At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 feet.
Another chilly one is greeting us again this morning, that same brisk north, north westerly wind rattling into the bay all the way from up there in the cold bits. But the skies are clearing quickly enough and that sun will have enough power to heat things up to at least a pleasant level by the time most people are ready for it.
There’s some more wintery looking surf driving in as well with three to four feet or so of wind-warped but peaking, walling and curling, deep blue waves crashing and splashing into the bay. If only the winds were kinder!
But it is okay and should become more fun as the tide settles in to a neap low high.
Harlyn (1*): 2 feet.
A couple of feet and bigger of wind-slopped and chopped, foaming surf is washing along the sand here this morning, real small and real wind blown.
It should all increase slightly in size with the mid-morning tide but this wind is in for the day.
I’m always saying that Harlyn can be fun in an onshore but the other side is obviously bigger and might just be more fun too today with some screaming peaks marching in!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:21 (2.0m) High Tide: 10:06 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 10th August 2016
While that north westerly wind eases in strength again, it is continuing to blow in from the north west and so continuing to mess up the smaller surf.
We’ll be lucky to see much more than a foot or two of slopped out surf today!
It should be bright though!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Northerly winds are likely to plague us again as a thick and solid summer swell rolls our way to start the week. And those winds, although easing in strength, are likely to stay with us for most, if not all of the week.
But the weather should be just about okay for most of the time and the surf should be fun for most of the time as well, only gradually weakening off as the week rolls by.
These summer weeks are the ones when you hone your fitness levels and sharpen your reflexes by riding those unpredictable, windblown swells that are often twitchy and uncertain with bowling and intense little sections at the same time!
It is definitely worth having an appropriate extra board or two for these summer conditions!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
