At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 5 feet
Well, I think that I might have just timed it right for once!
That super bright full moon is shining silver over a blustery and bumpy but building swell as it pushes its way into the bay this morning.
Four feet or so of warped and ledgy waves are stacking onto the dropping tide sandbars, all a little funky looking in the early morning fug of a breezy moonlit dawn.
But it feels like it could just be bit of a special one today!
The breeze is gusting offshore, still a little sideshore on some of those gusts but it is already gradually twitching more to off.
Give it a couple off hours and we could be seeing some pumping five star action with a building swell being cleansed and manicured by a steady and direct south, south easterly, offshore.
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet.
A couple to three feet of hesitant swell is creeping into the bay this morning. The dropping tide seems to be warping those waves and holding them back.
It is a big tide and it’s falling out quickly and that is having its effect on the swells.
But it is still clean and the set waves are fun looking.
This afternoon’s incoming tide should show some great surf here, smaller than the main breaks obviously but offering an alternative.
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Friday 16th December 2016
Welcome to Big Friday!
It should be big today, really big!
We can expect six to eight feet of majestic, rolling swells to sweep along our coast all day long, those big and booming waves peaking into our bays and spinning along our reefs.
With a super big wave-period and a long, long fetch, those immaculately big waves should be power filled too!
Take it easy out there though, with those forecast light breezes, it could all look a bit softer, easier and kinder than it might end up being!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It is all looking very good indeed for an action packed weekend of screaming surf and gentle weather as high pressure snuggles comfortably over us, that writhing and screaming low pressure angrily pacing the north atlantic, all the while spinning waves all that way down to curl across our shores.
Big Friday’s epicness is likely to quickly dissipate, leaving a more rippable and less intense four to five foot swell, slowly easing down to three to four feet by Sunday.
The breezes are set light and offshore for the entire weekend while that bright, sharp winter sunshine should cheer us all weekend long!
Christmas is coming early for a few as the schools shut down and the bars and restaurants fire up!
The shop is open all weekend and we have loads of great last-minute present offers, so why not drop in on us!
Have a fabulous weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
