At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet
A howling westerly wind continues to blast into the bay this morning as Jorge embraces full storm mode! But the sky is bright with patchworks of superbright blue highlighted against the dull grey of the next downpour.
The surf is big enough to keep the seascape artists shading and highlighting but there’s nothing out there to ride. Six feet or so of storm surf is being flung drunkenly into the bay to barge aimlessly about the place.
Yep, it’s all best avoided today.
But you could always take the opportunity to drop in on us at the shop and you might even get a nice cup of tea if you behave (although next door’s coffee is pretty tasty too?), as well as picking up a bargain or two as we try and create some rail space for our summer stock arrivals.
Harlyn (0*): 3 feet
You’d expect the waves to be bigger at Harlyn this morning but there’s not that much happening around here really.
The ferocious wind is tearing the three feet of already broken and windswept surf into scrappy fragments of weak looking swell.
I’m guessing that Jorge will flex its muscles soon enough and launch bigger and punchier but still trashy surf our way soon enough.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:49 (1.7m) High Tide: 08:31 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for St, David’s Day, Sunday 1st March 2020
The wind will continue to howl our way all day long, happily blowing away those intense but shorter lasting showers.
So the surf is likely to be getting into the big, big range but is going to be blown to pieces.
Ah well, things to do during storm swells, part six – coming up!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We can expect yet another wet and windy weekend filled with big and lumpy, windswept surf this weekend, Harlyn being our best bet for some big and windswept waves to challenge.
Friday’s more fun conditions at Harlyn will intensify as we go into Saturday with well overhead, hollow and grinding surf closing out the bay on many occasions but throwing a few reeling righthand tubes out as well.
The wind will have eased back to a more westerly direction for Sunday making for lumpier conditions at Harlyn.
It should still be big but not as hard breaking maybe nor as hollow as it was on Saturday.
And then, of course, the north westerly winds return for another wet and blustery week to see in March and the start of Spring.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
