At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The rhythmic pitter patter of steadily falling rain is making for a cosy start to the day, the sky as dark as Mordor, the south easterly breeze light and steady, straight offshore.
A handful of earlybirds are out already and gliding across the faces of small but smooth and peeling little waves, some of those rides going on forever.
It’s one of those snuggly, damp and peaceful mornings down in the bay if you fancy gliding a few little ones on a longboard in the rain?
Harlyn (0*): Flat
All’s quiet at Harlyn this morning, the only noise being that tap, tap, tap of steady rainfall. The sea is magnificently turquoise while the sky is a layered darkness, the golden sand glowing in the wet.
It is beautiful – but there’s no surf here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:15 (2.6m) High Tide: 12:49 (5.5m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 15th June 2020
Another damp day with clean offshore breezes and only tiny waves again. It promises to be an inauspicious day on which to gradually re-open the shop but at least its’ a move back to a new kind of normality perhaps?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As we fumble about trying to smoothly re-open the shop we can look forward to a mixed week of showers and cloud with mild mid-teens temperatures, mainly offshore breezes and only small surf.
That low pressure system seems to have parked over us for a while, producing a pulsing stream of showers as we start the new week, the breeze continuing steadily from the south east, meeting the same one to two feet of curling and peeling but very small surf.
The breeze will swing onshore, more northerly and north westerly as we go into midweek, maybe making that still small surf a little less attractive. And then the offshores will return to end the week but that might very well flatten the already small swell.
So a lazy week for a restart, which will end up probably not being such a bad thing, as long as we return to brightness soon enough.
Stay safe, stay happy and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
We feel that we can now provide a safe service at Constantine Bay Surf Store or by mail order to all of our customers, adhering to social distancing advice and using the very best cleaning and disinfecting agents.
We carry enough hire stock to allow for a 72 hour ‘quarantine’ of previously hired items following a thorough wash-through of each hire item in an enzyme based cleaner. Wipes and wash are available to our customers and we will be restricting the number of customers within Constantine Bay Surf Store at any one time.
New wetsuits may be taken away to try in the comfort of your home, any returns again being ‘quarantined’ for 72 hours before being re-displayed.
Since our cosy shop is too small to offer social distancing compliance for more than one or two customers at a time, we will strictly control the number of customers entering at any one time. Please bear with us on this, we cannot yet think of an alternative!
Constantine Bay Surf Store is now simply screened and will continually be cleaned and disinfected on an ongoing basis, all pay points wiped after each transaction.
An outdoors pay point will be available when weather allows.
If you require anything else at all during this time please email us at [email protected] or telphone 01841 520250.
