At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet.
Another hard blast of ferocious wind is gasping across the bay this morning, the waves stumbling and tumbling over, beaten into submission by that endlessly blowing storm.
The wind has tweaked a degree or two back to westerly from yesterday’s north west blow, so it is still as strong but maybe a fraction milder.
Other than that, it continues to be wild and blowy, another wet’n windy but mild winter’s day.
We are having another POP UP SALE this weekend!!
So if you are around this weekend it could well be worth poking your head in to say hello! With all PATAGONIA wetsuits at up to HALF-PRICE (including those Yulex suits!) and XCEL & O’NEILL suits all up to HALF-PRICE, as well massive discounts on VISSLA suits too, this could just be the perfect time to update your old winterwear!

So why not drop in for a new ride this weekend!
Harlyn (3*): 4 feet.
The wind has backed just a couple of degrees away from yesterday’s north westerly to a more westerly direction today and the waves are looking better for it.
It’s not great but four feet and bigger walls are spinning off the Rock every now and then, offering the odd chance for a hack or two. with a couple to three people out and one or two sauntering that way, it shouldn’t be too busy.
You would want to be on it pretty quick though, deteriorations are likely to deteriorate through the day.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:55 (2.3m) High Tide: 09:35 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 1st February 2016
Strong, strong winds and pushing, broken swells are going to continue through today.
The wind is likely to have backed another degree or two to the south from west and so Harlyn will have a chance to clean its act up. The main breaks are going to continue to be blown out and washed out.
So, four foot, offshore Harlyn!
Who’d have thunk it?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
This first week of February looks set to continue the theme of the never-ending storm with those howling onshore winds carrying on well into the week and probably beyond.
West sou’ west, going north westerly gales are happily blowing their way towards our already battered little coastline, pushing more thick and lumpy, out of control windswells with them.
So the surf is likely to continue in the ‘big’ to ‘very big’ range all week long, those winds battering and those swell lines every which way except the right way.
Harlyn is going to be our sheltered haven but even Harlyn is going to be battered and broken for some of the time this week!
So, big and thick, grinding surf will be offering loads of barrel opportunities at Harlyn to start the week, with attention maybe swinging south by midweek before returning to big Harlyn again to end the week.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
