Medium Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 9.35 a.m. on Thursday 13th February 2014:
The wind is whooshing across the beach here this morning too, those bright moments lighting up the sea and almost making it attractive, the black clouds of more downpours quickly checking those thoughts.
The surf is okay though, smaller than you might expect after yesterday's eighty mile an hour gusts and last night's power swells. It's three to four feet looking, maybe a bit bigger when you're actually out there. And with this gusting westerly wind, it's hardly neat or tidy, more a growling and stuttering kind of surf. Those really big, left over swells whomping in every now and again just to keep us alert.
It's low tide in a couple of hours but that might not work very well. That combination of a smaller swell, a not very low tide (only one and a half metres) and a still strong westerly wind, won't do too much to improve the surf.
But give it a wee while and it could all improve.
As the tide rises there might just be some more shelter from the wind and a little more strength to the swell.
It could just be quite good!
