At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A frisky sou’ wester is blustering its way into the bay this morning, dragging a canopy of grey over us ready to unleash some short sharp downpours on a whim.
There’s four feet or so of broken and chopped surf tumbling up the beach at low tide, all grey and uninspiring again.
Maybe Harlyn will be big enough, well it will be worth a look anyway…….
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of snapping and sharp, wind-hollowed little waves are crashing onto the almost low tide sand here this morning, real small but real pretty too.
If the wind stays from the south west then there should be some fun ones ahead of the mid-afternoon high tide but the forecasts are showing a switch to northerly at about then. So it might just not be that great by then.
If you’re keen on getting in then I’d take the smallness and snappiness of lower tide, it could well be chopped out by this afternoon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:40 (1.5m) High Tide: 15:34 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 30 January 2018
Hmm, it could just be good today. Very, very good!
The wind is forecast to ease off completely while switching to the south east, which is straight offshore at all of our better surf breaks.
With three feet of smooth and mid-teen wavelength swell gliding our way, we should be seeing some very pleasant surf. Not that big but big enough and shapely enough to tempt!
And it could be bright and sunny too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After weeks and months of predominantly north westerly winds ragging the surf along this stretch of coastline, we might actually see a moment of clean conditions at our favourite surf breaks!
You are going to have to be on it though, it probably won’t last that long before those north westerlies kick back in!
So the week should start out with a continuation of the weekend’s south westerlies, Harlyn showing some of its wintery pleasures.
But if everything goes to plan, that wind should all but disappear overnight while simultaneously changing direction to the south east. And so we should wake up on Tuesday morning to a pleasing and pretty three feet of swell, peeling and rolling off our preferred surf breaks up and down the coast.
That sun should be shining, the birds singing and the waves reeling!
If we’re lucky!
Make the most of it though, we’ll soon be back to those pesky north westerlies howling onshore and pushing a mixed up mess of more wintery surf our way for the rest of the week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
