At 6 15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
A grey and threatening cloud cover might be promising a little downpour or two for us this morning but there’s nothing happening just yet.
The breeze is light, almost offshore, just feathering the three feet of matching dark waves that are folding themselves over the shallows of low tide Constantine.
It is kind of gloomy but it is also kind of cosy too and the sun will push through eventually but maybe not until this afternoon.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The southerly breeze is smoothing the sea at Harlyn this morning, a foot or two of satin surfaced little waves whip-cracking across the low Tide sand.
With a golden sunrise beaming through a sliver of a gap in the otherwise dense and dark cloud cover, it is all looking quite gorgeous and the sun should burst through proper by this afternoon.
But we will probably see a dark skied shower or two before then!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:25 (2.4m) High Tide: 12:50 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 28th August 2020
A stiff north westerly breeze is going to be chopping and slopping the expected three to four feet of summer swell at all of our breaks all day long.
With the sun making another slow start, there’s no need to rush at all today.
But the afternoon should provide some decent weather to motivate a three foot and junky surf session or two at any of the main breaks.
Surf Conditions for the Bank Holiday Weekend
We might just get away with an enjoyably pleasant bank holiday weekend this weekend with some okay weather mixed with almost offshore breezes to manicure the small but very rideable little surf.
The breeze is going to be from the north, hopefully north easterly for most of the time, maybe a little chillier than we’d like but also helping to smarten and smooth a fun little two to three foot swell.
Saturday might be more side shore than offshore but the surf should still be clean enough and bright enough to be pleasantly enjoyable, while Sunday is likely to be a little smaller but maybe a lot cleaner.
Monday is likely to be really small but with a more southerly south easterly breeze to warm things up and smooth out that tiny surf.
So, all in all we can expect a pleasant enough weekend for the grand finale to a slightly surreal season.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
