Surf Report for Tuesday, 7th January

Constantine (1*) – 8-10′

It has calmed down this morning, there has been a little loud thunder and some torrential rain but the wind has eased a notch or three and the swell has probably halved.

It is still pretty huge though!

Eight to ten feet plus waves are still bouncing around out there, peaking and cresting before whomping ashore, shoving aside anything in its way. Yep, there is still some serious power rolling around out there and on second glance it is probably a bit bigger than it looks too!

We won’t be surfing here today, again, it is a little bit too much still!

It’s back across that storm ravaged headland we go for another squint at Harlyn……..

Harlyn (4*) – 4-5′

4stars

The swell has dropped quite a bit around here this morning, it is still booming through but without that ferociousness of yesterday!

Three to four to five feet of surf continues to roll through, bigger on the occasional sets, the south, sou’ westerly wind still blowing into those wave faces, still holding those waves up until the last possible minute!

It’s a good couple of hours before high tide and those set waves are already washing along what’s left of Anthony’s battered sea defence, the bigger surges getting under the bridge. So I guess that it might just be that bit bigger than it looks here as well!

But, as the day calms and brightens and the sea gradually calms, you can just feel a day of fun surf about to unfold.

Although there are going to be some breaks along the coast that are going to turn on today and will probably end up being pretty fabulous. It could still be worth having a little shuffty further afield if you’re looking for some perfection!

Today’s Tide Times:

High Tide: 09:36 (7.1m) Low Tide: 16.03 (1.6m)

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 8th January 2014

The wind is likely to continue to ease through the morning, maybe even twitching offshore (south easterly) for a moment or two during late morning. That is only a ‘maybe’ but a very possible ‘maybe’! But if it does, our main breaks should light up!

There will still be plenty of swell around, a solid four to six feet plus at the main breaks, three feet plus at the sheltered spots. So, if that wind does switch offshore then it will be really good!

But realistically it’s looking more like a day of fun surf at Harlyn. Those three foot plus waves still having plenty of shape, that storm smoothed beach spinning off a few ‘not close-outs’ here and there.

Make the most of any late morning improvements though, the wind is forecast to start to gust again by mid-afternoon!
