at 7.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 feet
It’s a breezy and blustery but otherwise quite pleasant day with a brisk sou’ westerly threatening to unleash a little dampness here and there but mainly blowing bright and mild weather our way.
The surf is a blown out mess of raggedy, jaggedy, mixed and messed up waves, maybe three feet in height but who cares, it’s hardly going to be worth the paddle!
But then again, it is a rare thing to come out wishing that you hadn’t bothered!
And it is bright enough and cheery enough and mild enough between the showers to make it tempting!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A blustery sou’ westerly wind and a building swell are just the ingredients to produce a fun day at Harlyn.
And so it should be today!
The swell isn’t pushing through yet but give it some time. Those little one to two foot waves that are ricocheting off the high tide bank should double in size by lunchtime and double again by this evening.
We could be ducking some wind hollowed boomers around here by tea time!
Meanwhile the sky is bright (between showers!) the wind is fresh and offshore, the beaches have quietened after the Bank Holidays and it’s all looking good!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:44 (1.1m) High Tide: 20:36 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 9th May 2019
Ah, those pesky north westerly winds are going to return today, a cold and fresh blow of cold and biting air that’s no good to man nor beast on the north coast!
So the best that we can expect is to enjoy watching a windswept and blown out, angry sea of big but shapeless waves bouncing along the coast.
Lucky that the other coast faces the way that it does!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Small but immaculate surf conditions will be easing us into this week, those perfect conditions of Monday and Tuesday slowly deteriorating as we hit midweek with the gradual return of onshore, north westerly winds.
So Bank Holiday Monday should be as pretty as a postcard with small but immaculate surf along with beautiful, if a little chilly weather.
Those conditions should carry us through Tuesday and into Wednesday when the wind wills tart to strengthen and back north westerly by the evening.
Then follows a couple of days of blown out surf, fresh winds and more mixed weather.
But the weekend is already starting to show some promise with more summer like conditions and pleasant enough surf!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
