Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
at 6.10 a.m.
That’s a much better start to the day!
A bright and pleasant morning is spreading across the coastline with only a light wind drifting in from the sea and plenty of cheery sunshine lighting up the two to three feet of sparkling surf.
That surf is just a bit bumpy because of the wind but it’s generally holding its shape and there are some peaks folding over quite nicely. The set waves are worth waiting for, the bigger ones having the strength to wall up a little better and push through the warp of that onshore wind. The wave faces are clean enough, there’s just that surface bump from the north westerly breeze.
Yep, it looks like we’re in for a fun day of surf in the sun!
And thanks to the Basement Restaurant in Padstow for cooking up yet another smackerooni of a fish dish last night. They are just getting better and better in there, aren’t they?
A very pleasant place to watch all the boats coming and going and bumping about too.
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet
The surf has that same bump to it around here this morning as well, the tell-tale warp of a light north westerly wind, not chopping it but just adding that ruffle to it all. So far.
There is only a foot of surf getting around here this morning though, maybe occasionally just a fraction bigger. So you have to think that the other side of the headland is the place to aim for to get the best surf today. It’s no cleaner here and it is that bit bigger there!

Surf Forecast for Monday 1st September 2014
It might be lunchtime before the gloom lifts today but it should eventually brighten up and clean up while the surf starts to rebuild too.
A westerly going north westerly light wind is expected to start the day, the surf rolling in at only a couple of feet or so to start with and then the wind sliding northerly as the sun shines more strongly while the surf slowly builds.
By evening, we could be enjoying a half decent three to four feet of fairly clean and fun surf while that breeze tries hard to slip offshore (north easterly). Yep, Monday evening might just get very good!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
As Autumn gradually starts to caress our golden beaches and turquoise bays, the feel of summer might just revisit for a few days.
Monday might be a bit of a slow starter, a little gloom and dreariness to start the day, the wind onshore and the surf not all that. But soon enough a new swell should be showing itself just as a welcome slice of bright and cheery late summer (or early Autumn) sunshine puts in an appearance.
By late evening the surf and weather could be starting o get really good, the breeze fighting its way o offshore, the swell pushing into the four foot range.
And then the delicate dance of wind and swell will take us through the rest of the entire week all under clear and bright, sunshiny skies.
The swell is likely to weaken to a still very decent couple of feet by midweek, the breeze staying offshore and folding those waves into hollow little things.
And that looks to be the way of it for a good while! A steady, rolling swell, light offshores and plenty of sunshine. Any holiday time left?
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
