At 9.45 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 3 feet
Three feet plus of smooth and glasslike, still grey but peeling and hollow waves are grinding into the bay this morning!
The sky continues to be more grey than bright but the wind has calmed to a breeze and an offshore (easterly right now) breeze at that.
Yep, the surf is fun and inviting and hollow and peeling and the air is (relatively) mild!
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet.
A couple of feet of glassy little waves are sliding smoothly into Harlyn this morning, the odd one peeling and walling and looking like fun!
The other side is the pace to be really but there are some fun looking ones here if you want to avoid the paddle, or just want a cruise morning by yourself.
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Wednesday 18th January 2017
The breeze is forecast to continue to lightly blow offshore all day long, while the swells continue to roll our way, all even and smooth, with big gaps between those bigger sets of waves.
The swell should be a bit bigger today, more of a solid four feet than the three to four feet of Tuesday maybe.
Yep, we are in for another fabulous day of surf!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those tedious north westerly winds look set to finally blow themselves away at the start of the week but maybe not until Tuesday. And then we will probably have a day of mixed conditions as the wind settles to more of a breeze and starts to gently drift to the south east, offshore all along the coast!
And although there is a big spread of high pressure not so far away, there’s enough wind activity out in the Atlantic to spin a few swells our way too.
We should be seeing a decent three foot plus swell one we get into this week, building just a little through midweek before easing into the back half and then re-buildin into the weekend.
But for most of the time that pleasant offshore breeze should be shaping any waves that we do get into something better, something more fun, maybe something quite special by midweek!
And we should see some brighter weather too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
