At 8.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 feet
Those north westerlies are back, an unwelcome start to the week with cold and blustery squalls hosing down the already storm battered beach fronts.
There are some big and lumpy, windswept swells bouncing their way ashore but you wouldn’t want to go paddling out there, not today.
It might be worth a trip south though?
Harlyn (2*): 3 feet
Three feet of bumpyish, grey and hesitant little waves are tumbling into the bay this morning, all very rideable but hardly enticing.
The tide might sort out those crumbly waves as it rolls back in through the afternoon but the north westerly wind is likely to keep everything more in the ‘junk’ range than anything else.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:47 (1.8m) High Tide: 16:41 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 16th January 2018
Big waves are going to be bowled ashore by strong and strengthening winds, those gale force north westerlies turning into storm force blasts.
It might be worth giving it a miss for a day or two – unless you want to travel a bit?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Those onshore (on this coast) north westerly winds are returning for this week, coinciding with a big and solid swell.
Ten to fifteen feet of choppy and windswept surf is going to plague our surf breaks all week long, teasing and testing and re-modelling our bays and beaches.
If we want to enjoy some clean and rideable surf this week then we are going to have to travel, the south coast being our obvious and nearest destination of choice. The beauty of that at this time of year though is that we should be able to find some quiet and secluded, great breaking surf spots and maybe have them all to ourselves too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
