Constantine (3*): 4 feet
at 7.05 a.m.
St Piran’s Day is starting off bright and beautiful with loads of early morning sunshine and lots of pale blue sky.
The wind is light and breezing in from the south west just putting a little ruffle on the three to maybe four feet of otherwise quite lined up surf.
This morning’s surf is much better than I was expecting, and the tide has dropped out past the headland exposing the swells to the breeze. As long as the wind doesn’t strengthen too much then we should have loads of fun surf to enjoy. Saying that though, the wind is likely to strengthen at least a bit through early afternoon as the land warms up in this lovely sunshine.
So, ‘Gool Peran Lowen’, have a great St. Piran’s Day!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
It is lovely around here this morning too!
It’s amazing what a difference a little sunshine can make, or probably it’s more likely that the disappearance of that annoying wind that seems to have been howling all winter is having more effect.
Anyway there’s a couple of feet or so of very attractive, small but fun looking and glassy surf riffling across the shore.
It is nice to have the choice this morning; bigger but bumpier waves to be ridden on the other side of the headland or smaller but more sharp and shapely surf over here. A longboard session could be fun here today if you pick the right tide!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:47 (1.1m) High Tide: 17:37 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 6th March 2015
The wind is likely to freshen today, a medium strength south westerly is expected to blow all day, messing up the westside but smartening up the sheltered breaks like Harlyn.
The swell is likely to have but quite a bit overnight, a more solid, thick and lumpy six feet of rolling swell expected throughout the day.
So, three to four feet and offshore Harlyn looks to be our pick of the day, a bright and sunny day of punchy and fun surf!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The wind seems to be settling into a south westerly direction as the week winds down and the weekend fast approaches.
The swell is likely to continue to roll our way, a deep low pressure system up to the north west of us continuing to spin six foot plus swells in our direction while high pressure starts to build closer to home.
And so the skies should clear allowing plenty of early Spring sunshine to cheer us up all the way through the weekend and well into next week.
All of this points to Harlyn as being the most likely best proposition on this stretch of coast and it should be really very good there throughout the end of the week and all the way through the weekend.
So, four feet plus, offshore and sunny!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
