At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
A grey and wet, wintery morning is revealing more mountainous but windswept seas as stinging nor’ westerly winds howl across the bays.
And, of course, it’s cold, really cold.
If you want to measure the surf it’s in that six or eight foot size range, probably bigger but it doesn’t matter, I can’t see anyone leaping in there for fun, not today anyway.
Harlyn (0*): 4 to 6 feet
A cold, cold nor’ wester is rattling the containers at Harlyn this morning as it blasts into the bay and flings four or maybe six feet of broken swell across the hardened sand.
It’s a cold, wet and harsh place to linger this morning, best left to those hardy dogwalkers, hi-viz snuggled builders and crouching coastalwalkers.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:02 (2.4m) High Tide: 14:01 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 19th January 2023
The wind is forecast to calm today and it might even ease its way to a more easterly drift, allowing those still solid swells to unfold themselves quite prettily.
We could even be enjoying some winter sunshine today as we glide across those four foot waves too!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
A mixed up week is waiting to excite and frustrate and reward us all this week with howling onshore and cold winds being broken up by periods of sun brightened cold, calm and offshore smooth surf conditions.
The cold north westerly blow at the start of the week is likely to ease more easterly as we go into Tuesday, offering offshore winds to smooth those still lumpy swells as they march our way.
Tuesday is promising great surf conditions all long the coast – six feet and offshore at all of our preferred breaks.
But that onshore north westerly will be blowing hard again by midweek, trashing the surf all along this coast while keeping temperatures down to uncomfortable levels.
It’s likely to be Friday before the wind eases, allowing more gentle breezes to drift offshore through the afternoon to sooth a fun three feet of cold, cold swell.
So you’re going to have to be on it to get the most out of this week’s surf but with a little travelling about and lots of watching and waiting, we should enjoy some epic conditions here and there!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
