At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
And then it rained…..again.
The wind is howling across the bay this morning, a wet and blustering north north easterly blowing spray off the top of those hollow breaking waves while trying to barge them back to sea.
There’s a windswept three to four feet of wind ribbed surf funnelling across the shallows but it’s cold and wet and rippy and grey looking too.
There is a forecast for it to brighten up by this afternoon but that’s difficult to believe right now.
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
That blustering north north easterly wind is pushing straight onshore at Harlyn, slopping out the two to three feet of choppy surf while flinging rain sheets across the beach.
That rain is stinging cold and biting and the surf isn’t exactly enticing and yet, as always, there’s something quite pleasant about being buffeted about while enjoying the solitude of the empty bay.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:13 (2.5m) High Tide: 13:35 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 6th March 2020
It should be brighter and it should be drier today but the wind is going to continue to bluster in but more from the north west today. So the surf is going to be chopped out all along the coast.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
South westerly winds should be pushing a steadily building swell our way through Saturday, the air temperature feeling milder than it has been through the week and the sun brightening things up during the morning.
Harlyn should be the place to aim for with the promise of an enjoyable surf session in some clean and hollow three feet or so, very fun surf.
The weather might break down a bit as the tide pushes in through the afternoon but the surf should still be very worthwhile.
The wind is likely to have backed more westerly by Sunday morning as a much bigger swell pounds its way into our bays.
Even Harlyn is likely to be thick and lumpy with conditions deteriorating into the afternoon.
It could just be a good day for a wander around in search of some cleaner and more useable conditions. But wherever you decide to venture in, take it easy, those waves could be bigger and more powerful than they first look!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
