At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s a little bit cloudier, a little bit greyer, a little bit cooler this morning, the temperature a good bit lower than it has been for some time and the sky lacking that blue of the last week or two.
The surf has been scared away by the change in the weather too but just for a while, a west nor’ westerly wind will push in a foot or two of windslop by lunchtime.
So it won’t be a great day for surf but you should be able to get in and maybe have more fun than you expected!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
There’s no surf here today, the onshore wind making the grey, sand lapping ripples sloppy as well.
Give it a day or so before we will probably be round here looking for shelter!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:48 (1.2m) High Tide: 16:44 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 23rd June 2017
West sou’ westerly winds will blow more surf our way today with a three to four foot, close-fetch windswell washing along the coast by morning.
We will probably be wrestling with choosing between three foot and onshore, choppy Constantine side or one to two feet of sharp and smart but real small Harlyn.
Nice to have a choice though!
I’m away for a few days as of today, so no surfcheck until next week!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well it couldn’t last forever and that gorgeous spell of proper summer weather seems to have now burned itself out.
In its place we can enjoy something more expected at this time of year with westerly onshore winds veering between south westerly and north westerly. And so, as well as the temperatures dipping a little, the main, more swell exposed surf breaks will likely be all choppy and sloppy and less inviting than they have been!
The surf should gradually build in size over the next few days though while the weather shouldn’t be all that bad either!
So during Friday we should see the one to two feet of choppy morning surf become a half decent three feet and bigger by the afternoon, allowing some small but maybe cleaner surf to get around and into Harlyn.
By Saturday we should be seeing some three to four feet of windswell rolling in, the wind from the north west, the swells no cleaner at our sheltered spots while not being big enough to ignite the far coasts. So it’s going to be a choice of surfing sloppy and choppy three to four footish surf at the main surf breaks or not going in at all!
By Sunday the two to three feet of weak and sloppy waves might be a little more enticing as the wind eases to a breeze and lighter by evening.
And then it looks as though offshores will return for Monday but with only a weak windswell rolling along, that wind might just blow those waves flat!
But it won’t be long before we see the waves getting bigger as a new low pressure system forms out in the Atlantic.
I’m away for a few days this weekend, so no surfcheck until next week!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
