Surf Report for Friday 17th October 2014

Constantine (2*):  6 to 8 feet

at 7.20 a.m.


Another bright and cheerful morning is gradually appearing through the late darkness of early morning.
And the surf is still rolling our way, those thick and frothy waves so far brushing off the offshore breeze, still keeping its lumpiness instead of that ‘groomed’ loveliness that we all want and that you just know is happening up the coast and down the coast.
There are loads of thick and lumpy waves rolling in here this morning but it must be breaking so much better at so many other places.
Maybe the wind will swing more easterly, that will clean it up here and it is forecast to but it’s also forecast to strengthen a lot as well.
Hmm, it might just be a day to trundle off in search of something better!
Or give it a couple of hours and let the tide have its way?
If it does improve I’ll get a couple of snapshots onto the usual social media sites (constantinesurf) but in the meantime, Croyde, Bude, Fistral or St. Ives are probably going to have better conditions.
Or maybe Harlyn?


Harlyn (4*):  2 to 4 feet


Yep, there are some sets pushing in here this morning, you have to wait for them and they are tending to close out at low tide but they are there.
It’s that kind of two foot day with four foot sets every ten minutes or more.
My guess is that it should improve (maybe a lot!) with this morning’s incoming tide, evening out those gaps and offering something more consistent.
So, it’s okay and might get good later!
But I can’t help but think that somewhere else along this raggedy little coastline of ours could be divine today!


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  19:50  (2.9m)          High Tide:  13:00  (5.6m)


Surf Forecast for Saturday 18th October 2014

It’s looking like a definite Harlyn day today with a blustery south westerly wind supporting that solid wavelength, thick and heavy swell.
I think that we can safely assume that Harlyn will be rolling in at four or five or six feet all day long! And that wind is offshore here too!
So, a blustery day filled with growling waves filled with power and and energy awaits!
It’s what Saturdays were made for!


Surf Conditions for the Weekend

We have been enjoying a week of booming surf with that deep and still deepening low pressure system out there generating some thick and steady swells that continue to travel our way.
Six to eight to ten feet of powerful, more wintery kind of swells are pushing their way onto our surf breaks, a steady, sometimes strong south, sou’ westerly wind supporting those swells all the way.
Our sheltered spots are going to be the draw for the weekend, Harlyn in particular but with a few other breaks starting to shine too.
And if you want a little adventure there are going to be tucked away little breaks all up and down the coast with their very own little characteristics!
Yep, we are in for a surf drenched weekend of booming waves!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
