At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
A biting cold northerly wind is trammelling down the coast this morning, those steely cold fingers of winter looking to get you as they weave amongst the dunes and headlands.
Yep it is cold out there and it feels even colder!
But that wind is also scooting in more from the side, just about offshore and so at least there is some shape to the three feet of close together, grey/blue, wintery swell. The odd peak is hitting every inch of three feet before looping and peeling and bouncing off across the beach.
While others just close-out.
The sky is brightening, the waves are bouncy but fun and with a bit of luck there’s a dry wetsuit somewhere.
What else are you going to do?
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of broken up and chopped out, grey and uninviting surf is being bundled and shoved into Harlyn Bay by that icy northerly wind this morning.
It’s cold and dark and off-putting but it still has that beauty, even on a cold and windy, wintery morning.
But there’s no surf. It’s the other side of the headland for surf today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:06 (2.1m) High Tide: 13:30 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 30th November 2017
More northerly wind, more cold temperatures, more junk surf.
We might just luck into some cleaner breaking lefts coming through at the usual breaks but it is still likely to be cold and bumpy and not that easy.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
These northerly winds are set to continue through the rest of this week but hopefully we might eventually enjoy some more offshore (north easterly) conditions as we go into the back half of the week.
So it’s going to feel cold, really very cold!
But the water temperatures are still (relatively) mild, a good wetsuit will offer all the protection that you might need (and we have a few fabulous suits that we are clearing right now if you don’t have one!) and some of the waves should be much, much cleaner than they have been for a while.
Throw in some brighter skies and calmer winds and things are suddenly starting to look quite okay! Not great but very okay. Especially if you can find a way out of the wind!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
