At 8.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet.
A canopy of silver grey is snuggling over us this morning, the air calm and still mild (for the time of year!), while the swells keep rolling in!
Three to four feet of bumpy but glassy waves are pushing into the bay, the tide dropping quite quickly and having more effect than the super light breeze. That breeze will strengthen through this afternoon but should still remain only very light.
And so it looks as though we are in for yet another fabulous day of surf this New Year’s Eve and, if we’re only a little lucky, some brightening weather as well!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet.
A foot or two of quite lazy little surf is washing in here this morning, the wave walls are all smooth and clean and glassy but it is quite small.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:55 (1.4m) High Tide: 18:46 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for New Year’s Day 2017
It looks like we could be in for a chilly start to the this new year!
A brisk and strengthening north nor’ easterly will be blowing cold air across and into the bays, as the swell drops quite quickly.
We should see a couple of feet or so at places that are protected from the wind, or those nooks and crannies where it is offshore.
Yep we should be able to find somewhere to get in and have some fun, if only to wash away the excesses of the New Year’s Eve shenanigans!
Surf Conditions for the New Year’s Weekend
The winds look set to change direction for this New Year’s Weekend, blowing in from the south west only very lightly through Saturday, backing north easterly through Sunday, then north easterly again through Monday.
And there should be plenty of swells rolling through the entire weekend too!
So for Saturday, Harlyn is looking promising at only a couple of feet or so but with the wind offshore here and so making for some hollow ones, while Constantine should be offering some bigger but bumpier and lumpier surf to play in.
By Sunday it looks like the wind will be onshore (and chilly too!) everywhere on this coast but only light. So we’ll have the choice between bigger and bumpy waves at the main surf breaks or smaller but still bumpy waves at the more sheltered spots to celebrate the start of 2017.
And then the first week of the year should start out with small but clean, offshore conditions, a hard blowing north easterly wind maybe blowing too hard through Monday but easing off as we go into midweek.
Have a great New Year’s Weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
