At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
Brighter skies have returned after yesterday’s downpours, a fresh wind rustling the marram grass as it breezes in from the south west.
It is feeling chillier, which is about right with autumn knocking on our door but it is still pleasant enough.
Pleasant enough to enjoy the three feet or so of wind chopped and slopped junk surf that is tumbling ashore down in the bay, a Poldark backdrop maybe but not that inspirational if you’re looking for some surf to round off your holiday!
Still, there are waves and it is surfable, probably being more fun than you’d expect once you’re out there!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The sea is smooth at Harlyn this morning, small, glass-like waves folding themselves onto the sand as the tide eases its way out.
The breeze is offshore here and conditions are smooth and glassy but only tiny little waves are managing to get around and into the bay today.
The afternoon tide might just show a little more size but I can’t see it being any bigger than a foot or a foot and a half even then!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:36 (1.1m) High Tide: 17:31 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 30th August 2019
Blustery south westerly winds should be shoving some bigger windswell our way today, hopefully providing big enough waves to swing all the way around the headland and into Harlyn where they should smoothly fold their way to the sand.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A squally and damper, windblown weekend is waiting for us this weekend.
Autumn’s overexcited bluster is likely to be swirling and stirring a thick and lumpy four to five feet of windswell while shaking the hedgerows and blowing a confetti of leaves across the fields.
Harlyn should provide some fun on Friday and into Saturday but that wind will soon back more north westerly – onshore even at Harlyn.
So unless you want to travel south it will be a case of choosing the less choppy options that will change with tide and wind strength. Even so, by Sunday it will a complete paddleathon through four to six feet of onshore blown junk surf for short but maybe adrenaline charged drop-ins followed by very flat faced kick outs.
Ah, big and lumpy, chopped out windswell – you gotta love that!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
