At 5.50 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 8 feet
The sun is lazily pushing its way through the early dawn haze of a promising summer’s day, the air filled with the spray and roar of overhead sized, tumbling waves.
With a light easterly breeze forecast to drift offshore and a thick and solid 5 foot groundswell rolling in, a clear skied day of sun and surf is on the cards for the whole coast of Cornwall.
Harlyn (3*): 2 to 4 feet
There’s a lot of activity in the early morning carpark at Harlyn with pre-surf workouts, early morning coffees, changing robes flowing, dawn swimmers, surfers, dog walkers, joggers and the assorted overnight travellers arriving to picture postcard perfection.
A mixture of two to three foot fun surf shaken by four foot plus thumping set waves ploughing through is testing the endurance of the more occasional surfers.
A fun and busy day lies ahead for Harlyn!

Surf Conditions for the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend
High pressure is comfying itself as it snuggles over the British Isles for this Spring Bank Holiday weekend and with a tightly packed little low pressure system drifting casually by way out in the Atlantic, I think that it is quite safe to expect some fabulous conditions over the next several days.
Light offshore breezes are predicted for the whole weekend with the skies clearing and the sun shining more and more as we go along. Throw in that thick and punchy, well travelled and smooth groundswell and we have the perfect setup for a classic holiday weekend of sun and surf.
All of our favourite surf breaks should be providing classic conditions, the big spring tides pulling the swell back on the drop and pushing the surf in more as it rises, creating swirling rip currents all the time. That’s great for those guys who have experience and can use those currents to get past the broken waves but could easily catch out the less experienced amongst us. So it is always worth just checking with the lifeguards if you’re unsure – they’re all quite approachable really and they do know how to keep you safe.
For everyone else – #gosurfnow it doesn’t often get this good!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great Spring Bank Holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
