Constantine (0*):  Big and Blown Out

at 7.10 a.m.


And hard the wind blows while high the waves rise!
It is still a little stormy out there this morning, the wind blasting in from the west nor’ west, hopping and skipping over those mountainous seas, chopping and slopping everything in its reach.
It is cold and windy and dark and noisy and the surf is a blown out mess of mixed up madness around here, a lonely, bleak but still strangely beautiful place to wander at dawn on this stormy day.
Not here, not today!


Harlyn (0*):  Big and Blown Out


It’s a mad mess of mixed up surf that is washing in here today too!
Six to probably eight feet of mixed up and windblown, choppy waves are crashing to shore, the big ones lining the length of the bay before collapsing in one almighty explosion. But most of them are so choppy that they are just fragmenting into dozens of frothy wavelets before washing in.
The surf became rideable later yesterday after a blown out start and the wind is forecast to ease up today but I can’t see it being worth surfing here today. Certainly not right now, it is completely out of control but it might be worth a little look back later.
Or the better alternative would be a trip over to the far coast, again.

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 25th February 2015

It is still likely to be windy and chilly with big, mixed up and choppy surf rolling in.
The wind is more than probably going to continue to blow hard from the north west, the swell continuing to roll ashore in the ‘big’ range, six to eight feet at least.
And so it’s all eyes on the south coast again, that journey east almost becoming a commuter route!
But it could be good again over there, at the right place, at the right time, with a bit of luck!


Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

Big swells are rolling our way for the start of this week, the wind powering through from the west and north west, blowing harder and harder, driving those big, big waves into our craggy little bays and coves.
Yes, the surf is going to be big at the start of this week – very big!
As so often though, those wild winds are going to destroy any chance of getting into the surf around here anytime soon.
Our only chance of getting some cleaner stuff is to take that drive all the way over to that far coast again!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
