At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The sun is trying to sneak its way through those wandering clouds this morning while the breeze is light and gentle, the air mild and summer scented.
But the surf isn’t all that, a foot or maybe just a bit bigger of sloppy and weak looking little waves are wobbling ashore.
If you’re on holiday or just getting into it then today’s conditions will be great for you but for those summer crazed, surf-junky groms who are still off school, well, you’re going to have to make do again I’m afraid! But you rarely regret going in when conditions are weak although we often wish that we had gone in when we don’t!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is absolutely flat here again this morning, ripples of wavelets lightly slapping the hard sand of low tide.
If you want to play here today then you need to unpack the SUP or grab something real floaty for a paddle!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:44 (2.1m) High Tide: 11:20 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 16th August 2017
We might just see an increase in wave size later on today, that knee to waist high stuff just strengthening with the evening tidal push.
Otherwise the wind is likely to be fresh and from the south west, helping that swell on its way.
Harlyn by dark? Maybe but real small!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to continue to frustrate us for another week, our best hope for waves being those localised windswells generated by nearby squalls.
But at least there will be plenty of waves, even if they do continue to be those close-fetch and choppy little things, this week starting out at a couple of feet or so and building to three to four feet by midweek, getting bigger by week’s end.
And those winds aren’t likely to be that strong either, mainly light breezes gusting into fresh winds through the back half of the week.
So, another fun summer’s week of playful surf awaits, not those balmy summer days of our memories (they are waiting until next week!) but more of a casual fun week of play surfing most days!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
