At 6.00 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 feet
A fresh and sunny, clear skied and beautiful morning is spreading along the coastline this morning as a light breeze carries that lighter birdsong of summer along with the more pungent aroma of freshly spread silage. Ah, the pleasures of Summer in the country.
And there’s surf!
Three to four feet and bigger of mixed and messed, lumpy and bumpy stuff is stuttering its way to the beach that light west sou’ westerly breeze just strong enough to make a lumpy mess of it all.
But it’s a nice day and it’s good to get some paddling practice in, as well as having the chance to actually drop in on a few chunkier ones.
But Harlyn is probably going to be better…..
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
The summer sunlight of a pleasantly blue skied early morning is shining on a fairly clean looking two to three feet of inconsistent but fun looking little surf.
Half a dozen are out already and getting some set waves under their belt before work or play or whatever.
This lumpy swell seems to be happily rolling our way and there’s no reason to think that it will change any time soon allowing you to plan your day around it.
The morning’s dropping tide will maybe reduce the size a little and the low tide crunchiness of Harlyn is always fun while the afternoon’s rising tide should provide plenty of wave action for everyone!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:36 (1.4m) High Tide: 08:18 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 1st August 2018.
A light but steady south westerly wind is likely to be jostling along the three to four foot swell again today, making for mixed and lumpy conditions at the main surf breaks but allowing Harlyn to shine in that high summer sun.
Another fun day of pleasant three foot surf is likely to keep us preoccupied over at Harlyn all day long again today!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
South westerly going westerly winds are going to dominate the start of this week with four to five feet or so of wind driven swell pushing along the coast.
Monday will probably see the biggest conditions in amongst the wind and rain of an Atlantic low pressure system, the main beaches being blown out but Harlyn, as always, stepping up and offering some fun and offshore shaped three foot barrels.
And that will take us well into the middle of the week when the sun should settle back in and the wind should start to ease off. Wednesday will probably be a more relaxing day at Harlyn before making the return to our main, more swell exposed surf breaks for the back half of the week.
And the back half of this week could just see a return to those small but idyllic conditions again!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
