Constantine (4*): 6 feet.
It’s another grey skied and breezy Saturday morning with a cold wind but…. immaculate surf!
Yes, the surf is pumping!
The wind is light so far and offshore, a north easterly blowing into a thick looking but smooth and steady swell of six feet plus waves.
Even though the tide is too high already, it is looking pretty classy out there with some big and smooth peaks unfolding majestically as they spiral towards shore.
Give it a couple of hours (although be careful, the forecast is for the wind to pick up this morning before calming this afternoon) or mosy on down the coast for a better high tide break.
But right now the swell is rolling in, the wind is offshore and suddenly those grey skies and cold winds don’t seem to matter any more!
So, we have been having some great fun this last couple of weeks with our weekend POP-UP SALES and we don’t want it to finish! But equally we cannot afford to keep giving suits out at the prices that we have been.
So imagine our delight when we unpacked another couple of boxes of winter wetsuits and decided that nobody is going to really want to buy them now until next year – unless we offer them out at fantastic discount prices!
So, with the winter half-term school holidays upon us, we have decide to have a SCHOOLS OUT – CLEAR OUT!!
And it’s O’Neill and Xcel’s turn to be offered at HALF – PRICE! We have Xcel Infiniti X2s at HALF-PRICE as well as a range of O’Neill winter wetsuits at HALF-PRICE!!
From Saturday 13th FEB to Sunday 21st FEB, 10.30 to 4pm daily. And all our other WINTER WETSUITS (Patagonia, Vissla, Xcel and O’Neill) will also be on SALE at a mighty 30% OFF with loads of other offers throughout the shop (30% OFF Patagonia clothing plus 20% OFF most other stuff!).
Once again this offer is only open to callers to the shop!
The whole point is to get everyone back into that surfy rapping kind of buzz feeling that the internet sometimes doesn’t quite get!! And with the surf looking promisingly pleasant this weekend, it could just be worth your while dropping in on us agin for another SUPER WETSUIT BARGAIN!
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet.
This north easterly wind is blowing straight onshore here this morning, making bit of a sloppy mess of the two to three feet of surf.
Luckily the other side of the headland is pumping and offshore and so that is the place to head today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:03 (0.9m) High Tide: 08:38 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 14th February 2016
It is all looking so promising for some excellent and big surf conditions today!
The wind looks set offshore while a six foot plus swell continues to pulsate our way.
Pretty much every quality surf-break along the coasts of Devon, Cornwall and Wales (not excluding other counties!) should be firing all day long! And we might even see a little glimpse of some pleasant winter sunshine too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend is starting to look as though it might just be filled with at least a little promise!
Saturday morning should show the signs of a new swell, a high teens wave-period, long travelled and smooth, winter swell. And that swell should be smoothed even more by a light south easterly breeze drifting offshore.
The swell is likely to be getting into the ‘big’ range by Saturday afternoon while the wind relaxes and eases off.
As the swell peaks overnight and into the morning, that fresh and chilly offshore, north easterly, wind should continue to groom and smooth strong and rhythmic swell.
It could just be really good throughout Sunday with some big and wintery surf curling into that cold wind!
That should take us well into the start of next week, the school half-term week.
And the kids should be enjoying it, the swell is only slowly going to ease back while the wind might stay offshore for a good couple of days – maybe!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
