At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
A steady west sou’ westerly wind is producing a bright ‘n breezy kind of morning this morning, the sky gradually becoming bluer as those fresh gusts push big bundles of clouds onto the rest of the country.
And there’s a couple of feet of windblown and choppy but still fun looking surf bumping into our bays with the promise of a gradual increase in size for later.
Yep, it’s a fresher morning with a relative hint of autumn to it but no worse for that after the last few weeks of warmth.
Harlyn (0*): 1 foot
That west sou’ westerly wind is managing to stay offshore here this morning, hollowing and bowling the foot or so of frustratingly small surf.
The tide will be turning in a couple of hours and so we should see some improvement as it rises, especially as the swell should be building too. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see some fun surf here through midday and into early afternoon.
It might be small but it could just be really fun, maybe!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Thursday 9th August 2018
North westerly winds are going to chop and slop the two to three feet of close-fetch surf all day long today!
Add that to the overcast weather and we are looking at a little memory taster of last winter’s tedious conditions!
Still, that should allow us to catch up on all those things that were put on the back boiler while conditions were good this last few weeks!
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
Onshore winds are going to refresh the air as a low front moves our way through the end of this week.
Westerly winds will see the week out while at least blowing up a little extra surf our way, enough to get some little ones around to Harlyn at least.
And then we will be seeing a gusty sou’ wester pushing some thick and lumpy old swells our way all through the weekend.
And so we will be surfing Harlyn this weekend, hopefully getting up to three to four feet through Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning, getting bigger into the start of next week but the wind worsening then too.
So in the meanwhile it looks like a ‘Harlyn or not in’ kind of weekend, those waves eventually getting enough strength in them to be board snappingly hollow and promising loads of fun!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
