At 5.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
Cold air is screeching down the coast from the north west this morning, the early morning light flat and shadowless, making for a grey and moody sea.
A couple of feet or so of battleship grey waves are sloshing into the bay, all a little weak looking and shapeless as they shuffle onto the sand.
High tide should show some kind of improvement and it should be warmer too but it is still going to be more paddling than surfing.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The tiny looking waves at Harlyn might be being a little deceptive this morning, that cold wind is whistling onshore and bouncing those windswells into something maybe just a bit bigger than they look.
But it does look tiny!
Still, the sun is trying to warm up, the air is dry and maybe the midday high tide will show some more rideable surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:31 (2.0m) High Tide: 12:08 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 29th July 2020
Light breezes, sunshine and small, small waves are expected today – it must be summer!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The jet stream seems to have slipped down to the south of us for a while and that’s going to let a few fronts gallop through bringing a little dampness and some blustery onshore wind to start the week.
Monday might well be spent over at Harlyn in smaller waves on the incoming tide, those waves being much cleaner than most of the other breaks, hopefully a foot or two of fun little snappers in summer temperature waters.
But that wind is likely to be north westerly by Tuesday, onshore everywhere and making for chillier temperatures as well. Then again, as I’m always saying, Harlyn can be fun when it’s onshore there, you have more time to get into the wave than when it’s steaming offshore. We’ll have to wait and see if the swell is big enough though to swing all the way around Trevose Head and then find its way into the bay.
But by midweek the wind should have calmed before easing offshore for the end of the week.
So we should be back to our favourite little surf breaks to catch a short but building swell through Thursday and into Friday.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
