And it is yet another gorgeous morning on the north Cornish coast this morning, that pale blue sky stretching far while the sunburst dawn is accompanied by a fairly gentle birdsong.
The surf is small, immaculately shaped with the lightest of offshores softly folding those looping little waves. It is longboard heaven right now, hip high gliders spinning across the beach, front-lit in gold and pink as that sun stretches itself across the sand.
Yep, it is pretty fabulous again! A day of only small surf but with the lightest of south easterly breezes and loads of sunshine.
Don’t forget the sunblock (and wax!)!

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

It is flat around here again this morning, the odd little edge-side ripple snapping across the sand but nothing to ride a surfboard on.
It is quite beautiful but there ain’t no surf here today!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 9th August 2014

South westerly winds should assist some little groundswell action, pushing through a decent couple of feet of more solid stuff than we have seen for quite a while.
A couple to three feet of bumpy and a bit sloppy stuff at our main surf breaks should keep us occupied and there is always the chance that we might see the start of that new swell that is on its way to us.
Maybe.
The weather could be a bit broody for a while through the morning but maybe not so bad as the forecasts are making out again.
Yep, we should see some half decent surf today along with some alright weather for most of the day.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

As the Boardmasters weekend gets into its stride, UK surfers are watching the pressure charts with some interest, in particular the track that tropical storm Bertha has chosen to take.
We should get surf this weekend and, if we’re just a little lucky, we could get some really good surf this weekend!
Saturday is likely to be another bright enough and cheery enough day with a building swell made bumpy at the main surf breaks by a steady west south westerly wind.
By Saturday’s evening high tide we should be enjoying some half decent but maybe quite choppy three foot plus surf.
And by Sunday we are all hoping that some pumping, powerful surf will be washing our way!
A solid five foot plus swell should hopefully be rolling over those settled sandbanks, messed up by some fresh westerly winds maybe but hopefully big enough to swing into those more sheltered breaks.
And that should roll well into the start of the week. After such a long quiet spell this period of hopefully pumping surf should get everyone excited! Let’s hope that it lasts a while!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
