At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
A brighter morning is heaving its way through a weighty cushion of grey this morning, a relaxed melody of birdsong mingling with the roar and hiss of a solid four to five foot swell.
The breeze is onshore and so it’s just making conditions a little tougher if you’re thinking of paddling out. Right now it’s all a little rippy and unpredictable and the breeze is forecast to strengthen as the day rolls on so it might not improve either.
But if you’re keen for a work-out then here’s your place!
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.
SEASONAL CREW – get your names in quick if you’re looking to join our happy little team this year! We will be looking for full and part-time staff to help out with hire and sales for the coming summer season!
Drop an email to [email protected] to let us know your interest and for the full package of info!
We look forward to meeting you!
(Proud to be a Living Wage Employer).
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
Harlyn is happily being just as it should be for this time of year; quiet, relaxing, grey but brightening and with three feet and more of not quite clean but okay surf.
A handful of early wanderers are paddling about and stretching, while the tide stumbles forward.
It should be fun here all day, not great but just fun.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:48 (1.9m) High Tide: 09:26 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 8th February 2022
Fresh south westerly winds are going to be livening up the bays as they push a lumping six feet plus of tumbling swell our way today.
Harlyn is always our ‘go to’ surf spot in these conditions and we can expect some chunky and hollow waves to be grinding their way onto the hardened sand there today as well. Add some brighter and mildish winter’s weather to the mix and we should be in for a relent testing day of munching surf!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to crumble and mess the surf at our preferred local surf spots this week, starting out west sou’ westerly, which at least allows breaks like Harlyn to offer some goods, and then gradually swinging more north westerly which is onshore everywhere around these parts.
Calmer conditions will start the week with some pleasantly bright and mild enough weather at first, that wind slowly pushing through as we go along.
Harlyn is going to be our surf destination of choice for the first half of the week with some bigger waves expected even there as we go into midweek.
But then a wind switch is expected with freshening north westerlies blowing through the back half of the week. And that will chop the surf at all of our surf breaks!
So a mixed up week of mixed up surf is expected but only a bit of ‘looking about’ might just pay off handsomely, especially with a surfari or two to the other coast at the end of the week maybe?
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
