Constantine (0*):  Big, stormy and blown out!

It’s a wild and stormy one this morning, the wind lashing across the headland and the surf exploding over the Quies but it’s bright and cheery too, in amongst those short but sharp downpours!
There’s a biggish swell in amongst the turmoil out there but it is completely messed up by these strong westerly winds. A mixed up miss mash of churned and wild surf is all that you can hope for around here today and you don’t want to go getting tangled up in all that!
So, let’s trek on round to Harlyn again…..

But before we go, check this out for a job opportunity if you’re interested:
We have been rebuilding our shop team here for the 2014 season and it’s all going well with a few new characters to help you find what you’re looking for. But we are still looking for that important but elusive person to fill the role of team leader!
Someone with just a bit more, an interested and interesting person, capable of shepherding us all along. Great with customers, great with staff, understanding of the Groms and with an eye for style. A knowledge of how a wetsuit should fit and what fins do what for a surfboard would be useful, an ability to get on with everyone more vital.

If you’re interested then drop a mail to [email protected], phone on 01841 520250 or drop in on us for a natter!

The tide is halfway out but looks lower than that, the surf being exposed to the violent blasts of that wild westerly wind.
There’s four feet or so of swell crashing in but it’s a raggedy mess of surf that’s crashing ashore. Right now it’s not a place that you’d want to be surfing today but it might just improve a little as the tide rises through this afternoon. It won’t get great or anything but it just might end up being a blown about four feet of crunchiness!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  10:06  (1.8m)               High Tide:  16:04  (6.2m)

Surf Forecast for Monday 12th May  2014

The wind is likely to slip to the north today, a north west and chilling wind blowing out the surf today.
The only place that might have any surf that would be of interest is the South Coast although we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s enough swell getting around there!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

The winds are going to be having an effect on the surf all through the coming week, those blowing west and sou’ west winds sliding to the north, that chill direction that ruins the surf all along this coast.
And so a blustery and blower week kicks off with the swell gradually dropping away as we go along. Messy and out of control surf conditions are expected well into midweek when the wind should weaken if not change direction.
You know all those jobs that didn’t get done while we enjoyed that seemingly endless run off great surf a wee while ago?
Well, they can be done now!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
