Surf Report for Saturday 31st January 2015

Constantine (0*):  Big, bad and blown to pieces

at 8.35 a.m.


Another stormy day is unleashing those strong and angry winds our way; the surf a bit of a maelstrom, the sky a fast moving cloudscape while the hedgerows are warping and bending with the gusts.
Surfing is pretty much out of the question here again today, all eyes looking south in the hope of something cleaner and more organised.
It’s a great place to storm watch though!


Harlyn (0*):  Big, bad and blown to pieces


It’s big, bad and blown out here this morning too, a couple of dogwalkers’ lonely cars shaking in the wind in the car park, sand piling up at the top of the beach while the sea is erupting on that low tide bank which is quickly being remodelled.
The surf is big but completely out of control, the normal beach break having turned into a vicious shoredump for a raggedy righthand point type wave breaking off the headland outside.
No, it’s not the place that you would want to venture out in, not today!
The south coast is our only option for anything approaching rideable surf.


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  09:18  (2.1m)           High Tide:  15:10  (6.2m)


Surf Forecast for Sunday 1st February 2015

It’s probably not going to be too much of a surprise to see howling onshore winds and mad, out of control surf once again.
The south coast has been shining all week and it looks that way for this Sunday too.
All of our surf breaks on this coast are likely to continue to be completely blown out.


Surf Conditions for the Weekend

More storms are galloping their way to us with those gale to storm force winds and mountainous seas bearing down on us for the whole weekend.
The whole coastline is going to be battered through this weekend, those howling north westerly winds sandblasting anything in their way while making for dangerous conditions out to sea.
The surf is increasing in size as the wind strength increases, blowing all the way through the weekend, those mountainous seas and stormy conditions driving the keenest surfers down to the south coast in search of shelter and some relative calmness.
Keep those hatches battened, it is still a little way until Spring!
But also have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
