Constantine (2*): 1 ft
at 6.20 a.m.
It’s a calm and peaceful, quiet morning this morning with no wind, an aquamarine sea and that silver streaked sky.
There is some really very small surf gracefully sliding into the bay, a foot on the peaks, all shimmering and tempting but still small.
A longboard session beckons but timing is going to be key.
Those shallow sandbanks will trip a few waves up, creating a fun session if you’re there for it but as soon the tide moves into deeper water then it will be all but flat.
These gentle offshores are forecast to stay all day and this little swell should not disappear completely, so if you have the time and the right board then you should be able to get a few fun ones with a bit of planning.
And thanks for all your comments regarding our re-vamped site and the images we are running each day. It’s obviously a work in progress but we’re getting there! Thanks to Mark at MiHi Digital too, a guiding hand when others had let us down. Here’s another view of this morning’s beach scene for you:
We have now received our new stock of Coastees Ts, depicting our local bays as well as receiving our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken by Cheyne and put together by those fine artisans at Pukas in Spain (they’re the guys that make boards for Mr Gabriel Medina) and they’re all on the rails now!
Actually we have loads of new stuff hanging on the rails ready for this Summer’s visitors:
Summer wetsuits from O’Neill, Xcel and Alder are hanging alongside surf accessories from FCS and O&E while Reef flip flops are sat next to Vans beach and skate shoes. The newly launched Vissla range of clothes are alongside rails of Brixton Mfg, Captain Fin Co, Reef, Lost, Coastees and the newly inPassenger range as well as our our own Shop logo’d garments.
We have sunglasses from Bolle, Ray Ban and now the brand new dBlanc (and how great are they!) as well as EightyEight and Vision.
Time for a new board for Summer?
Then take your pick from our wide range of boards. We have longboards, short board, fun boards, soft boards, finless boards and all sorts! Al Merrick, Haydenshapes, Meyerhoffer, Sol Life, …Lost, Beach Beat, Hawaiian Soul and Webber, we should have something to suit!
And if we haven’t got it, we can get it!
So, drop in on us this week if you’re around the area!!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s as flat as can be again around here this morning. A great place to launch a SUP or Kayak, or whatever but not the place to go for a surf. And that’s probably going to be the way of it for a while yet!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:19 (1.5m) High Tide: 20:16 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 1st July 2014
As long as the wind doesn’t increase too much, we might have some fun surf!
There should be a half decent couple to three feet or hopefully more of clean swell rolling in today, being confronted by a brisk easterly, offshore breeze. And that offshore should blow steadily all day long.
Yep, it could be a very, very pleasant day for surfers on the cornish coast!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A calm week is waiting for us as low pressure and high pressure systems drift around the north atlantic a little casually, the highs being a bit low and those lows being a little high. And so it’s all a bit samey, a weak little swell running onto the coastline, the winds light and not helpful to it but prettying those little waves up as they arrive at our beaches.
But there is a much more definite weather system approaching as we go into midweek, a fairly deep low pressure system driving with some purpose across from the west. It is a long way up to the north but we should still see some residual swell from it by midweek nevertheless.
Unless you want a trip north of the border? That could be fun, midge heaven but with plenty of decent surf for your troubles?
Until then it looks like the surf is going to be small and weak back here, pretty but borderline rideable as we go into the start of July. But don’t write the week off, we should be enjoying some very pleasant, cleans and sparkling surf by midweek or, if we are only half lucky, even sooner than that!
It could very well end up being a week of two halves, starting out gently but livening up fairly suddenly as we go into the back half!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
