At 8.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 6 feet
A frisky sou’ wester is blowing into the bay this morning but that’s just a little tickle ahead of the expected rage of Storm Brendan which is heading our way for later!
In the meantime the surf is so-so, about four feet but with the occasional mountainous set.
And it is still a choppy and lumpy blown out mess of waves, of little interest to anyone looking for a surf today.
Harlyn (4*): 2 to 4 feet
Harlyn is having a real identity crisis this morning, the wind is gusting offshore smoothing and hollowing the steady two to three feet of inviting surf that is rolling in, promising an appealing and attractive, fun kind of session. But then those big sets, those outriders from Storm Brendan, are growling into the bay full of raw power and pent up energy.
Those set waves are a long way apart but they’re big and they’re closing out the bay when they do pour through!
This afternoon’s tide is likely to bump the size up a long way while storm force winds are going to be hollowing those waves into deep pits of raw and board snapping energy.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:33 (0.9m) High Tide: 19:26 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 14th January 2020
Howling sou’ westerly storms are going to be pushing huge surf onto the Cornish coast today.
Unless you know, don’t go!
Those few will be tackling mountains of water at the spots that hold these conditions but you’ll need to be fully on your ‘A’ game to survive today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Gale to storm force winds are going to blast us into the start of this week with those hard blowing gusts coming from the south west.
At least that allows us the potential option of Harlyn as a surf venue but even Harlyn is likely to be big to really very big in size. Throw in that strong offshore effect there and you can tell that those waves are likely to be huge, cavernous and heavy!
Those big and windswept waves will last well into the week, the wind maybe then starting to back offshore for a few hours at our main breaks as the storm passes onwards by Thursday morning ish.
And of course by week’s end that wind will be chilling things down as it whistles down the coastline from the North, nor’ west.
So, we’ll be seeing plenty of surf this week, probably a bit too much for most people and that’s okay, we can usually find somewhere more suitable to our skill levels with a little bit of looking around!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
