It’s an atmospheric morning down in the bay this morning, that gusting, cold wind scattering cloud upon cloud while dawn tries to burst through over on the other side.
The surf is a bit wild, not big just blown around the place by this brisk north westerly wind. And the wind strength has eased from last night too!
So, there’s four or five feet of rolling and choppy surf rearing up over the shallows, fattening out over the deeps.
That dark and grey sea is hardly beckoning this morning, there’s more of a ‘don’t go here’ kind of feel to it. The south coast would be much more organised but i don’t know if it will be big enough?
Let’s have a little look at Harlyn and see if that is any better…….
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
No, the north west wind is gusting straight into the bay here this morning, junking out the two to three feet of mixed up and very messy surf.
It’s an hour or two ahead of high tide and so you would think that it is pretty much as good as it’s likely to get today with at least some shelter to this wind being provided by the headlands and dunes.
But it’s still junk!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Sunday 28th December 2014
We should be enjoying a completely different day today, the wind light and offshore, the swell small but pleasantly shaped, the sky brighter and clearer.
Yep, a colder day maybe but full of bright and pleasant surfy fun.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
After Saturday’s chilly, damp and fairly miserable surf conditions, the weekend should brighten through Sunday, the wind light and offshore, helping to shape those little waves into more fun ones in some bright winter sunshine.
Small surf conditions are going to be all that we can expect for the last week of the year, getting bigger towards NYE but with mixed winds as we go into midweek.
So, there will be surf, starting out small and sweet becoming more mixed up through the week as the weather becomes a little milder.
Let the festive celebrations continue!
Merry Christmas, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
