At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 8 to 10 feet.
A brisk north westerly wind is keeping temperatures low this morning but there some gaps between those cloud mountains, allowing some cheering blue sky to give some hope!
The surf is a blown out mess again, a bigger blown out mess today though with eight to ten feet of junked out slop-surf churning up the beach.
You don’t want to be going in here today!
Harlyn (1*): 4 to 6 feet.
The north westerly wind is coldly basting in here this morning as well, turning the four to six feet of grey and mixed up surf into an unpredictable mess of lumpy waves.
The afternoon tide might allow it to be just a tiny bit cleaner but not enough to be tempting.
A trip south is our best bet!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:58 (0.5m) High Tide: 18:49 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 28th February 2017
The wind might just ease a little in the morning and, if we’re really lucky it might just swing offshore, if only for an hour or two!
But that is still unlikely to be enough to make for clean surf conditions though. The onshores of the last few days, mixed with increasing tide heights will make for a lot of water still moving around the bays. it will probably need more than a couple of hours of offshore wind to make for anything tempting at our main breaks.
Harlyn could be fun in the afternoon though, even though the swell will have likely halved in size. There should still be more than enough getting around and into Harlyn as the wind settles south westerly, offshore there.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Blasting winds and exploding swells are going to take us into this week, the west sou’ westerly howling winds of the weekend strengthening through Monday before slipping to the north west for Tuesday. That will make it all feel a lot chillier as well as blowing out the surf at pretty much all of our local breaks.
So the magnificence of Monday’s big and offshore shaped surf at Harlyn will quickly be replaced with a chase over to the far coast on Tuesday in an attempt to find somewhere clean enough and sheltered enough!
It should easily be big enough!
Things should calm down a bit by midweek, the wind easing, although not completely disappearing, a steady west sou’ westerly for most of the time, allowing Harlyn to settle into a three foot and okay kind of rhythm.
So, as meteorological Spring arrives we should be seeing plenty of surf with mixed weather conditions, ending up probably being okay at places like Harlyn for most of the time!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
