At 9.35 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 5 to 6 feet
There’s a hard wind blowing again this morning, a gale force north westerly trying to bully us into winter clothes already. But don’t give in, it will warm up later!
In the meantime that wind is hurling loads of broken waves our way. It’s not huge out there but big enough to keep the seascape artists clutching their brushes in an effort to paint their back-to-front waves!
Well, maybe not all of them.
So five or six feet of wind thrashed and rolling surf is trampolining its way onto the sand, a bouncy and unpredictable mess of waves to play in if you’re keen enough!
I opted for the early morning Truro run and I can’t see that I missed anything!
Harlyn (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Three to four feet of pushy and shovey kind of surf is slapping the sand like a teenager in their first week back in the class room.
There’s little shape to any of it and it’s breaking where and when it likes but if you’re keen you should get a few fun drop ins!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:50 (2.4m) High Tide: 12:12 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 15th September 2017
And on the wind blows!
That same north westerly is likely to continue to gust down the coast, not helping the swell size any and demolishing any hopes we might hold for some cleaner shape.
Two to three feet of windswept and interesting is about as much as we can hope for today!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well, it should be a lot calmer and brighter and cheerier by Sunday but otherwise we are still likely to be enjoying mostly onshore winds this weekend still blowing from the north west.
Except for that spell on Sunday morning, maybe.
So Saturday looks like an extension of this week with those north westerly winds chopping and slopping the two feet or so of already mixed up junk surf.
We might just enjoy a short respite of more north easterly breezes, at least allowing those probably small waves to clean up a little at the more sheltered south west facing coves and bays.
And then we will be back to a more south westerly air flow as we go into next week. Which should at least push the surf up a little!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
