At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 1 to 2 feet
It’s a bit of a dreary one out there this morning, a blustering sou’ wester fussing its way into the bay, ruffling and slopping the foot or two of weak surf.
The sky is trying to brighten, promising better for later maybe but the surf is looking a bit junky.
It might be worth a splash about on a longboard ahead of high tide but that’s about it.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is pretty peaceful this morning, the breeze rustling offshore to meet an almost flat sea beneath another leaden sky.
Those tiny little wavelets are shimmering glass but are pretty much unrideable.
The pushing tide might shove an inch or two extra into the bay but it’s still going to be tiny at best. Brighter and cheerier maybe but almost flat.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 21:25 (1.8m) High Tide: 14:55 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 2nd July 2020
West nor’ westerly breezes are going to slop and mess the still small and weak surf while keeping the air temperatures lower too.
We might see a bit of sunshine through the afternoon again which always cheers the surf up but it is going to have to work hard to make it attractive enough!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
There is a certain irony about the way that the weather has behaved during the whole ‘lockdown’ saga. And now it is seemingly having a little chuckle to itself as we all come tentatively crawling out of self-isolation.
After weeks and months of fine and settled, hot and sunny weather, yes we are about to be blown and shaken by blustering onshore winds. And those winds are going to be dragging some heavy showers with them throughout this week!
So, those damp westerly winds are going to be blowing hard into the start of the week, backing sou’ westerly as we go into midweek, twitching a little north westerly maybe through Thursdayish before settling to the south west for a hard blow to end the week.
If you like biggish and lumpy, windswept surf this is going to be your week! And if you prefer something a bit shapelier and snappier then you’re going to be spending a lot of time surfing Harlyn this week.
And even over there it’s going to be a little lumpy and bumpy to start with.
But with water temperatures rising, a consistent three feet plus of rolling swell pushing along the coast and the weather offering a few bright moments here and there, what’s not to like!?
We can be surfing all day every day in these conditions!
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
