At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Dark clouds are hugging the far horizon this morning, the south westerly breeze only light so not pushing that darkness this way very quickly. But that might be only temporary.
It is actually quite bright above us but that backdrop is promising dreary for later.
In the meantime the surf is a bit of a mess, three feet and maybe bigger of wind slopped and messy, bumbling waves are stumbling into the bay on the dropping tide, not quite sure as to where to break and with barely the energy to bother anyway.
With the wind forecast to swing to the north west by this afternoon we will be lucky to find any clean conditions along this coast later on!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The breeze is offshore at Harlyn this morning allowing for smooth glass conditions. And the odd set of one to two foot waves are managing to swing all the way around the headland to find their way onto the hardened sand.
But you do have to wait for them!
The incoming tide should improve things but then of course the wind is forecast to swing onshore at just about the same time!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:41 (1.6m) High Tide: 16:37 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 29th August 2019
Westerly winds will be pushing nothing more than sloppy wind swell our way today, a couple to three feet of dishevelled and weakish, junky surf being the best that we can hope for. Harlyn should be cleaner but very, very small!
The weather should brighten up though and that always makes it all that little more appealing!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It might just feel like the end of summer this week as the beaches quieten and our visitors gradually disappear to ready themselves for work and school and college and travels, the sun struggling a little more through the gradually increasing cloud cover, the wind more noticeable as we go through the week too.
Tuesday’s pleasant brightness and fun little surf is likely to turn into something more overcast and less attractive by midweek, the surf being blown about a bit more by North westerly winds through the afternoon.
Westerly, going south westerly winds will make a mess of the two to three feet of sloppy junk surf through most of the back half of the week but there should be those little sessions opening up when tide and wind and swell conspire to provide some steeper and more fun little peaks and wedges to bounce around on.
So a mixed old week to wind down the summer holidays on but with plenty of opportunities to eek out some fun surf sessions still!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
