At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 feet.
And hard the wind blows again, hard the wind blows!
A strong sou’ wester is buffeting across the bay, chopping and churning the three to four feet of rolling grey surf.
Otherwise it’s a mild morning, the threat of a little rain not too far away but okay enough to be a bit of a social one; chit chatting about the whole range, from murders to telephone masts to toilet block development.
It’s all happening in St. Merryn!
But there’s not much to surf on here again this morning although that sou’ wester will be offshore at Harlyn and the surf is only going to build and build and build!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet.
Ah, it’s trying!
A couple to maybe occasionally three feet of looping and whomping, grey and frothy little snappers are crashing onto the sand. The tide is halfway out on the drop and so it’s nowhere near being at its best and with a building swell on the way along with this strong wind set offshore for the day, you have to think that it should be thick and crunchy and much bigger by this afternoon.
I think that we can safely expect to see some sand dredging and hollow, barreling action on the afternoon tide!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:03 (1.3m) High Tide: 16:55 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 26th February 2017
A six foot swell being driven by howling south westerly winds always points towards a fun winter Sunday at Harlyn.
We should be enjoying some stand up barrels crashing through here all day long! Weakening just a little on the dropping tide, bigger on the push, it is promising to be a heavy day at the bay!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A weekend of gusting and sometimes squally south westerly winds will remind us that we are still in February!
And Harlyn loves February.
A weekend of three to six foot, hollow and barrelling Harlyn awaits, starting out at a couple of feet and clean, offshore through Saturday morning and gradually building to four to six feet by Monday.
All the time that sou’ westerly wind will be tugging and pulling at you but also blowing fresh offshore into those cylindrical, grinding Harlyn waves.
Sand dredging, shallow and thick and heavy – it could just be a board-snapping weekend this weekend at Harlyn Bay, well later on anyway!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
