Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
The wind is blasting rain, hail and cold, cold air across the barren beach this morning, the murk and dank darkness of yet another winter storm evaporating any hope of surfing here today.
The waves are going to get big today though, real big!
So, that’s the Surf Report done for the Christmas break but it will be back in just a few short days.
We will be closing the store early on Christmas Eve and will re-open for a couple of hours on Boxing Day if the weather plays its part, back to full time on the 27th.
In the meantime have yourselves a Very Merry and Surfy little Christmas and a big and barrelling New Year!!
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 5 feet
Heavy rain squalls are tearing across the bay at Harlyn this morning, the squeal of the wind drowning the crash and roar of wind battered surf. Three to four to five feet of wind pushed and torn surf is washing onto the sand, a dark and uninviting mix of slop and froth stirred and swirled by that strong westerly gail.
The South Coast could be fun though?
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 08:08 (2.0m) High Tide: 14:05 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 23rd December 2019
Huge waves and blustering winds are going to be battering the coast again today, a strong westerly wind blowing big, dark lumps of waves our way.
If you can find one of those tucked away little breaks that are scattered along this rugged little coastline then you could just luck into some decent and chunky surf. But it is going to take some finding!
Surf Conditions for Christmas Week
The wind is going to continue to blast through for the start of the week but if you have been good little boys and girls then you might just wake to a Christmas Day surprise of pumping and possibly clean waves!
Before that though more onshore gales will be driving this big and out of control swells onto our coastline, Harlyn having the chance of offering some big and meaty barrels for the brave on Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. But howling onshore north westerlies will have returned by Christmas Eve afternoon.
If you’re keen it might be worth a check on Christmas morning, a little kink in the isobars could just produce a wind shift and sudden calming. South easterly breezes could just shape those still big storm swells into something quite special. But that is definitely no more than a maybe at this stage!
And then the onshore return, south westerly through Boxing Day morning, going north westerly in the afternoon before repeating the cycle was the swell dissipates through the end of the week.
The weekend is starting to look a little better but that is getting ahead of ourselves just a little too much!
Have the best of Christmases, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
