At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of bumpy and sloppy, fairly typical midsummer surf is fumbling its way to the beach on a fairly typical overcast and breezy, lacklustre summer’s day.
The forecasts are full of promises of torrential rain for most of the day but I’m guessing that it might be more showery than continuous.
The wind is fairly light though and it is likely to drop to the south and west by this afternoon, just as the tide turns and helps the building swell.
What does all of that mean?
Harlyn this evening.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or maybe just about two of easy folding little waves are shimmying in on the high tide bank this morning, those small sets a long way apart from each other but clearly defined when they arrive.
We should see a slow and small increase in size as we go through this afternoon, along with a light windshift to the south west. And so I would expect this evening’s tide to be showing a very fun couple to three feet of nicely shaped (for Harlyn!) surf curling its way in!
Shame about the weather, although that might pick up by this evening too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:55 (1.4m) High Tide: 19:51 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 12th July 2017
Light breezes are going to be lightly smoothing the two to three feet of unsteady swell, having a cleaning effect as it breathes offshore from the north in the morning, being milder and just as smooth as it drifts still offshore but from the south east through the afternoon.
So, a pleasant and sunny summer’s day of small but clean and fun surf awaits!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The good news is that there should be waves throughout the week, the bit that we don’t want to hear is that the wind is likely to be fresh and onshore pretty much all week long!
The foot or two of north westerly breeze slopped surf of Monday is likely to increase ever so slowly as we go along, peaking at about three to four feet by late midweek, the wind staying steady and mainly from the west, although it will veer back and fore from the south west to the north west.
So that foot or two of crumbly and sloppy surf of the start of the week will become three to four feet of crumbly and sloppy surf through the back half of the week!
Our best hope for something better is during midweek when the breezes calm and switch to the north east and then the south east, offshore all along the coast. Throw in a couple of feet of fairly weak but very surfable swell and we have the chance of some fun times to be had!
Have a great week wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
