At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 5 feet
The lightest of light breezes is drifting offshore beneath a gradually clearing sky this morning while a thick and pushing swell loops onto all of our favourite surf breaks.
The set waves are comfortably overhead, that slo-mo pitch and peel of glassy waves beckoning and warning at the same time.
Make the most of it though, that wind isn’t going to stay calm for very long!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 2 feet
At first glance the surf looks flat at Harlyn but turn the engine off, have a little relax and a look around and you’ll eventually see small sets of glass warped waves whip-cracking across the sand.
Most of those little waves are closing out on the dropping tide and with the super awesome conditions over on the other side of the headland then you might want to pass. But if this is the place you have to be today then give it a little while and you should end up having some surfy fun!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:16 (1.7m) High Tide: 16:09 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 8th February 2020
Harlyn should be on fire this morning as a building storm swell swoops onto our coast. Four feet in the morning, eight feet by evening and a strengthening southerly going south westerly wind.
You might just need a power shower wash down to remove all the sand from those hollow and heaving sand-sucking barrels that you’re inevitably going to get caught up in at Harlyn today!
Enjoy but you might want to stay within your own limits today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
You have probably already noticed that Storm Ciara is on her way?!
It has to be one of the most publicised storm arrivals of the Winter but then it is hurtling across the Atlantic very quickly so I guess that it will be packing a lot of energy from that hitched ride on a superfast jet stream!
So we can look forward to roaring winds and mountainous seas getting bigger and stormier as we roll through the weekend!
But in amongst it all we might just see some big and hollow, reeling Harlyn. Saturday might just reward the fit and the brave with some seriously fun six foot beasts to play amongst.
And then it is going to get BIG!
Sunday is likely to be out of control everywhere except at those most sheltered and tucked away spots, those places that only break on the biggest of storm swells.
But even they are likely to be windswept and swirling.
So, if in doubt – don’t go out!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
