At 7.30 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 1 to 2 feet
Another clear and sunny, calm and peaceful winter’s day is brightening the coastline this morning but the temperature has dropped! The car is showing -3 deg C but it is a dry air so there’s little frost.
So, is it too cold to paddle out in that beautiful but small, immaculately shaped little surf?
A foot or two of curling and looping, reeling little waves are beckoning and I’m guessing that there is a little more strength and speed to them than their size might indicate.
I think that the longboard gliders are going to have some serious fun while the lightweight shralpers are going to have enough to get airborne (if they’re good enough!).
That offshore breeze is likely to become a wind soon enough and it is absolutely freezing!
And just a quick ‘Thank You‘ to all of you who dived into the shop in between surfs (and how good was that this weekend!) to enjoy a bargain in our end of season clear out sale!
Hopefully you will all be warm and cosy in those snugly winter wetsuits and I hope the boards fly for you Leo and Pete!
I’ll have a shufty through our stock and see if we can throw something together for next weekend again! We do have a couple of super smart surfboards that have been hanging around a while, so we might do a giveaway know-down price on those too! So keep an eye on our site and social media streams if you fancy another bargain weekend.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s all but flat around at Harlyn this morning, that fresh easterly breeze chilling the air and slopping those tiny little waves.
It’s the other side again for a surf today, it is pretty small around there but beautiful and and very surfable.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:17 (2.1m) High Tide: 14:15 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 27th February 2018
An action replay of Monday should be waiting to tempt us again today.
Small waves should be immaculately shaped by those continuing offshore, easterly winds with a foot or two of wind hollowed little peelers reeling across our favourite surf breaks.
But it is going to be cold!
That ‘Beast from the East’ of an ice cold blow should be starting to make itself felt through today. So you might just want to pick somewhere out of the wind and make sure that your wetsuit is 100% if you’re tempted to glide those pretty, peeling little waves today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those beautiful conditions of the weekend should last well into the start of this week, that beautiful, clear winter’s sunshine cheering us all up while Easterly breezes continue to hollow those little waves that are expected to peel across our favourite surf breaks.
Unfortunately those little waves are going to be exactly that though – little.
Maybe even going flat through Tuesday for a while.
And although the weather should be pretty and bright and beautiful as we start the week, it is going to be cold!
And by Tuesday that clear sky might just start to fill with thicker clouds. And that could lead to…… snow!
It would be nice to see some proper white stuff down here, it’s quite a rare thing and fun for kids of all ages! But we will have to wait and see for that one!
And then, of course, by the back half of the week we will be seeing the return of gusting south westerlies bringing milder but damper conditions as well as some much bigger surf.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
