At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 10 to 15 feet
West nor’ westerly gales are continuing to batter our already punished little coastline this morning with large leaping waves being flung ashore all over the place while seabirds screech across the sky dodging those dark and heavy looking bundles of cloud.
It’s a lively one filled with noise and action and water and sand but not a day for surf riding – not along this coast anyway.
Harlyn (0*): 8 to 10 feet
Harlyn is being windblasted, sandblasted and waveblasted this morning, the deserted beach having its Winter wipedown courtesy of Storm Barra.
The waves are mountainous, the tide is huge and the wind is stinging.
It’s all very pleasant in a wintery stormy kind of way!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:33 (1.4m) High Tide: 20:29 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 9th December 2021
As Storm Barra fills in and gradually shuffles away, the wind will gradually ease although it is still going to be strong enough and onshore enough to trash the already rolling and choppy surf.
The wind might just ease more to the south west during the afternoon, at least giving Harlyn a chance to shine.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We can expect a whole lot of huge but out of control storm surf to continue to batter our already battered and bruised, rugged little stretch of coast all week long with gale force winds continuing to drive those monster waves onto our shores.
Hard blowing and cold north westerly winds are going to carry on blowing more arctic air down the coast, unleashing heavy and stinging downpours whenever they feel the mood.
The ocean is going carry on being a place to view only for the next few days, still best from a safe distance too. The waves will still be big enough to be merciless as they go about their business of scouring and reshaping the coastline.
The south coast is our only possibility for surf of any quality and there should be at least a few diamond days over there this week.
You’ll have to tune-in to more detailed ad more localised surf reports to get the best out that this week though or you could end up racking up the miles on fruitless surf seeking missions.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
