At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
It’s a cold and blustery winter’s day out there as a chilling northerly wind rattles down the coast this morning.
There’s four or five feet of windblown and chopped out windswell being bounced into the bays but nothing worth surfing and not much on promise either.
If you are back to working from home to start the new year then it’s a wrap up warm and stay cosy kind of day, maybe broken up by a windswept waltz in the wind later?
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 4 feet
Ah, it is nice to cruise into an empty Harlyn Bay after the festive rush of the last couple of weeks.
But that quietness just tells you that the surf is pretty junked out with three or four feet of choppy and broken up, blown out surf.
It’s a great place to be blown about in solitude this morning but there’s no surf here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:51 (0.9m) High Tide: 18:44 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 5th January 2022
North westerly winds are going to continue to bluster and fuss our way again today, blowing cold air along the coast while chopping out the small and close together little surf.
It’s a day for other things today but at least it should be a bit brighter and drier.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We are in for a windswept start to this year of the 2s, with cold northerly winds swinging down the Duchy well into midweek bringing low temperatures, weak windblown swells and generally very junky surf conditions.
Those winds are going to make for choppy and messy conditions in the sea with only small wind swells being bundled onto our beaches until Thursday when we should see a southerly swing to the wind. And that wind shift should push more swell our way.
The main breaks are likely to continue to be windswept and choppy but our sheltered breaks like Hralyn should come into their own.
Those swells are going to increase in size through the end of the week getting big for the weekend but of course that wind might just back more westerly making even Harlyn a bumpy and testing affair.
But that’s a while away yet and there could be many variations to those weather patterns.
In the meantime though, we are in for a cold and windy, choppy start to this new Year!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have yourself the happiest of Happy New Years, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
