At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 feet.
And on the wind blows!
Today we have a north westerly blow, screeching across the fields and meadows, bringing, cold, cold air down upon us. Well, it’s probably no colder than it should be but it feels shivery compared to the rest of the winter so far!
Anyway, that wind is also blowing out the three to maybe four feet of surf, leaving a grey and mixed up mess of cold looking waves washing around aimlessly in the bay.
There’s no surf worth riding here today and there probably isn’t anywhere along this coastline. To find something cleaner and more organised then we are going to have to travel southwards, if there is any swell is managing to get around there that is!
If you’re around the area this weekend enjoying the winter beauty of our bays and coves, then it might be worth popping into the shop and saying hi! Our super duper 20% off everything sale might have finished (and a massive thanks to all of you who got involved with that!) but we still plan to have some surprising POP UP SALES on individual items! Watch out on our social media pages and on here too, or just pop in out of the cold. #makingitupaswegoalong #alwaysloveawinterbargain #gosurfnow
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet.
There’s a couple to three feet of blown out and messed up surf washing around here too this morning.
It is all a little grey and off-putting, a mixed up mess again, a high tide wash of bouncy and directionless waves. No, there’s not much to surf on here today in this strong north westerly gale and so it’s off to the south coast we probably need to go in search of something cleaner and more organised, if there’s enough swell getting around there.

Surf Forecast for Friday 15th January 2016
These north westerly winds have taken control for a few days, blowing hard and cold and destroying any chance of rideable waves on this side of the county.
If enough swell is getting into those south coast breaks then that is the place to aim for, at least there should be clean conditions to be found over there, although it might just be little small for our favoured break to be working as they might.
But it could be worth the journey.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Those strong north westerly winds of the end of the week are only slowly going to ease to something relatively more comfortable.
Friday looks as annoying as the previous days with those strong north westerlies blowing cold air over us as it ruins the surf conditions all along this coastline.
But as we go into Saturday, the wind is likely to ease more to the north, finally settling to the north east. And that is offshore at some of our preferred surf breaks locally! That might not happen until later in the afternoon and the swell will have dropped a lot too but there should be a good couple of feet or so still rolling through on this side of the headland before dark.
And then Sunday is full of promise!
South easterly winds are being forecast with a building swell rolling our way throughout the day. That wind might just get quite strong through the afternoon and so the swell might be stifled a little but there should still be enough to be having some serious fun on!
And it should be brighter too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
