Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
A noisy west sou’ westerly wind is howling into the bays this morning, shovelling four or five feet and bigger of windswept and tossed and turned, broken waves ahead of itself.
It’s a wet and stormy, wild morning best kept for indoor fun maybe.
But let’s have a little look at Harlyn first?
And we are LOOKING FOR STAFF!
This could be your chance to join or even lead the Constantinesurf team!
Shout if you think you’re good enough:
STORE MANAGER – experienced, capable, used to hardwork and with a passion for the sea!
ASSISTANT MANAGER – this could be seen as a step-up for someone taking a career approach to surf retailing. You would be helping the Store Manager while looking after the rest of the shop crew.

We look forward to meeting you!
(Proud to be a Living Wage Employer).
Harlyn (2*): 3 – 4 feet
It’s a contrast to those carpark-packed days of summer as that screeching west sou’ westerly wind shrieks across a deserted Harlyn Bay this morning, whisking mini sand devils across the rises.
It’s cold and noisy and the surf is bumpy and lumpy but just occasionally there’s a smoking three or four foot right-hander screaming off the Rock.
I guess that it will all depend on how good your wetsuit is and how keen you are feeling today!?
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Thursday 17th February 2022
More howling westerly winds are going to be blowing mountainous waves our way all day long today.
It’s promising to be a big, bad and stormy one today.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We are enjoying a week of strong onshores this week, a cold and irritating nor’ westerly to start the week, backing a degree or two to the west or west south west through midweek but straying back to the north west for moments, mainly during the afternoons.
So, our best chance of any reasonable surf this week will be a few short sessions at Harlyn at those times when the wind backs to the west or south west but it’s going to take some effort (or luck!) to pick those right moments.
The surf won’t be that big at the start of the week but these hard blowing winds will soon push up the swells, showing som big waves through the back half of the week.
The south coast should have some fun surf, again especially through the back half of the week but that is going to be a matter of timing to get it right as well!
Still, there are plenty of waves due this week, so if you can tuck yourself out of the wind you should enjoy a good session or two!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
