At 9.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet.
Another breezy one is blowing happily along this morning with wide patches of blue in the sky, mild air temperatures and dryness – so far!
The wind is gusting in from the south south east or maybe more southerly than that – it’s blowing across the three to four feet of twitchy and hesitant surf, causing that bouncy unpredictability that you sometimes get, especially towards high on a big Spring tide.
It should sharpen up as the tide starts to empty out but it’s still not going to be as good as those places that are just a few degrees more south facing, like Fistral. That should be cooking!
But get on it quick if you’re going to because that wind will change soon enough and the skies will darken and rain will fall!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet.
Harlyn is looking quite promising, or more promising than I was expecting anyway!
A couple of feet or so of fairly smooth and well shaped little waves are tumbling in, peaking off that high tide bank and rolling to the beach. yeah, it’s fat and slow moving but it should all sharpen up with the dropping tide. And then it should build on the turning tide late this afternoon too, that wind going south westerly, still staying offshore here!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:52 (1.0m) High Tide: 08:29 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 4th March 2017
Westerly going south westerly winds are going to push more damp air our way but it will also push more waves our way too!
Harlyn should be good in the morning when there will still be that bit of southerly to the wind giving more shape to the three feet and rapidly building surf over at Harlyn.
The wind will gradually back more westerly as the day bumbles along making for bumpier and more unpredictable conditions even at Harlyn.
But overall it should be a good day of decent surf with okay patches of weather for most of the time!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Our best chance of some cleanish surf this weekend is probably going to be first thing on Saturday morning when light southerly winds are forecast, along with a still fairly solid four feet plus of swell.
But the wind will soon mess things up, a strengthening north westerly blowing through by mid-afternoon, messing up the surf conditions all along the coast.
And the north westerly wind will be driving us over to the far coast in search of clean waves on Sunday, this coast will be big but choppy and sloppy everywhere.
So, a blown and messy weekend but with a little quality surf tucked away in ether for the keen, if you know when and where to look!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
