At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 6 to 8 feet.
It’s a daydreamy kind of a Sunday morning, the wind calmer, the sky dull and grey again but with a hint of brighter to come from just over there.
And the surf is pumping!
Six to eight feet of offshore swept peaks are majestically swooping into the bay before unfolding themselves around the rocks and sand. But the tide is way too high already and so it’s nowhere near its best with too much water rushing around the bay and backwash steering into rips. It looks like a proper paddleathon without too much reward right now but that should change as the tide drops back later this morning.
The wind is north easterly again, only a light breeze just yet, forecast to strengthen through midday.
There are a whole bunch of surf breaks up and down the coast that will probably be breaking better than here right now. All the ingredients are there for a magical Valentine’s Day surf session, a rolling, punching, solid swell, offshore winds and big tides but it might not happen here until the tide drops out a bit.
Let’s go wave hunting!
So, we have been having some great fun this last couple of weeks with our weekend POP-UP SALES and we don’t want it to finish! But equally we cannot afford to keep giving suits out at the prices that we have been.
So imagine our delight when we unpacked another couple of boxes of winter wetsuits and decided that nobody is going to really want to buy them now until next year – unless we offer them out at fantastic discount prices!
So, with the winter half-term school holidays upon us, we have decide to have a SCHOOLS OUT – CLEAR OUT!!
And it’s O’Neill and Xcel’s turn to be offered at HALF – PRICE! We have Xcel Infiniti X2s at HALF-PRICE as well as a range of O’Neill winter wetsuits at HALF-PRICE!!
From Saturday 13th FEB to Sunday 21st FEB, 10.30 to 4pm daily. And all our other WINTER WETSUITS (Patagonia, Vissla, Xcel and O’Neill) will also be on SALE at a mighty 30% OFF with loads of other offers throughout the shop (30% OFF Patagonia clothing plus 20% OFF most other stuff!).
Once again this offer is only open to callers to the shop!
The whole point is to get everyone back into that surfy rapping kind of buzz feeling that the internet sometimes doesn’t quite get!! And with the surf looking promisingly pleasant this weekend, it could just be worth your while dropping in on us agin for another SUPER WETSUIT BARGAIN!
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 4 feet.
There’s three to four feet of ruffled and bumpy surf deceptively sliding in here this morning, the tide already too high an hour or two ahead of high and that breeze a little too onshore.
There are waves here and it is probably fun but there should be a whole bunch of other surf breaks up and down the coast that will have way better surf today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:48 (1.4m) High Tide: 09:25 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 15th February 2016
The wind should just about hang in to the north east, offshore at all of our preferred surf spots. And we might even see some brighter sees today too.
The swell is likely to have decreased in size, still maintaining its mid-teens wave-period though and so still being solid, just smaller.
So, three to four feet and offshore, all day long!
That’ll do nicely!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those smooth conditions of the weekend, that solid rolling swell and those offshore winds should see us into the start of the week, the swell only gradually dropping in size but still staying strong, now more in the three to four feet range.
But, as always, that wind is inevitably going to slide onshore as the week goes on.
we are likely to be surfing Harlyn again by Tuesday on a south westerly windblown four foot swell, the wind going north westerly by midweek, driving us over to the far coast in search of cleaner conditions.
And that’s probably going to be the way of it for the rest of this school half-term week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
