At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet.
The wind is still blowing and the sky is still grey, the air temperature has notched back a degree or two and there’s that threat of rain from just over there!
The surf isn’t all that either with a lot of big and bowling but mixed up and messy waves being blown around the bay. That wind is now from the north west, onshore and blowing hard.
It’s a day for other things today, maybe a day to clamber out and go exploring?
The far coast will have some cleaner conditions in this wind!?
We are having another POP UP SALE this weekend!!
So if you are around this weekend it could well be worth poking your head in to say hello! With all PATAGONIA wetsuits at up to HALF-PRICE (including those Yulex suits!) and XCEL & O’NEILL suits all up to HALF-PRICE, as well massive discounts on VISSLA suits too, this could just be the perfect time to update your old winterwear!
And don’t forget we still have some Merrick and …Lost Surfboards at up to £100 OFF!! There’s loads of others tuff to clear too!!
So why not drop in for a new ride this weekend!
Harlyn (1*): 4 feet.
There’s four feet or so of windblown and mixed up surf being blasted into the bay here this morning as well.
This north westerly wind is straight onshore at Harlyn and in Summer that can be fun but at the end of January, even in such a mild winter as this, it’s not looking all that appealing.
South coast anyone?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:18 (2.0m) High Tide: 08:57 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 31st January 2016
More strong onshore winds with lots of windblown swell.
Add a bit of grey winter dullness to the mix and we have another deja vu day, again.
The wind should be more less northerly today so there is a chance of Harlyn improving but otherwise, it could be worth another trip to the other coast?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another turbulent weekend approaches as this week’s culprit, Storm Gertrude swirls those winds and unlooses more rain.
Gale to storm force onshore, westerly winds are set to blow for the whole weekend, making the mountainous seas wild and out of control for most of the time.
We might just see some more rideable Harlyn early on Sunday but not then until later on Monday.
It might be worth just checking those super sheltered spots if you have the time and inclination, there are one or two rarely surfed little coves that should have some wave action this weekend if tide and time and wind and swell conspire!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
