At 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet.
A bright and clear but blustery and chilly morning is greeting us today, the surf a blown out mess of five to six feet and junky waves.
The wind is galloping in from the west sou’ west, moaning and groaning as it bullies its way in from the Atlantic, pushing aside all those broken and toppling waves.
No, there’s no surf here to ride today and so it’s that trek over to Harlyn again……
Also, it’s that time of year where we are rebuilding our shop team!
So if you want to join a hardworking but fun loving little crew of happy shop workers then pop in to see us or drop some info about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Give us a shout!
And finally we are looking for a store ambassador for GlideSoul, the ladies waterwear company!
So if you are an active waterwoman and would like to get involved then apply to email@example.com or pop in and have a chat with us!
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet.
Three feet of very wintery looking surf is standing tall against that squally wind, hesitantly deciding whether to spin across the sand or just flop down and rest.
There is more of a late autumn look and feel to it all rather than the early Spring that we are all craving.
But the wind should settle just a bit more to the south west and that swell should smooth out as the weather settles too.
This afternoon and evening could bring much more enjoyable conditions but it’s okay in the meantime too!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:44 (1.8m) High Tide: 08:25 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 30th March 2016
The onshore winds should calm to not much more than a breeze through today, unfortunately a north west breeze but only light.
And so the still chunky surf, although not too choppy is still going to be more than a little sloppy. The weather isn’t likely to be all that either!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Storm Kate blew through over Easter Sunday night, causing some bother on the South Coast for Easter Monday morning and leaving a gusting west nor’ wester to mess up the surf here through Monday morning.
The surf though hasn’t been that big. Big enough and messy enough to be a little dangerous to the unfamiliar but just thick and lumpy and bouncy for a lot of the regulars.
Apart from those Harlyn barrels of Sunday and Toby (Donachie) seemed to be dialled into those hollow caverns all day long.
So, as we go into Easter Week, those windy and damp and unsettled conditions continue.
Tuesday will probably see a replay of those hard blowing sou’ westers creating hollow, hollow conditions at Harlyn with more four foot caverns to explore.
By midweek the wind is likely to have reverted back to that annoying north west direction, cold as well as surf destroying on this coast but shape forming for the south coast – if enough swell can get around there.
And then the back half of the week is starting to look a bit more settled.
So, there should be plenty of surf this week again, even if it is looking like a continuation of more wintery conditions! Keep the neoprene on, it’s still a bit chilly out there!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
