At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
That wind seems to have calmed at last, a lighter more westerly breeze allowing the air temperature to rise to a balmy 5 deg C or so on an otherwise overcast and sunless, silver morning.
The surf isn’t looking too bad with a couple to three feet of lazy and fairly wishy washy little swell tumbling into the bay. It is still all sloppy and crumbly this morning but it’s not that blown out and hideous mess that we have been seeing for weeks. And there is just the slightest chance that the breeze will whisper offshore through id-afternoon!
At least the water temperature is still kind of okay at about 13/14 deg C.
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
A foot or two of still sloppy and lumpy little waves are crumbling ashore her this morning, the water looking colder than it probably is, the air still feeling too cold.
It’s small and sloppy and crumbly and hesitant but if you’re crying out to surf Harlyn today then you’ll probably catch a little bumpy one or two.
But the other side is better!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 10th December 2017
Here we go again!
Gusting gale force winds are going to test your hatch battening skills again today while blowing some bigger waves our way.
We can expect ten foot plus surf in howling onshore conditions, grey skies and the threat of some wintery, wintery weather.
Right, where’s my passport?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another windswept, damp and freezing cold few days are beckoning as Storm Caroline swings north over Scotland but sweeps her winds all the way down here.
The surf is likely to be completely out of control, a wild and windblown mess of big enough but broken up surf to close the week.
But by Saturday we might just be enjoying some of that really very cold but winter bright and cheery weather, the wind easing to a breeze as it backs to the north east, cold but offshore. That should allow the couple to three feet of fairly close together little surf to at least beak with some shape to tempt you in for some better than expected sessions.
A greyer Sunday will see the wind gusting in from the south, maybe just about about drifting to the south east. That will clean up the very small, one to two feet of otherwise weak surf, maybe just making it tempting enough to drag you out for a glide or two in between feasting yourself at the Padstow Christmas Festival where there will be more celebrity chefs cooking up a storm than you can shake a spatula at!
So, all in all it’s promising to be a fun weekend with great food loads of entertainment and a few waves to beckon you in!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
