At 6.15 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
A steady west sou’ westerly wind is blowing mildly onshore this morning, the bright blue sky laced by only a few ribbons of possibly threatening cloud strips.
Three feet of slopped, chopped and junky surf is rumbling ashore this morning, those rich shades of blue and turquoise enticing but the actual wave shapes a little lacking.
We should manage to get a fun session or two in during the day but it’s going to be more interesting to the more agile leaper abouters, using those choppy waves sections as their very own airborne ramps.
The rest of us will just have to sharpen our reflexes (and paddling skills!) by getting out there and having some fun!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
It’s a beautiful start to the day around here this morning as the sun shines brightly over a picture-postcard beach scene filled with turquoise seas and golden sands.
The surf is small, real small but pretty nicely shaped. The steady wind is almost offshore and so holding up those one to two foot waves as they lightly skip across the high tide bank.
Yep, it is small but it looks like fun, especially if you have a longboard handy!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Monday 24th July 2017
A bright and cheery day is going to be kept cool by a blustery north westerly wind again today, the surf only small, a foot or two at best while the wind makes a bit of a mess at our preferred breaks.
Two feet of onshore junk at Constantine and Booby’s is as much as we can expect today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to ensure that we enjoy another week of mediocre surf conditions along this stretch of North Cornwall’s sunny coastlines.
Those onshore winds should continue to push along a rolling three to four feet of bumpy and lumpy swells all week long.
Monday’s fresh north westerly winds are going to slop and chop the two to three feet of broken surf at all of our bays, the bright sunshine making it all a bit more tempting. By Tuesday the wind should have eased to a breeze, still from the north west, still slopping the waves a bit but nowhere as badly as before.
South westerly winds will be blowing steadily by Wednesday, at least allowing Harlyn to offer a cleaner alternative, even though the surf is likely to be only tiny around there!
And then it is likely to be back to westerly winds for the rest of the week, that same three feet or so of bumpy swell continuing to roll our way and at a leat offering up a few possibilities if you’re keen enough!
So, all in all not a bad week to kick the school holidays off with, the groms should be frothing in all those bouncy wave conditions, allowing them to throw airs galore with soft landings for when it goes wrong!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
