At 8.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 feet
A calm but overcast morning is revealing a much smaller swell this morning but that easy breeze is still offshore, a straight easterly brushing head on with the one to two feet of curling surf.
If you have longboard or shorter glider then you are in for some fun but the big wave dudes are going to have time to rest!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
A foot of lazy but surprisingly tempting little surf is spinning off from the Rock this morning, those long peeling right-handers calling out for a longboard to slide across them.
I’m guessing that those fun looking little gliders will be gone soon enough as the tide slides on in and the breaks on the other side of the headland are cleaner and more fun anyway. But there are some fun looking little peelers when I wasn’t expecting anything here this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:27 (1.9m) High Tide: 09:55 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 9th January 2018
South easterly going southerly winds are likely to be blowing our way today bringing (relatively) warmer air our way, still blowing offshore through the morning as a new swell starts to gallop our way.
There is a slim chance that conditions could just be perfect first thing as the swell starts to quickly show itself while the breeze is just meeting it at the right stage of tide.
But it won’t be long before it gets a bit big for itself while the ind slides relentlessly more onshore.
But if you do catch it right, it could just be as good as it gets – if only for a moment!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Make the most of those calmer and more settled, brighter conditions at the start of the week, there’s another low pressure system out there in the process of dropping its isobars ready to pounce!
The small but beautifully shaped surf of Monday should gradually increase in size through Tuesday, the wind continuing offshore until late on Tuesday afternoon.
The weather will deteriorate again as we go through Tuesday, the swell increasing in size all the time.
Big swells are going to be battering their way into the bays through Wednesday, the wind maybe calming and switching offshore through the morning, offering some classic big surf conditions at our favourite breaks – if we’re only a little lucky!
Those winds are going to revert back to north westerly at least for a while as we go into the back half of the week but they might just stay quite calm during daylight hours, offering at least the chance of some big and testing surf!
So, all in all it’s looking like a week full of potentially great surf if only for a few hours at a time! With a little research and maybe more travelling than you would prefer, we should all be able to get some great sessions in!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
