Well, the wind has eased but only a little, so it is still blustery out there and it has slipped to the north west, a much colder direction!
There’s only a couple of days until the shortest day and it’s noticeable with daylight struggling to show itself.
The surf?
Nah, there’s a rag tag of mixed up and sloppy, choppy kind of stuff being buffeted by the wind, a bouncy and unpredictable bunch of waves just sloshing around the bay. It’s not even that big.
Nope, our only chance of enjoying some properly shaped surf is by tripping on down to the far coast, if there’s enough swell to get around there that is!
Brrr, it has suddenly become chillier this morning!

With Christmas hovering just a week away, here’s a gentle reminder that the shop will be open through the weekend and up until Christmas Eve lunchtime. So if you have any of those last minute things you need or if you have finally decided to buy your loved one a brand new Merrick board, or an Xcel winter wetsuit then drop in on us!
And we are going to do a couple of Flash Sales too but I’m not sure what to put in them yet! So keep your eyes on our social media stuff (@constantinesurf) and you could just bag yourself a pre-christmas bargaaaiiinn!

Harlyn (0*):  2 to 3 feet

No, it’s a mess of mixed up junk surf around here too but only small as well.
There’s two to maybe just about three feet of wind-driven and choppy surf slumping onto the sand, the wind pushing those weak looking waves onto each other.
It’s really not that good here today.
So, time to head across to check the other coast?

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  09:22  (2.0m)          High Tide:  15:14  (6.6m)

Surf Forecast for Saturday 20th December 2014

More of the same is on the cards for today, a brisk north westerly wind chilling the otherwise bright and cheery air, while running any chance of some cleaner shaped surf.  The north westerly wind is going to ruin the surf at all of our surf breaks locally leaving the best option to be the far coast – if it’s big enough!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

The wind is going to dominate our surf conditions right into the weekend.
Strong onshore winds look like they are going to trash any chance of a clean wave almost everywhere on this coast making that hike south our favourite bet. There is going to be plenty of surf, it’s just going to be wild and chaotic, onshore junk at most places along this coast.
And that’s likely to be the way of it all the way through till Sunday. Hopefully on Sunday the wind will have twitched back to the south west, allowing Harlyn to shine in all its glory.
But in the meantime, it looks like a meander south to find any chance of some clean surf conditions.
Hmm, isn’t it Christmas Party time?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
