At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet
The leaden sky of a cold Cornish morning is slowly being replaced by something a little brighter, those trailing ribbons of grey cloud gradually being splintered by blue.
The wind continues to whistle down from the north west, an uncomfortably chilling and surf-chopping breeze that will hopefully stay only light through the day.
So the surf is still small, still close together and still ruffled and slopped, those waves almost tumbling in on top of each other.
We might see lighter later and that always helps to make any onshore surf more attractive.
So, a day of thrashing about in junk surf lies in wait!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Six inches to a foot of onshore chopped, grey surf is weakly washing onto the high tide sand here today.
That will likely weaken even more as the tide drops out but the wind will continue to push tiny lines of chop onto the beach. It’s hardly enticing but with the school holidays in full swing there will probably be a few keen ones getting in here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:58 (0.9m) High Tide: 19:49 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Good Friday 2017
The wind is likely to be more westerly today, maybe starting out just a little south westerly, making Harlyn look pretty. But we’ll be lucky to see much more than a foot or two of chopped out surf at our main surf breaks, allowing not much more than inches of surf to get into Harlyn.
So, a couple of feet or so of chop and slop at the main breaks is as much as we can hope for again today!
Surf Conditions for Easter Weekend 2017
North westerly winds look set to continue to plague us throughout this Easter Weekend, keeping temperatures low and making for choppy surf conditions.
Small and localised wind swells are our best hope for surfing this weekend with a forecast foot or two of junky little waves set to keep the young guys happy with their air attempts, those bumpy little waves offering loads of chop-hop opportunities!
So, a mainly dry and bright enough holiday weekend awaits with enough little waves being blown in to tempt most surfers into the water at some stage.
Have a great Easter, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
