At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 3 to 4 feet
The Bays are cosy and calm this morning, a snug blanket of winter grey covering us in stillness as a smooth and even swell unfolds itself over the sandbars and reefs.
Three feet and bigger of evenly spaced and glassy, curling swell is gliding ashore, spinning plenty of head high screamers for a few earlybirds over off the Point.
It is a very, very pleasant place to be this morning.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Not much of that smooth and even swell that is sweeping into the west facing bays is managing to find its way into Harlyn this morning but the odd little group of waves are managing to shoosh their way ashore. A couple of feet of glassy faced tumblers are flopping their way onto the sand a couple of hours ahead of high tide beneath that grey, winter’s sky.
There are many other breaks both up and down the coast that will be enjoying way better surf than here today but if this is your only option then you should enjoy a few snappy little gliders.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:29 (2.0m) High Tide: 10:04 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 26th January 2022
Smaller surf will greet us today, smaller but still a good couple of feet hopefully and starting out glassy and clean too.
The breeze is likely to switch onshore through mid afternoon so you might want to go for a morning or lunchtime session rather than wait but there should be enough waves to keep that stoke of the last week or two going for just a little longer!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We are likely to see a change to these settled conditions as this week goes on but hopefully we will have a few more days of clean surf before this lovely period of settled and organised surf ends!
That high pressure system that has provided these conditions is likely to drift away through Wednesday allowing more westerly breezes to bump and chop the couple of feet of still fun swell.
But by week’s end that high is probably going to have settled back to resting over the south west of the Duchy allowing more calm conditions while allowing a fresh and building swell through.
And then the two to three feet and bumpy conditions of midweek will again be replaced by more smooth three to four feet waves, building to four to six feet as we go into the weekend.
But that high pressure system might easily slip just a little too far into Europe, taking with it our hopes for some more exquisite surf through the weekend. But only time will tell on that one, we could yet get away with a day or two or three extra of clean and shreddable surf before the return of onshore winds.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
