At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 8 to 10 feet
There’s another vicious hooly blowing out there this morning, a blustering westerly wind screeching across the headland, hurling big and wind battered waves into the bay while flinging sheets of stinging rain at us.
As another storm swell starts pouring our way we’re hoping that the sky should brighten at least a little by lunchtime and that wind should ease as we go into the afternoon.
It is still likely to remain a beast of day though!
Harlyn (0*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind is howling and screaming into Harlyn this morning sending seabirds skittering across the shallows as they hunt for breakfast.
The big spring tide combined with that heavy blow is making it difficult for the surf to break with any shape at all, wedging peaks are bouncing up off the Rock only to suddenly flatten out before regrouping and closing out across the bay.
It’s hardly fun.
And it is probably going to get worse!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:44 (0.7m) High Tide: 20:39 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 14th February 2020
A shrieking sou’ wester is expected to blow hard today pushing a fat and lumpy, thick winter swell our way.
It’s not going to be quite as big as it has been but there should certainly enough swell to get Harlyn pumping up. We might just be seeing more windblown and hollow barrels grinding their way through Harlyn on the dropping tide today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
And yet more wind and rain are going to be storming our way this weekend with Storm Dennis looking for somewhere to menace.
Sixty mile an hour winds are going to blow the school half-term holidaymakers into Saturday, maybe easing up a fraction for Sunday as ten to fifteen foot storm swells pound the coast.
The only slim chance of a surf is going to be at one of those super sheltered spots around the corner and up or down the coast.
Or, just maybe; big and booming, closing-out Harlyn – but only if you’re super surf-fit and skilled. And even then it’s probably going to be tougher than you would hope for with less reward than effort!
So a wind ravaged and wild weekend awaits the storm-watchers and walkers but it’s not likely to do much for any surfers in search of something clean and fun.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
