Constantine (1*): Flat to 1 foot
at 6.55 a.m.
It’s a muggy old one this morning, the sky grey, the sea grey too. But it’s kind of nice in a cosy sort of way, there’s barely a breeze and it is unseasonably warm.
The surf is barely breaking, an occasional one foot of shimmering glass rippling across that silk like surface, the weak whitewater like torn and jagged streaks on its surface. It’s rideable but you’re going to need a bigger board, something buoyant, something stable. And you’re going to need some patience too, those mini sets are a long way apart!
I guess that these warm conditions cannot last forever, so we’d best make the most of them!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is flat around here again this morning, a ripple less pond of smoothness stretching to the horizon. A great place to launch your SUP or Kayak or whatever but it’s not the place for a surfboard, not today.
But that could change over the next few days!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 20th September 2014
Are you ready?
Board waxed? Suit dry? Fins set?
Good, because you’re going to need them!
We should enjoy a lovely day of building surf, light winds and incredibly pleasant weather (don’t believe the Beeb!).
The day might start slowly with only small surf conditions looking pretty under a gentle offshore breeze. And by noon we should be seeing a doubling in size and the same again by tea time. By the afternoon high tide we should be enjoying a half decent three feet or so of fun surf with those sea breezes kicking in and producing a light onshore. That should keep the groms happy by adding a few launchpad ramps for them to fly off.
Have a great day of fun surf!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
The swell generators that are out in the Atlantic are way down beneath Biscay and way up above Greenland and Iceland. And so the swells that were reeling onto our surf breaks this week have travelled a fair old way, smoothing themselves out and generating a lot of power and shape (for their size) along the way. And so were having a double swell hit through the early part of this week, the refracted and reflected bounce of swell from the very tip of Cornwall alongside those lines that swung around Ireland.
When they coincide is when those powerful and smooth lines start throwing some more tubular shapes!
And there’s no reason to think that it’s going anywhere for a while yet.
In fact, as ex hurricane Edouard joins the mix, even bigger waves should be generated and propelled to our coastline for the weekend! And then there’s another deepening low being generated out to the west too. That should beef up those swells as we go through the weekend, churning some decent sized waves our way. Watch out for that one, it might just push some bumping swell our way but might also decide to jump into the party itself – that will remind us of Autumn if it does!
So, we can expect great surf, warm air, warm water and eventually some more sunshine throughout this weekend, a very decent couple to three feet on Saturday with only light winds, maybe slipping onshore through the afternoon as the sea breeze effect kicks in but still okay, while Sunday is full of three to four feet of offshore heaven!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
