At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet.
Thick but bright lumps of cloud are being bundled across the horizon by a brisk and unnecessarily noisy, west north westerly wind this morning, the air temperature feeling just a little chilly in that wind but not with that bite that we have felt recently.
The surf is a mess, as you would expect with this wind, three to four feet of chopped and slopped, grey and misshapen waves are washing into the bay with little appeal to them.
The wind is forecast to ease a lot through this afternoon, still staying onshore but maybe dropping to a breeze.
So let’s wait and see.
In the meantime the store is open from 10.30 till 4.30 and we still have a lot of clearance items on offer if you fancy dropping in!
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet.
A couple of feet of wind-slopped and fairly weak looking, choppy surf is stumbling onto the beach this morning, not exactly enticing but with potential to improve through this afternoon as the tide comes back in maybe.
Or there’s always the other coast?
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Sunday 29th January 2017
The gusting wind should be lighter overall and more from the south today, so at least it should be milder, if a bit damper.
And, if we’re really lucky that wind might just start the morning off breezing in from the south east, offshore! Probably only for an hour or two, if at all but that could seriously improve the surf if it happens!
Otherwise it’s what Harlyn was made for with an expected couple to three feet of offshore shaped surf expected over there today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Brisk winds are going to blow in hard through midweek, veering from the south east (offshore) to the south west (onshore at the main breaks, offshore at Harlyn).
But everything is likely to calm fairly quickly, leaving light and variable breezes to drift about through Friday.
A solid and steady four feet or so of swell should continue to push along the coast throughout the back half of the week and well into the weekend, hopefully lighting up Harlyn throughout Saturday and Sunday.
So, Friday, although eventually resorting to a slovenly slop at places other than Harlyn, should start out clean and fun with three to four feet or maybe even a little bigger of pretty good surf in those lightening offshore winds.
And then Harlyn vies for surf destination of choice for the weekend!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
