At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s a gloriously still and calm and peaceful morning on this International Dawn Chorus Day, the early morning silence broken only by the war cries and hunting screams of, yes, the dawn chorus.
But as the early morning fog slowly thins and lifts, a bright and clear, sun drenched scene is being revealed, the bay a gorgeous mix of pastel blues and yellows and creams.
The surf is tiny but rideable, way bigger than yesterday but still really very small.
A foot or so of gorgeously molten glass waves are delicately trickling over the sandbars, peeling daintily towards the shore.
We are going to need some big boards to get the best out of it but there should be some fun waves to slide and glide across on this beautiful Sunday morning!
And a massive thanks to Patagonia for putting on ‘Fishpeople’ at the Lighthouse in Newquay last night.
An insightful film by Keith Malloy with some stunning sequences. And Kimi Werner (@kimi_swimmy)’s insights were jaw dropping too, especially her shark tale in the after-film Q&As!
It’s definitely well worth a look-see if you can get the chance!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
The fog is still clinging to the shore here this morning, a weighty veil of watery obscurity blocking the view.
But the surf is flat, you can hear that and feel it too. There’s barely a hiss of folding ripples as they glide across the sand.
Otherwise though, as always, Harlyn keeps its beauty, even if it is a low visibility kind of beauty this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Monday 8th May 2017
A light offshore breeze will be enhancing the still only small little swells that will be hissing ashore today.
A foot or two of summery fun surf can be expected all day, as always, the tide playing an important part in getting the best out of it!
As the tide shallows out over those ribbons of sand, then small, peeling waves will spin you across the bay. But as soon as the deep bits are filled in then the surf will flatten out again. Until the next sandbar is reached!
No surf report on Monday – I’m away for a day or so.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We can expect a beautiful start to this week with calm and settled conditions expected throughout, the breeze set offshore from the east, the swell only tiny but rideable and promising to build through midweek.
So Monday will present a foot or two of offshore moulded, glassy and peeling little, one to two foot surf in some pleasant and bright weather.
By Tuesday we should be enjoying a very gorgeous three feet plus of reeling and peeling, sunlit surf, under mainly clear skies, those offshore breezes staying only light.
The swell size will shrink as the week winds down but conditions should keep us interested in those immaculately shaped little waves all the way through.
Yep, it’s all looking good for a week of small but pleasantly enjoyable little surf!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
