Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
at 7.55 a.m.:
Dog walkers, surf checkers, early morning sea swimmers and the odd morning stroller are enjoying a milder but damper morning down in the bay on this eve of Christmas Eve.
And there’s a bit of a wave to ride too beneath that blanket cloud of mizzle and very wet drizzle with a couple to three feet of bouncing, hesitant and lumpy waves shuffling beachweards.
The weather is forecast to brighten and the swell is predicted to build in size through the day but the wind is likely to freshen from the south west making for choppier conditions.
Harlyn should get good though!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The breeze is offshore at Harlyn this morning, the grey sky weighing down on the foot or two of occasional smooth waves that are drifting through the high tide lineup.
The swell should pick up through the day, although the tide will be pulling back against that for a while and the wind is likely to settle into a steady sou’ westerly blow.
So we should be seeing something bigger, brighter and better by this afternoon.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:02 (1.9m) High Tide: 19:56 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Christmas Eve 2021
Southerly winds are going to be blowing a thick, rolling swell our way on this mild but dampish Christmas Eve.
Harlyn will be the place to surf today, always a great social spot to be at Christmas anyway but with the added bonus of possibly really good surf too!
Surf Conditions for Christmas!
We might just be enjoying some exceptional surf through this Christmas period with Santa pushing a whole lot of surf our way and providing a few offshore breezes for some of the time too!
So Christmas Eve could just offer a few surprises with an expected solid six foot plus swell to be rolling our way and the breeze switching offshore, south easterly, through the afternoon.
Harlyn will be the more popular choice with the wind being offshore there all day.
Christmas Morning could well be quite magical with an expected four to six feet of solid swell meeting a steady south easterly breeze blowing offshore. Throw in a little blue sky and sunshine and we’ll all be thanking Santa this year!
The swell is likely to ease off only slowly through Boxing Day and into the start of Christmas Week, the breeze staying light and offshore throughout the extra Bank Holiday days.
Yep, it’s all looking good for a fabulous surfy Christmas!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have yourself the merriest of Merry Christmases, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
