At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
It is a gorgeous start to this almost Spring-like Sunday morning, the air temperature being the only let down, probably courtesy of the light east north easterly breeze taht is chilling its way offshore.
Otherwise, the sky is almost clear, the sun is bright and the birdsong lively. All we need now is some surf.
And if we give it an hour or so there should be a bit of that around too.
Right now the tide is too high and so is hiding a foot or two of clean and shapely, curling little waves. Let the tide drop back a metre or so and we should be able to drag out a glider and slide across some fun ones in that chilly but cheerful sunshine.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It is pretty much flat at Harlyn this morning, the breeze fluttering across the bay just after high tide, lightly crumbling those tiny ripples.
So it’s the other side of the headland again today and there are only small waves over there. But at least it is pretty and clean and very surfable.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:21 (0.7m) High Tide: 18:11 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 30th April 2018
A fresh northerly wind is likely to be frustrating the very small surf today, making for crumbly conditions everywhere along this coastline.
That same wind is probably going to make it feel quite chilly too, especially as the weather might very well be a little dreary to, at least for little while anyway.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Late night accordions are wheezing and those drums are echoing in the streets of Padstow as MayDay fast approaches, that all important weather forecast more watched and scrutinised.
And, it is suddenly looking quite promising for the weather, if not the surf, which could be a bit of a recipe for too much fun!
It now looks as if this MayDay week is going to start out breezily, with a brisk northerly wind chilling the air temperature and not doing anything for the surf either.
By MayDay itself south westerly winds are likely to be breezing across the bays, offshore at Harlyn but with only tiny waves. The wind might just push up enough to justify a longboard play but we’ll have to wait and see on that one.
But the sky should be bright enough and dry enough to make it a pleasure to follow those ‘osses as they jig and revel to the beat and rhythm of a thousand years of tradition.
The morning after the day before is probably going to start slowly, with those onshore winds bringing some dampness first thing, some welcome sunshine not arriving until lunchtime. The four to maybe five feet of surf being no more than a ragtag bundle of north westerly windblown chop.
light breezes and fair weather should cheer up the back half of the week with smaller surf but much lighter breezes.
So, all in all a fairly decent week with enough weather and surf to keep most happy.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
