At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
The bays are quiet on this damp and mizzly morning, the sky merging into the sea in a veil of damp grey. But it’s mild and peaceful with three feet and maybe bigger of rolling swell sliding up the sand and crashing onto the rocks.
What breeze there is is drifting across from the south west, strong enough to crumble the surf but otherwise barely noticeable.
Harlyn (2*): 2 feet
Harlyn is tranquil this morning, the sound of small waves washing onto the sand mixing with the gurgle and hiss of the deep and fast moving stream draining the run-off of weeks of rain.
The surf is small, barely a couple of feet or so but it’s clean and smooth and could be fun on the right board and in the right company.
You’ll need to keep the damp out if walking but otherwise it’s a pleasant enough place to hang while waking up.

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 23rd December 2020
Hmm, we might just get a few hours of good surf today, well, maybe even excellent for a moment – if we’re lucky.
With a rolling four feet of swell pushing along the coast the breeze is forecast to lighten and back to the south and then the south east, offshore at our favourite surf breaks.
It won’t be long before that breeze eases more to the north just as the swell pulses a little bigger. But if you time it just right then you could very well enjoy some really very good surf today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The North Atlantic is another mixed up mess of low pressure systems, storms and wetness this week but hopefully most of the drama will slide by to the side of us, throwing some waves our way but maybe being kinder on the weather front.
Saying that, Harlyn is still going to be our ‘go-to’ surf break of the week, with mainly south westerly winds screeching along our coastline.
The swells likely to stay in the four to six feet range through the first half of the week, easing back a wee bit through Christmas Eve.
By Christmas Day we should be enjoying only small two foot waves but being groomed by a brisk north easterly wind blowing just offshore enough to make it clean and fun. But those north easterly winds are going to be cold!
We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine but that wind is going to bite you!
And we’ll soon be back to fresh blowing, wet and dreary conditions as the post Christmas weekend settles into a blur of food, drink, long walks and short, sharp surfs.
Stay safe, stay happy and stay well wherever you are and whatever you’re doing and have yourself a very Merry Christmas!!
