At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
The wind has eased this morning but it is still gusting in from the north west, still chilly and there’s still a lot of dampness just over there.
And so the decent sized, four to five feet and bigger of grey surf is still being bundled into the bay, a mixed up mess of broken and choppy waves with no real direction to them.
The forecast is for the wind to slip to the south west this afternoon which should at least clean Harlyn up, it is big enough to get some decent waves in there later.
Harlyn (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of choppy and bumpy surf is bumbling into the bay, that north westerly wind still onshore and cold. But the sky is trying to clear and the wind should continue to ease as it sings back to the south west by lunchtime.
So this afternoon’s tide could or should show some half decent surf.
Just before dark could be good.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:22 (1.5m) High Tide: 08:00 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 30th January 2020
It could turn out to be a bit of a mixed up day today with maybe a pleasant start first thing.
The breeze might just be offshore at the main breaks through dawn and into late morning, allowing some of that by now fairly close fetch and weakish swell to break more cleanly.
But then the breeze will swing south westerly bringing in a mix of mist and murk with the evening tide. If there’s enough size to get some waves into Harlyn then that should be fun but it might only be small.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
I hope that you made the most of last week’s calm conditions!?
Because we are quickly back to those wild and woolly winter winds along with plenty more driving rain.
Starting out from the south west, the wind is likely to bluster in backing more to the north west by Tuesday and staying that way through midweek. We might just enjoy a calmer day on Thursday with maybe some offshore breezes to help shape the much smaller waves.
And then back to a gusty sou’ westerly going more west to end the week.
So, a day or two of crunchy Harlyn, followed by some hopefully good south coast action for another couple of days with a quick few hours interlude of main break action over here before returning to Harlyn.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
