Surf Report for Saturday 1st December 2018

At 8.05 a.m:

Constantine (0*):  6 to 8 feet

Wild gusting wind is blowing murk and mizzle around the bay beneath a canopy of dullness this morning with wall to wall dampness clinging in the mildness.
And so of course the surf is a mess, six feet or thereabouts of mixed and chopped, messed up slop being blown ashore in the gloom.
As always, it’s still a fabulous place just to be but there’s no surf to ride. Not here, not today!

Harlyn (3*):  2 to 3 feet

The tide seems to be such a long way out at Harlyn on this grey and murky, lo-viz morning and yet low tide was a good couple of metres high (it can drop to zero metres but was showing 2.1 this morning).
Anyway, that mainly useless bit of information might just come in handy if you’re planning a trip to somewhere that is tide sensitive, which might be worth considering while the wind is gusting hard from the west south west and a six foot swell is pushing along out in the Atlantic.
So, that’s enough clues, if you can’t get it from that then you don’t deserve to go and you’ll have to settle for the couple of feet of wind battered but tall standing waves that are managing to swing into Harlyn.
It should be fun here today, two to three feet and occasionally just a bit bigger with a screaming side to offshore wind hollowing out the righthanders. And it should only improve through the day too (the surf – not necessarily the weather).

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  18:48  (2.1m)              High Tide:  12:01  (6.3m)

Surf Forecast for Sunday 2nd December 2018

We can expect more of the same again today!
Strong south westerly winds will be blowing hard, a degree or two more southerly today allowing Harlyn to shine a little more than Saturday.
Yep, we can expect another sand drenched and hollow Harlyn Sunday!

Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

A fairly typical winter’s Harlyn weekend is waiting for us this weekend, the wind calming to a steady blow, mainly from the south west, veering back and for between west south westerly, direct westerly (more Saturday afternoon) and back to straight south westerly for Sunday afternoon.
Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon should see the best of Harlyn with a still big enough swell running up the coast, more eight feet than six, strengthening and getting bigger again through Sunday, before getting really big as we launch into the first week of Advent.
With mid-teens air temperatures and plenty of dampness around, those blustery conditions are going to be flinging waves into all the nooks and crannies that this coast has hidden away, so with just a little local knowledge you should be able to find some great surf to play in!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!!
