At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
A chill wind is blowing down the coast this morning, a brisk nor’ wester which is pushing and tumbling the quite big, maybe sometimes six foot swells as they rush into the bays.
The sky is bright enough but there are thick cloud bundles loitering in the distance too, probably promising a little wetness for some later on.
There’s going to be a fair bit of paddling involved with today’s surfing but with water temperatures steadily rising (it’s about 15 deg C out there right now) and those small tides, we might get a fun session or two in with a bit of planning!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 3 feet
A chillier nor’ westerly wind is blustering into an empty Harlyn Bay this morning, that wind hurrying and shoving the smaller than expected, one to two feet of patchy surf. There’s the occasional much bigger set swinging around the headland though, probably indicating that the tide is playing its part in allowing those much bigger swells to pass by the bay without interruption.
I’m guessing that those waves will eventually wrap around and into the bay as the tide fills in this morning.
In the meantime there are waves tumbling ashore, not great for surfing but there’s enough to offer a tumble or two if you’re keen enough!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:07 (2.2m) High Tide: 10:48 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 18th June 2021
More northerly winds will continue to drop the air temperatures today but that wind might just ease more easterly, offshore, by early morning, helping to shape the three feet of rolling swell that we can expect. And although that wind will feel a bit chilly, more bright and summery sunshine should offset that.
So a bright and sunny, surf filled day lies ahead!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed weekend of mixed weather awaits us but with enough surf and weather to keep most of us happily entertained.
Saturday’s offerings will include only small surf in the one to two feet size range but pleasantly shaped by a light offshore, south easterly breeze.
We might see the odd shower or two but there should be some very pleasant sunshine around too!
Southerly winds will help the bigger swells on Sunday, a decently shaped and solid enough three to four feet of curling surf should be glistening and glinting in plenty of bright summer sunshine.
So, all in all a fine weekend is expected with plenty of surf and enough weather to allow us to spend some quality time down in the bay!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
