At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A light sou’ wester is drifting across the bay this morning, gently tumbling those bundles of early morning cloud to the side leaving some wide blue bits of sky to contrast against the blackness of the horizon.
A foot or two of tired and weak looking little surf is collapsing ashore but it is still rideable, better on something big and buoyant but rideable nonetheless.
Yep, it looks like an okay day at the beach, not the greatest but just about okay.
And those surf sessions in that tiny, junky stuff often end up being way more fun than expected anyway.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
That mild sou’ westerly breeze is drifting offshore at Harlyn this morning, highlighting the tiny swell lines that have managed to swing all that way around the headland to eventually collapse onto the high tide bank.
There’s no surf to play in here today but the swimming is great!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 19th August 2020
As the wind starts to gust harder from the south west through the afternoon, the surf will start to show. Starting out slowly at only a foot or two at the main breaks, we should be seeing some small but surfable Harlyn waves by tea time!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A fun week of mixed weather and building surf should keep us entertained throughout this week as the weirdest summer holiday season ever slowly starts to come to a close.
Starting out with flat conditions, the breeze is likely to ease onshore and slowly strengthen through midweek, those weak and disorganised little windswells tumbling into each other before becoming more organised through the back half of the week.
And then we should see something more solid with waves getting into the ‘big’ category by week’s end!
Tuesday promises to be the most comfortable ‘beach’ day weather wise but overall, although we will see a mix of weather this week, it should be generally okay enough to hang out at the beach for most of the time.
So, wax the boards down, it’s all looking promising for some pumping waves (okay, dumping Harlyn then!) by the end of the week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
