At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
It’s a Beastie Boys, headphone-rattling kind of morning out there this morning with a vicious nor’ wester of a blow stinging and biting its way across the headland while noisy hailstones sting and bite their way through the air. It’s not comfortable nor cosy but it is still a fun place to be, even with the worst case of man-flu ever diagnosed.
If you are looking to go surfing though, you’ve picked the wrong place today! You’re going to have to head south, across to the far coast in search of something cleaner, something more organised, something surfable!
The only waves around here today are big and lumpy, windswept and out of control things, all grey and white and filled with the chill of winter.
Harlyn (0*): 3 feet
The wind is shrieking into the bay here this morning as well, a violent and bone chilling nor’ wester of a blow making a mess of the couple to three feet of blown-out junk surf.
No, your only option of anything remotely fun to surf on lies over on the far coast again today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:41 (2.7m) High Tide: 12:04 (5.6m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 10th February 2018
South westerly winds are likely to be blowing milder air our way today, milder but maybe damper, although we should see at least a little brightness too.
Those sou’ westerlies are going to strengthen the surf too, so although our main breaks are going to be completely blown to pieces, our sheltered spots should be three to four feet and cooking.
And for us, that is Harlyn!
Be warned though, the school half-term holidays kick off this weekend, so we are likely to have bundles of over-excited groms frothing their way through the line-up for the next week or so! It could just be busy with these sou’ westerly winds and chunking swells adding to the mix!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A wet ‘n windy weekend is likely to be kicking off the school half-term holidays this weekend with south westerly winds whistling in through Saturday, switching north westerly for Sunday.
With a lumpy five feet of swell aiming our way, Harlyn should start to reel on Saturday morning, the wind hollowing out the three to four foot waves that grind their way onto the beach.
It definitely looks like a typical winter’s Saturday at Harlyn with fun for everyone in those wet ‘n windy but hollow and reeling waves.
Make the most of it though because that wind is going to let us down on Sunday again!
With big swells rolling our way the north westerly winds are going to be chopping and slopping those waves at all of our local surf breaks.
It’s a south coast day for sure if you want to go surfing!
But the wind will be back to the south west agin for the start of the week, showing good surf at Harlyn and keeping the air temperatures a little higher while maybe even allowing some bright and cheery weather through too!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
