At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Steady rainfall is pitter pattering in the blow of a steady south sou’ wester, the sky a bluer shade of grey, the air temperature a balmy 10 deg C.
It’s one of those non-event days by the look of things, the three to four feet of almost clean surf bumping into the bay at high tide, looking okay but not great. It might sharpen up as the tide empties out a little but then it will be more exposed to that wind too.
Still, there are waves and it might just be worth the paddle!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
The wind is straight offshore at Harlyn this morning, hollowing out the two to maybe three feet of smooth and peaky (for Harlyn), high tide peeling surf.
The swell is expected to build through the day but so too might the wind.
So this afternoon should provide some hollow and snappy, shutdown little barrels.
We might just see an hour or two of brighter weather by then too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:21 (1.4m) High Tide: 08:01 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 29th February 2020
Screeching west sou’ westerly winds and a ten foot swell are going to keep the weekend wave riders occupied over the next couple of days!
There will be plenty of dampness around but we should see some brighter stuff too.
So Harlyn is going to be the place to aim for with big enough and chunky enough barrels for all!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We can expect yet another wet and windy weekend filled with big and lumpy, windswept surf this weekend, Harlyn being our best bet for some big and windswept waves to challenge.
Friday’s more fun conditions at Harlyn will intensify as we go into Saturday with well overhead, hollow and grinding surf closing out the bay on many occasions but throwing a few reeling righthand tubes out as well.
The wind will have eased back to a more westerly direction for Sunday making for lumpier conditions at Harlyn.
It should still be big but not as hard breaking maybe nor as hollow as it was on Saturday.
And then, of course, the north westerly winds return for another wet and blustery week to see in March and the start of Spring.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
