At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (0*): Huge
It’s another wild and woolly one this morning with a storm ringing in our ears, salt in our eyes and sharp rain stinging our skin.
The surf is huge and out of control with huge lumps of water dancing between the Quies and leaping onto the headland.
But if you want to see how much you might enjoy these conditions if you had committed to a lifetime of intense training both physically and psychologically then have a little squint over at www.worldsurfleague.com where the Nazare tow contest is in full flow. And huge good luck to Tommy Butler and Andrew Cotton representing #teamgb in that event! It’s phenomenal that they are just out there and they’re doing so well!
Harlyn (0*): Huge
Big waves are flooding into Harlyn Bay at just about high tide, that cold wind whipping and flogging those mountainous waves into a frothing frenzy.
Inside reforms are running beneath the bridge which is always a sign of a solid surge.
But again, you might not want to go near it today ‘cos if it goes wrong – you are on your own!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:22 (0.4m) High Tide: 19:14 (7.6m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 19th March 2015
The wind is going to drop today – by about one mile an hour!
No, it should be a little calmer but still blustery as the still huge surf washes into our bays.
There will still be little chance of getting in to ride any except at the most sheltered spots and even then only if you’re capable!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Our stormy winter keeps bowling along this week with more violent winds, much colder temperatures and huge surf all punching our way.
The huge storm surf and howling winds of Monday will only slightly ease up through Tuesday and as that wind slides to a more north westerly direction we are going to feel a distinct winter chill in that still hard blowing air.
The wind will continue to blow hard for the rest of the week gradually backing westerly and eventually more south westerly by week’s end.
So the surf is going to be huge and wild and out of control pretty much all week long, dropping in size only for a while during midweek before rebuilding into the weekend.
It’s going go be a wild and woolly week with mountainous seas and strong, strong winds!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
