At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
A blustery sou’ wester is blowing dampness in the air while churning the already thick and lumpy, decently sizeable surf on this grey and overcast morning.
Other spots might be firing all along the coast but that mess of mixed up four to six foot and building surf is as much as we can expect here today. It will build in size but that wind is going to continue to mess it all up.
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
Word seems to be out already that the surf is pumping at Harlyn this morning, the carpark first row is already filling up!
And three to four feet of offshore wind hollowed peaks are booming onto the sand, heaving and zipping their way to shore.
The wind is screeching offshore, the forecast is promising a building swell and so it’s all looking good for this afternoon’s tidal push!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:06 (1.1m) High Tide: 17:58 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 12th January 2020
That big, thick, winter swell is set to stay on while the wind continues to blow hard from the south west.
Another day of battling big and churning Harlyn barrels awaits!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A thumping ‘code black’ swell along with gusting south westerly winds point us toward Harlyn again for this weekend but even Harlyn might just be a little too much on these swells!
We can expect some big and hollow surf all day long at Harlyn through Saturday, the main surf breaks will be swamped by the size of those waves and by the gusting sou’ westerly blow. By Sunday that wind will be more westerly making even Harlyn a bumpy and lumpy affair, all the time the surf being in the ‘very big’ range.
Other coasts might be calling in these conditions, this coast is liable to be maxed out pretty much everywhere, except for those moist sheltered of spots.
And if you think that the surf is big this weekend then hang around till midweek, it’s going to get REALLY big then!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
