At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 6 feet
A steady sou’ westerly wind is greeting us this morning, the air temperature milder than it has been, the sky a bluer shade of grey – maybe hinting at better to come?
The surf has built overnight too with four to five feet and bigger sets of waves roaring into the bay, all lively and fidgety and energised. It is such a shame that the wind is onshore and so making for lumpy and bumpy, sloppy surf.
But there’s always Harlyn!…..
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Three to four feet of curling and reeling waves are catapulting the occasional peeling peak onto the high tide bank off the Rock this morning.
The wind is fresh and offshore here, holding those waves steep just for that extra bit of time.
Yep, it looks fun and should get funnerer as the day rolls on!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 24th January 2018
Howling sou’ westerly winds are going to continue to chaperone some big swells our way, those waves exploding in the onshore winds at the main surf breaks but reeling and spinning at the sheltered, more northerly facing spots like Harlyn.
With those swells being in the ten to fifteen feet size range, it will be worth taking some care if you do venture out, even Harlyn is likely to get into the ‘big’ range, while those south westerly facing beaches are going to be huge!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks as though we should be enjoying some south westerly winds this week, along with some more thick, heavy and sizeable rolling winter swells.
Although those north westerly winds are going to open the week with onshore conditions all along the coast, the wind should veer to the south west soon enough, still onshore at our favourite breaks but offshore at our sheltered north facing breaks.
Those wintery swells are going to build into the week too, getting into the ‘big’ range through midweek and maybe getting real big by the back half of the week.
But you know what will happen then don’t you? Yep, the wind will kick back to north westerly, just to chop and slop those big, big waves!
Thank goodness for the south coast! We have had some fabulous surf over over there since the start of the year and it looks like that is set to continue through the end of this week too!
So, shame about the weather but with just a little bit of looking and seeking we should find some excellent conditions each day this week!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
