At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 6 feet
A bit of a breezy, wet and overcast one is trying to dampen our enthusiasm this morning but that breeze is offshore, the tide is on the rise and the surf is pumping!
A decent three to four foot groundswell is spinning its way ashore, moulded and folded by a steady south easterly, offshore wind, those overhead sets looping onto the Reef and peaking across the Point. The Trevone Trio are out on the point, skating and sliding across those reeling peaks and making it look like a whole lot of fun!
But I’d get on it as quick as you like, that wind is going to back westerly and then probably north westerly before you know it (well, probably by lunchtime)!
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 3 feet
A decent couple of feet of smooth and steady swell is managing to swing around and find its way in here this morning as well.
Harlyn is doing its usual thing of dumping down and closing out but every now and again the odd one is managing to zip off into the distance.
But the other side is just so good this morning, there are some screechers breaking over there right now!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:22 (0.9m) High Tide: 08:59 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for May Day 2017
A big and lumping, six foot plus swell is expected to be lumbering our way on this May Day, all pushed and pulled by a damp and blustery north westerly blow.
Unless you are keen on a drive to the far coast you can celebrate May Day free of the worry of missing any decent surf today!
Have a great May Day!

Surf Conditions for May Day week
After a windswept and damp start to the week, we will be welcoming back those north easterly winds to blow their chill air offshore in some brighter weather.
A thick and lumping swell is expected to roll our way through May Day Monday, six feet and bigger of windblown and raggedy swells will be battering their way into our bays and coves, the wind blowing enough rain in to try and dampen the Padstow celebrations. But May Day is bigger than that and it should end up being okay weatherwise.
By Tuesday the wind should have eased and backed to the north east, putting a bit more shape in the two to three feet of fun surf.
By midweek the swell should have built, the wind is likely to have settled offshore from the north east and east and the weather should have settled too.
yep, it is looking very good for most of next week with decent waves expected all the way through!
Have a great May Day, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
