At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
Oh it’s a grey and wet and windy one this morning!
A more autumnal westerly wind is blustering into the bays spreading a stinging, driving rain ahead of it, four or five feet of very wintery looking surf being tossed and turned and carelessly windswept.
Harlyn is going to be the place to surf again today.
Harlyn (3*): 3 feet
The rain is driving across the the bay at Harlyn this morning, three feet or so of wind buffeted but fun looking surf standing taller than it should, hollow righthanders occasionally spinning off the Rock.
That surf will become a bit crunchy and snappy as the tide drops back but it should all improve a while lot on this afternoon’s rising tide.
It does look like a typical Harlyn winter’s Saturday surf day, except for those lovely warm water temperatures!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:53 (1.7m) High Tide: 17:50 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 8th August 2021
A five foot swell, brisk westerly winds and the occasional drenching downpour.
That’ll be another soaking Sunday surfday at Harlyn then!
August in Cornwall eh, where else would you rather be………
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another low pressure system is aiming our way for the weekend, bringing fresh onshore winds, plenty of dampness and a decent dollop of chunky surf.
Friday should see some bigger waves finally shaking our surf breaks.
The wind is likely to be blowing hard from the south west making Harlyn our ‘go to’ surf break locally.
In fact Harlyn is probably going to be our main or only option for some clean surf all weekend long, starting out in the ‘biggish’ size range on Friday, reducing to ‘fun’ three feetish size by the start of next week.
It will probably be excessively busy, the combination of south westerly wind and a lumping, thick swell attracting anyone with a surfboard for miles around. So take a little breath of patience and a large measure of tolerance with you if you’re thinking of jumping in!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
