At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet.
It’s all peace and quiet this morning, another super-mild one (for February!) with temperature readings of 10 deg C at sunrise.
Otherwise it is all just a little grey and overcast to start the day, that pale overcastness maybe suggesting something better for later though.
And the surf looks quite pleasant with a couple of feet of fairly slow moving but glassy little tumblers washing ashore. The breeze is calm and drifting across from the south with a forecast to back to the south east through midday, offshore again.
And that should coincide with the start of a new swell!
We are hoping for a doubling in swell size just as the wind settles to a pleasant and steady offshore drift this afternoon, all with some spring like sunshine too!
Well, we can hope!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet.
A foot or two of glassy little surf is rolling into the bay this morning, a little weak and lazy looking again but also smooth and clean and welcoming too.
The swell should build through the day but even so, the other side of the headland is still going to be the place to aim for some very decent surf this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:29 (2.0m) High Tide: 09:10 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 18th February 2017
A steady offshore breeze is likely to be greeting a five foot, mid-teens wave-period swell as it majestically swoops into our bays and coves all day long!
Throw in a bit of unseasonally high temperatures and clear sunshine and we could just have the makings of a perfect five star surf day!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
As perfect a surfy Saturday as you could hope for is waiting to entertain us, the breeze set light and offshore, the promise of an evenly spaced and smooth five foot swell, plenty of clear and bright, midwinter sunshine and those more springlike air temperatures!
The wind is likely to have settled back to a more regular west sou’ westerly direction by Sunday, onshore at all those prime surf breaks that will have been on fire on Saturday but helping to keep the swell rolling in and keeping it groomed at those spots like Harlyn.
And that is likely to be the way of it well into next week, those thick and lumpy swells rolling heavily ashore, guided by the gusting wind and thrilling those at Harlyn and other more sheltered breaks.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
