At 5.55 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s a lazy one this morning – again.
The lightest of southerly breezes is whispering across the bay beneath a blue ribboned silver sky, tiny little waves slipping onto the high tide bank and sliding off that peak by the rip.
The wind is likely to strengthen gradually through this afternoon, a gusting sou’ wester blowing some more waves our way for this evening.
In the meantime, grab the longboards and go slide a few!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
All is quiet over at Harlyn this morning, a peaceful silver sea settling still at high tide, the darker headlands snuggly cwching the ocean.
There’s no surf, not a ripple at high water but that will change.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:10 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:04 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 5th August 2020
Three to four feet of mainly wind swell will be steadily pushed our way by a damp sou’ westerly wind, maybe managing to swing some waves around and into Harlyn. Not big or anywhere near it but maybe just big enough to nip and tuck on a few off the Rock.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
A breezy and unsettled week is going to start out with a continuation of those chilly north westerly winds of the weekend.
With only weak and bumpy little windswells washing ashore at the beginning of the week, there’s not going to be much quality surf to be found, although there should be plenty of little waves to play in for our visitors and beginners and those recreational surfers who should all enjoy these conditions.
The wind will soon back to the south west and start to push some thicker swells our way, Harlyn stretching and waking as we go into the middle of the week.
The lifeguards are going to get busier as those waves start to show just a little size through midweek, conditions improving as the wind eases its way to the south and then hopefully south easterly, if just for a moment toward week’s end.
If you’re on it we might just find some really decent surf at those magic spots during the back end of the week.
So, a mixed week of weather and surf should keep us on our toes, those magical moments of fun summer surf coming through only occasionally but definitely there.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
