At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 6 feet
The air is still this morning, a leaden sky drooping over the bay as a thick and solid five foot swell rolls into the high tide depths of a seven meter plus tide in the early morning haze of an early summer’s day.
There’s dampness in the air but it’s mild and still and, well, all quite pleasant really.
And with the lightest of offshore breezes forecast for the rest of the day and loads of sunshine expected once that high pressure system settles over us, I think that it’s safe to say that we can expect some excellent surf conditions – all day long!
Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
A superhigh tide is absorbing the energy of a smooth and solid little three foot swell as it crests and peaks into Harlyn Bay this morning, the air absolutely still and the low cloud blanket comforting and snuggly.
There should be surf at every single surfbreak along the coast all day long today, bigger and better at many spots but on days like this Harlyn still has its own magic to attract!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:55 (0.7m) High Tide: 19:48 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 29th May 2021
It’s unusual for classic surf conditions to coincide with a national Bank Holiday weekend but today we can expect a light offshore breeze to be hollowing and holding a very smooth three feet of thick and solid swell beneath plenty of warm and shiny, clear skied sunshine.
Wax ’em up, slather on the sunscreen and – enjoy!
Surf Conditions for the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend
High pressure is comfying itself as it snuggles over the British Isles for this Spring Bank Holiday weekend and with a tightly packed little low pressure system drifting casually by way out in the Atlantic, I think that it is quite safe to expect some fabulous conditions over the next several days.
Light offshore breezes are predicted for the whole weekend with the skies clearing and the sun shining more and more as we go along. Throw in that thick and punchy, well travelled and smooth groundswell and we have the perfect setup for a classic holiday weekend of sun and surf.
All of our favourite surf breaks should be providing classic conditions, the big spring tides pulling the swell back on the drop and pushing the surf in more as it rises, creating swirling rip currents all the time. That’s great for those guys who have experience and can use those currents to get past the broken waves but could easily catch out the less experienced amongst us. So it is always worth just checking with the lifeguards if you’re unsure – they’re all quite approachable really and they do know how to keep you safe.
For everyone else – #gosurfnow it doesn’t often get this good!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great Spring Bank Holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
