At 8.15 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 to 4 feet
There’s a bit of an identity crisis going on with the weather this morning, mild and fabulously bright and cheerful moments have been alternating with short and sharp showers with needle point raindrops getting everywhere in seconds!
It made for a scenic trip across Bodmin Moor first thing anyway!
But the brightness seems to be taking control as those wide open skies are featuring bundles of whiter clouds skipping merrily across the horizons contrasting with that blue that you seem to only ever see in Cornwall.
A fresh westerly wind is pushing the surf in along with that mild air that we miss with those northerly blows but those showers are the price that we pay!
Anyway there’s three to maybe four feet of only lightly chopped surf bouncing into the bay, that deep blue sea being scarred by the brilliant white of foamy whitewater. It does look lovely, if not anywhere near perfect! It’s probably one of those days when you end up having way more fun than you expected!
I’m away for a few days, so no surf report until next week!
Harlyn (2*): 0 to 2 feet
It looks pretty much flat around here at first glance but hang around for more than a minute or two and you’ll see some two feet and bigger sets pushing onto the sand.
The breeze is just a little too westerly to allow it to be crisp and sharp, so it is a little crumbly and bubbly but still fun looking.
The other side has much better surf today but if Harlyn is your thing or you can’t get away then you should have some fun skating across the faces of some of these!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Saturday 20th May 2017
That westerly wind seems to have settled in for a couple of days stay only gradually easing and staring to slowly drift around the compass overnight.
So we’re looking at similar conditions to Friday but maybe just a bit smaller.
A couple to three feet of crumbly stuff should be heading in all day long, maybe becoming a little cleaner through the evening as the wind lightens.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mainly bright but breezy weekend is waiting for us this weekend!
A brisk, mainly westerly wind is forecast for the whole weekend, pushing not much more than a couple to three feet of mixed up and fairly sloppy surf our way throughout.
The main surf spots are going to be the places to go as the sheltered spots won’t be much cleaner or tidier and will probably be close to flat anyway!
So you can sharpen up those reflexes and tone those paddling muscles as you chop-hop through the weekend at those favourite surf spots!
I’m away this weekend, so no surf report until next week but it’s fairly safe to assume that you should be able to enjoy a decent if a bit sloppy and choppy couple to three feet all the way through.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
