At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 feet
The sky is bright, the breeze is light(ish), four feet of happy looking surf is rolling ashore and it is still all a bit chilly out there.
That breeze is still fluttering in from the north west, still onshore but with nothing like the bite of the last few days. Give it a couple of hours and we should be enjoying a more south westerly breeze, still onshore here but offshore over the headland, if it’s big enough!
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
A couple of feet of chopped and loose little waves are slopping ashore as the tide drops to low and the early morning onshore wind makes a mess.
Give it a couple of hours and we should see some fun little snappy ones to jump around on as the wind shifts to the south west, offshore here.
The half-term groms are going to be loving life here this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:40 (2.2m) High Tide: 15:37 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 13th February 2018
These north westerly winds that have plagued us all winter are becoming more than a bit tedious now. It has to be time to start enjoying a more southerly airflow surely?
But not yet.
Blustery north westerly winds are going to be pushing and tripping the six feet plus of dishevelled and out of control wintery waves.
South coast again, anyone?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Another windy and wintery, wild week of storm surf is waiting for us again this week.
The north westerlies of Sunday should soon switch to south westerly through Monday, allowing Harlyn to tempt the school half-term groms in for some fun.
By Tuesday though those north westerly gales will be shrieking down the coastline, blowing out any chance of clean shaped surf anywhere on this coast.
The earlybirds might catch some good surf on Wednesday morning, a small window of offshores cleaning up some decent sized surf for an hour or two before reverting back to onshore.
And then more north westerlies.
A mix of wintery conditions and more howling onshores will see the week out but with the occasional chance of moments of clean, good surf, if you’re keen enough to chase it.
So, a bit of a wild and woolly week for the groms out of school but with enough surf to keep the stoke levels running high with a bit of searching and seeking!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
