Strong Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 7.45 a.m. on Saturday 15th February 2014:
That was a big one last night, a roof rattler if there ever was one!
And it is still blowing through this morning, that storm force wind gradually easing to a gale, those heavy duty rain squalls becoming more intermittent, the surf though still crazily crashing along the coast.
The wind has slipped to a west south westerly direction, still blasting in but already having lost some of its violence while the sky is gradually widening and brightening. It's a slow process but it does seem to be improving!
Meanwhile the surf is still dramatic. Not as huge as we have seen it recently but still big, still making the Quies disappear regularly, still bowling onto the sand.
You don't want to go too near it, not yet, probably not for a while. It looks less threatening than it has recently but don't be too deceived it is still thick and heavy and out of control. We're going to have to seek some real shelter to be in with a chance of a decent surf. But one advantage of these big swells is that those waves will manage to sprawl into all those tucked away and sheltered spots. There will be waves to surf somewhere and they'll be good. Let's have a little look at Harlyn first though.
