At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
A light westerly breeze is guiding more chilly and rain sodden air into the bay this morning, a threatening black backdrop of murk and more dampness lurking over the five or six feet of lumpy, bumpy swell.
It’s not exactly pleasant out there today but it’s not as wet or stormy as it has been (and even I can see that that is scraping the fast emptying barrel of optimism!).
Harlyn could be a little more attractive………
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 4 feet
Ah, the breeze is still a little too westerly to allow Harlyn to be as good as it might be later.
Right now three feet or so of thick and soupy swell is lumping itself onto the sand as the tide heaves itself up the beach. But the wind is forecast to back more to the south quite soon and that should shape it all up quite dramatically. Especially as the swell pulses through soon enough.
I’m guessing that the surf here will just get bigger and better as the day rolls on!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:28 (2.1m) High Tide: 11:46 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 21st December 2019
Fresh south westerly winds are going to be pushing an already big and solid swell our way all day long again today, allowing Harlyn to blossom and grow in the rain and wind.
It could get big out there again today, so take it easy if you’re keen enough to duck the Christmas shopping in favour of some mighty thrashings!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another damp and windy, wintery weekend is waiting for us this weekend with lots more big swells rolling our way being herded into the bays by blustery and gusting south going south westerly winds.
We just might see an offshore kink to that wind through Saturday morning allowing the big surf that is due to be rolling onto our favourite surf breaks to fire! If that does happen then we could be enjoying some real big barrels and lots of peeling peaks, if you’re prepared to go looking!
The wind will probably ease more to the west again as the weekend glides by making even Harlyn a bit of a challenge with sloppier conditions by late Sunday morning.
But overall, we should see some exciting conditions filled with plenty of surf, sometimes friendly winds and mixed up and changeable weather.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
