Surf Report for Friday 18th August 2017

At 6.15 a.m:  

Constantine (1*):  3 to 4 feet  

It’s a breezy one this morning with the hedgerows rippling along the lanes and the marram flowing across the dunes, those winter blue waves being toppled and shuffled.
Three to maybe four feet of deep blue surf is cresting ashore, those mixed up peaks bouncing into each other in their hurry to sprawl on the sand. It’s not great surf but there are some decent drop-ins to be had offering loads of fun. And the weather is bright and cheerful right now and that always helps!  

 

Harlyn (1*):  1 to 2 feet  

A foot or two of not that clean surf is wandering into Harlyn this morning, the wind too westerly to clean it the way we would like.
But it is more even than the other side and the odd little set is trickling off the Rock with enough speed and direction to make it tempting.
There are another good couple of hours before low tide so there’s no rush, things should improve a lot as the tide rises through the middle of the day.  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  09:12  (2.0m)              High Tide:  15:12  (6.3m)

Surf Forecast for Saturday 19th August 2017  

Carnival Day!
St. Merryn Carnival rolls through the village this evening with a chaos of floats meeting at the Playing Fields at 6pm for the procession at 7pm!
And it’s always a fun evening!
Otherwise it is all looking like a repeat of Friday’s conditions down in the bays with an expected three to four feet of broken up and lightly sloppy surf expected, driven in by a mainly westerly wind. The weather is promising to be not much better than okay with highs of 18 deg C expected in that brisk westerly wind and that ever present chance of a wandering cloud burst.
But ‘okay’ will do at this time of year!

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

Westerly, eventually going south westerly winds are going to be blowing hard all weekend long. We are going to see a few hard falling showers in amongst an otherwise bright enough and quite pleasant weekend.
So we should be enjoying three feet of fairly bumpy and close together, rolling waves at Harlyn all day long on Saturday while conditions should be much smarter and sharper at Harlyn for Sunday.
So a proper Harlyn weekend awaits with in blustery but mainly bright and cheery conditions!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
