At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
A teeth chatteringly chilly nor’ wester is blowing down the coast this morning, shuffling the three to maybe four feet of surf into a messed up bundle of chop.
The sky is bright enough with bundles of candy floss cloud tumbling across the horizon but it is cold again out there!
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
That freezing wind is blustering into Harlyn this morning, keeping the dog walkers scurrying and the joggers shuffling.
The surf is small, too small to test these temperatures but then again, the sea temperature is still hovering around 12 deg C, which is mild enough in a decent wetsuit.
Hmm, it ain’t great though.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:28 (2.4m) High Tide: 10:49 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 9th December 2020
That irritating north westerly wind should give way to a more southerly blow as we go through midday today, which just might tidy the couple to three feet of surf into something a little more attractive.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Cold onshore winds are going to start this week, a brisk and freezing nor’ wester chilling its way into the bays and testing your wetsuit seams, while junking out the three to four foot and quite weak swell.
There will be a little window of opportunity to grab some decent surf as we go into the back half of the week with the wind switching offshore for a while. That ‘while’ might only last a few hours though so you’d have to be on it to get the best of it. But with the start of a new swell rolling our way on Thursday morning and the chance of those cleaner winds then that might be the day to aim for.
After that, well it’s back to more nor’ westerlies chilling the air and trashing the surf right through till the weekend.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
