Surf Report for Thursday 16th March 2017

At 9.45 a.m:  

Constantine (3*):  3 to 4 feet.  

Ah, late again following another quick trip into Truro.
I’m going to be late tomorrow as well, with an early dentist’s appointment scheduled, eek!
Anyway, the thermometer is comfortably into double figures celsius this morning on another overcast but mild and calm kind of day.
The surf has dropped a lot, yesterday afternoon’s booming barrels have been replaced by something a little easier, still a decent three feet or just occasionally bigger and the breeze is still onshoreish but it looks like fun with only a couple out and having fun!

 

Harlyn (3*):  2 to 3 feet  

A couple of feet of glassy and snappy looking little surf is crashing ashore here this morning, the occasional bigger set providing just a little excitement for the guys enjoying their lifeguard training session! It won’t be long until the hullabaloo of the summer season takes over and the guys will be on it!
In the meantime though, the beaches are quiet, it’s all (relatively) mild and the surf is rolling in!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:56  (1.1m)              High Tide:  19:48  (6.9m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 17th March 2017  

Another little pulse of swell should be pushing in today but along with more gusting, onshore winds too!
North westerly going westerly, eventually going south westerly winds are going to mess the surf up all along the coast, Harlyn eventually cleaning up, hopefully on the evening tidal surge.
I’m guessing that Harlyn could just end up being fun – if you have the patience!  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

Ah those onshore winds! It looks as though we are going to be plagued by westerlies all through this weekend again.
With a solid, rolling four to six feet of swell thumping our way throughout the weekend, Harlyn looks the most likely spot for some decent surf.
Even so, Saturday looks as though it might still be blown out even at Harlyn, that wind having a little too much north in it for most of the day.
The south coast might be beckoning if you’re keen!
Sunday might be more fun at Harlyn, a little southerly direction creeping into that still gusting wind.
A building swell be crunching in, hollowed out by that wind at Harlyn, so we should see some sand dredging barrel action for at least part of the day and getting quite big by dusk!
And that looks like the way of it well into next week too, those gusting onshore winds varying from south west to north west and back again, while all the time the surf surges and recedes in the four to six feet region.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
