At 5.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
There are some gaps in that leaden sky this morning but not many, the threat of a steady downpour hovering a moment away, a mild but damp feeling sou’ wester steadily blustering into the bays.
The surf is a bumpy three to four feet, Hilly out and getting a few tall enough peaks to properly drop in on before bouncing across the high tide wash.
It’s alright, not great but more alright than it has been for a while and it should pick up quite a bit on this afternoon’s tide too!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
Harlyn is a pleasant place to hang this morning, the south westerly wind brushing its way offshore against a fun looking two feet or so of very summery looking little surf.
With the swell on the rise this afternoon we could be enjoying a very pleasant summer surf around here by this evening!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:47 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:41 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 6th August 2020
Light, light breezes are going to be brushing again a reasonably solid four feet of rolling swell today.
If we’re lucky we could be enjoying some thick and lumpy, glassy swells at our main breaks with smaller but cleaner conditions at Harlyn and the other more sheltered spots.
Throw some brightening weather into the mix and we have the makings of a very pleasant day packed with surf along with some relaxing and shiny sunshine too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A breezy and unsettled week is going to start out with a continuation of those chilly north westerly winds of the weekend.
With only weak and bumpy little windswells washing ashore at the beginning of the week, there’s not going to be much quality surf to be found, although there should be plenty of little waves to play in for our visitors and beginners and those recreational surfers who should all enjoy these conditions.
The wind will soon back to the south west and start to push some thicker swells our way, Harlyn stretching and waking as we go into the middle of the week.
The lifeguards are going to get busier as those waves start to show just a little size through midweek, conditions improving as the wind eases its way to the south and then hopefully south easterly, if just for a moment toward week’s end.
If you’re on it we might just find some really decent surf at those magic spots during the back end of the week.
So, a mixed week of weather and surf should keep us on our toes, those magical moments of fun summer surf coming through only occasionally but definitely there.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
