At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 feet
A gusting westerly wind is chugging into the bay this morning tossing and turning the four feet of mixed up, grey and wintery looking surf.
A fine rain is already starting to thin as lighter patches try to spread across the otherwise dreary sky.
All of it should improve as the day rolls on with this afternoon eventually being bright and breezy. Harlyn is going to be the place to go for a surf today though.
Harlyn (2*): 3 feet
A blustery and clutching west wind is blowing across a deserted Harlyn at the moment, light rain squalls being blasted along the bay. And so the three feet of surf is a little lumpy and disorganised, trying to break harder but eventually just shuffling onto the sand. But the wind will back to the south west which will clean up and sharpen those otherwise fun looking waves, while the sun should break through soon enough too.
It should all come good sooner rather than later!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:01 (1.0m) High Tide: 08:35 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 15th March 2020
That wind could just shuffle too far to the west to allow Harlyn to be at its best today and it might even settle to the north west which will be onshore all along the coast.
So if you want to stay on this coast you might end up surfing onshore junk surf.
Or it’s that drive over to the other coast in search of some cleaner swell.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another weekend of fun surf at Harlyn along with some wild and windy walks is aiming our way.
Although the wind might veer a little westerly early on Saturday, that shouldn’t last too long before returning to the south west for the rest of the weekend.
The swells should have eased in size and strength from the brutality those heavy storm swells of a few days ago as well but there should still be a thick and rolling six to eight feet of ocean swell producing a solid three to four feet of surf at Harlyn.
So Saturday should be a bright ‘n breezy one with the afternoon tide producing some solid little barrels at Harlyn, making for three to four feet of hollow and sunny surf well into the evening.
And those conditions should continue all the way through Sunday, the wind maybe settling slightly more to the west through the afternoon, putting more of a lump on those otherwise quite smooth and sharp, hollow waves.
But it should still be a whole heap of fun with maybe a real hint of Spring starting to show itself at last!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
