At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
Another wet ‘n windy one is not enthusing the voter within this morning, a blanket of greyness and mizzle cloaking a mixed up sea of windblown surf.
It’s not a place to hang around today, unless you’re layered in waterproof nylon that is.
At the moment the wind is from the south west and the swell is big enough, so let’s have a gander over at Harlyn:
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 5 feet
The wind is straight offshore at Harlyn this morning, hollowing out the thick and strong looking waves as they heave themselves onto the almost dry sand of a dropping tide.
The set waves are a whole lot bigger than the inbetweenies, five feet and bigger when they wash in every twenty minutes or more. But those other ones are hollow and fast breaking too (some might say ‘closing-out’ but hey, get a faster board and get to your feet quicker!).
If you’re keen on grabbing a few screaming barrels though you might want to get a wriggle on, that wind is going to go onshore (north westerly) by lunchtime!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:38 (1.4m) High Tide: 17:28 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 13th December 2019
Huge swells and howling onshore winds (from the north west – brrrr!) aren’t going to be that attractive, especially in the downpours of another wet ‘n windy December day.
The other coast should be rocking though (again!)!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Fed up with these ongoing wet ‘n windy conditions?
Well you’d better get over that one, it looks like we are in for a long spell of howling onshore winds and huge storm surf.
The swell is likely to build through Friday with massive surf expected to pound this coast all the way through the weekend unfortunately coinciding with howling and mostly onshore storm force winds.
Saying that, Saturday afternoon might just allow Harlyn to clean up with a little kink in the wind direction making for offshore conditions there just for an hour or two.
Those south westerlies could continue into Sunday if we’re lucky, allowing the huge surf there to be cleaner and hollower, still closing out massively but that just adds to the excitement doesn’t it?
Again Harlyn is our best chance for surf as those big swells bowl their way into the new week.
Big and stormy surf it is then, possibly all the way through until the holidays!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
