At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 8 to 10 feet
The wind is howling and screeching into the bay again this morning, hurtling and shoving big and grey waves across the bay.
It’s another exciting day to be blown across the beach but there’s no rideable surf to be seen!
Harlyn (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Sheets of stinging rain are being slung across Harlyn this morning by more sou’ westerly gales, big set waves crushing the end of the headland as they bundle their way to shore.
The wind seems to be trying to ease its way more westerly, it’s not quite straight offshore and so there are some double-ups and reforms out there just to add a little excitement to the mix of more regular, beachwide close-outs. But those occasional screaming and very hollow right-handers could make it all worthwhile again.
If you’re keen enough that is!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:55 (1.2m) High Tide: 17:46 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 24th February 2020
West sou’ westerly, going north westerly gales are going to continue to drive thick and lumpy winter swells into our bays and coves.
Another day filled with driving rain, howling winds, windswept surf is waiting but with milder temperatures too.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
More winter storms are still queuing across the Atlantic, bringing with them a steady stream of gales and rain and mountainous seas.
Those storms are going to be busy reshaping and remodelling our coastline all week long, the torrential rain running off the land and trying to build more shapely breaks up and down the coast while those huge waves scour and gouge the beachfronts and headlands and reefs.
Once these storms have passed (and eventually they will!), then there should be a whole selection of newly shaped surf breaks to explore all the way along our coastline.
But that could be a while away yet!
In the meantime, yes, more howling winds, huge waves and grey, grey skies are expected, Harlyn continuing to put on an endless barrel fest for those quick-limbed and fearless enough to take full advantage, while Bodyboard Central is likely to continue to dish out the usual series of broken, dislocated, ruptured and torn bones, tendons and limbs.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
