At 7.45 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
It feels mild on this otherwise murky and mizzly old Sunday morning, the wind still fussing its way in from the south west, the sky still wondering whether to bother with daylight and the four to five feet of surf still blown out.
It looks and feels like perfect conditions for a cosy Sunday morning surf over at small Harlyn or a lazy Sunday morning enjoying cosy time.
It is always nice to have a choice though, isn’t it!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
The wind is blustering offshore at Harlyn again this morning, the sky grey and salty as the sea, the wind mild but damp, the surf smaller but a little sharper and a little hollower too.
Yep, it has that lazy Sunday morning vibe in bucketfuls and is probably going to stay that way all day long!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:59 (1.9m) High Tide: 13:15 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 3rd December 2018
Those west south westerly winds are continuing to blow our way, pushing another big lump of swell our way today too.
The main surf breaks are going to be big, bad and blown to pieces while the sheltered spots will be purring and preening, deceptively hollow and heavy.
Yep, it’s going to be Harlyn again today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A daisy chain of low pressure systems are queuing up in the Atlantic like a drunken railway timetable, as soon as one moves over us another arrives to spin past or mow us down or hang around for a day or two.
So make the most of Tuesday seems to be the message that can change.
After another blowy start to the week with big swells being driven by west south westerly winds all the way through Monday, the wind will drop to a breeze and back all the way around to South Easterly, straight offshore.
And so we should be seeing some still big or even maybe huge surf but being groomed and smoothed into something quite special.
In reality the size is probably going to drop quickly but there should still be some big enough surf exploding all the way along the coast.
And then by Wednesday we will be back to those blustering onshores, starting out South westerly through midweek, gradually veering westerly and then north westerly by week’s end.
So, locally Harlyn is going to be shining for most of the week only reluctantly giving up the fight against the northerlies through the end of the week.
And the South Coast should be fun than anyway.
So, plenty of surf, plenty of weather and very few people around as we all start to get excited about the Padstow Christmas Festival, starting next weekend. Ooh, my tastebuds are quivering already!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
