At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
Thick and threatening clouds are covering us completely this morning, a fresh breeze blowing in off the sea, strong enough to ruffle the hedgerows and sway those leaf heavy trees.
Three to four feet of wind ruffled and tussled, grey and choppy surf is lazily rolling into the bay, that south westerly wind just strong enough to make a mess of it all.
It might just all improve as the tide eases its way back out in a couple of hours and it will be even more appealing if the sun comes out too but right now it is all a bit of a slopped out mess.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Harlyn can shine even on an overcast and breezy, dull kind of morning and this morning is one of those. It is dull and overcast and breezy this morning but it is also relaxing and cosy and pleasant at Harlyn.
And there’s a foot or two of sharp and crisp but small waves walling up and peaking before zipping across the hardened sand. It should improve a ittle in size as the tide fills in as well before slackening but just a little on the dropping tide again.
Yep, it could just be some fun today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:24 (0.8m) High Tide: 09:01 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 16th August 2018
The wind could be annoying today.
We should be seeing some bigger surf in the morning with a thick and rolling four feet and bigger of more autumn like swell rolling our way. But the wind is likely to be westerly or west nor’ westerly and strong enough to make a sloppy mess of it all.
Even Harlyn is likely to be a little sloppy today but then I always think that Harlyn can be fun in an onshore, it gives you just that little more time to get into them before closing out!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Onshore winds are going to blow all week long, those brisk westerlies backing south westerly through midweek before sliding more north westerly for the end of the week.
And that same lumpy and bumpy, mainly wind driven swell should drive our way all week long, reaching four to five feet here and there, dropping to two to three feet for periods as well.
With plenty of brighter stretches this week as well as the odd shower, it’s looking like a pleasant enough week weatherwise with enough surf to suit most too with Harlyn offering smaller but cleaner and more manageable conditions for the school holiday groms and this side offering some big and bumpy drops if you’d prefer!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
