At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
The early morning cloud cover is being shuffled aside by a blustering westerly wind to reveal wide stretches of blue sky this morning, a welcome relief after those days of dull storms.
The surf has dropped to a windblown and choppy four to five feet or thereabouts, a mixed up mess of high tide bouncing waves that might attract you in summer but not so much in mid January maybe.
But at least it looks like it might be a little drier today!
Harlyn (0*): 3 feet
The wind is fussing its way across Harlyn at high tide this morning, chopping and slopping three feet or so of lumpy and bumpy surf.
That wind is forecast to eventually ease up and back more south westerly by this afternoon so we can expect some smaller but fun surf at low tide maybe?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:03 (1.2m) High Tide: 08:32 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 16th January 2020
Gusting southerly winds are going to push and shove a mix of tatty four to five foot surf into our bays today, maybe offering some offshore hollowed ones here and there but maybe that few degrees the wrong way to allow it to be clean or organised.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gale to storm force winds are going to blast us into the start of this week with those hard blowing gusts coming from the south west.
At least that allows us the potential option of Harlyn as a surf venue but even Harlyn is likely to be big to really very big in size. Throw in that strong offshore effect there and you can tell that those waves are likely to be huge, cavernous and heavy!
Those big and windswept waves will last well into the week, the wind maybe then starting to back offshore for a few hours at our main breaks as the storm passes onwards by Thursday morning ish.
And of course by week’s end that wind will be chilling things down as it whistles down the coastline from the North, nor’ west.
So, we’ll be seeing plenty of surf this week, probably a bit too much for most people and that’s okay, we can usually find somewhere more suitable to our skill levels with a little bit of looking around!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
