At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
A fussing west sou’ westerly is pushing and jostling the four or five feet of tired looking and chopped out surf on another wet ‘n windy morning down in the bay.
Theses conditions are probably as calm and settled as we are going to see this week but it’s still not looking exactly pleasant out there.
Harlyn (2*): 3 to 5 feet
Three or four feet of hard dumping surf can just be seen through the murk of another heavy downpour at Harlyn this morning with only the occasional dog walker fleeing for shelter as their pooch shakes it off to be seen on the beach and a handful of early bird surfers taking the odd freight train right off the Rock into the main beach shore dump.
It’s hardly the stuff of dreams but it should all improve and we will be seeing offshore hollowed and testing waves chunnelling into the bay soon enough.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:57 (1.9m) High Tide: 09:35 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th February 2022
Forty mile an hour north westerly winds will be chopping and blowing the building surf today with an expected ten feet plus of windblown and out of control waves expected at all of our surf breaks locally.
Unless you’re heading to the south coast today you might want to find something else to do!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Stormy, onshore winds are going to dominate the headlines again this week as that jet stream tows a bunch more weather systems our way for a good while to come!
So, howling onshores will wreak havoc along our already battered little coastline all week long, the wind veering to north west through midweek and so adding some cold, cold temperatures to the mix.
If you are fit, trained and keen to get amongst it then with a bit of goose chasing around the Duchy, you should find one of those occasionally breaking ‘mysto‘ spots to surf at, you know, one of those breaks that are usually discussed in hushed tones well after the event, usually down a track, across a creek, around a headland and then only at the exact right time of tide with just the right size of swell and a very precise wind direction.
Other than that it will mainly be a week of dodging death defying dumpers at most of our preferred surf spots!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
