It’s a brighter ’n breezier one this morning but chillier too. The wind is gusting in from the west north west, bringing that colder air down our way.
The surf is junk again as well, four to five feet of onshore mixed and messed stuff rolling around the beaches with no clear direction.
The south coast is our only option for some cleaner conditions today and, assuming that there’s enough swell getting around there, it should be really quite good!

Harlyn (1*):  3 feet.

This west north westerly wind is chopping the surf out here as well.
There’s three feet or so of directionless and lazy looking surf washing onto the sand, a mixed up wash of wall-less waves randomly breaking wherever and whenever.
Nope, it’s the south coast today for clean conditions, it’s going to be choppy at all of our north coast breaks, all day long!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 3rd February 2016

It looks like we are in for another day of north westerlies, those brisk onshores making a mess of any surf on this coast.
The south coast will be where the surf action is today! Theses north westerly winds are offshore down there, so just find somewhere that is picking up the swell and away we go!
It should be bright and cheerful all day today too!
It has been a Winter of South Coast Surfaris (is there already a company with that name – It sounds familiar!?)!!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

This first week of February looks set to continue the theme of the never-ending storm with those howling onshore winds carrying on well into the week and probably beyond.
West sou’ west, going north westerly gales are happily blowing their way towards our already battered little coastline, pushing more thick and lumpy, out of control windswells with them.
So the surf is likely to continue in the ‘big’ to ‘very big’ range all week long, those winds battering and those swell lines every which way except the right way.
Harlyn is going to be our sheltered haven but even Harlyn is going to be battered and broken for some of the time this week!
So, big and thick, grinding surf will be offering loads of barrel opportunities at Harlyn to start the week, with attention maybe swinging south by midweek before returning to big Harlyn again to end the week.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
