At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
There’s a chill wind blustering into the bay this morning, that cold hand of Autumn slapping the summer warmed sea into a mixed up mess of grey and uninviting chop.
Wide stretches of blue are spreading through the grey sky though and that wind is forecast to ease too so we should see something better soon.
But as quickly as the wind drops so too will the wave size.
We’ll be back to wallowing in small junk surf soon enough!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
Small, dark waves are tumbling onto the low tide sand at Harlyn this morning as that cold nor’ wester blows into the bay. A couple of feet of dark and frothy little waves are hardly inviting but as the sun claws its way through and the wind strength decreases, we should see something much more welcoming!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:02 (2.2m) High Tide: 11:38 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 27th August 2020
The southerly breeze might just twitch to the south east through midday today allowing the two to three foot swell to blossom maybe.
Even if it doesn’t manage to back all the way to the south east that breeze should stay light enough to allow for mainly clean conditions at our main surf breaks.
We might even see a few stretches of sunshine in between some heavy showers!
So, a couple of fete of fun in the sun might be waiting!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
These breezy and blustery conditions are set to bother us for a while yet, the week starting out with westerly going south westerly winds pushing through a quickly growing and strengthening swell. We can expect some big waves to be beating down on our beaches by Tuesday, when Storm Francis produces a hard blowing sou’ wester sending everyone scuttling back to Harlyn for some shelter. Those waves are still likely to be booming in size around there all day long throwing plenty of big and board snapping grinders across from the Rock at lower tide.
North westerly breezes are going to mess things up during midweek, maybe allowing a little surfari over to the far coast where it could be quite pleasant in the offshore conditions that will be on offer.
And as quickly as the booming swell arrive, so it will be gone, leaving only tiny surf at Harlyn before the wind backs agin to the north west to slop everything out at week’s end.
So, a mixed up week of surf conditions is forecast for this week but if you’re keen and free to chase it you should get some pretty good sessions in, some big, some hollow but all of them fun!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
