At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 8 to 10 feet
The surf is roaring into the bay beneath more grey skies this morning, a light sou’ wester fluttering in, fresh enough to stir and slop the eight or ten feet of heavy and rippy surf.
It’s a peaceful, quiet place to be first thing in the morning g but the surf isn’t exactly inviting.
Harlyn (4*): 4 to 8 feet
Cars and vans are already cluttering the lane in the half light of a Harlyn winter’s dawn, a sure giveaway that the surf is pounding.
And sure enough some four to six foot, lumping waves are thumping onto the low tide sand with much bigger beach-wide close-out sets walloping the lineup every twenty minutes or so.
It’s going to be a reaction tester of a surf session but the paddle-out is more of a hop and a skip rather than that chore of the more open breaks.
The spongers amongst us are having a whomping thump of a time around the corner with mighty wedges unfolding moments of thick and hollow pleasure.
It’s what Sundays are made for!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Monday 13th December 2021
A steady south westerly breeze is expected to chop and slop the six foot swells at our main breaks again today but Harlyn will be shining as that wind blows lightly offshore against the smaller swells at Harlyn.
We can expect some fun three to four foot surf here, pretty much all day long.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
High pressure looks like it might just edge over us enough by midweek to provide some calm and settled weather conditions with light offshore breezes.
But we have a few days of fairly light south westerlies blowing mild but damper air our way first .
So, while our main surf breaks continue to produce wind slopped and lumpy, decent sized but lousy shaped surf for the start of the week, Harlyn will be strutting its offshore groomed stuff, producing some very pleasant surf for the next few days.
That thumping swell will only gradually ease in size through the start of the week, Harlyn showing some solid four foot plus surf through Monday and into Tuesday, dropping to three feet or so by midweek.
The main breaks will obviously be bigger but much more choppy.
And then high pressure should just manage to edge over bringing light offshore breezes to groom and polish a very pleasant four to six foot swell!
A very surfy Christmas might just arrive early for Cornish surfers at the end of this week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
