At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A lively south westerly wind is fussing its way into the bay this morning, sweeping the sky clear of cloud while keeping temperatures down. And so the surf is a jumbled mess of waves again with only a couple to three feet of broken up and chopped little surf stumbling onto the beach.
That should increase in size on this afternoon’s rushing tide but the wind will continue to make a mess of it all.
I won’t mention the rain that is expected later.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
The wind is gusting almost straight offshore at a brightly sunlit Harlyn this morning, the sea looking refreshing and sparkling but that wind offering a chill bite to the occasional early morning dipster.
Right now the waves are tiny, a foot or maybe occasionally two are teasing and tempting but that same wind should push a growing swell onto our coast throughout the day so it should be well worth checking back later, this afternoon’s tide promising some small but very pleasant, snappy little surf.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:59 (1.5m) High Tide: 16:54 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 4th July 2020
South westerly winds will continue to blow hard today, sweeping some rain and a lot of cloud all along the coast.
A thick and lumpy swell is likely to be crashing ashore in the gloom, all ragged and jagged at our main surf breaks. But Harlyn should come to the rescue with a half decent three to four feet of offshore wind hollowed and crashing boomers.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
So the media are bursting into a frenzy of anticipation about the flood of visitors that are supposedly heading for Cornwall this weekend, predicting everything from ‘pitchfork welcomes‘ to ‘saviours of south west livelihoods‘.
But they haven’t checked the weather maps have they!
We’re in for a bit of a blustery and blowy, chilly and damp one this weekend, that same sou’ westerly wind pushing bigger and still lumpy, choppy swells our way all weekend long.
With a four to six foot swell being bounced onto our shores by that wind, Harlyn is going to be our best option for the whole weekend – thank goodness the lifeguards are back on duty over there now too!
So a weekend at Harlyn awaits the surfers with an expected three to four feet of offshore shaped little close-outs to thrill and spill.
It could get busy, so take some patience with you and don’t forget some change for the brand spanking new pay & display parking machines!
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
