At 6.45 a.m:  

Constantine (3*):  2 feet  

RE-OPENING TODAY!  10 till 2

Sharp sunlight from a bright and cheery sunrise is lighting up small but delicious little waves as they peak and peel their way onto the sandbars and rocky outcrops in the bay this morning.
The breeze is light and still offshore, a soft south easterly just helping to smooth those glassy little waves as the tide eases its way to low.
It’s a very pleasant morning to re-open after weeks of silence in our little store. So if you are drifting around why not drop in on us for a socially distanced natter! We should be there from 10 till 2 to see how things roll.  

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat  

There’s not a wave to be seen at Harlyn this morning but the sea is clear, the sky is bright, the beach is empty and it is all just glorious.
Fancy a swim?   

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  20:24  (2.5m)              High Tide:  13:58  (5.6m)

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 16th June 2020 

Not much should change today although we might just see a few more showers lingering through the morning. The wind is likely to shift to the north for a while too, maybe making it feel just a bit chillier.
With not much more than a foot or so of swell expected it’s going to be a case of timing it all today, if you pick just the right place at just the right time then you should find a few to glide across. The rest of us might just get a little frustrated as we goose chase phantom wavelets along the coast!  

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

As we fumble about trying to smoothly re-open the shop we can look forward to a mixed week of showers and cloud with mild mid-teens temperatures, mainly offshore breezes and only small surf.
That low pressure system seems to have parked over us for a while, producing a pulsing stream of showers as we start the new week, the breeze continuing steadily from the south east, meeting the same one to two feet of curling and peeling but very small surf.
The breeze will swing onshore, more northerly and north westerly as we go into midweek, maybe making that still small surf a little less attractive. And then the offshores will return to end the week but that might very well flatten the already small swell.
So a lazy week for a restart, which will end up probably not being such a bad thing, as long as we return to brightness soon enough.
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!  

RE-OPENING TODAY 10 till 2!!

We feel that we can now provide a safe service at Constantine Bay Surf Store to all of our customers, adhering to social distancing advice and using the very best cleaning and disinfecting agents.
We carry enough hire stock to allow for a 72 hour ‘quarantine’ of previously hired items following a thorough wash-through of each hire item in an enzyme based cleaner. Wipes and wash are available to our customers and we will be restricting the number of customers within Constantine Bay Surf Store at any one time.
New wetsuits may be taken away to try in the comfort of your home, any returns again being ‘quarantined’ for 72 hours before being re-displayed.
Since our cosy shop is too small to offer social distancing compliance for more than one or two customers at a time, we will strictly control the number of customers entering at any one time. Please bear with us on this, we cannot yet think of an alternative!
Constantine Bay Surf Store is now simply screened and will continually be cleaned and disinfected on an ongoing basis, all pay points wiped after each transaction.
An outdoors pay point will be available when weather allows.
If you require anything else at all during this time please email us at des@constantinesurf.com or telphone 01841 520250.
