At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
The wind has finally calmed and the sky has cleared, not completely, there’s still a very fresh west north westerly wind chilling the air and large chunks of that sky are a darker shade of grey too but it is better than it has been.
And the surf is like that too, you can see how big it has been when you compare this morning’s seemingly nothing swell and then gauge it to be plenty big enough at four to six feet at least.
But it is still a mixed up mess of leftover storm swell – with more to come!
No, it’s a day for catching up on the last lot of storm damage and preparing for the next one to come!
And did you watch the Nazare tow-in contest yesterday!!?
That was beyond reality with those mountainous waves being almost tamed by a handful of dedicated big wave specialists.
Well done to Tommy Butler and Andrew Cotton representing Team GB – just being invited to that event is awesome!
And get well soon Alex Botelho.
Oh and a very Snappy Surf Day to one Mr Bob Slater, Kelly to his friends – 48!
48!! And still in the top handful of dynamic surfers on the planet. Unbelievable!
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind has dropped but it is still screaming into Harlyn this morning, pitching and tossing the four feet or so of leftover swell from yesterday’s blow.
It’s very wintery looking and unpredictable as the backwash steepens those set waves at high tide.
It is as always Avery pleasant place to stop and settle your thoughts for the day but there’s not much in the way of surf to ride.
That could change by lunchtime though, the wind is forecast to back to the south west through midday……
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:04 (0.5m) High Tide: 19:56 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 13th February 2020
Another little blow should blast us into the morning with more westerly gales expected by first light. And watch the swell build again as the advance guard of storm Dennis starts to push more huge swells our way.
It’ll be huge and blown out again by this afternoon!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Our stormy winter keeps bowling along this week with more violent winds, much colder temperatures and huge surf all punching our way.
The huge storm surf and howling winds of Monday will only slightly ease up through Tuesday and as that wind slides to a more north westerly direction we are going to feel a distinct winter chill in that still hard blowing air.
The wind will continue to blow hard for the rest of the week gradually backing westerly and eventually more south westerly by week’s end.
So the surf is going to be huge and wild and out of control pretty much all week long, dropping in size only for a while during midweek before rebuilding into the weekend.
It’s going go be a wild and woolly week with mountainous seas and strong, strong winds!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
