At 8.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 8 to 10 feet
It’s a wild and woolly one out there this morning with a lively sou’ wester blustering into the bays, heaving big lumps of waves all over the place.
There’s probably eight to ten feet of out of control and windlashed storm surf bouncing around the bays but you wouldn’t choose to get too close to any of it, there’s a whole lot of water moving around out there.
It is mild though.
Harlyn (3*): 4 to 6 feet
Strong sou’ westerly winds are blistering offshore to hold up the four to six feet of dark but smooth folding waves as they dump heavily onto the hard sand of Harlyn this morning, the occasional peak wedging and spinning cleanly off the Rock.
It’s a small tide with a lunchtime high so the whole morning is set for plenty of action with a building swell, steady but stormy offshores and some cavernous cover ups to be had.
Take it easy if you’re out of practice though, those waves will be board snappingly heavy!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:36 (2.2m) High Tide: 12:56 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 30th December 2021
Those south westerly gales are set to continue to blast our way sending big and chunky, churning waves our way.
Harlyn is our local ‘go to’ spot in these conditions and it is going to be testing even here today but there should be some memorable screamers to enjoy if you’re up to it!
Surf Conditions for the New Year Holiday Weekend
These south westerly winds are going to mightily blow out the last week of this year and whistle us quickly and noisily right into 2022 this weekend.
Stormy conditions will see us through the entire end of the week and all the way through the holiday weekend, hopefully those winds managing to blow away any non-invited viral bugs that might have drifted down this way too!
But the surf is going to be out of control at our preferred surf spots locally with mountainous seas storming into the bays and re-sculpting the sands and headlands, scouring and sweeping and buffeting well into the start of the New Year.
And so Harlyn will play host to our surfing shenanigans this New Year with big and bowling, offshore wind hollowed crunchers slamming their way into the bay.
The tides are going to play their part in gauging the wave breaking intensity of your sessions here for the next week or so, those low tide barrels hungry to snap your favourite barrel riding board, the bigger but softer waves of high tide still prepared to throw a punch or two as well.
So, pack a little sip of bubbly for a friend and head for a fab New Year riding those crunching close-out barrels of Harlyn and remember that for every ten or so Harlyn close-outs there’s usually one or to screeching, peeling, hollow screamers reeling across the beach!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have yourself the happiest of Happy New Years, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
