Surf Report for Tuesday 8th August 2017

At 6.10 a.m:  

Constantine (2*):  2 feet

A cold breeze is fluttering into the bay this morning, ruffling and crumbling the couple of feet of disconnected surf.
These north westerly winds seem to have been plaguing us all year, blowing that chilly air down from all the way up there, not helping any swells and making for choppy and sloppy conditions when those waves bother to actually break.
There are clear spaces between those threatening mountains of cloud that continue to drift along the coast, meaning that we should have some enjoyable weather for most of the time but with that threat of hard and heavy downpours never too far away!
So, we should be enjoying another day of surfing some sloppy and bumpy smallish waves with the chance of enjoying some pleasantly bright weather in amongst more heavy showers!  

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat  

Tiny little waves are washing along the high tide sand here this morning, sheltered from that north westerly breeze by the tide and so at least looking pretty.
But as the tide drops out those tiny waves will become even smaller while allowing the wind to ruffle and slop it all even more.
No, it’s the other side for a surf today and it’s not exactly great over there!  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:02  (1.2m)              High Tide:  18:57  (7.1m)

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 9th August 2017  

Those north westerly winds continue to blow down the coast, chopping and slopping the foot or two of weak and localised windswell.
Some showers will threaten the chilly but mainly clear weather while the surf continues to be just about okay.  

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

More onshore winds, mainly blowing from the north west along with small and localised little wind swells will continue the recent theme of lacklustre surf and mixed weather well into this week.
The weather should brighten up through midweek but that north westerly wind will keep temperatures feeling lower than they might be, all the time the surf staying in that two to maybe three feet at the biggest size range.
So, it’s not looking in any way great this week but there should be enough weather and waves to keep most of our visitors happy enough!
have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
