Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind has eased this morning and the sky is brightening in patches but occasional short, sharp downfalls of cold and piercing rain are emptying on top of us too.
The surf is big, not that huge and slow motion stuff, it’s more of a solid and workaday kind of thick and lumpy, winter swell, rolling and bouncing through in the eight to ten feet size range but looking more six to eight feet. I think you would get a surprise if you really wanted to paddle out there this morning but then it would be a massive paddle battle for those super short rides, a bumpy drop in and fade at best (or that’s what my mindsurfing predicts anyway!).
Let’s wander over the headland to Harlyn and see how that is breaking this morning……
And thanks to all of you from far and wide who seem to have enjoyed and taken full advantage of our recent series of Winter Weekend Pop-Up Sales!
I have a feeling that if we hadn’t been running these little events we might not have seen a customer for a while! And that’s the point of them, just to shake things up a bit in what has been a mucky period of local surf and weather!
So we are trying to think of what we can do for this coming weekend!?
We do still have a selection of wetsuits, getting low on some sizes and models of Patagonia and only a couple of hooded Vissla suits but plenty of 5/4 and 4/3 unhooded Vissla as well as loads of Xcel suits in all sizes and models!
So, how about continuing the HALF-PRICE sale on Vissla and Patagonia and 40% OFF Xcel!!?
Add in a massive £150 OFF each our new Lost and Channel Island surfboards and 20% to 30% OFF most of our accessories too and we should have the makings of another Super Flash Sale for this Weekend!! We still have a whole bunch of HALF-PRICE footwear and can add in some sizes of wetsuit boots to those as well!
So, what do you think?
Let us know if there’s anything else we can do (that’s reasonably affordable!!) to coax you through our doors!?
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Some chunky waves are churning their way into Harlyn this morning, the wind lighter and from the west sou’ west and so helping to hold those waves tall before they spin off into either close-out heaven or shorebreak hell.
You gotta love Harlyn in Winter, those three to four feet waves are being washed aside by much bigger clean-up sets every so often, just to keep you on your toes.
The tide should sort out the light bumpiness and early morning warp that is on some of those set waves, leaving a day of fun surf with some brighter weather than we have enjoyed for a while!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:09 (2.2m) High Tide: 10:45 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 26th January 2018
Ah, just when we thought that there might be a change in conditions settling in, that wind will be pushing back to north westerly, onshore everywhere on this stretch of coast.
There’s plenty of swell rolling around but that wind is going to chew it and trash it making for not very enjoyable surf conditions.
If you want something better you’re going to have to aim for the far coast again!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend could just end up being one of two distinct halves.
Fresh westerly winds are likely to be blowing through a four foot swell on Saturday, the weather dreary with plenty of drizzle and mizzle. Harlyn is going to be our best bet for somewhere to surf with a sloppy three feet of bumpy and lightly slopped surf expected there.
By Sunday that wind is likely to be more south westerly and should have eased while the swell should have built and the weather brightened!
It could just end up being a much better day of surf and weather than we have enjoyed for a little while at Harlyn on Sunday!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
