At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
Another wet ‘n breezy morning is only grudgingly giving way to a slightly brighter and milder winter’s morning, that veil of dampness slowly, slowly clearing.
Three or four feet of lazy, grey surf is washing into the bays on the dropping tide, the westerly wind stirring and slopping it all.
It’s not great but there are waves if you’re keen enough and it should get bigger.
The store is open 10 till 5 Friday through Monday!!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Harlyn is all dark and mysterious this morning, swathes of downpours sweeping across the sand to merge sea, sky and rain into one grey blur.
The waves are cleaner than expected though with a foot or two of fairly smooth little snappers crashing onto the hardened sand of almost low tide.
It should get bigger with the tide and the sky should brighten a little at least, so we might be having some fun in a moment.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:20 (1.9m) High Tide: 14:17 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 12th December 2020
North westerly winds are going to blow out the fairly big but lumpy and mucky waves all day long today and at most of the beaches on this coast today. The other coast will be cleaner and ether should be enough swell to get around there too.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The wet and windy conditions of the last few days look set to continue well into the weekend, a brisk north westerly keeping things cold on Saturday but being replaced by an equally blustery but milder southerly blow on Saturday.
That Southerly will carry a lot of dampness with it too but that could be a small price to pay for some clean and fun surf over at Harlyn throughout the day.
If you want some clean surf on Saturday though you will have to travel to the far coast. The waves should be big enough to swing onto the breaks down there and the wind should be offshore at most of the better spots too.
So, a weekend for the hardy keen amongst us, it’s going to be a long way removed from the superficial surfing image sold to the media masses but should be no worse for that.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
