At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 4 to 6 feet
This lazy Sunday morning, the always vague one stuck between Christmas and New Year, lies under a blanket of Silver sky as a steady breeze rattles its way up the county, a drier south easterly, breezing offshore.
And so the still chunky four to six feet of surf is pitching forward, tilting against that breeze and throwing some sizeable peaks into the bay. The tide is too high and the swell is too thick to allow for much more than a strenuous paddle but once again, it’s worth remembering that there are a whole lot of Pointbreaks and Reefbreaks and other more size friendly surf spots scattered up and down the coast that will be beckoning.
Or there’s always Harlyn………
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
More smooth faced and peaking (for Harlyn!) swells are looping across the hard sand as the tide drops out at Harlyn this morning. Some thick four foot plus barrels are screaming off the Rock, some of the bigger sets shutting down across the entire bay.
There’s a gap and a bit between sets but that’s okay, it allows plenty of time to shuffle paddle the short hop to the lineup win plenty of time to get another one.
There’ not much that beats a Sunday surf and social at Harlyn when there’s a decent swell and offshore breezes!
Well, apart from that Point break up the coast and around the corner that is!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:38 (1.5m) High Tide: 19:31 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 30th December 2019
The south south easterly breeze will continue to breeze its way to meet that still grunty and solid for foot swell.
You can expect excellent surf conditions everywhere along the north Cornish coast all day long today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The light offshores and thick, solid swell of the start of the week will soon be replaced by a return to gusting north westerlies, rain and windblown stormswells by the end of the week.
But to celebrate the end of yet another decade of wave riding, the coast of Cornwall and Devon will be enjoying plenty of solid groundswells, groomed nicely by light offshore breezes.
Monday’s gusting south south easterlies will gradually give way to calmer and gentler easterlies for New Year’s Eve, as the swell gradually settles to something smoother and more relaxing.
We can expect three to four feet of hollow and peeling surf to say goodbye to 2019 with a fun two to three feet of pretty little surf welcoming in 2020.
Then a gusting south westerly will return by Thursday blowing hard and wet while it agitates a new and thick swell into Harlyn.
But that is not until next year, so in the meantime we can enjoy these clean and fun conditions for a few days yet!
Have a fabulous New Year, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
