It’s a wet and windy, wild old morning out there right now, a screeching westerly gale blasting into the bay and flattening the already messed up junk surf.
Heavy squalls are unleashing short burst of torrential downpours but gaps in those dark and brooding cloud banks promise at least brighter if not calmer conditions. It’s a day to find other things to do, surfing not being a fun option, well not here at least.

Harlyn (1*):  0 to 1 foot

The wind is a little too westerly to allow clean conditions here this morning, well, I say wind but I mean gale!
It is blowing hard across the bay.
But the surf is pretty tiny too anyway, so unless the wind blows up some more swell, which it should do, then there are other things to do.
It should be worth a little look bak later though, maybe this afternoon’s tide will show some more size. And by then the wind should have settled to the south west, offshore here.
Yep, it could just be a different world around here by early afternoon!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 6th May 2015

More strong onshores are expected throughout today, maybe not that violent stuff of Tuesday but still more than strong enough to be annoying.
So, westerly winds are going to be blasting the surf into an angry wash at all of the main surf breaks, maybe being just a bit more attractive at Harlyn or other sheltered breaks but still not all that wonderful;.
So, our best bet is a windy Harlyn afternoon of four feet of windswept surf.
Which will seem more okay if it stays bright!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

A non-event of a weekend should give way to something stormier, wetter and windier than it has been as more fronts cascade over us. Gale and storm force westerly going south westerly winds are likely to settle in for most of the rest of the week, bringing with it a mix of messy and then okay going messy again every few hours weather.
But the surf should be bigger too.
After a slow start through Tuesday, we should eventually see Harlyn starting to show what it can offer with a decent three to four feet plus of thick and rolling surf around there for at least a few days.
There could be moments of clean conditions on both sides but they are likely to be short-lived and brief little encounters mainly in the early morning or late evening. But if you are on it, you could just find a few surprise sessions in amongst the mixed conditions of this coming week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
