At 7.50 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
The wind continues to howl and scream into the bays on this slightly brighter Sunday morning, the odd rain squall still lashing across the sand.
That wind has drifted just a little to the south west this morning adding maybe a degree or two to the air temperature but otherwise there’s not much change going on.
It should all be just a little brighter, just a little milder and just a little drier but that surf is still big and blown out, six to eight feet plus of windblown junk.
Harlyn (3*): 4 to 6 feet
Four to five to six feet of thick and lumpy surf is bumping its way into high tide Harlyn this morning, the wind blustering across from the west south west.
That wind is a little too strong really but there should be some thick and hollow, crunchy waves unfolding onto the sand as the tide eases its way out.
And you know what Harlyn is like in these conditions – nine out of ten of those waves just shut down all the way across the bay. But those occasional tenth ones can be screamers!
As long as you don’t miss them!

Surf Forecast for Monday 16th December 2019
Oooh, that wind should back off at last today!
And we might even see some gentle winter sunshine too!
And the breeze is forecast to blow offshore from the south east through the morning. That could just make the surf really, really, very good!
We could just be enjoying some big and clean, hollow surf at all of our main surf breaks, all day long!
So, do you fancy some six to eight foot barrels then?
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After enduring a seemingly never ending series of storms and screaming winds we are looking at a much calmer week ahead.
Lighter breezes should start the week, those big leftover storm swells only gradually subsiding. With six to eight foot barrels spinning along the coasts of Cornwall we are going to be spoiled for choices of places to surf through Monday, the swell only gradually dropping through Tuesday but cleaning up and smoothing all the time.
By midweek brisk offshore, south easterly winds will be bullying the swells back from shore but we should still be able to find plenty of small to medium size surf to ride, especially down beneath those headlands and behind rocky outcrops.
And then a new and solid, big swell is expected to arrive for the back half of the week.
I hope you have done your Christmas shopping because this week could be a special one for surf, you might not want too many distractions to get in the way of enjoying those fresh and curling spinning waves all week long!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
