At 8.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind has eased this morning, allowing the mizzle filled sky of greyness a chance to settle a while, the smaller surf just sloshing around in the bays. That three or four feet of surf is still very sloppy and mushy though, it will need an offshore to clean it up and we might not see that for a day or two yet.
It feels milder too but maybe only for a while according to the forecasts.
Have as fabulous a New Year as you can, a little different to other years maybe but hopefully still full of love and understanding.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
The bay is almost empty again this morning, the odd camper van looking a little out of place as their cloaks of invisibility fail to impress.
But the air is milder, the breeze almost still as a steady light mizzle falls from the sky. A foot or two of surf is lazily washing onto the sand without much shape or direction.
It might improve a little on this afternoon’s tide but it’s unlikely to be all that. It might be worth a wet but that’s about all.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:52 (1.6m) High Tide: 17:42 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for New Year’s Eve 2020
North westerly winds will continue to slop and chop some smaller swells as they bounce drunkenly into our bays.
We’ll be lucky if we see much more than a foot or two of sloppy surf to ride today!
Surf Conditions for the New Year Weekend
This strangest of New Years should arrive with some cleaner and sharper, if smaller surf.
Offshore breezes are forecast for the whole weekend but with only a foot or so of swell. That little swell might just have a little more oomph than you might expect though, having a very decent wave period to it for its size.
The wind is mainly going to blow from the north east and that means it will be breathing very cold air over us. So, although we might just enjoy some bright and sunny wintery blue skies, it is likely to feel freezing cold.
Stay safe, stay happy and stay well wherever you are and whatever you’re doing and have yourself a sparkling New Year!!
