At 8.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The coast is snuggled under a sky of grey on another still and calm, peaceful morning as a very pretty couple of feet of glassy surf tumbles ashore.
The bay is silent except for the odd screech of seabirds and the occasional woosh and shoosh of those peeling waves.
A day for longboard gliding maybe?
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
There’s very little surf at Harlyn this morning, well, it’s pretty much flat really.
The odd one foot ripple is bumping onto the sand making you look maybe, but it’s the other side for surf today. And it is really quite nice over there.
But apart from the lack of surf Harlyn is enjoying another calm and peaceful day, that cosy grey sky taking nothing away from its pleasantness.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:20 (1.7m) High Tide: 18:12 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 21st December 2021
These light offshores are set to continue to groom and fuss over the smaller surf again today, a foot or two of shimmering and peeling, longboardable little surf being probably the best that we can expect today.
It could be brighter though!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
High pressure continues to control our weather for another few days yet, only gradually giving way to that bullying low pressure system that is bouncing across the Atlantic.
And so we are looking ahead to a week of two halves as Christmas draws nearer, the gentle and calm conditions of this next day or two being reluctantly replaced by something windier, chillier and damper too.
And those small wave gliding days will also be replaced by something thicker and heavier and bigger too.
The two to three feet and glassy surf at the start of the week will gradually drop to a hopeful foot or two by midweek, that offshore breeze staying light and pleasant, prettily wave shaping those gliding swells as they smoothly roll onto our surf breaks.
The wind will strengthen through midweek before backing southerly then south westerly, gusting in some dampness just in time for Christmas!
So Harlyn looks like the surfing social centre locally this Christmas, where we can unwrap some very sizeable boomers all weekend long!
It looks like we will be enjoying six feet of offshore hollowed grinders on the menu at Harlyn Bay this Christmas!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great and very festive week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
