At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is whistling into the bays on this bleak and miserable, wet Thursday morning.
Mist and mizzle and fog and drizzle are all mixing in with that cold wind from the north, the three to four feet of grey and mixed up, wind-beaten surf trying to find its way onto our surfbreaks but not.
It’s a wee bit grim out there this morning!
The store is open 10 till 5 Friday through Monday!!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 2 feet
Harlyn is trying its best to shake off this dull and damp morning, that cold north westerly wind howling cold into the rain sodden bay but not managing to move any part of the massive grey, leaden sky.
It is cold and it is windy and it is wet, and dull too but it still somehow manages to be a nice place to be.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:54 (1.9m) High Tide: 13:13 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 11th December 2020
Westerly winds are going to be bouncing a lumpy swell into the bays all day long today, an otherwise half decent four to five foot swell being beaten and mixed by that blustering blow.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The wet and windy conditions of the last few days look set to continue well into the weekend, a brisk north westerly keeping things cold on Saturday but being replaced by an equally blustery but milder southerly blow on Saturday.
That Southerly will carry a lot of dampness with it too but that could be a small price to pay for some clean and fun surf over at Harlyn throughout the day.
If you want some clean surf on Saturday though you will have to travel to the far coast. The waves should be big enough to swing onto the breaks down there and the wind should be offshore at most of the better spots too.
So, a weekend for the hardy keen amongst us, it’s going to be a long way removed from the superficial surfing image sold to the media masses but should be no worse for that.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
