At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
The bay is calm and tranquil again this morning, the sky a hazy, milky blue reflecting deeply off the blue, blue sea.
It is gorgeous again right now but you can see those light shades just this side of the horizon and that might mean a little cloud cover, sooner rather than later too.
In the meantime though the surf is beautiful, a couple of feet of glassy and peeling, smooth swell lines gliding into the bay with the odd much bigger set tipping its way through the lineup.
It looks dreamy, lazy and much, much fun!
Sorry, we had to postpone today’s much awaited visit by the Lightning Bolt crew, they were distracted in Amsterdam or some such. But they are back on track to hit us up tomorrow (Friday) if you’re around!?:
Yes, these two legends are touring Europe with Lightning Bolt and are planning on calling in for a quiet cup of tea and an unofficial ’meet and greet’ at the shop!! So if you are around tomorrow morning (Friday 25th May) then drop in on us to meet 2 x Pipe Masters champ, Rory Russell and veteran Bolt shaper Craig Hollingsworth!
We might even make you a cuppa!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Tiny, glassy swell lines are tipping onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, the bay a hazy mix of golden yellow with ribbons of turquoise blue.
It’s peaceful and wonderful and as pretty as a picture here again today but there’s very little in the way of surf to ride!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:20 (1.7m) High Tide: 09:00 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 24th May 2019
Bigger swells are going to be only light ruffled and crumbled by calm onshore breezes today.
Those breezes will be drifting down from the north west all day long while the swell should thicken and develop through the morning. I’m sure that we would want an offshore on it all, especially as a little size creeps in but it should all be good enough anyway!
Surf Conditions for the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend
North westerly, onshore breezes are going to be settling in over the next few days as low pressure slowly drifts up the northern Atlantic.
So we can expect the fabulous conditions of the last few days to gradually give way to something only a little less cheery with a little more cloud and of course those onshore breezes.
But the surf will probably still be more than enough to keep the half-term holiday groms bouncing around the surf breaks in three to five foot and bumpy conditions all the way through the holidays.
The winds should stay light enough to make the surf attractive even as the swell builds into the weekend, the three to four foot swells gradually building to five or six feet by the end of the weekend.
Yep, it’s looking okay for a holiday weekend. Not great but very okay!
Have a great Bank Holiday Weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
