At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
Another wall of wet and silver, lo-viz dampness is fogging things up again this morning, the surf just visible through the murk.
And a couple to three feet of fattish, grey waves are tumbling through the gloom, a very light north easterly breeze trying to hold their weight but needing slightly more east in it to clean things more.
But it does look fun and it is a Bank Holiday while the forecast continues to promise some more brightness, eventually.
So it could just end up being pleasant enough, maybe.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The barely noticeable north easterly breeze is breathing onshore at Harlyn, lightly crumbling and slopping the tiny surf.
Occasional one foot waves are tumbling ashore but with not much power or conviction, just sloppily tumbling their way to land.
The kids will love it, especially if the sun does decide to put in a more convincing appearance at any time today.
But right now it’s grey and dark and foggy!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 8th May 2018
Starting out with a light south westerly breeze, a north westerly will soon change that, making for sloppier conditions at all of our breaks.
With a steady two feet of lumpy swell rolling our way the breeze is likely to strengthen through mid-afternoon so you might want to get in early or later on, maybe after work if the breeze has eased.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As our Bank Holiday visitors gradually ease themselves back to reality we should start to lose those annoying fog banks, which will of course eventually be replaced by wind and rain!
By Tuesday afternoon the breeze will be increasing in strength having switched to the north west. And some cloudier weather will start to see some showers flowing our way.
Meantime the swell should start to increase, doubling in size overnight into Wednesday and building steadily into the back half of the week.
Harlyn should start to find its feet as south westerly winds blow through on Wednesday, a decent three to four feet of hollow surf bowling through there.
Big wave will be battering our coastline through Thursday, the north westerly wind junking it all out on this coast but by Friday a direct southerly wind will show off some spots to their best, especially with a solid groundswell rolling through in the six foot plus size range.
So, a breezy and damp week approaches but feeling fresher and more lively than it has done, with plenty of surf for everyone on both coasts!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
