At 5.45 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 4 to 5 feet
A hard blowing sou’ wester is shaking the dunes this morning while flinging four feet and bigger of roaring wild surf our way.
As squalls of soaking rain drench the headland, that grey and murky sea is rocking in the wind, bumpy and raggedy swells colliding with the headland and bouncing off the Reef. It’s nice to see some weather and some lumpy swell but it’s probably just a lot of paddling for not much reward here today from a surfing point of view.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A handful of earlybirds are already scavenging a windy three feet or so of Harlyn leftovers this morning.
The wind is scooting across the bay, not quite straight offshore but getting there while the stream is finding some winter flow and shaping a few almost peelers.
The wind is forecast to strengthen through the weekend but it should blow more directly offshore, sharpening and hollowing the thumping swell.
It could be fun on the pushing afternoon tide!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 5th July 2020
Gale force westerly winds are expected too be pushing more lumping swell our way today, throwing up four to six feet of out of control, more wintery surf at the main breaks, three to four feet of crunchier and hollower stuff at the sheltered spots.
A wintery Harlyn Sunday (but without the pub) awaits!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
So the media are bursting into a frenzy of anticipation about the flood of visitors that are supposedly heading for Cornwall this weekend, predicting everything from ‘pitchfork welcomes‘ to ‘saviours of south west livelihoods‘.
But they haven’t checked the weather maps have they!
We’re in for a bit of a blustery and blowy, chilly and damp one this weekend, that same sou’ westerly wind pushing bigger and still lumpy, choppy swells our way all weekend long.
With a four to six foot swell being bounced onto our shores by that wind, Harlyn is going to be our best option for the whole weekend – thank goodness the lifeguards are back on duty over there now too!
So a weekend at Harlyn awaits the surfers with an expected three to four feet of offshore shaped little close-outs to thrill and spill.
It could get busy, so take some patience with you and don’t forget some change for the brand spanking new pay & display parking machines!
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
