At 6.55 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 6 feet
A fabulously bright morning is stretching along the horizon, the sky that end-of-winter deep but pale flawless blue, the sea a dark turquoise and the breeze a tickle from the south.
It is on of those mid-March mornings that feels like a body-battery recharge!
And the surf is still pumping!
Four to six feet of warped and ribbed, thick and rolling waves are tumbling into the bay, threatening a beast of a paddle but offering the occasional looping and tubing slide in return.
The bright sky helps but the water is chilly and it is a long paddle if you haven’t been on it regularly!
But the wind is forecast to slip further around the dial and so we should see crisper and sharper conditions as the day goes on. This afternoon’s tide could be tempting!
And this weekend is looking good for surf with a lot of clear weather (see the weekend forecast below (on www.constantinesurf.com)) but it is going to be cold!
So if you are feeling the need or just want a new wetsuit, we do have a good few in stock and still at massive clearance SALE prices!! But they are starting to thin out!
Mail us at [email protected] or phone us on 01841 520250 to check sizes etc. before trekking out.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 4 feet
Shifting and peaking (for Harlyn!) waves are shuffling into the bay this morning, that clear sky backdrop beckoning and teasing while a decent three to four feet of looping and slamming waves crash ashore.
The breeze is a little closer to side than offshore but that is forecast to settle more offshore though the day.
So, it’s looking good for some fun surf all day long here, adding another option to the marathon paddling sessions on offer over on the other side.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:16 (1.2m) High Tide: 17:07 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 17th March 2018
A solid wavelength three foot swell should be sturdy enough to push through the forecast easterly wind resulting in some pitching and peeling, reeling surf!
It’s unlikely to be big or anything but it should be as pretty as a picture!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
So, how keen are you this weekend?
Do you fancy some three to four feet of offshore shaped, curling and peeling, powerful groundswell, bigger and chunkier to start the weekend and only ever so gradually easing in size?
Well, you got it!
But those air temperatures are going to drop!
Like really drop!
So, Saturday will be showing a thick and chunky four to five feet of smooth and even, busy swell, hollowed and held by some brisk Easterly winds all day long.
Hopefully we should enjoy enough sunshine to counter those cold, cold winds!
By Sunday the wind is probably going to have eased its way back to the north east and it’s then that we are going to really feel the cold!
And so you are going to have to decide whether the two to three feet of peaking and peeling, turquoise surf is going to be worth the cold water paddle? It should be!
And then the wind is likely to strengthen as we start a fresh new week, the surf weakening before re-strengthening for another surge.
You’d better check your wetsuit for this weekend but if it is a little shabby and chilly we do still have a few really good suits at really good SALE prices!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
