At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
It is nice to be back at our silent and deserted beach on this mild and breezy, dry but threatening morning.
That breeze is from the south west, just slopping the thick and rolling swell making those sets of waves a little unpredictable. The set waves have some size to them with well overhead 4 to 6 foot lumps bundling through every now and again.
But Harlyn should be the place to aim for today……
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 4 feet
The breeze is steady and offshore at Harlyn this morning, hollowing out the two to four feet of smooth and snappy, closing-out surf as swell lines swings wide and cleanly into the bay.
The biggest set waves are a long, long way apart but the smaller ones are fun looking – and not shutting down as much as the set waves.
With an early afternoon high tide we should be looking at a pretty fun day of surf at Harlyn today!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 8th January 2020
This could be fun!
A day of two distinct halves could just produce some epic moments if you are prepared and on it!
The thick and lumpy, decent sized surf of the morning could just become magnificent as the breeze backs offshore and weakens through the afternoon.
If you know where to go and when, you might just find some excellent surf and not too far away either!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The first week of the year is promising a mix of sizeable surf, blustery weather and mild air temperatures.
Thick groundswells will be rolling our way all week long with those strong winds starting out from the south west, calming to an easterly, offshore breeze for a few hours through midweek before returning mainly to the south west for the rest of the week.
So Harlyn is likely to be the destination of choice for most this week and big and hollow Harlyn too!
Although for those few hours midweek there could just be some fabulous surf at those spots that can hold and shape some big and open swells as they glide our way.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
