At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 5 to 6 feet
The wind has eased overnight to a light sou’ westerly breeze this morning, that breeze just toppling the four to five feet of building swell as bumpy and lumpy, lightly slopped waves try to line themselves up in the bay.
This afternoon’s tide should show set waves getting into the ‘big’ size range with the sky remaining overcast, the threat of a shower or two ever present.
It does look like a beast of a paddle already and is likely to get tougher, so let’s have a look over at Harlyn……
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 4 feet
The lineup is already bustling over at Harlyn Bay on a grey and overcast morning, set waves teasing the crew into paddling inside before lumping in in long awaited groups of three.
Low tide is offering those swift slamming close-out tube chances – if you’re ready for them! But the rising tide should show an increase in size and offer just a little more time and shape to it all.
We should be in for a fun day of testing conditions today and it might be worth slopping a bit of suncream on too, we could just be enjoying some pleasant sunshine later!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 21:05 (2.0m) High Tide: 14:41 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 11th June 2022
South westerly winds will be driving a solid six foot swell onto our surf breaks today, those lumpy swells maxing out our main breaks, still chugging some beefy energy into the sheltered spots.
Harlyn is likely to be the ‘go to’ surf spot of choice today, with one or two of those other sheltered spots shining too, especially Sponge Central which should be peaking, pitching and peeling all morning!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Chunky swells are aiming our way for the weekend, driven by gusting but mild south westerly winds.
So Harlyn is going to be the place to grab a few chunky shutdown barrels, especially at low tide. The higher tide should offer a little more time and space but I’m guessing that we’ll be seeing a snapped board or two through Saturday, the wind switching westerly then north westerly by Sunday.
That will add some slop and chop to what were cleaner and sharper conditions on Saturday but will also allow more time to get into those wave too.
So a fun weekend of surf offering more testing conditions with some brighter weather too.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
