At 6 25 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet.
It’s a fabulous start to the day – so far!
But just over there half the sky is dark and brooding and bleak and maybe aiming this way!
But in the meantime the breeze is light and the air is mild and the surf is rolling ashore.
Three to four feet of deep blue and fresh looking waves are rearing up before sloshing ashore all spent and weary in the onshore breeze that is just strong enough to bully it in.
Ah, it could be so good – but it isn’t!
Conditions might deteriorate quite quickly as the tide drops and pulls against the swell while that onshore breeze becomes a wind but equally it should all improve on this afternoon’s tide again, the weather brightening as the tidal push gives the surf some extra oomph.
It should be worth a wet at some age this afternoon!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet.
A couple of feet of slow and lazy looking surf is wandering to the beach as the tide eases its way off that high tide bank.
The wind is calm and breezing across the bay, not a cleansing offshore but not completely an onshore wave wrecker either.
There’s a couple of feet of fun surf to be ridden, deteriorating as the tide recedes but hopefully improving considerably through this afternoon’s rising tide too.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:10 (1.3m) High Tide: 19:03 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 22nd June 2016
A couple to three feet of surf should be cresting our way through today, the breeze lightening as the day goes on and backing around to maybe (hopefully!) an offshore south south easterly by the evening’s high tide.
Yes we should be enjoying some clean and fun but maybe smaller than we would choose little waves all day long, improving in shape as the day goes on!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A new three foot or bigger, teen sized wave-period swell should push through to start this week, the wind onshore but relatively light.
Light winds will drift onshore as the week unfolds, that swell keeping up its steady but smaller, two to three feet rhythm as it pours our way.
The weather is likely to continue to be mixed but should settle as the breeze eases more to the south through midweek.
We might just be enjoying some small but super clean conditions by Wednesday and the end of the week is starting to look bright and cheerful with the promise of small but cleaner surf.
But that is a long way off yet.
In the meantime it looks like we have a few days of fairly typical British summer surf to play in!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
