At 7.15 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind has eased to a breeze this morning, the drizzle filled air settling as brighter skies start to show themselves.
The surf is still big, six to eight feet and more but that south westerly wind is still fresh enough onshore to make a slop of it all.
But the day is brightening and the breeze seems to be still easing so let’s have a little hop and a skip over to Harlyn…….
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
The super moon is attracting a super high tide with swell surges driving beneath the bridge at Harlyn this morning, the wind calmer than it has been for a while so allowing the run off to pull away. It might have been something else if the wind was screaming in behind those swells!
There’s three to four feet maybe of high tide bumped and warped surf jumping onto the high tide banks, the breeze not having much effect just yet. But as the tide rushes out on its seven and a half metre journey to low the breeze should sharpen up those waves to something more hollow and snappy.
It could just be fun today but that tide is going to be pulling and pushing at it all!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:02 (0.1m) High Tide: 18:53 (7.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 12th March 2020
Bigger surf is going to be pushed our way by a stronger westerly wind today, making for big and lumpy conditions even at Harlyn. We are going to feel a little chillier today too as the temperatures drop again with that wind change.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another windy and blustery week lies in store for us as we stumble headlong into mid March. But after starting out from the north west first thing on Monday that wind will quickly settle into a steady blow from the south west. Combine that with more thumping swells that are grinding our way and we have the perfect combo to produce excellent conditions for Harlyn!
South westerlies usually bring milder conditions too, if a little soggy.
Harlyn should be holding some size as we go into the week, a thick and heavy six feetish of thumping swell to start with, easing to three to four feet through midweek before storming back to real big to end the week.
It could be hard work and quite demanding for a lot of time with those thick and lumpy, solid swells rolling into the bay but by the end of a week of surfing solid and chunky hollow Harlyn you should be as nimble as a Ninja Kitten just in time for those halcyon Spring days of surf and sun that must surely be just around the corner?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
