendingly strong and rain laden, those winds are going to drive some building windswell our way too.
We can expect some dramatic and wild surf conditions at our main breaks while hopefully Harlyn will shift gears a little to provide some hollow and crashing, board snappingly fun barrels, building throughout the day!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A short, sharp low pressure system is expected to drive its way up the north Atlantic this weekend, providing strong winds, plenty of rainfall and some thick and heavy wind swells for us to play in!
Harlyn, as always, is going to be the ‘go to’ destination this weekend, those south westerly winds blowing hard and offshore, hollowing and holding those same swells that the wind has driven across the ocean.
Three to four feet of sand sucking, shallow and hollow surf will be testing your reflexes all weekend long as those heavy cloud banks get blown away, allowing some bright and cheery sunshine to make it all look that little bit better than it might actually be too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
