At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 5 feet.
A chilly but beautiful morning is spreading down the coastline this morning, the breeze gently whispering offshore under a clear blue winter’s sky.
And the surf is still pumping!
Four to five feet of thick and lumpy peaks are spreading across the sandbars as the tide rises too high too quickly making for bumpier and lumpier conditions than we would choose but that will improve as the tide eventually pulls out, making for some shallower and steeper little wedges here and there.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet.
A couple to three feet of very casual looking surf is drifting through the early morning marine layer of an atmospheric Harlyn Bay in the winter sunshine.
The tide is a little too high and getting higher but give it a couple of hours and there should be some sharp and crisp shoulder high little walls to cruise along in the sunshine.
Bak sure you have your neoprene on though, it is feeling a bit nippy out there this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:45 (1.4m) High Tide: 08:13 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 19th December 2016
A rock steady swell is continuing to pulse our way all day long, gradually strengthening and building as the day rolls on.
The wind should be an offshore breeze for most of the day, strengthening and veering more northerly through mid afternoon.
It should be pumping again!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We should have one or two of these beautifully settled and surf drenched conditions left before it’s all change!
And the approach of that storm generating low pressure system is what has been producing all this lovely surf that we have been enjoying through the weekend.
So Monday should see some more four foot surf building as the day goes on and getting into the ‘big’ range by evening. The light breeze gently blowing offshore through the morning, backing more to the north through early afternoon as those bigger and lumpier swells pour through.
Big but still clean and mainly offshore shaped surf should be pounding our way through Tuesday, throwing six to eight feet of gnarly waves our way, the wind again slipping more side to onshore through the afternoon.
That wind will settle into a more characteristic south westerly blow for Wednesday as that deep low pressure system cruises our way.
So it will be ‘Hello Harlyn!” for the rest of the week with big and lumpy, windblown swells being thrown at us, probably getting real big and thick and heavy for Christmas!!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
