Constantine (0*): 10 feet
at 6.50 a.m:
A wild and noisy morning is unfolding around us, the wind blasting in from the north west, churning the grey/blue sea into a maelstrom of storminess.
It is one of those mornings when you feel properly alive, that stinging wind chill blasting any exposed flesh, the roar of that gale drowning the deep-toned throb of that massive lorry unloading the lifeguard huts.
Yes, British Summer Time has arrived and so too will the lifeguards soon enough. Harlyn is already guarded.
So, you’re not going to surf here today, it’s a ‘Victory at Sea’ scene, best left to the seascape artists and dog walkers and storm watchers, bracing themselves against the wobbly fencing.
The south coast might be a goer though? If you can find somewhere down below, tucked away from this storm?
Harlyn (0*): 6 feet plus
The surf is roaring in here this morning, an angry sea leaping tall as those grey and lumpy swells batter their way around the headland.
The open ocean swells look big as they crash across the islands, a vast peak rearing up a mile or two out.
And there’s a good six feet plus of surf thumping onto the sand at a low looking half tide on the drop.
It is likely to be even bigger once the tide starts to push later this morning and by then the sky should be a whole lot brighter too.
But there’s not going to be much surfing fun here today, it’s cold and grey and damp and stormy and those waves are just waiting to demolish anything in their way.
The south coast is the only option and even down there you will have to find some shelter from this wind.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:21 (1.9m) High Tide: 16:13 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 1st April 2015
The wind will have eased up a little today but only a little.
We should be enjoying a bright enough day but that still chill north westerly wind is going to be strong enough to ruin the surf all along this coast.
So the south coast is likely to be our best bet for a surf once more, if you can find those sheltered, out of the wind spots.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The storms of the weekend are going to only slowly ease as we go into the week, those strong to howling north westerly, going westerly and then south westerly winds continuing to blow in too hard for any of the main surf breaks to have a chance.
A Harlyn week awaits!
Fairly typical Harlyn conditions are going to be our staple for the week, that gusting wind showing off all of Harlyn’s moods.
There’s going to be plenty of waves pouring into the bay, quite big to start the week, gradually easing in size and strength as we go through the week.
So, Monday; big and windy, Tuesday; big and windy, Wednesday; big and windy, Thursday; big and windy, Friday; Onshore everywhere.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
