At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 feet
A vast blue sky is covering us again this morning, the air still, the sunshine as bright as can be, temperatures rising already.
And the surf looks fun too!
A couple of feet of lightly crumbled surf is trying to break in the depths of a too high tide, promising some pleasant surf conditions for later. Give it an hour or so for the tide to drop out and we should be enjoying some smooth faced and fun little peelers for the rest of the day, getting bigger with this afternoon’s incoming tide.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
Frustratingly small little waves are trying hard to break on the high tide bank at Harlyn this morning, that deep blue sky and golden sand acting as a beautiful backdrop to almost surf.
Almost but not quite!
Give it an hour or so and those tiny little waves will become snappier but even smaller. Give it a few more hours and we should see some kneehigh and snappy little waves reeling off the Rock, probably as the tide rolls in through late afternoon.
In the meantime, what a fabulous place to paddle!

Surf Forecast for Friday 27th July 2018
Ah, are you ready for a change in the weather?
Well at least we should see some more surf!
Three fete of lightly bumped and slopped surf will roll our way with a light onshore breeze gently carrying more cloud our way than we have seen for a long time.
And then of course, well we could enjoy some of the wet stuff to keep our grasslands happy!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend.
A low front is likely to push our way as we go into this weekend, that calm and settled bright and sunny weather finally giving way to something a little more unsettled, a little more as expected for the summer holidays maybe?!
But the surf should roar into life and it’s not all bad news; yes, there will be the threat of marauding showers and the temperatures are likely to ease back several degrees but there should still be enough brightness to keep most beachgoers happy and the surf should be pounding in too!
So Saturday is going to see three to four feet and bigger of onshore wind chopped surf, all blown around by a brisk westerly wind. That wind will keep any showers moving along though, not allowing them time to settle for too long.
And with that growing swell and west wind, Harlyn should wake up and show us that we can get some fun surf there, even in summer.
Three feet of crunchy, folding waves are likely to be crashing onto the sand as the Spring tide rushes in through the afternoon.
By Sunday the surf should be grinding its way onto our coast, four to five feet of windblown and angry waves should be pounding ashore all day long.
The wind should ease to the south west, making Harlyn the ‘go-to’ spot locally.
Three to four feet of board snapping fun should be had here today, especially on the afternoon tide again!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
