A blustery south westerly wind is hurling itself into the bay this morning and piling in a whole heap of broken up surf with it.
There are some big waves crashing through the Quies, not that winter storm scale of big but big enough to re-sculpt the beach, which should end up being a good thing, there haven’t been any really fun banks out there for a little while now.
But, as for surfing here today, well you wouldn’t want to, there would just be an awful lot of paddling for no real return.
Harlyn on the other hand could just be very good! Let’s go see…..

Harlyn (4*):  3 to 4 feet and building

The first giveaway clue is the already half full car park!
Yep, there’s three to four feet of offshore sculpted, windswept and hollow, sandblasting waves driving onto the beach.
Right now there’s a lot of sand filled and churning peaks pushing in, the tide about halfway to a big high. So it’s going to build a bit yet and should get hollower on the drop as well.
Yep, I think that we can look forward to a day of three to five feet and hollow Harlyn.
In high summer!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 5th August 2015

Today is suddenly looking very promising!
The leftover swell from yesterday’s blow through should still be rolling in at three feet plus but that wind might (just might!) slip a few degrees to the east. And that would be enough to be offshore at all of our main surf breaks!
So there is a strong chance that we could just be surfing very pleasant three feet and offshore, peeling peaks all day long!
Maybe.
The weather might be a bit iffy though, although there should be some bright and sunny bits to it for a while at least.

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

Onshore winds are set to start the week off again, blowing in fresh from the South West pushing a building swell our way through Monday and into Tuesday, that swell maybe just nudging into the big range by Tuesday.
Harlan could just shine through Tuesday with brisk offshores shaping and holding those biggish waves as they navigate their way into Harlyn.
The weather is likely to be mixed but we should enjoy enough fine summer weather in amongst the more autumnal starts to the mornings to satisfy most.
Yep, Harlyn is likely to be the place to catch the best waves just as we go into this August, the wind staying onshore at all our other breaks and making for a bit of a mess there, while continuing to blow offshore here.
Although Wednesday could just turn out to be a good ‘un with smaller waves but maybe offshore winds shaping some nice surf at our preferred surf breaks.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
