At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
Another grey and drizzly morning is greeting us this morning, a solemn barrier of mizzle limiting the view but a brisk sou’ westerly breeze trying to shove it all away and maybe promising better for later.
At least it’s milder today, if a little damp around the edges.
Three or four feet of grey and sloppy waves are wandering lazily into the bay, tripping over themselves as they dither and stumble, that breeze strong enough to create a mess and is probably only going to grow stronger.
But a brisk sou’ wester combined with a building swell always point to one (main) break locally; Harlyn!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
Snappy and hollow little waves can be seen through the gloom of a damp and brooding, mizzle filled winter’s morning.
A couple of feet of smooth and grindy little surf is cracking onto the low tide sand with the south westerly wind holding those waves till the last possible moment.
The wind is forecast to stay south westerly and the swell is on the build so I think that it is safe to assume that the surf should only improve here as the day goes on!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:09 (2.7m) High Tide: 13:28 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 11th February 2018
Big swells are on their way to us with six to eight feet of thick and wintery wavse expected today. Unfortunately the wind is likely to have backed to the north west, onshore all along the coast.
If you want some clean waves to ride then we are going to have to head on over to the other coast.
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!
