At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
The ominous buzz and thump of the Search and Rescue crew is filling the bay this morning as they coordinate with the coastguards in an early morning incident, the westerly breeze light, the air filled with mizzle and gloom but the temperatures reassuringly mild.
Not knowing any details, we can only hope for a quick and successful outcome to their efforts, whatever the situation.
In the meantime there’s three feet or so of rolling and lumpy, lightly chopped swell rolling into the bay, very surfable but with a bit of a paddle as the cost.
The skies should brighten by lunchtime hopefully and that always makes it look better than it might be.
But, as always, take it easy out there! #respectthewater
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A couple to almost three feet of lightly bumped, almost sloppy but fun looking surf is rolling onto the pre-high tide bank at Harlyn this morning.
The wind is just a little too fresh and just a little too westerly to allow it to be great but I’m sure that once you get in amongst the mizzle and drizzle and murk of a more autumnal early morning, you would probably have a really fun time.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:43 (0.6m) High Tide: 08:20 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 15th August 2018
The wind is likely to be more south westerly today, that same rolling three foot swell bumping its way along the coast.
So we will probably have that choice again today as to whether to surf a lumpy and bumpy, crumbly three foot Constantine or smaller but cleaner, sharper Harlyn.
It’s always nice to have a choice though, eh!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to blow all week long, those brisk westerlies backing south westerly through midweek before sliding more north westerly for the end of the week.
And that same lumpy and bumpy, mainly wind driven swell should drive our way all week long, reaching four to five feet here and there, dropping to two to three feet for periods as well.
With plenty of brighter stretches this week as well as the odd shower, it’s looking like a pleasant enough week weatherwise with enough surf to suit most too with Harlyn offering smaller but cleaner and more manageable conditions for the school holiday groms and this side offering some big and bumpy drops if you’d prefer!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
