Constantine (3*): 3 feet
at 8.45 a.m.
A bit of a sullen looking day is upon us but it’s calm and mild for early January, the wind light and from the south.
The surf is a good three feet, the wind not quite offshore here and so there’s those little ripples going up the wave faces.
It is going to be one of those days when there will be better conditions elsewhere but it could also be way better than it looks when you’re actually in there too!
This grey cloud covering should thin out eventually too.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
The surf is sharp and smart but really small around here this morning, a foot or maybe two of smart looking little waves snapping ashore. That is at almost half tide on the drop, so it might increase just a little on this afternoon’s tide.
There should be a little wave to ride this afternoon but the other side will be the better option today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:52 (1.4m) High Tide: 17:43 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 6th January 2015
A brighter day should be waiting for us, with the start of a new swell, the wind light but shifting to the north west through the morning.
There is likely to be a four to five foot swell building through the day, the wave-period opening out as the swell builds too.
So that wind is going to be onshore but is being forecast to drop away to almost nothing through the afternoon.
The afternoon could just be pretty excellent on the incoming tide, a big and booming, looping swell to ride if you can find just the right place!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As seemingly everyone slips back to work, school, college or surf travels, this week at home is likely to be offering up a mixed bag of surf conditions.
There should be plenty of waves around, getting big as we slide into into midweek, probably in the six to eight feet swell range but with varied winds to affect it all too.
Starting out as a direct southerly through Monday that wind is likely to alternate between north westerly and south westerly day to day, making for choppy and sloppy conditions everywhere for Tuesday, offshore at Harlyn for Wednesday and so on.
It is looking like a good week to alternate trips to the south coast with crunchy days at Harlyn or similar!
The weather is going to be mixed up as well with plenty of everything, a little sunshine appearing between some inevitable squally showers and more unseasonably mild temperatures.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
