At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 feet
The bay is filled with a dense mizzle this morning, the air milder than it has been but sodden too and silent as even the seabirds seem reticent to squeal.
A couple to three feet of onshore washed, lumpy and bumpy little waves are washing lazily into the bay with little focus or interest. The south westerly breeze is soon going to be a wind and then strengthen from there.
It might not be great here this morning but Harlyn should start to show soon enough.
Harlyn (3*): 1 to 2 feet
There is that calmness at Harlyn this morning, the air thick with mizzle, the sky and sea merging into a greyness of wet.
And there are some gorgeously shaped little waves snapping across the sand too!
Only a foot or two but a smooth and hollow foot or two of warping little waves are skipping ashore. And it’s only going to improve.
By lunchtime we should be enjoying a pleasant two to three feet of curling and hollow, grinding little surf!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:23 (2.5m) High Tide: 10:54 (5.9m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 9th February 2018
North westerly winds are going to return today, ushering in some bigger surf but destroying the shape of the four or five feet waves.
The temperatures are likely to drop agin too, leaving a little disappointment after the last few days of cleaner and better surf.
Ah well, chuck another log on the fire to keep the place warm for when we get back from the far 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!
