At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet.
Well the temperature this morning is almost half of that of this time last week and conditions are matching exactly that.
It’s a wet ’n breezy, murky and chilly start to the day, a dull and dreary canopy of damp clouds smothering the whole parish and beyond.
And so the surf is a junked out two to three feet of wind bounced and lumpy, straggly little waves. The wind is straight onshore, a brisk west sou’ wester filled with chilly dampness, blowing just hard enough to make a mess of the surf zone.
Still, at least it’s not flat.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot.
It is pretty much flat around here this morning, the conditions way cleaner and smoother than the other side of the headland but really very small.
Almost a foot of smooth and glassy, tiny little wavelets are splashing ashore just an hour after low tide, offering some hope that it might just build, if only a little, as the tide pushes in.
At least conditions are smooth and pretty around here compared to the other side’s sloppy choppiness.
It could just be that fun-on-a-longboard kind of surf here in a couple of hours, we hope!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:01 (1.7m) High Tide: 10:40 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 27th July 2016
And more of the same!
Two to three feet of choppy and sloppy, weak windsurf is about as much as we can hope for today, the wind steadily gusting in from the west nor’ west and so all chilly and damp too.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Steady onshores are going to breeze our way through this week, that same rolling three foot swell being delivered into our bays and coves in a tired and confused lump of surf.
Our main surf breaks on the more western facing beaches are likely to be showing three feet of sloppy and bumpy surf for most of the time and that’s where the action will be for most of this week, the surf being too weak to get into our more sheltered spots.
A week of mixed weather conditions awaits too but it should be mostly pleasant enough to enjoy some fun times at the beach but don’t forget to take your waterproofs as well!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
