At 7.00 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 10 to 12 feet
A thuggish westerly wind is bulldozing its way into the bay this morning, all noise and bluster, flinging the grey and mountainous surf all over the place.
That huge supermoon is attracting huge supertides too, the thick and powerful whitewater run shifting sand and dragging stone.
The sky is clear and sharp, the air cold, the wind biting and so it is all very beautiful and exciting and very wintery.
Wrap up warm if you’re adventuring out but it might be wise not to go too close to that wild and woolly sea today!
Harlyn (0*): 8 to 10 feet
Big and thick, huge and heavy seas are roaring into Harlyn this morning, the high tide surge washing beneath the bridge, scouring the stream banks while flinging flotsam and jetsam onto the foreshore.
A westerly gale is screeching across the bay, lumping and pushing those big, big waves while helping them to shift tonnes of sand.
It’s an awesome place to sit and watch nature this morning but you might not want to get to closely involved with any of it today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:43 (0.2m) High Tide: 19:34 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 13th March 2020
The north westerly winds of the morning are soon going to back to the south west, allowing those smaller but still big enough swells to clean up as they swing into Harlyn on the afternoon tide.
A brave prediction would be; three to four feet, offshore and sunny at Harlyn Bay.
I think I’d go with that!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another weekend of fun surf at Harlyn along with some wild and windy walks is aiming our way.
Although the wind might veer a little westerly early on Saturday, that shouldn’t last too long before returning to the south west for the rest of the weekend.
The swells should have eased in size and strength from the brutality those heavy storm swells of a few days ago as well but there should still be a thick and rolling six to eight feet of ocean swell producing a solid three to four feet of surf at Harlyn.
So Saturday should be a bright ‘n breezy one with the afternoon tide producing some solid little barrels at Harlyn, making for three to four feet of hollow and sunny surf well into the evening.
And those conditions should continue all the way through Sunday, the wind maybe settling slightly more to the west through the afternoon, putting more of a lump on those otherwise quite smooth and sharp, hollow waves.
But it should still be a whole heap of fun with maybe a real hint of Spring starting to show itself at last!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
