At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 3 feet
Ha! It’s small but pumping!
Three feet of curling and smooth faced, walling waves are reeling off that lowtide sandbank, as wide as they are tall, looking like they are about to close out on sections but just managing to keep on peeling away.
The skies are slowly brightening and cheering with wide blue spaces spreading across the far horizon while the wind is relaxing as it blows offshore.
It is looking very promising for a fine day’s surfing anywhere along this raggedy north cornish coast today, so grab your favourite board, a fresh block of wax and head on out there!
And don’t forget the sunblock!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
That brisk blowing north easterly wind is chopping the almost flat sea surface here this morning as the swell lines roll straight past the bay with little or no waves managing to swing in at all.
And so it is that miserable combination of flat and choppy and looks like it will stay that way all day long.
Luckily the other side of the headland is having great surf right now and so that is the place to head for. In fact any west or south west facing break should be clean and fun today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:12 (2.2m) High Tide: 11:50 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 18th July 2017
Hard blowing easterly going south easterly winds are going to be blowing offshore all day long today.
As temperatures rise and storm clouds loom, a couple of feet of looping and spinning little surf should provide some fun surf to keep your cool in!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A day or two of small but fun and clean little surf should start the week nicely, the weather bright enough for spells but not quite the settled gorgeousness of a couple of weeks ago.
So Monday will have a decent couple of feet and bigger of peeling and peaking little waves at pretty much all of our favourite surf breaks scattered along the coast, Tuesday continuing the theme but with that wind strengthening, maybe a little too much by the afternoon.
And watch out for those storm clouds as temperatures rise, causing a lot of overheating!
By midweek the wind will have reverted back to south westerly, blowing in plenty of small and broken up windswell but also cleaning up some of those sheltered more northerly spots, if those waves are blown in and big enough!
So a mixed week of summer awaits with some big surf promised for the end of the week, those winds controlling the wheres and whens, as always!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
