At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s not as bad as the forecasts have been making out – yet.
The wind is becoming a little blustery, lightly gusting up from the south right now but strengthening already and possibly twitching a little to the west too.
But, right now there’s one guy out enjoying a fun looking solo session in three to four feet of still smooth faced and occasionally hollow, reeling peaks.
I’m guessing that by this afternoon we will be trekking around to Harlyn as the surf picks up while the wind strengthens as it veers onshore.
But right now it’s very okay!
Harlyn (2*): 1 foot
A foot or so of smooth and glassy little waves are whip cracking onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, the breeze light so far and still offshore.
The waves should build slowly throughout the day, the wind drifting to the south west which is still offshore here.
So we are likely to be favouring Harlyn by this afternoon and probably for a few days to come!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:19 (2.1m) High Tide: 10:02 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 26th April 2019
Strong onshore winds are going to be pushing a thick and growing, angry swell our way peaking in size through midday.
Those westerly winds are going be blustering in all day long as the waves rage and roar our way.
Harlyn will be our only option locally today and that might not be as you would like it either!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It looks as though we’re in for a bright but stormy weekend – a bit of a contrast to last weekend’s holiday bliss!
Westerly and north westerly gales will be blowing big and getting bigger, stormy waves our way all the way through.
Ten feet plus of out of control storm surf is likely to be pounding the whole coastline throughout the weekend.
So only those super protected, tucked away little spots are going to be coming alive, those places that you often only hear about afterwards – they are going to be the places to aim for.
And Harlyn of course.
Harlyn should be big and wild too but is likely to be blown raggedy with this wind. The south westerlies of Friday will soon be blowing westerly by Saturday and North Westerly by Sunday, onshore everywhere, even at Harlyn.
