Another wet ’n windy, chillier morning is trying to brighten but big black clouds are dragging heavy, heavy showers along which are pounding an already sodden earth.
The wind is beating in from the north west, blowing cold wind down the coast, wrecking any chance of clean surf at any surf breaks along this coast. There’s four or five feet of chopped out, grey and messy waves washing around in the bays but with no focus or direction to them.
The south coast is our best bet for some worthwhile surf today!

Harlyn (1*):  2 to 3 feet.

There’s three feet or so of windswept and grey, uninviting surf chugging onto the sand this morning, all lazy and broody and breaking haphazardly.
No, the surf here is nowhere near great today, that onshore wind wrecking any hopes for something worthwhile to ride. And I (sometimes) quiet enjoy Harlyn in an onshore, it can gives those waves more of a boost on those sections. But not today.
The south coast is beckoning!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 12th January 2016

More onshore north westerlies are going to keep the temperatures down while wrecking any chance of clean surf on this north coast.
A four foot swell being messed up by cold, winter winds is not that appealing in mid January!
But the south coast will have some spots lighting up again today!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

This week is likely to start off with some strong blowing north westerly winds, making a mess of the surf everywhere on this coast while dropping the air temperature at the same time.
Big swells are likely to roll our way through Monday and into Tuesday, that wind making a wild mess of those choppy and bouncing waves and only backing to the south west for a short while during midweek.
So, a couple of days of south coast surf action are calling with smaller midweek, offshore Harlyn for a day or two before returning to the south coast as those north westerlies blow again.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
