Light Offshore wind
Surf conditions at 7.55 a.m. on Tuesday 4th January 2014:
The calm between two storms?
It is a very pleasant morning down in the bay this morning with a light and surprisingly offshore breeze wafting against those still big, and still bumpy waves.
Yep, those waves are pretty big, six to eight feet easily with maybe ten foot sets bowling in every ten minutes or so?
The sky is bright with lots of blue and it's feeling mild and pleasant, a bit of a contrast to the drive through fairly thick sleet and then snow on my way back down the motorway last night!
Anyway, it's big and it's booming but still all a bit unruly, a little out of control. It still needs to calm down a little.
And that is unlikely to happen for a good while yet with all of the forecasts showing gale and then storm force winds kicking back in through this afternoon.
There must be some places, maybe not that far away, breaking much better than here right now. I'd get on it quick if you're near one of those places, it's not going to last very long but while the wind stays like this and with those powerful swells rolling in you could just get one of 'those' sessions!
In the meantime let's get battening what hatches we have left before slipping on over to Harlyn to check the more sheltered conditions around there!
Hopefully we will have WWW.CONSTANTINESURF.COM back up and flying soon (I should have some separate, exciting news on that soon as well!) but in the meantime I'll try and get the surf check out on social media and seaweed and everywhere else. Just look for constantinesurf and you should find something somewhere!
