Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet plus
at 7.15 a.m.
It’s not yet as bright nor as cheery as has been forecast! But it is fairly mild and, so far, dry. And there is the glimmer of bright skies behind all that grey cloud, maybe.
The wind is fresher too, a brisk south sou’ wester pushing across the bay and toppling those quite chunky set waves way too early. The surf is a good four feet but with much bigger sets rumbling through every now and again. And that wind, so close to being offshore, is too sideshore to allow the waves to be organised.
It is tempting but the paddle would be horrendous and the rewards short and sharp.
Let’s have a look at Harlyn……
If you are around this way on the weekend, it might be worth dropping in on us at the shop.
We are having lots of new stock delivered and so we are having a bit of a clearance sale! All those winter wetsuits that we didn’t manage to sell this winter need to be cleared! They include Xcel and O’Neill winter and summer suits at up to £50 or more OFF, many of the summer suits at HALF PRICE and we still have loads of sizes at the moment!
Be quick though, word seems to be out already!
And we are stoked to announce the arrival of Patagonia clothing and stuff into our little store!
Patagonia’s mission statement is: Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
And that sounds like just the type of business that should sit nicely within our little surf store, eh!
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
It is looking quite good around here this morning, a fun looking three feet with the occasional bigger set lumbering through the middle of the bay.
The wind is fresh and offshore, a bit stronger than hoped for but helping to keep a hollow shape to those waves.
It is really setty and there is a long wait for those sets but when they come they do look fun!
There are a few in already, half a dozen in, half a dozen doing the Saturday morning stretch, a few more in the car park, so I guess that it could get busy later. But with the tide dropping, there should be room for everyone.
This afternoon’s incoming tide could just be quite good!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 8th March 2015
It’s all down to the wind today.
I’m guessing that the morning will show more three to four feet and offshore, good surf at Harlyn but that wind is probably going to quite quickly slide to a more northerly direction. And that is bad news for Harlyn. That is onshore and it is likely to stay that way through the afternoon tide too.
But that wind could just carry on swinging, eventually ending up being north easterly, offshore on the other side!
But it is likely to be big over there too! Six foot plus and still twitchy with a lot of water moving around. But if you’re keen enough (and experienced enough) then Sunday afternoon might just have some walloping great hollow ones to play in!
Especially if the wind weakens too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The wind seems to be settling into a south westerly direction as the week winds down and the weekend calls.
That steady swell is likely to continue to roll our way, a deep low pressure system up to the north west of us continuing to spin six foot plus swells in our direction while high pressure continues to build closer to home.
And so the skies should clear allowing plenty of early Spring sunshine to cheer us up all the way through the weekend and well into next week.
All of this points to Harlyn as being the most likely best proposition on this stretch of coast and it should be really very good there throughout the end of the week and all the way through the weekend.
So, four feet plus, offshore and sunny!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
