At 8.15 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 6 to 8 feet
A bright and beautiful sunrise is bringing a clear and cheerful start to the day all along the coast this morning, a light offshore breeze just chilling the air, that same powerful swell continuing to roar and surge into the bay.
A solid 6 feet of majestic peaks are majestically gliding into the bay before curling and looping to shore, the bigger sets of towering bombs exploding through the lineup every so often.
The sun is shining, the sky is clear, the wind is light and the surf is pumping on this fabulous midwinter’s day!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Three feet and bigger of thick and lumpy, low tide torn surf is crashing onto the sand here this morning, with half a dozen or so already in and picking off a few screachers.
It’s a bit odd that nobody is in at any of the breaks over the headland where it’s six feet and bowling through, while the car park is starting to busy up here where it’s half the size and a bit more closey outy.
That’s probably the winter effect of having less paddling to do maybe?
And they are getting a few quick ones here too but the other side is just pumping!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:04 (2.0m) High Tide: 16:00 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 15th January 2018
Ah, those north westerlies look like they are making an unwelcome return today.
A blustery onshore is expected to blow all day long making a mess of the big and booming but trashed out surf.
If you want anything with some shape you’re going to have to travel over to the other coast and make yourself welcome!
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!
