At 8.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 10 t0 15 feet
The wind continues to blast through the bay this morning, those furious gusts flinging waves and sand and foam and froth onto the beaches and dunes.
It’s a stormy one alright but those rain squalls are sauntering away to drench the moors and eastern countryside, leaving us to our wind but drynesss.
And so the surf is exciting and huge and explosive but you wouldn’t want to choose to involve yourself with it too intimately, not today!
And with all these storms raging onto our coastline one after the other, I’ve decided to slip away for a few days in search of some cleaner and brighter, less chaotic surf, so no surfcheck for a week or so!
But it’s looking like more of the same with powering mainly onshore winds being forecast for the foreseeable!
Adios amigos and see you in a week or two!
Harlyn (2*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind is blasting in from the North West, cold and fierce but also destroying any chance of decent surf at Harlyn too.
Cheyne’s left is big enough but even that is bumpy and lumpy and choppy too, maybe worth a session if you’re stuck here but maybe not.
No, it’s a south coast day today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:47 (1.4m) High Tide: 18:39 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 10th December 2018
Calmer but still fresh westerly winds are going to be blowing a smaller but still windburn and trashy swell our way today.
The best that we can hope for is maybe three to four feet of bumpy and lumpy, okay Harlyn on the afternoon tide.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
These crushing winds should ease as this week rushes our way, the wind starting out from the west, only gradually sliding more southerly as we go towards midweek.
Although it will be a much calmer start to the week, those onshores are still going to be fresh enough to junk out the surf at all of our main breaks, keeping us at our sheltered spots.
So Harlyn is likely to continue to be the surf destination of choice locally this week, the wind lightening along with the swell easing and becoming cleaner as we go towards midweek.
Tuesday could be fun at Harlyn with a decent three feet of offshore hollowed boomers to look forward to, growing a little as the wind calms even more through Wednesday. The wind might just slip to the south east through Wednesday evening too but whether that will happen before dark, well we’ll have to wait and see.
If it does though there could just be some epic conditions if you know where to go!
And then the north westerlies will return pushing another big lump of swell ahead of them well into the end of the week and the weekend.
And that is what has made me reach for my passport, check the web and hop out of here for a quick break somewhere a little warmer with some cleaner waves!
So no surfcheck until the week after next I’m afraid, although it is looking windy and wavy all the way through!
Adios and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
