At 8.30 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A steady westerly breeze is keeping temperatures mild again this morning, carrying a little dampness too but nothing that would keep you away.
The surf is a bit of a mess as a result though with three feet plus of mixed up and raggedy waves bouncing and jiggling to a tune of its own.
Benny Ben Bennett (@bbenbennett)is out destroying a few and looking like he’s enjoying an early morning solo session but he is probably getting the best of those HTC peaks and is also probably making them look better than they might be too.
It could just be big enough to get a few into Harlyn though………
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
A couple of feet of ruffled and lightly crumbled little waves are tipping into Harlyn this morning, that wind light but a little too westerly to allow it to be as clean as we would prefer but it is okay.
I’m guessing that we might see just a little more size at the peak of the tide and an increasing swell should also counteract the normal shrinkage in size that we usually get on the dropping tide here. So it should be fun all day long!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:00 (2.0m) High Tide: 10:24 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 30th December 2018
That same there to four foot swell should stay clean enough in the light onshores that e can expect today. We might again have a bit of a choice between bigger but sloppier Constantine versus smaller but cleaner Harlyn but the difference in size and shape is likely to be less than yesterday.
We should have some fun but it’s unlikely to be that great anywhere today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
South westerly winds are expected to blow through on Saturday making for sloppier conditions at those favourite surf breaks that have been breaking so prettily this week.
But that wind should push a little extra swell our way too, hopefully enough to just get some worthwhile surf all the way around and into Harlyn.
So Saturday looks like a fun day of two to three foot and offshore cleaned surf at Harlyn while Sunday settles back to more offshore breezes at our main surf breaks.
Light south easterly breezes are expected as high pressure regains control, allowing for brighter and clearer skies and clean, clean surf.
Yep, it’s looking good again for the whole of the week before deteriorating as we go into the weekend.
But that’s a long way off just yet, in the meantime we can expect some great surfing conditions to see us into the new year!
Have a very Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
