At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
There’s a dark sky weighing heavily out over the ocean this morning but the birdsong is loud in the bright sunshine on land – so far.
Tiny little swell lines are being softened in the super high tide depths as a light north easterly breeze drifts offshore, probably a foot or maybe two of deep water hidden surf, ready to peel and curl when the tide drops back.
We are likely to enjoy a shower or two before that sunshine takes more control again but that’s welcome to the farmers and gardeners, as long as they are only showers!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
A tiny wash is whooshing across the sand ahead of another super deep high tide approaching at Harlyn this morning, a watery rhythm to back the birdsong lead.
It is quiet and peaceful here again at the moment but I guess that will quickly change as the holiday weekend is gratefully enjoyed by more than a few lockdown escapees.
Let’s hope that the weather stays kind to everyone!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:12 (0.4m) High Tide: 20:04 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 30th April 2021
A light north easterly breeze is likely to be drifting offshore again this morning, only backing to the north west as the sea breeze effect takes over at lunchtime. And so those tiny waves should be clean and peeling in the morning and again in the evening, those small or maybe tiny waves just about longboardable.
We are likely to be enjoying plenty of sunshine again today, in readiness for the relaxing holiday Weeknd ahead!
Surf Conditions for the Holiday Weekend
A weekend of small waves, loads of sunshine and chilly northerly breezes is waiting for us this Bank Holiday Weekend.
With only small and weak little swells rolling our way, we are going to have to time the tide and breezes to get the most out of those little waves. As the tide eases over those shallow spots we should be able to enjoy knee to waist high little peelers as they are tripped up into something worth riding but as those deeper patches are entered then the waves will all but disappear.
That summer pattern of offshore breezes in the morning with onshore sea breezes through the afternoon before the evening glass-off will be replaced through Sunday as the breeze settles more onshore, starting to puff a bit on Bank Holiday Monday. And then we will see a proper weather change as something more damp and breezy takes control.
But before that you might want to pack your sunscreen, wax your favourite small wave boards and kick back and enjoy a lazy and sunny Bank Holiday Weekend!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
