Constantine (3*): 3 feet
at 6.20 a.m.
A dreary drizzle is surrounding us this morning, the sky grey, the sea grey and the air grey. There seems to be little separation between land, sea and air in this morning’s thick Cornish mizzle.
There is some surf; a rolling three feet or so, maybe just a bit bigger on the sets, those grey and bumpy lines throwing whiter stretches of broken water to separate the elements. The wind is light and southerly, mild and damp, just strong enough to shake the sodden bushes and trees and put that inevitable bump onto those otherwise quite organised little waves.
But don’t despair, it will all clear soon enough. Lunchtime should present a different world, one of brightness and cheer, the sun eventually breaking through, the wind dropping (and easing gradually around the compass too) and the swell building.
By mid afternoon things should be much, much better!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
It is a little more sheltered around here this morning, the surf tiny, as you would expect but glassy and smart and sharp. The tide is still low even though it is probably half way in, so you would expect there to be a little increase in size yet.
It’s a cleaner option on this grey, grey morning, knee to hip high walls as opposed to those shoulder high slopsters of the other side!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:17 (2.0m) High Tide: 09:55 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 2nd Septemebr 2014
As summer returns this Autumn day we should be enjoying some very pleasant three to four foot surf under clear and bright skies with light, light offshore breezes.
Well it does look that way!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As Autumn gradually starts to caress our golden beaches and turquoise bays, the feel of summer might just revisit for a few days.
Monday is likely to be a bit of a slow starter, a little gloom and dreariness to start the day, the wind onshore and the surf not all that. But soon enough a new swell should be showing itself just as a welcome slice of bright and cheery late summer (or early Autumn) sunshine puts in an appearance.
By late evening the surf and weather could be starting to get really good, the breeze fighting its way to offshore, the swell pushing into the four foot range.
And then the delicate dance of wind and swell will take us through the rest of the entire week all under clear and bright, sunshiny skies.
The swell is likely to weaken to a still very decent couple of feet by midweek, the breeze staying offshore and folding those waves into hollow little things.
And that looks to be the way of it for a good while! A steady, rolling swell, light offshores and plenty of sunshine. Any holiday time left?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
