It’s yet another wet ’n windy one out there this morning, a mild but blustery, squally, grey kind of day. The sort of day better spent indoors, preferrably in good company with a steady supply of good food, fine drink and some merriment!
Or there’s always the Christmas shopping!?
Or you could go surfing.
But probably not here, not today.
The surf is growling through at six to eight feet, that wind screaming into the bay from the south west again, well, the south south west to be a bit more accurate. Either way, it’s still onshore, still howling, still messing up what could otherwise be a good and powerful swell.
Harlyn should be good though……

Harlyn (3*):  3 to 4 feet.

The wind is straight offshore here this morning, hollowing out the teasing three to four feet of bowling and quite graceful looking surf.
The tide is halfway in, the wind is set south sou’ westerly for the rest of the day, the swell is pushing hard, so it should be a good ‘un all day long!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 20th December 2015

These same conditions are likely to continue throughout today, those south sou’ westerly winds howling our way, driving an even bigger swell onto our shores.
It’s going to be big and booming offshore Harlyn again today then!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

That high flying jet stream continues to whoosh across the north atlantic dragging a whole bunch more low pressure systems in its wake as we rapidly close in on Christmas week.
Those tightly compacted isobars indicate more high winds, more south westerlies filled to the brim with (relatively) mild dampness, looking to continue to deposit a whole lot of wetness on top of us but bringing plenty of thick, winter swells our way too!
Harlyn is looking to be our surfbreak of choice for quite a little while to come with a whole series of low pressure systems ready to slingshot some mean and heavy winter swells our way.
The surf is likely to stay in the ‘big’ to ‘very big’ range well into the weekend and for quite a while to come after, making it a good time to maybe have a little search around the area for those even more sheltered, rare breaking, surf spots.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
