At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 feet
And January is on its way out already, leaving pretty much the way it arrived too with strong winds driving heavy rain squalls across the fields and bays.
Yep, it’s another breezy and blowy one, a hard gusting westerly shaking the hedges and shuffling the grass. And so the surf is a mixed up mess of junk again with three to four feet of windswept and grey, chopped and diced swell rolling into the bay.
That wind is chilly too!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of crumbly little waves are shuffling onto the sand here this morning, the wind more sideshore than on, those sloppy little waves looking weak too.
It might all improve just a little on this afternoon’s tide as more swell hits us but that wind is forecast to strengthen and settle more to the north too.
The south coast will probably end up being the better option this afternoon.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:34 (0.7m) High Tide: 17:26 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 1st February 2018
More north westerlies are going to keep the surf junky again today, that little pulse of swell weakening again overnight, leaving three or four feet of onshore chop to try and tempt us.
And the far coast might be too small! it could still be worth a little look over there though.
Surf Conditions for the Rest 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!
