At 6.55 a.m:  

Constantine (2*):  8 to 10 feet  

 

 

A fine sea-mist is clinging to the headlands and hedgerows this morning, filling the valleys with a snug and cosy hush in complete contrast to the roar of those thick and lumping, big, big swells that are exploding ashore down in the bay.
Eight to ten feet and bigger of walling and pitching, reeling surf is marching into the bays, with a long wait between the main sets of wide, grey peaks. But the lightest of nor’ westerly breezes is not helping the shape and there’s also a lot of water swirling around out there, which will making paddling out a mighty chore.
Those massive peaks over at Booby’s are looking appealing, although we all know that other spots will be spinning much more organised and less testing, more enjoyable waves off Points and Rivermouths and more sheltered spots all along the Cornish coastline.
The South Coast must be smoking!

Harlyn (2*):  4 to 6 feet  

 

 

Although the north westerly breeze can barely be felt at Harlyn this morning, it is having its effect on the erratic and very, very setty surf.
Some sizeable waves are crunching onto the dropping mid-tide sand but there’s not a lot of shape or direction to any of them. So, although it’s all very attractive and peaceful in the early morning mist, the surf isn’t doing that much to excite.

Surf Forecast for Thursday 17th March 2022  

The wind is forecast to have backed to the south west today which should create much better conditions for the surf at Harlyn.
With a still thumping mid-teens wave period on a six to eight foot swell continuing to roll our way we can expect some decent four foot plus and tubing surf at Harlyn, all day long!    

 

 

Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

A mixed up week of surf bliss and frustrating onshores is going to be rewarding those who can make the time and who are keen enough to make the effort to get the most out of the mixed but satisfying surf conditions.
A calm start to the week will leave us wishing for offshore breezes to clean up a chunky but disorganised four foot swell. That breeze will soon arrive, along with clear skies and plenty of sunshine to produce a day of magic for those surfers with the time and access to enjoy it all.
But by midweek, cold and wet onshores will be blowing from the north and west, chopping and messing a frustratingly solid six to eight foot swell. There’s likely to be a convoy of surfers heading for the far coast on Wednesday!
But by week’s end and all the way through the weekend, that same pumping swell is likely to be manicured by offshore blowing winds beneath clear, springlike skies.
It’s looking good and it won’t be long before the clocks spring forward and the water temperatures start to rise!
Maybe it’s time for a new board?
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
