At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
Rainbows, clouds, sunshine and heavy, heavy showers are filling the bay this morning, the wind a whole lot calmer than yesterday, the horizon as dark as Mordor but the sky above streaked with blue.
The breeze is light, still from the north west, still onshore, still chopping and slopping the small and lazy surf.
A foot or two of choppy, sloppy and grey surf is bouncing ashore, its only attraction being the warm water temperature (20 deg C) maybe tempting you in if you have a ‘beater’ or other foamy to ride!
We fell for a scam mail last Friday resulting in our losing ALL of our emails (yep, all of them going back to the very beginning of time!).
So if you have emailed us at any time up until lunchtime on the 26th July and are wondering why we haven’t bothered replying, well, we haven’t got it!
And if any of our suppliers are looking at this, well we don’t have your invoices, promos or delivery slips either. So if you could just pop us a copy sometime that would be luvverly!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The breeze is still strong enough to slop and chop the tiny surf at Harlyn this morning with rainbows brightening the bay but dark cloud banks loitering just over there too.
With barely a foot of choppy and broken surf tumbling into the bay, there are better places to go for a surf than here today but then again you will probably find a few bouncy ones to bump across if this is your only option!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:51 (1.2m) High Tide: 17:45 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 1st August 2019
Light onshore breezes shouldn’t have too much of an effect on the two feet or so of swell that we are expecting to slide through on a sunnier and milder day today. But that breeze is still from the north west and so is likely to just take the edge off what would otherwise be very pleasant temperatures.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Although clean and offshore conditions are going to start the week, we will soon be plagued by those irritating north westerly winds again.
Blowing onshore but from the wrong direction, north westerly winds are no good to man nor beast (well surfer beast anyway)! They don’t do much to push up the surf and they chop and slop what little waves that there are at all of our surf breaks. They are chilly too!
So the small surf and super clean conditions of Monday will soon be replaced by gusting and cooler onshores by Tuesday, that wind strengthening as the day goes on.
The wind should ease as we go into midweek maybe allowing the surf conditions to clean up a little for Wednesday evening’s tide and with only light breezes expected for Thursday.
So a blustery and mixed week is waiting but there should be enough sunshine and dryness to keep the holiday makers happy enough.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
