At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
There’s a bit of a breeze blowing this morning and it is feeling almost chilly too! Well, the thermometer is reading 14 deg C but it feels cooler than that in the wind.
Either way there’s a brisk west north westerly blow chattering across the bay and making a mess of the two or maybe three feet of broken up and choppy little surf.
The sky is clearing quickly, shaking off the overnight clouds so it should be enjoyable out of the wind but the surf is going to be a little junky everywhere on this coast today.
It’s one of those days when you might have more fun riding a Beater of some type!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
That west north westerly wind is screeching in here this morning as well, making a mess of what tiny surf is managing to swing all that way around and into the bay.
The tide is dropping out and so having some effect too so I guess that it might all improve at least a little this afternoon on the incoming tide. But it is still going to be all choppy and messy.
Then again, you know what I think, Harlyn gives you a little more time when it’s onshore and junky!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:33 (1.5m) High Tide: 16:30 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 10th August 2018
Westerly going north westerly winds are going to junk out the two to three feet of close-fetch and already quite weak little swell.
Throw in enough mixed weather and it’s not looking too tempting.
But we will probably end up enjoying enough brightness and there will be some fun waves tucked away in the corners to ride with enthusiasm, so we could just end up enjoying a much a better time of it than the forecasts would have you believe!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Onshore winds are going to refresh the air as a low front moves our way through the end of this week.
Westerly winds will see the week out while at least blowing up a little extra surf our way, enough to get some little ones around to Harlyn at least.
And then we will be seeing a gusty sou’ wester pushing some thick and lumpy old swells our way all through the weekend.
And so we will be surfing Harlyn this weekend, hopefully getting up to three to four feet through Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning, getting bigger into the start of next week but the wind worsening then too.
So in the meanwhile it looks like a ‘Harlyn or not in’ kind of weekend, those waves eventually getting enough strength in them to be board snappingly hollow and promising loads of fun!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
