At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet.
It’s a moody and atmospheric one down in the bay this morning, a light but chilled northerly wind stinging in its coldness with a little downpour just out of reach, over towards the horizon, while some brighter sunshine is cheering up the beach.
The surf is a little raggedy.
Three feet, maybe four now and again with that northerly wind just taking the tops off those deep blue waves and creating a bump and some froth on those wave faces.
The forecasts are showing the wind to slowly back to the east and that would improve conditions massively – it is needed!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet.
There’s a couple of feet of sloppy and choppy little waves blustering in here this morning, eventually flopping ashore in a grey and mixed up wash.
The wind is forecast to gradually swing more easterly but that will still be onshore here and so I can’t see any improvement here any time soon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:20 (0.9m) High Tide: 18:10 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 24th February 2016
A three foot swell with steady offshore winds!
It’s looking promising for some great surf today with all of our favourite surf breaks scattered along this raggedy coast ready to shine.
The more swell exposed breaks will be that little bit bigger and more consistent while the more angled breaks might be just a wee bit smaller.
We should be enjoying some of that crisp and clear winter sunshine too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It’s all looking good for a slow and hesitant but eventually very pleasant and surf drenched start to this week!
With the wind dropping to a breeze through Monday and eventually switching offshore, that four foot swell should be grinding in at most of our favourite surf breaks. And as the week unfolds the wind should settle to the north east (offshore), gradually going more easterly for at least a couple of days, if not most of the week!
Throw some long awaited winter sunshine into the mix and it is all looking good for at least a couple of days of clean and fun, battery re-charging days of three to four feet, clean and spinning surf!
Or it could end up being a few days of utter frustration as the breezes stubbornly refuse to twitch those few degrees to the east!
I’m going with the twitch but then, you know how frequently I get it wrong!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
