At 5.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 foot
That silver grey canopy is covering us again this morning,the breeze light and offshore, the surf small but immaculate.
There’s a foot or so of offshore glassy waves gliding into the bay half an hour or so ahead of high tide, a liquid silver reflection of the sky above.
with the promise of brighter for later, we should be in for a relaxing day of longboard gliding in small but clean surf!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is as flat as flat can be around here this morning.
A great place to slide the SUP out for a peaceful one but you’re not going to be riding any waves here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:47 (1.2m) High Tide: 18:43 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 17th July 2015
And back we go again to those onshore winds but with them will come more surf along with plenty of sunshine.
We can expect three to four feet and bigger of lumpy and bumpy stuff at our main surf breaks, a couple of feet or so at our more sheltered spots (Harlyn). Actually Harlyn might end up being real fun today!
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
As this week of dismal weather enters its second half we should see a start to something of a change.
Offshores should be with us by Thursday, starting out light but strengthening as the day goes on, maybe pushing too hard against the already small and quite weak swelling and so making for marginal conditions by late afternoon. But before that we should have some gliding surf fun!
By Friday the wind is likely to be gusting in from the west, pushing a biggish swell ahead of it.
Friday looks like a Harlyn day, a four foot and bowling, sideshore kind of Harlyn day. And while the swell eases away through Saturday, the wind is likely to slip to the south west, cleaning up conditions at Harlyn.
So a weekend of dropping surf, lightening winds and some bright enough weather awaits, with maybe better conditions at Harlyn through Saturday morning, the action switching back to the main breaks through the rest of the weekend.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
