Surf Report for Monday 22nd December 2014

Constantine (0*):  4 to 5 feet

at 8.15a.m.


Another blowy, grey and threatening morning is upon us, a biting west sou’ wester of a wind snarling at the five or so feet of broken up surf.
There are fragments of blue in the sky, just enough to make you realise that it’s probably not going to happen, those rain squalls visible out in the atlantic are more likely to control today.
So a blustery, and wild morning with no sign of any letup any time soon!
Let’s have a look at Harlyn, it should be the right conditions….

With Christmas hovering only a couple of days away now, here’s a gentle reminder that the shop will be open 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! We’re open 10 till 4!

Harlyn (3*):  3 feet


Ah, yes, good old Harlyn, our sanctuary on a windy Christmas week morning!
there’s a half decent three feet or so of steep waves ready to snap ashore at an already low state of tide, even though it is only a couple of hours off high. But those tides have opened out so there’s a good seven and a half metre tidal movement at the moment.
Anyway, it all means that the size should increase through this afternoon as the tide returns. We should be enjoying some solid little tubular ones soon enough!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  11:43  (1.1m)            High Tide:  17:34  (7.4m)


Surf Forecast for Tuesday 23rd December 2014

And it looks like a little bit of repetition today, with a hard blowing west sou’ westerly gusting in and that still mixed up six foot or so swell swirling around.
And so it’s going to be another Harlyn day, three feet and offshore, with some thick and heavy, barreling shutdown ones just to add some Christmas spice to it all!


Surf Conditions for the Start of theWeek

South westerly going westerly winds are going to dominate the start of this Christmas week with a strong blow through to shake the Christmas decorations and junk the surf at all of the main surf breaks locally.
It’s looking like a typical Harlyn week ahead of us, starting out quite big too!
Four to five feet plus of thick and grey surf is likely to be standing tall at Harlyn as the tides stretch themselves out towards springs as we go along.
There are going to be some big and bowling waves coming through for the start of the week,five foot plus for Monday getting bigger on Tuesday. That wind though looks like it will annoyingly slip further around to the north as Christmas arrives.
But then that is always an excuse for a trip down south! It should be as pretty as a picture down ether, all the way through Christmas.
Have a fantastic Christmas, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
