At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 5 to 8 feet
It is a fabulously beautiful morning on this part of the North Cornish coastline this morning, that clear pastel blue sky filled with birdsong as light south easterly breeze drifts offshore to meet a pumping swell.
That swell is tripping over itself a little as it roars into the bays, five to six feet of rolling surf being swamped every now and again by sets of waves half as big again.
Those point breaks, river mouths and tucked away coves up and down the coast will be on fire all day long today, especially with these small neap tides that we are enjoying, whereas the more swell exposed spots might be a little swamped.
Locally, Harlyn might be of interest but we do have those peeling and dreamy surf spots not too far away too!
Harlyn (4*): 3 to 4 feet
Three to four feet of smooth but grunty looking waves are punching their way onto the sand as the tide slowly moves in at Harlyn this morning, the sun lighting up the valley as the breeze whispers offshore.
It is quite beautiful here this morning and you should find a few barrels of sand-filled and tubing waves to yourself but there should be those breaks up and down the coast that will be epic today.
Oh Valentine’s Day!
Delivering on the wave front at least!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:58 (1.0m) High Tide: 15:54 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 15th February 2019
A gusting south easterly wind will be hollowing out the four feet of rolling swell all day long.
But that wind might just get a little too gusty and start to push down the swell.
Either way though, we should be enjoying ourselves in this mild winter sunshine and those rolling, hollow and very surfable waves!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
These beautiful, mellow and sun filled days should drift well into this weekend, the sky bright, mild winds drifting up from the south and plenty of open swells rolling our way!
So that mild winter sunshine should continue to cheer us all day long through Saturday, the thick four foot swell of the morning easing off as the day goes on.
The half-term holiday groms are going to be loving Harlyn as those winds smooth and clean the dropping swell, the neap tides barely moving at all.
Bigger swells are going to be tumbling in through Sunday, the wind gusting back from the south west, again cleaning and shaping the surf at Harlyn.
And that surf is likely to get big by evening with some board snapping barrels grinding their way ashore through the afternoon.
That is likely to set the theme for the coming school holiday, half-term week with some big swells expected along with gusting daily south westerly winds. So, big and chunky Harlyn will be the place to surf locally while that bright and dry and pleasant weather continues!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
