At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet
A nor’ westerly gale is blasting the coast this morning, that cold and biting wind clawing its way into the bays, pushing a big and lumping, mixed up swell onto the beaches.
It’s dry enough and bright enough but really cold and uncomfortable.
And the surf is just a mess of junk.
High pressure will soon be above us though and conditions will quickly calm, although the surf is still likely to be junk!
Harlyn (0*): 4 feet
The wind is screeching into Harlyn this morning spraying a saltwater and fine grained sand mix across the bay.
It’s cold and stinging and gets in your eyes but it is also refreshing and wild and energising.
But the four feet or so of wind trashed surf is of no interest to anyone today.
That ocean is definitely a place best avoided this morning!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 5th February 2020
We could just be enjoying some very pleasant conditions today with a light offshore breeze forecast to be drifting across from the south east to meet the remnants of those hard blowing wind swells.
We could very well be gliding across the smooth faces of very pleasant two to three foot waves today, all under a crisp and clear, radiant winter sun!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We can hope to expect a day or two of calm and cleaner conditions this week but not until we’ve endured a few days of storming north westerly winds and lumping out-of-control swells.
Surfers on the far coast are going to be loving life while we will be being battered and shaken by more blustering onshore winds.
The weather should be dry enough for most of the time but that wind is going to make it all feel that bit colder.
But by midweek it should all come good, even if only for a day or two with Thursday maybe ending up being the highlight of the whole week, a decent three foot swell being shaped nicely by south south easterly breezes. But make the most of it ‘cos it ain’t going to last long!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
