A gusting and blustery north westerly wind is growling across the headland again this morning, the cold air matching the lo-vis greyness of the wintery sea.
The surf is about three feet, maybe a bit bigger if you were actually out there but it’s a mess again. The wind is swirling those broken waves around the bay, bouncing those grey and lazy waves onto the rocks and heaving them onto the sand.
It’s a sloppy mess out there again this morning, a smaller sloppy mess than the last few days but it’s not attractive in any way.
The south coast is always our preferred option when a north westerly is blowing but I don’t yet know if it will be big enough down there today.
Yep, it’s a damp and cold, windswept morning out there this morning, probably best left to the ramblers and rangers.

 

Harlyn (0*):  1 to 2 feet

The wind is groaning in here this morning too.
That north westerly wind is pushing straight into the bay and messing up the one to two feet of already choppy and messy surf.
Harlyn can be fun in an onshore wind with loads of bumps to launch airs from and a bit more space to ride across But that wind is cold and noisy this morning and the sky is dark and grey and threatening and the surf is mixed up and messy.
But it is an option.

Surf Forecast for Good Friday, 3rd April 2015

We should be enjoying a brighter day but that north westerly wind is still going to carry on blowing cold air straight through the surf along this coastline.
With a continuing three to four foot swell being pushed and tugged by the wind, the south coast option could be marginal. It might not be big enough, or it might!
But it is going to be another day of mixed up and messy surf all along this coast again today!

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

North westerly winds have been haunting us all week.
That cold and noisy, onshore wind has destroyed any chance of clean surf on this coast and has been a bit too strong for a lot of breaks on the south coast too.
But hopefully the wind should start to back off as we go into the back half of the week, still waiting until the weekend before changing direction but at least easing a little in strength.
There’s going to be plenty of waves pouring into the bays but they continue to be raggedy and mixed up waves, bouncing and slopping around with little shape or direction to them.
At least until the weekend.
So; Thursday; big and windy, Friday; Onshore everywhere, Saturday; maybe offshore and sunny, Sunday; small, clean and wonderful!
The weekend is starting to look good!
Have a great Easter weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
