At 5.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A bright and cheerful, cloud-free sky is covering the bays this morning promising warmer for later after this clear but chilly start to the day.
The surf isn’t great, there are little waves tumbling onto the high tide banks but there’s not much over waist high coming through and it is all a little crumbly and fat looking. That should sharpen up as the tide drops away, although the breeze is set to remain onshore.
But after saying all that, it is a beautiful day and there are waves, so grab a floaty surfboard and go have yourself some fun!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
The sun is shining brightly over Harlyn this morning, lighting the golden sand and brightening the turquoise sea. The girls of the early morning swim group must be loving the increase in water temperature, a balmy 15 deg C rewarding their keenness, 3 times the warmth of their winter adventures!
But there’s not much surf happening, a foot or so of crumbly and sloppy little waves are reluctantly slopping ashore, the very light onshore breeze showing its effect.
It’s the other side of the headland again for some surf today and it’s not exactly spinning through over there!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:09 (1.2m) High Tide: 17:04 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th June 2021
We should see more brightness once the early morning gloom and murk has lifted but there is that little front hovering just over there so we might see a little cloud here and there too.
The surf is likely to be small again with only a foot or two of fairly weak stuff expected but there should still be enough to provide a bit of fun!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A little low front is likely to skip along the bottom end of the county as we hurtle headlong through the summer solstice this week, the grim and murky Monday morning weather not lasting too long before the return of much more ‘summery’ weather by Tuesday.
The jet stream pattern still has that annoying rollercoaster-like dip to it, allowing those brisk, more northerly winds to chill their way down the coast. At least that wind should stay just about offshore for the first half of the week, helping to smooth and shape the dropping swell. A dropping swell maybe but it should still be very surfable all the way through.
So Monday’s disgusting weather and great surf will soon be replaced by much brighter and clearer weather but with smaller surf, a foot or two of clean and sunny surf attracting the gliders and drifters on Tuesday.
And that’s the way it’s likely to stay all week long, a foot or two of graceful little surf with the breeze becoming lighter as we go along.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
