At 8.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s cold and it’s wet and it’s windy out there this morning, in spite of that fabulous golden sunburst dawn this morning which followed a rose tinted explosion of a sunset last night.
But the wind is buffeting its way in from the south sou’ west today, a slightly kinder direction which should bring some milder air our way as we go along.
There’s also a building swell lumping into the bay with three to four feet of almost clean but bumpy and unpredictable, slow moving surf shifting around the rips and currents of high tide Constantine.
It will double in size by this afternoon and then get bigger again.
So, let’s go look at Harlyn………..
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The wind is shuffling offshore at Harlyn Bay this morning as a fun looking three feet or so of wintery looking but inviting, clean surf crashes ashore.
It looks like Cheyne is out there with a surf class and they have the beach to themselves catching long rides as the tide gradually eases its way out.
If that’s your style of surf then you’d better get on it quick, we’re expecting a new and big swell to be pummelling its way into all of our bays over the next few days!
But right now it looks like a lazy, fun session to be had!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:23 (1.1m) High Tide: 20:15 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 7th January 2022
Strong north westerly winds are going to be shaking and shuffling some big swells as they batter our coastline today.
We can expect some mountainous seas to be exploding into our bays and coves for the next few days and if you add to that an expected little front that will drop temperatures through this afternoon, then you might regret not having chosen a kinder pastime to pursue.
The ocean on this side of the Duchy might well be better left alone today, although the other coast should be throwing up some more interesting options maybe!?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A wintery weekend is promising to blow away any leftover cobwebs away this weekend as big swells are swept our way by strong and gusting winds.
Add some cold, cold temperatures into that mix and you might be forgiven for battening down the hatches, stoking the fire up and snuggling up with you favourite human to watch a box set or three.
Or, you could adventure out and discover parts of the other coast that should be offering clean and pumping surf conditions, especially if you can mange to tuck yourself down out of that wind.
But locally, there’s not going to be much chance of getting a surf in this weekend and it might all be best avoided.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
