At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s a lovely Saturday morning on this little stretch of the rugged coastline that is North Cornwall, the sky is that milky pale blue, the sun is happily beaming down on us and the air is almost still.
Almost still but not quite.
A superlight breeze is drifting in from the west sou’ west and it is just strong enough to bump and lump the three feet or so of crumbling, deep blue surf.
It is okay though, a little lumpy, a little bumpy but very rideable and very okay.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
Some real small but smooth waves are managing to find their way all around the headland and finally into Harlyn this morning, the lightest of offshore breezes keeping those little waves all glassy and and snappy.
It is tiny here this morning but it is rideable if you have some patience.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:09 (1.8m) High Tide: 09:48 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 16th September 2018
A gradually calming south westerly wind is likely to be jostling a lumpy four foot swell our way today, throwing some lumpy waves into the main bays but managing to swing a few smaller but cleaner ones around the headland and into Harlyn.
So four feet of thick and lumpy Constantine versus a couple of fete of smooth and clean Harlyn?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Harlyn might just be vying for our attention this weekend with south westerly winds being forecast and a three foot plus swell eventually building.
So Saturday might just see some really small but glassy and clean conditions at Harlyn, competing with the lure of three feet or so of bumpy and lumpy Constantine surf.
The sun should be making it all look that little bit more attractive too, so maybe that paddle through onshore bumped waves on this side of the headland might just win out over the tiny but sharper conditions at Harlyn.
The wind is likely to steady out by Sunday, a fresh blow from the south west all day long. And the swell is likely to have doubled in size too, definitely pointing the way to Harlyn for some three foot, dredgy and hollow barrels at low tide.
And then we might just see some offshore wind for Monday but that is a bit too far ahead to get excited about just yet.
In the meantime there looks like plenty of surf to be ridden with some pleasant enough weather to enjoy first.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
