At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 6 to 8 feet
A brighter, lighter, gentler day is cheering us this morning!
As Christmas swoops steadily towards us, the wind continues to blow steadily from the south west, not the screeching howl of the last how long but still strong enough to test your syrup and fig.
So the surf is completely blown out here again, a mixed up mess of churning madness galloping up the beach in a wet and turquoise kind of way.
Let’s have a look over at Harlyn, it should be good there!
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 5 feet.
It’s bigger than it has been, three to four to five feet of offshore folded, watery caverns are shuffling across the beach a couple of hours or so off low tide.
There are some gnarly ones grinding in, some board snapping set waves shifting unpredictably, putting in a sidewards swerve worthy of Merve just as they’re pitching.
It’s going to be good (for Harlyn!) and there should be barrels galore and air opportunities aplenty for the more agile!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:44 (1.5m) High Tide: 15:37 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Christmas Eve 2015
And a stormy one it’s going to be too!
Big, big waves should be lashing through, propelled by west sou’ westerly gales and accompanied by torrential downpours!
It’s Harlyn or not in again today but even there is going to be a little testing maybe!
So take it easy today champs, we don’t want the Christmas cheer to carry you away! On the other hand, there should be some big and beastly surf around to be ridden if you’re into it!
Good luck to those big wave warriors over in Portugal waiting for Nazare to shake itself into some huge wave action – it could be gnarly there today!
Surf Conditions for Christmas
As Christmas looms our way the weather and surf patterns are refusing to change their approach.
Those keen south westerly winds continue to blow that mild, damp air our way, pushing and shoving those atlantic waves into our bays and onto our beaches.
The surf is likely to stay in the ‘big’ range all week, getting really big through midweek, probably peaking again on Wednesday when even Harlyn will have some size to it.
And Harlyn is going to be the main option all week this week again, generally being in the three to four feet size range getting up to twice that during midweek.
Christmas is coming!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
