Constantine (0*):  4 to 5 feet

And another damp and breezy day is upon us but with a few bright bits scattered about an otherwise grey and unexciting sky.
The wind has eased, a bit. But it is still blowing freshly enough to junk out the three to four to probably five feet when you’re out there of junked out and not very inspirational surf.
No, there’s not much to interest a surfer around here this morning, except for the prettiness of a vivid rainbow illuminating the headland (and I was too slow getting the camera out!).
The wind has switched this morning though, just a little, now blowing in from the west nor’ west, still onshore but maybe promising better for later, although not necessarily here. No, it’s pretty junk here today!

With Christmas hovering just a week away, here’s a gentle reminder that the shop will be open through the weekend and up until Christmas Eve lunchtime. So if you have any of those last minute things you need or if you have finally decided to buy your loved one a brand new Merrick board, or an Xcel winter wetsuit then drop in on us!
And we are going to do a couple of Flash Sales too but I’m not sure what to put in them yet! So keep your eyes on our social media stuff (@constantinesurf) and you could just bag yourself a pre-christmas bargaaaiiinn!

Harlyn (0*):  2 to 3 feet

No the wind has slid a little more westerly from the northerly that it has been but it’s still wild and onshore here again!
A couple of feet or so of mixed up and wishy washy stuff is lumping around the beach but it’s not looking that great really.
It is probably going to be tomorrow by the time the wind has sorted itself enough to be clean over here but it might just be worth a little look back this afternoon.
It should be brighter at least!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  10:10  (1.7m)        High Tide:  16:02  (6.9m)

Surf Forecast for Sunday 21st December 2014

The big thing about today is that the wind should have slipped to the south west, offering Harlyn Bay the chance to shine.
We should be enjoying a couple to hopefully, at least occasionally, three feet of okay surf with fresh but more direct offshore winds.
It could just end up being a bit better than okay.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

The wind is going to dominate our surf conditions right into the weekend.
Strong onshore winds look like they are going to trash any chance of a clean wave almost everywhere on this coast making that hike south our favourite bet. There is going to be plenty of surf, it’s just going to be wild and chaotic, onshore junk at most places along this coast.
And that’s likely to be the way of it all the way through till Sunday. Hopefully on Sunday the wind will have twitched back to the south west, allowing Harlyn to shine in all its glory.
But in the meantime, it looks like a meander south to find any chance of some clean surf conditions.
Hmm, isn’t it Christmas Party time?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
