At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 5 to 6 feet
A gusty southerly breeze is blustering across the bay beneath a threatening blanket of grey this morning, the occasional majestic six foot wave standing tall before folding and spinning its way to the beach.
It’s a bumpy sea and it’s still chilly for a lengthy paddle-out but there are the occasional whompers coming through, so if that’s your favourite way to start the week then here is your playground!
But there will be better breaking spots both up and down the coast.
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
That southerly wind is gusting straight offshore at a deserted early morning Harlyn, hollowing and curling the four feet plus of tubing and dumping, dropping tide close-outs.
Harlyn is doing its favourite winter ‘thing’ of standing tall before crunching down in a beach-wide close-out. Well, most of them. There are always those occasional spinning and reeling, grinding right-handers that spin off from the Rock.
And they’re the ones that tempt you in and make it all worthwhile!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:01 (1.5m) High Tide: 15:59 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Shrove Tuesday, St. David’s Day, 1st March 2022
The weather might be a little miserable today but the surf could just be epic.
With a steady six to eight feet of groundswell rhythmically pulsing our way and Easterly winds gusting offshore, we can expect some peaking and peeling , tubing waves at all of our favourite surf breaks all day long!
And how often can I promise that and keep a straight face!?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The weather is promising to be a little damp and grizzly for a lot of the time again this week but the surf conditions might just make up for that, at least until midweek anyway.
A solid and steady six foot plus groundswell is promising to carry on rolling our way through the first half of the week at least, while the wind will eventually ease its way offshore, providing excellent conditions at our favourite surf spots all along the coast.
The wind is likely to eventually ease its way back to north westerly by Thursday, bringing more cold air and choppy seas our way but before that we can expect to enjoy many thunderous, barrelling waves everywhere.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
