At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot.
A duller, greyer and more sullen dawn is only slowly brightening this morning, the breeze a little fresher, the temperature just a little higher.
And the surf is tiny.
Barely a foot or so of sheet glass and curling little waves are whispering ashore, peaking majestically and trying to break crisply in the too high tide.
It may be more glideable as the tide eases out but it is unlikely to be any bigger than knee-high really. And that wind could strengthen, staying offshore but gusting quite harshly by this afternoon.
Still, there are some very pretty and just about rideable waves breaking so it should be worth a wet!
And then there’s always the Padstow Christmas Festival as it pushes into another day of wall-to-wall cooking and eating and drinking and chit chat. Check out www.padstowchristmasfestival.co.uk for what’s on and when!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is pretty much completely flat again this morning. Tiny little tempting ripples are glassily rolling across the high tide bank, three inches of mini-perfection, but there’s nothing rideable.
Other than that, it is a fabulous place to just be, as always, so if you’re in town for the Padstow Christmas Festival (and why wouldn’t you be?) then it would make for a great tranquil moment!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:42 (1.6m) High Tide: 19:32 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 4th December 2016
You are going to need a big old board to get anything out of today, along with a hotline connection to neptune to pick just the prime moment when those tiny little swell lines hit a shallow sandbank. Because they are the only moments when there will be anything like a rideable wave!
There’s likely to be not much more than six inches to a foot of tiny, tiny little waves immaculately peeling into the bay for most of today!
Still there’s always the last day of the Padstow Christmas Festival to enjoy!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
High Pressure continues to dominate all the way through the weekend and so the wind should remain light and offshore, strengthening through Saturday into Sunday.
And so the surf isn’t going to be as big as we might like it to be but then that should be made up for in shape and style and beauty.
Sunday might just end up being titchy, tiny, teeny, weeny though!
Other than that, it looks as though we are in for a fabulous weekend weatherwise, maybe more overcast on Saturday but generally that crisp and fresh winter weather that we didn’t see too much of last winter but have been loving all week long.
And don’t forget that the Padstow Christmas Festival (www.padstowchristmasfestival.co.uk) will be rolling along all weekend with more celebrity chefs than you can shake a wok at cooking up a mighty food storm!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
