At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
The forecast is showing a more overcast day for today but so far the sky is clear and that dawn sun is clambering over the horizon to shine clearly on another bright and cheerful morning.
So I guess the we might see a little cloud later.
In the meantime, the weather is mild and gorgeous, the breeze is southerly, almost south easterly (trying its hardest to be offshore but not quite managing it) and that three feet of swell is rolling steadily into the bay.
Once again the surf will probably be that bit better elsewhere today, that degree or two of wind direction making all the difference but then again, it is absolutely fine enough to play in here this morning too!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
You will have to be patient if you want to surf at Harlyn this morning.
There are some decent two to almost three foot waves zipping across the sand but it is flat for a long time between those sets of rideable ones.
The incoming tide through the morning should help to make it all a little more consistent but it is still going to be a waiting game for the good ones!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:38 (2.1m) High Tide: 14:35 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 17th February 2019
South westerly winds are going to be driving thick and lumpy five foot swells all along the coast today.
The mild weather will continue and the skies should clear by midday while that south westerly gusts ashore chopping and slopping those waves at our man surf breaks.
It’s going to be Harlyn all the way today with three to four feet of churning barrels expected for most of the time!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
These beautiful, mellow and sun filled days should drift well into this weekend, the sky bright, mild winds drifting up from the south and plenty of open swells rolling our way!
So that mild winter sunshine should continue to cheer us all day long through Saturday, the thick four foot swell of the morning easing off as the day goes on.
The half-term holiday groms are going to be loving Harlyn as those winds smooth and clean the dropping swell, the neap tides barely moving at all.
Bigger swells are going to be tumbling in through Sunday, the wind gusting back from the south west, again cleaning and shaping the surf at Harlyn.
And that surf is likely to get big by evening with some board snapping barrels grinding their way ashore through the afternoon.
That is likely to set the theme for the coming school holiday, half-term week with some big swells expected along with gusting daily south westerly winds. So, big and chunky Harlyn will be the place to surf locally while that bright and dry and pleasant weather continues!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
