At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
It all seems a little brighter and calmer and cheerier this morning. There’s still a light to fresh sou’ westerly bending the marram grass but not nearly as fresh as it has been.
With four to five feet and bigger sets rumbling through and that wind fresh enough to bump and lump the surf, there’s still a beast of a paddle for what looks like not that much of a reward. Or you could see it as a fun training session?
Or you might want to wander over to Harlyn where it should be smaller but much cleaner.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of smooth and hollow little rippers are snapping onto the low tide sand here this morning, that light wind breezing straight offshore.
There’s nobody in just yet but there’s a little action in the car park already and I’m sure that it will busy up as the tide rolls in and hopefully the waves grow a little.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:31 (2.0m) High Tide: 14:28 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 29th January 2018
Another Harlyn day is waiting with a fresh sou’ wester predicted to blow through for most of the day, inevitably switching back to the north west by dark.
But before that we should be enjoying another Harlyn day filled with three feet of clean, fairly smooth, hollow and snappy waves.
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!
