At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The breeze is still cooling things down as it drifts its way down the coast from the north north east on this Bank Holiday Sunday morning but the sky is quickly brightening and lightening, the threat of more downpours gradually slipping away.
And so, amongst the rainbows and sunbeams of a more autumnal morning, a couple of feet or so of still dark and brooding but smoother surf is peaking over the shallows on the dropping tide.
It should all improve as the day rolls along but the surf is unlikely to build much at all.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
That north easterly breeze is straight onshore at Harlyn this morning, mixing and chopping the tiny little wavelets that are bouncing around on the shoreline.
Those little waves are barely rideable, the other side is the place to aim for a surf today and it’s pretty small over there but, as always, it has its own special beauty here today as well.
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Bank Holiday Monday 31st August 2020
As our happy little visitors all pack up to leave at the end of one of the strangest summer seasons, the breeze is forecast to back to the south east, a drier and milder direction than that annoying northerly of the weekend.
The surf is unlikely to be no bigger than waist high on this August Bank Holiday Monday but it should be smooth and bright and sunny and fun with those sea breezes kicking in onshore by the afternoon.
Surf Conditions for the Bank holiday Weekend.
We might just get away with an enjoyably pleasant bank holiday weekend this weekend with some okay weather mixed with almost offshore breezes to manicure the small but very rideable little surf.
The breeze is going to be from the north, hopefully north easterly for most of the time, maybe a little chillier than we’d like but also helping to smarten and smooth a fun little two to three foot swell.
Saturday might be more side shore than offshore but the surf should still be clean enough and bright enough to be pleasantly enjoyable, while Sunday is likely to be a little smaller but maybe a lot cleaner.
Monday is likely to be really small but with a more southerly south easterly breeze to warm things up and smooth out that tiny surf.
So, all in all we can expect a pleasant enough weekend for the grand finale to a slightly surreal season.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
