A cold and breezy, grey morning is waking us today, a little drizzle in the wind just to add a sting!
With single figure air temperatures and that west nor’ westerly wind making it feel chillier, it is a little more like winter than summer this morning but there are some splashes of blue in that otherwise fairly dull sky.
It might be a while before it brightens properly today!
The surf isn’t all that either!
A couple of feet of grey and sloppy stuff is washing in, unpredictable and choppy and small but there are waves and they are rideable and it is always better to get in than to not get in, isn’t it?

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

It’s flat around here this morning, as expected.
A few inches of wind chopped and sloppy little waves are washing ashore, the sea grey and the sky threatening. There’s a little drizzle in the air here too, stinging the facing and just adding a little discomfort but, as always, it is still keeps a beauty of its own, even when the wind is blowing and the showers are stinging!
But there is no surf to ride here today!

Surf Forecast for Friday 29th May 2015

Bigger waves should be rolling our way this morning, still localised and still short wave-period, still choppy and still sloppy but bigger!
The wind is likely to remain fresh and from the north west and so even though it should be bright enough, especially through the afternoon, it is going to feel chilly!

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

Onshore winds are likely to continue to plague us as this holiday week winds down.
Those north westerly winds are sliding across the bays bringing cold air to our shores, the showers stinging in that wind too.
The surf isn’t likely to be all that either, a couple of feet of sloppy and choppy stuff for most of the time, maybe getting up to three or occasionally four feet through the weekend.
The wind could just back to the south west through Saturday afternoon, only for a while but at least then Harlyn could have the opportunity to improve – if there’s enough power in the swell to push it all the way around the headland! There should be some small but clean surf there through Saturday afternoon though, small but cleaner and smarter.
Other than that it’s likely to be more mixed up and sloppy stuff to surf on, the sun shining for a lot of the time but the air feeling chill in this north westerly wind.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
