At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 foot
A spectacular sunburst of light is exploding over the coast at dawn this morning, the headland and bays stunning in the late summer sunshine of a more autumnal feeling morning.
The air is still, the sea smooth and the tiny surf peaking and peeling across the shoreline.
It is rideable, just but you are going to need something buoyant to get the best out of it today!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Harlyn is bristling with colour in that explosion of a sunlit dawn this morning, the sea shimmering in its calmness, while the emptying camping fields take a clear aired breath.
The surf is flat but the paddling opportunities are huge.
Or maybe just a swim? The water is warm.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:34 (1.6m) High Tide: 17:27 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 1st September 2020
So, as the last few holidaying visitors gradually drift away, the breeze is forecast to switch offshore.
And the swell is predicted to build.
Three feet and offshore?
With plenty of Sunshine?
And time to enjoy it?
That’ll do nicely.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The mainstream media seem to have not quite got it right (again?) as a very quiet and obviously weird season slams to an end.
The tales of Cornwall being ‘full to capacity’ or ‘closed for business’ while we all quaked and shook with fear of a mass invasion of virally infected tourists were (surprise, surprise!) – wrong.
And, while the Daily Bleuurghs are now saying that we are in for a super extended season, a winter of sun seeking holidaymakers to make up for the three months of closure followed by a very patchy few weeks of trading. Well, I dunno but something tells me that that might not be accurate either.
It’s unlikely that anyone is busily packing their suncream and bikini for a lounge in the Cornish sunshine this winter!
But then again, we live in hope…..
Anyway, back in the real world, we happy little surf riding people can look forward to a mixed up week of varying conditions.
Calm and settled, bright and still conditions will kick the week off with tiny conditions seeing a chilly Bank Holiday Weekend come to a close.
The swell is likely to slowly build with light offshore breezes and some bright sunshine adding to the attractiveness of Tuesday’s small but super fun and clean surf.
The wind will start to ease back to a more south westerly direction as we go through midweek and that will give the surf an extra push too, adding to the four to six foot swell that is expected by the end of the week.
So those calm and peaceful, summer surf vibe filled days at the beginning of the week will quickly be replaced by a taste of autumn with Harlyn conditions kicking in for the end of the week.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
