Constantine (4*): 3 feet
It’s a bright and beautiful morning down in the bay, as cold as it gets in these parts but no less gorgeous for that.
The swell has dropped, as expected but there are still majestic peaks sweeping in, three feet and bigger as they loop and peel to shore.
The Point is spinning some turquoise barrels our way and the Reef is tripping up some steep and peeling, walling lefthanders, all turquoise and white, those dolphins (porpoises?) playing shy this morning but the seabirds having a feast.
If you have felt a bit down following those weeks and months of grey and wet north westerlies then today is a day to breath in the sunshine and surf. It really is that good!
Oh, and of course the Cornish Arms are in full flow with their ‘Beer and Mussels’ festival. Ali & Kate are playing at 4.45 – always good!
And this weekend has been good for surf so far with a lot of cold but generally clear weather (see the weekend forecast below (on www.constantinesurf.com))and it is really very cold this Sunday!
So if you are feeling the need or just want a new wetsuit, we do have a good few in stock and many of those are still at massive clearance SALE prices!! But they are starting to thin out!
Mail us at [email protected] or phone us on 01841 520250 to check sizes etc. before trekking out.
Harlyn (0*): 2 feet
A couple of feet of weak and slopped little surf is dribbling in here this morning, the car park frosted over and the beach sand crackling underfoot.
It is cold out there!
Cold but beautiful, except for the surf which is small and junky.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:24 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:14 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 19th March 2018
Small and clean surf should continue to roll in all day long, the wind staying offshore (and cold!), the sun still shining.
You might want to get something to ride that is a little floatier today but those little waves should be immaculately shaped!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A small wave start to the week is soon going to change with new swells bowling our way from Tuesday onwards.
And those bright and beautiful, offshore conditions of the weekend are only slowly changing as we go into this week, the wind backing to the north east through Tuesday and then north westerly as we go into midweek.
The two feet or so of perfectly shaped surf that started the week so pleasantly will gradually build as conditions deteriorate, a chunky four to five feet of onshore blown, lumpy surf rolling in by midweek.
But overall we should be enjoying a mainly bright and breezy week with enough surf to keep most of us happy and the option of a south coast surfari if we want cleaner conditions!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
