Constantine (0*):  Flat 

 

At last, we caught up with everyone else!
A little flurry of beautiful, soft white snow finally fell last night turning this little pocket of coastline into a mini-winter wonderland.
So we slid and skidded and tumbled and skated our way down to the beach just to confirm that the surf is flat and the beach is white while the sky stayed grey and threatening.
And it was so cold that my phone died, so on one of the more photogenic days of the year I only have a few seconds of video.
Still, the sliding was fun!  

Thanks again for all of your massive support with our recent winter pop-up sales. There’s a whole bunch of you who are now hopefully warm and cosy in your bargain, sometimes half-price wetsuits. And with our summer stock arriving we still have a couple of rails to clear!
Our HALF-PRICE Patagonia wetsuits are pretty much all gone but we still have most sizes left in our Xcel5/4 Infinitis, Axis (which we were selling for only £199.99 but now only £175!!), 4mil Comp X and 5 mil Drylock and they are all 40% OFF!!
We also have a handful of Vissla 7Seas 5mil suits still at HALF-PRICE but there are only a handful as well as a couple of Vissla 4mil North Seas suits and just one or two 4mil 7Seas suits.
In amongst all of those we also have 30% OFF all Patagonia Clothing, including those fabulously snug and warm down or primaloft filled jackets!
And, to clear some space for new ones, we have £150 OFF all of our …LOST and Merrick surfboards!
We should be open Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting!) but if you can’t get here because of the weather mail us on des@constantinesurf.com and we can send ’em out (but you’ll have to pay postage at those prices!).

 

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat  

No, I didn’t make it around to Harlyn today, the roads were white and the tracks were ice.
But I hear that although the surf is flat, the skating was good!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 3rd March 2018  

Temperatures are probably going to only slowly increase back to normal through today, the wind staying steady and gradually backing to the south west by late afternoon.
So we should see a small increase in size to the surf through the morning, the wind staying offshore for a while, keeping that lovely shape that we have been enjoying, going more onshore by lunchtime but then the size increasing too.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see some small and clean surf around at Harlyn by the evening.  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

As almost blizzard conditions end this week, conditions are only going to slowly improve.
The wind is likely to gradually veer more to the south through Friday evening, remaining offshore from the south east through Saturday morning before settling to the south west by the afternoon. And then the wind will waver from south sou’ westerly to south south easterly through the day.
So, all of that means that temperatures will rise but only very slowly with more of a gradual, weekend long return to normality than any sudden change.
Saturday is likely to be showing a decent three feet or so of offshore shaped surf through the morning with Sunday producing bigger waves but, even though the wind should be lighter, more sloppy conditions ta the main breaks.
Harlyn might tempt a little by Sunday, only small but maybe real pretty.
And all of that is of course with these freezing temperatures. Things might be warming but only very, very slowly.
Have a greta weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
