At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
There’s a proper storm blowing out there this morning with the wind screeching across the headland, bending the hedgerows as those heavy rain squalls are flooding the lanes.
The surf isn’t all that big, yet but with this level of wind behind it, we should be seeing some excitingly big waves soon enough.
Right now though, there’s three to four feet of mixed up and hideously chopped out storm surf chattering through, hesitantly peaking before being pushed and churned by that wind.
You really wouldn’t want to be going in here today it looks wild and it’s only going to get wilder!
Harlyn though, well, that could be really good…..
After last weekend’s massive success with our POP-UP SALE, we have decided to do it all again this weekend!
We still have a wide size range of Patagonia wetsuits available and so we are offering these at HALF-PRICE between 10.30 a.m. on Saturday until 4 p.m. on Sunday! Alongside these we have a rail of Xcel X2winter suits, again at HALF-PRICE!
Our other wetsuits will be up to 30% OFF!!
And our wide range of wonderful winter clothing (including all those Patagonia jackets and tops) will be 30 – 40% OFF!
This is all to personal callers to the shop only!
It might have been wet ’n windy this winter but it has been mild and so we have a lot of winter clothing and wetsuits to clear out before the arrival of all that summer stock! We were busy last weekend and guess that this weekend might be the same, so if you want to bag yourself a bargain then you had better get yourself down here on Saturday & Sunday between 10.30 & 4!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet.
The wind is roaring offshore here today, an opposing force to those two to three foot waves, hollowing and holding those cavernous little tubes.
There are a handful of guys out already this morning and they’re picking off the odd one but it looks hard work catching them in this wind, worthwhile but you have to be quick to your feet!
Low tide is in a couple of hours and so we should see a build in size and power with the incoming tide.
Yep, we should be enjoying some whompers by this afternoon, those waves should be as thick and heavy as the Welsh pack on a rampage!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:03 (1.7m) High Tide: 15:56 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 7th February 2016
It’s going to be big and windy again today!
A six to eight foot swell will be battering the coastline as the wind hurtles onshore, a stormy south westerly blow that will carry a lot more rain!
Harlyn looks to be the go-to place again today and it’s going to be big and hollow and mean and barrelling!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another weekend of wind and rain and stormy surf awaits!
There’s a low pressure system wandering in above us which is stretching across most of the Atlantic and across most of Europe too with those isobars pretty close together as well!
So, another wet’n windy weekend awaits!
But that wind should be south westerly through Saturday and that is offshore at Harlyn. Given the depth of the low pressure systems out in the Atlantic, I think that we can assume that there will be big enough swells rolling in to more than fire Harlyn up again.
So a typical winter’s Saturday at the ‘lyn awaits and that always goes down well, especially with the Six Nations kicking off too!
Sunday is likely to be showing more and much bigger surf but with the wind maybe having slipped more to the west. That is more sideshore at Harlyn and so those real big waves could just be bit bumpier and lumpier than we would prefer.
It could still be good though and so should be worth a checkout at least.
But there’s likely to be loads of big surf around and with just a little scouting around we should be able to find somewhere sheltered enough to be fun!!
But take it easy out there, it is likely to be really very big, especially as we go into the start of next week!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
