Surf Report for Monday 26th January 2015

Constantine (1*):  2 to 3 feet

at 7.50 a.m.


Light winds are blowing down from the north this morning, that chill north westerly wind breathing colder air onto an otherwise quite mild morning.
The wind, although not the strongest, is also managing to make a mighty mess of the pretty small surf too, a couple to three feet of sloppy and choppy surf not really calling to be surfed. And with high tide in a couple of hours you have to think that this might be as good as it gets today!
So, a bright and mild enough day but with lacklustre, small and choppy surf.
And I don’t think that it’s big enough for the far coast to be showing a wave?

Harlyn (1*):  1 to 2 feet


It’s one of those days when the surf here is pretty much the same as it is on the other side of the headland but maybe, as always, just that bit smaller.
There’s a couple of feet or so of broken up and choppy, wishy washy surf crumbling about the place but there’s not much out there to make you think about grabbing a board to go wave riding on!
It will probably increase in size through this afternoon but the quality isn’t likely to improve too much at all.

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  15:57  (1.4m)           High Tide:  09:33  (7.1m)



Surf Forecast for Tuesday 27th January 2015

And it looks like another ho-hum kind of day today. A bright enough and cheery enough day but with that steady north westerly wind blowing in and making for choppy surf conditions all along the coast.
Well, until the afternoon that is. We might just get lucky with that wind shifting more to the west and then, maybe, just to the south west. That would at least let Harlyn attract some shape.
So maybe just before high tide, just before dark, Harlyn might just be quite attractive! Small but prettier maybe.


Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

Theres’ another big old storm galloping our way for the back half of this week with storm force winds and mountainous seas being predicted from Wednesday or Thursday.
Before that it looks as though we are in for a few days of strengthening onshore winds, those brisk and chilly north westerly winds gradually increasing in strength as we go through the week.
So, Monday looks likely to be in the three building to four foot range, onshore and mushy everywhere on this coast with Tuesday getting just a little bigger and maybe seeing an afternoon twitch in the wind to the south west making Harlyn a possibility just for the last couple of hours of the day.
And then the surf should increase in size throughout Wednesday, growing in size as the wind strength increases until we get that next big blow through on Thursday. Batten those hatches down again, it is still a little way until Spring!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
