At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 5 feet
It’s a murky and mizzly, damp and drizzly one this morning but it’s a mild and cosy one too, especially for a mid January morning.
Three to four to five feet of so-so swell is shuffling quietly ashore with a westerly breeze lightly pushing and shoving from behind making for a bay of mediocre surf at best.
Then again, there are waves and they are very rideable too!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s quiet again at Harlyn this morning with a deceptive three feet or maybe four of undecided and bumpy surf rolling onto the sand.
The breeze is light but just a little too westerly to add any shape to those inconsistent swells as they hesitate their way in.
The rising tide should help to make conditions a little more appealing, especially on this damp clad, mizzle filled morning but then again the dropping tide should sharpen it all up, especially as the breeze eases offshore through this afternoon.
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 11th January 2022
Oh, it could get good today!
There’s a steady five or six foot swell rolling our way and the breeze is forecast to slip offshore from the north east.
So the sky should be bright and the surf should be rolling but it’s going to feel cold too!
But it is January.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
High pressure is casually sliding our way, easing itself over the country as the week goes on making for calm and settled conditions and providing light, offshore breezes as well as the potential for clear blue skies.
And with that deep low pressure system having stirred the Atlantic for the last several days, we can expect plenty of surf to roll our way throughout the week.
So although the week starts out muffled by mizzle and with a lazy westerly breeze slopping the head high and bigger swells, the breeze will soon ease offshore, the skies should clear and the swells smooth out.
Tuesday is promising classic conditions with a. Decent four to six foot swell anticipated, to be groomed by a light north easterly breeze.
Midweek is promising head high swells and the lightest of easterly breezes blowing offshore to hollow and shape those clear, clean winter swells.
And these conditions should be set to roll all the way through the week and into the weekend.
So, stay safe, stay happy, dry your wintersuit, grab your booties, wax up a bigger board and have yourself a very surfy week!
