At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A brightening sky is gradually spreading across an otherwise greys and damp morning down in the bays, the depths of a spring high tide absorbing a foot or two of rolling little swell.
The breeze is offshore from the south south east right now but is forecast to slip onshore through early afternoon.
So get the longboard out again if you want a surf!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
A gentle wash is rippling across the high tide sand at a very peaceful Harlyn Bay this morning, that heavy grey sky slowly giving way to something just a little brighter.
There’s no surf to ride here just yet – but that is going to change soon enough!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:40 (0.6m) High Tide: 18:30 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 17th May 2022
Southerly winds are going to be blustering across a building swell today, the two to three feet of hesitantly rolling surf being soon replaced by five to six feet of thick and driving swell.
There are likely to be way better breaks to surf not too far away but we should see some chunky, rolling peaks driving into our bays too.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We should be enjoying some bigger surf all along the Cornish coast this week.
Staring 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!
