At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
A canopy of grey is snuggling over us this morning, a light mizzle clinging to the marram carried into the bay by a steady sou’ wester.
The surf has built overnight, that wind pushing and shoving six feet or so of thick and lumpy looking, grey and bouncy swells.
Once again there will be a wide selection of breaks both up and down the coast with better surf than here today but locally Harlyn will be the spot to aim for!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
With still a couple of hours to go before low tide, three feet and bigger of hard breaking, hollow and often closing out barrels are snapping onto the hardened sand in the mizzle and grey of a damp Sunday at Harlyn.
With a gusting sou’ westerly wind and a steady six feet plus of open ocean swell, Harlyn should be our surf venue of choice today, that wind blowing offshore and keeping those waves smooth and hollow all day long!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:45 (1.6m) High Tide: 15:39 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 18th February 2019
South westerly winds are likely to continue to blow some big swells our way today with eight to ten feet of thick and lumpy waves expected to bowl their way into our bays and coves.
Harlyn is going to be our surf spot of choice again today, bigger again than Sunday with that wind continuing to blow offshore for most of the day producing some big and barrelling, sand crunching surf!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
South westerly winds are going to be blowing plenty of surf our way all through this school half-term week producing some big days of thumping surf at Harlyn.
Monday is likely to be showing some really big surf, that south westerly wind steadily pushing large swells onto coast. The only place you are going to find any chance of decent surf is by exploring those sheltered surf breaks up and down the coast.
Or settling for some big and cavernous barrels at Harlyn!
Tuesday will be more of a typical Harlyn day with the swells having settled back and that same south westerly winds easing to a steady blow. Harlyn should be three feet plus and as hollow as you would like.
By midweek we should be enjoying some bigger surf again with more blustery sou’ westers blowing our way.
So, there should be plenty of surf to keep the half term groms amused and tested while the weather should be dry enough, brightening up through the end of the week.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
