At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
The wind is lighter this morning, still onshore here but from the south west and so a little milder but there are some bundles of dark and threatening clouds out there too. Right now it’s dry but, well, you know.
About four feet of lumpy surf is bumbling in, all a bit directionless and lazy looking, especially after those recent storm swells.
This is definitely the quiet day – we’re looking at more mountainous stuff to come later!
Harlyn (2*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is gusting offshore at Harlyn this morning, meeting three feet of bouncy surf an hour or two ahead of high tide.
As the tide drops out everything should sharpen up and the shallower water is likely to allow those waves to stand a little taller before hollowing out.
There should be plenty of curling barrels to head dip your way through today and then it’s going to get BIG tomorrow!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:26 (1.1m) High Tide: 08:59 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 15th February 2020
I hope that you’ve tidied and fixed everything after last week’s storm and that everything is battened down for this weekend’s because we’re in for another thumper of a wet ‘n windy one with Storm Dennis tracking our way, hitching a ride on those super fast jet streams.
So we should be seeing more huge surf today that wind blasting through from the south west. And you know what that means don’t you? Yep, big and booming, boardsnapping and cavernous Harlyn!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
And yet more wind and rain are going to be storming our way this weekend with Storm Dennis looking for somewhere to menace.
Sixty mile an hour winds are going to blow the school half-term holidaymakers into Saturday, maybe easing up a fraction for Sunday as ten to fifteen foot storm swells pound the coast.
The only slim chance of a surf is going to be at one of those super sheltered spots around the corner and up or down the coast.
Or, just maybe; big and booming, closing-out Harlyn – but only if you’re super surf-fit and skilled. And even then it’s probably going to be tougher than you would hope for with less reward than effort!
So a wind ravaged and wild weekend awaits the storm-watchers and walkers but it’s not likely to do much for any surfers in search of something clean and fun.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
