Ay 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind has increase in strength this morning but it is still offshore, still shaping those waves into something more hollow and those waves are still pumping!
Four to six to eight feet (on the biggest sets – but you’ll have to wait for those ones) of grey and majestic rolling waves are prowling their way into the bay, seeking the shallowest of spots to explode over before reeling off to dry sand.
The weather is a little dismal but that’s not such a drama when the surf is this good.
And that wind should ease back as the tide fills in this afternoon too.
So, it’s all good and should get better!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Three feet of Harlyn hollowness is snapping onto that hard low tide sand here this morning, those swell lines trying to swing around the headland and into the bay, a lot of them overshooting and lighting up other places but a few making it worthwhile for those patient enough to wait.
The wind is set offshore all day and there’s enough swell to make it worthwhile if the other side is not your thing. On a day like this we have that lovely indulgence of just selecting our favourite surf break – the whole coast should be on fire today!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 14th January 2018
You might want to set your alarm if you’re looking to make the most of today, those light offshores of the morning are likely to switch onshore at the better breaks by lunchtime.
So that same thick and solid swell should be rolling in against a steady south easterly breeze through the morning, the wind calming as we go along and eventually backing to the south west by early afternoon.
There should still be enough swell to keep Harlyn sharp and hollow through the afternoon but the more exposed surf breaks will deteriorate as that breeze ruffles and crumbles the surf as the day goes on.
We might even enjoy some sunshine through today too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
This weekend is promising great things!
A solid and well spaced, rhythmic swell should be pulling our way throughout the weekend.
Those thick and heavy four to six feet waves are likely to be manicured into smooth and hollow, curling barrels of fun all day long!
The wind is likely to start off brisk and smart, offshore and chilly. but it will soon ease up, ending the day as a calm breeze drifting up the faces of those reeling wavse.
The air is likely to be still through Sunday morning, allowing some chunky waves to smoothly peel into the bays. It might be worth looking for somewhere that can take those big enough and strong enough swells without an offshore to add some shape to them.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
