At 8.10 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
Well the forecasters got it right; the wind is howling down from the north west, bringing cold, cold weather, laced with a sting of sleet and hail.
The surf is a blown out mess of drunken eight foot waves marching wildly shoreward.
You really don’t want to be going anywhere near it today!
So the south coast beckons with the promise of hollowness and chilly barrels, while the Padstow Christmas Festival competes with the temptation of tasty morsels, good company and flowing beers and wines.
Hmmm, maybe the one followed by the other!
Harlyn (0*): 4 feet
The wind is screeching into the bay this morning pushing and heaving four to six feet of battered windswell with it. The hail storms are pitting the sand while the sleet is eye stinging and the wind biting.
There’s nothing to surf on, not here, not today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:07 (1.4m) High Tide: 08:33 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 9th December 2017
It might be dull and overcast and cold but the wind should have dropped and it might even switch offshore by the afternoon!
Southerly going south easterly breezes might just tempt you in to ride those clean and sparkling but maybe really small waves.
One to two feet of glassy little gliders in the afternoon, followed by a mosey on into Padstow for the Christmas Festival of fabulous food and good company.
it could just be a fun day today!
And we have decided to have another 20% to 50% OFF Weekend Sale on the go too!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another windswept, damp and freezing cold few days are beckoning as Storm Caroline swings north over Scotland but sweeps her winds all the way down here.
The surf is likely to be completely out of control, a wild and windblown mess of big enough but broken up surf to close the week.
But by Saturday we might just be enjoying some of that really very cold but winter bright and cheery weather, the wind easing to a breeze as it backs to the north east, cold but offshore. That should allow the couple to three feet of fairly close together little surf to at least beak with some shape to tempt you in for some better than expected sessions.
A greyer Sunday will see the wind gusting in from the south, maybe just about about drifting to the south east. That will clean up the very small, one to two feet of otherwise weak surf, maybe just making it tempting enough to drag you out for a glide or two in between feasting yourself at the Padstow Christmas Festival where there will be more celebrity chefs cooking up a storm than you can shake a spatula at!
So, all in all it’s promising to be a fun weekend with great food loads of entertainment and a few waves to beckon you in!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
