At 8.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A pleasantly thick layer of snow is blanketing the bays this morning, that wind a bitingly cold north easterly still, the sky a threatening darkness over there but bright enough and cheery enough just here.
A foot or occasionally two of offshore shaped, peeling and folding little waves are almost tempting in the sub zero air temperature but the finless twenty year old C1 surfboard on the snow covered dunes is very happy alternative too!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Didn’t make it this far this morning, got caught up in snow fun on the other side!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:57 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:47 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 20th March 2018
That wind is still going to feel cold as it whistles down from the north nor’ east, puffing against a slightly bigger and building swell.
There should be a decent couple to three feet of sharp and clean, offshore shaped surf through the morning if you’re keen to brave the cold! And then as the wind hits direct northerly through the afternoon we should see a jump in the swell size to coincide with a deterioration in conditions.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A small wave start to the week is soon going to change with new swells bowling our way from Tuesday onwards.
And those bright and beautiful, offshore conditions of the weekend are only slowly changing as we go into this week, the wind backing to the north east through Tuesday and then north westerly as we go into midweek.
The two feet or so of perfectly shaped surf that started the week so pleasantly will gradually build as conditions deteriorate, a chunky four to five feet of onshore blown, lumpy surf rolling in by midweek.
But overall we should be enjoying a mainly bright and breezy week with enough surf to keep most of us happy and the option of a south coast surfari if we want cleaner conditions!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
