At 8.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 5 to 6 feet.
A brighter, lighter and all around much calmer, more pleasant day is upon us than we have seen for some time!
There are still those marauding power showers meandering along the coastline and the wind is still blowing freshly but there are some wide open and big blue spaces in the sky.
But the surf is still junk, four to five to six feet of onshore blown and messy stuff churning up the beach, that south westerly wind just strong enough to make it all a mess.
So it looks as though Harlyn is going to be the place again!
If you are around this weekend it could be your last chance to enjoy our 20% OFF SALE!! Yes, we have 20% OFF EVERYTHING in the shop! So if you’re thinking of upgrading your wetsuit or need that replacement fin, or if you didn’t get that Merrick DFR in your Christmas stocking, then drop on by – you could just pick up a bargain!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet.
There’s a couple to three feet of glassy faced but snappy little close-outs slapping the sand this morning, the tide halfway out on the drop. Things should improve massively with this afternoon’s tide, we should lose that warpiness and it should all smooth out bit, although that won’t do anything for the close-out effect that Harlyn does so well!
But, we should be enjoying some decent and fun three foot surf all afternoon and we might just enjoy some pleasant and brighter weather too!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Saturday 9th January 2016
That steady, if a little wind-rushed five to six foot swell should continue to pulse along the coast quite nicely as the south westerly wind freshens up again. So in-between those heavy power showers we should be enjoying some fun three foot plus, offshore Harlyn surf.
I don’t think that there is any need to rush in early, the afternoon incoming tide is likely to show it all to its best.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
So far this new year does not seem to have registered much of a change with the wind gods and those hard blowing and sometimes stormy winds are looking set to continue to blow, although maybe not quite so hard or fast, throughout the weekend and probably longer.
This week started out with more typical Harlyn conditions, those big, thick and lumpy swells having a bit more of a bump to them caused by the west sou’ westerlies but the wind should be back to straight south westerly again on Friday and stay there all the way through the weekend.
Yep, we are likely to be seeing more strong onshores at our preferred surf breaks to end the week and take us into the weekend but with double digit wave heights, a double digit wave period and double digit wind speeds, Harlyn should find its winter epicness this weekend again!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
