At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 to 4 feet
A snug and cozy, low viz kind of day is wrapping us in dampness this morning with a proper Cornish mizzle settling over the headland, a blanket of grey wetness surrounding us.
Three to maybe just a big bigger than three feet of lightly slopped and chopped, bumpy and lazy looking surf is wandering into the bay.
It’s not that attractive nor inspiring yet but there are some junky peaks stumbling around out there.
It is likely to brighten up later and the south westerly wind should relax too but it will most likely still stay sloppy and choppy really.
Let’s see if there’s enough surf getting into Harlyn……
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or just about two of hesitant little waves can be seen tumbling their way through the mizzle and murk onto the high tide sandbank.
Those waves are small but they should build in size as the day goes on and this south westerly wind looks set for all day.
But give it a few hours and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the skies clear, the wind ease and the swell to build.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:26 (1.4m) High Tide: 20:19 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th October 2017
That south westerly wind is likely to re-strengthen today, pushing in a rolling and tumbling, thicker swell.
We should be seeing some six foot and bigger swells at the main breaks, all slopped and chopped by that wind with three to four feet of much cleaner (and hollower!) surf getting into Harlyn.
It should be fun!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Once we have shaken these storms off then we should be left alone to enjoy what is developing into a very pleasant week ahead!
But first we have to endure the left over winds and swells of the weekend’s blow through. The week will start with a more typical Autumn south westerly wind taking control.
A three to four foot swell is likely to be shepherded into Harlyn, to meet that same supporting wind head on. By Tuesday that wind will have strengthened pushing in more swell while at the same time hollowing out those thick and warpy Harlyn waves.
So a blustery start to the school half term week will only gradually ease off, the wind dying away completely by midweek, hopefully sliding offshore for the back half of the week.
It could very definitely be a week of two distinct halves, the back half of the week finally delivering some clean, fun and bright surf conditions!
But we have a few days of breeziness to endure before then!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
