At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 6 to 8 feet
A light southerly breeze is drifting out from a very calm and settled Constantine Bay this morning, the roar of six to eight feet of growling swell competing with the chirrup and cheep cheep of the early morning seabirds.
The swell is too big for itself here this morning, that spring high tide creating a lot of bounce and backwash but if the breeze stays kind things could improve a whole lot as the swell settles on the dropping tide.
Saying that, there will be a whole lot of other places with better surf today!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
A deceptive few feet of surf is bouncing into Harlyn Bay on the early morning high tide, the backwash and depth of a still big spring tide absorbing most of the energy from those three to four foot waves.
But the sky is clear, the breeze is light and offshore so far and the surf should only improve on the dropping tide.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:06 (0.7m) High Tide: 19:59 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 19th May 2022
A south westerly breeze is likely to be pushing along a decent four feet plus of bouncing swell all day today, that bright and pleasant weather making it all look that little bit more inviting.
So Harlyn is likely to be a clean and sharp two to three feet while the more west facing breaks will be a crumblier and choppier four feet or so.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We should be enjoying some bigger surf all along the Cornish coast this week.
Starting out small and being fanned by light springlike breezes, a driving swell will soon push large lumps of growing swell into our bays and coves, the swell doubling in size through Tuesday.
Although it is likely to be blustery by midweek, the wind could just settle to the south south east, offshore at our best breaks. Add to this a thick four to six foot swell and you have the makings of some fine and testing surf at all of our surf breaks.
Harlyn is likely to be a popular choice to surf locally especially as the wind backs to the south west, mainly during the afternoons.
Overall it looks like we’re in for plenty of surf this week and with little spells of really very good conditions in amongst it all too!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
