At 10.35 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 feet.
Another (very) late report after an early quick trip to sunny Truro.
Unfortunately it’s not that sunny here though, a blanket of low cloud cover stretching along the coastline with a line of blue just visible over there.
The surf is pumping though, a four foot swell being buffeted by a lively onshore, nor’ westerly wind, not that strong but strong enough to move some water around and make that paddle a bit of a chore. But in amongst the slop and chop there are those grinding, hollow one that make it worthwhile!
Ollie says ‘it’s five feet and messy with a strong rip dragging to the Point’.
So, it’s not great but there are some chunky and fun ones coming through if you fancy the paddle!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet.
The surf is pretty small around here right now but the tide is just starting to push and looking at the other side of the headland you have to think that it’s going to build.
The north westerly wind is gusting straight in and churning those little waves but also making for some snappy little launch pads!
So, give it a couple of hours and there should be some lumpy ones to play in if you don’t fancy the drive to the south coast!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:46 (2.1m) High Tide: 15:43 (6.1m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 17th June 2016
More onshore, north westerly winds are expected but with some more settled brightness to cheer us all up maybe.
The surf is likely to be a little smaller, a couple to three feet at the main surf breaks and smaller on the far coast (if you’re looking for cleaner conditions!).
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Onshore winds are likely to plague this coast as the week winds down and that chunky swell from Thursday is likely to weaken off too as we enter the weekend.
So we are likely to be enjoying only a couple to three feet of onshore slopped surf for most of the weekend. But at least the weather should be dry enough and bright enough to cheer everyone up although there is always going to be that chance of a random downpour here and there, especially through Sunday.
Our best bet for better waves are going to be around higher tide, early in the morning or late evening, while the wind is calmer and the tide is helping what swell there is.
And it is always fun to get those sloppy little launch pads to fly from anyway!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
