Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
at 7.05 a.m.
Our hearts go out to all of those connected with yesterday’s tragedy at Mawgan Porth.
Another grey and threatening sky is covering us this morning, a canopy of dullness stretching from one horizon to the other, a brisk southerly wind pushing along the coastline, almost offshore. But not quite.
The surf is a decent three feet or so with the very occasional set bursting through bigger than that. But it is all bouncy and twitchy, those waves often backing off before leaping into bowling, spitting and grinding little sections. It looks like hard work out there, not that big, well not like that but just unpredictable and fidgety.
Things might improve as the tide drops but it will still be a bit of work.
Harlyn is likely to be the favoured option for most, so let’s have a little look over there….
We have just received our main delivery of O’Neill winter wetsuits and how gorgeous are they! So, if you’re looking to be warm and cosy this winter then drop in on us, we will probably have something to your liking!
By the way, don’t forget that we are clearing out loads of summer wetsuits. We have rails of them from generally around 30, 40, and even 50% off, starting from £50.
That’s Xcel, O’Neill and Alder with only one or two quikky suits left.
So, if you’re around the area this week, it might just be worth having a little look-see!
And finally, remember we were saying that Matt Biolos was in Europe doing a few boards and we took a couple of custom orders (which incidentally are en route to our little shop right now!)? Well, check these beauties out, they’re the leftovers, the unchosen ones, the last of a beautiful batch:
And so they’re available right now (well, ‘right now’ plus the time for the stagecoach to wander up from Spain!)!

Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple of feet of offshore wind blown surf is shadowing onto that high tide bank that is out there right now.
It’s fat and lazy looking at just about full high tide but that will change soon enough as the tide eases out and the break becomes shallower.
I would think that it should be a really very pleasant two to three feet of clean and fun surf within a couple of hours, dropping in size with the tide, only a little, before strengthening a little on this afternoon’s tide again.
The weather should brighten by lunchtime too and that always makes it all look better.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:29 (1.3m) High Tide: 19:21 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 28th October 2014
Another very similar day of surf lies waiting for us, three feet and bumpy and lumpy again at our main surf breaks, a couple of feet and much cleaner and more organised at our sheltered spots.
The wind is likely to continue to blow from the south, twitching from side to on to offshore back and fore through the day. But overall, it is going to be that old decision between bigger and bumpier west facing breaks versus smaller but cleaner and more organised sheltered spots (Harlyn!).
It should be bright and cheerful all day today too!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
These current lacklustre conditions are likely to accompany us into the main half term school holiday week, the weather mild enough, a little overcast, a bit breezy but with plenty of mixed up surf, at least to start with.
Monday should reveal more of the same, our bodyclocks adjusting to GMT again as that same three footish swell rolls in accompanied by quite a blowy southerly wind. Small Harlyn crispness is probably going to be the favourite of most locally. Some surf breaks further away are probably going to be a bit better if you fancy the journey though.
By Tuesday the wind should ease a little as so to will that swell. In these conditions the wind and waves are completely tied to each other. We aren’t having one without the other, not until another deep depression parks itself out in the Atlantic!
That should start happening by midweek. Not a big depression or anything but as that massive low that generated all that swell the last week or two and has attracted all the guys up to Scotland gradually slips away, another lighter low pressure system is slowly wandering across the north atlantic. That should push a little bit of proper swell our way again for later in the week and into the weekend.
By midweek we might just be seeing small but offshore groomed fun surf at our main surf breaks, staying that way through the back half of the week before bumping up for the weekend.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
