At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet
The main difference this morning has to be the temperature drop.
The wind is still howling in, from the north west now and hence the colder temperatures, while those sharp showers are stinging through less occasionally then yesterday.
But otherwise it’s all pretty much the samey same with windblown and out of control, wild surf running into the bay and bouncing off the high tide banks.
Harlyn (0*): 4 feet
That bitingly cold north westerly wind is squealing into Harlyn this morning, tossing and turning the four feet or so of already wind blasted surf while sandblasting the beach head and car park.
It’s a wild and rugged place to cower this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:26 (1.1m) High Tide: 19:17 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 27th February 2020
Cold north westerly winds are set to continue to blast our way for most of today again, maybe calming a little just before dark. So pretty much all of our surf breaks on this coast are going to be filled only with wind blasted junk surf. If you want something cleaner you’re going to have to hop, skip and maybe jump over to the far coast in search of some offshore peelers.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
More winter storms are still queuing across the Atlantic, bringing with them a steady stream of gales and rain and mountainous seas.
Those storms are going to be busy reshaping and remodelling our coastline all week long, the torrential rain running off the land and trying to build more shapely breaks up and down the coast while those huge waves scour and gouge the beachfronts and headlands and reefs.
Once these storms have passed (and eventually they will!), then there should be a whole selection of newly shaped surf breaks to explore all the way along our coastline.
But that could be a while away yet!
In the meantime, yes, more howling winds, huge waves and grey, grey skies are expected, Harlyn continuing to put on an endless barrel fest for those quick-limbed and fearless enough to take full advantage, while Bodyboard Central is likely to continue to dish out the usual series of broken, dislocated, ruptured and torn bones, tendons and limbs.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
