At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
And this morning another storm is blowing a hooly across the bay. But today the wind is sandblasting in from the south south east and so at least it’s slightly (very slightly!) milder.
This side to offshore roaring wind is still ripping the surf apart just from a different direction today.
And those squally downpours are stinging too.
Saying all that, if you were to stumble across a more sheltered setup, somewhere with higher dunes maybe, or a differently configured headland (do I really have to spell this out?!), then you could just score some really good surf this morning.
Or you could wait for higher tide here.
But of course, the wind will be back onshore, screaming in from the north west by then!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
That wind is screaming in from the south south east, blasting into those small, one foot or two foot but super hollow little waves. If you have the patience, the sets are marching in at almost twice that size but you do have to wait, and wait.
And that wind is super strong.
But, it is hollow. When it’s not closing out.
And it does look like fun. If you can catch them.
And it should get better. Before it gets worse.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:07 (1.5m) High Tide: 16:59 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 15th February 2018
Screaming westerly winds and real big, thick and heavy, chopped out waves.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Another windy and wintery, wild week of storm surf is waiting for us again this week.
The north westerlies of Sunday should soon switch to south westerly through Monday, allowing Harlyn to tempt the school half-term groms in for some fun.
By Tuesday though those north westerly gales will be shrieking down the coastline, blowing out any chance of clean shaped surf anywhere on this coast.
The earlybirds might catch some good surf on Wednesday morning, a small window of offshores cleaning up some decent sized surf for an hour or two before reverting back to onshore.
And then more north westerlies.
A mix of wintery conditions and more howling onshores will see the week out but with the occasional chance of moments of clean, good surf, if you’re keen enough to chase it.
So, a bit of a wild and woolly week for the groms out of school but with enough surf to keep the stoke levels running high with a bit of searching and seeking!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
