At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
It is a beautiful day today, every bit as sunny and warm and bright and cheerful as the forecasts promised!
A milky blue sky is spanning the horizons, the blossom weighted hedgerows splashing some colour across those green fields while deep blue and turquoise waves wrap across the golden sands.
And down in the bay two to three feet of teasing and tempting shadowy swell lines are cruising into the still too high shorebreak, standing tall in the early morning sun before collapsing onto the sand.
The breeze is offshore, the swell is small but super clean and the sun is shimmering.
And barely a soul to be seen.
That will change soon though with the school half-term holidays just about to unleash a horde of frothing, surf starved groms!
So make the most of today’s fabulous conditions! Give it an hour or two and we should be enjoying some fun-in-the-sun gliding conditions.
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
The tide is still too high to allow those tiny waves that have struggled to get all the way around and into the bay here this morning. And as that tide gradually empties, those little waves will probably disappear completely.
But don’t worry, the other side of the headland is looking fun and should stay that way all day long.
In the meantime it is still beautiful here this morning, a tempting place to slide the SUP out and go for a very enjoyable drift while waiting for the tide to improve.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:04 (0.5m) High Tide: 17:57 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 25th May 2017
A gusting south easterly wind is going to be buffeting the two to three feet of finely manicured, peeling surf.
Another bright and cheery, beautiful day is expected with enough surf to keep most of us more than happy, as long as that offshore wind doesn’t get up too strong!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Ah, wouldn’t you believe it, all that gorgeous weather and small but clean surf and then the groms escape the school gates for a break and the weather goes wobbly.
The weather will probably have overheated by Saturday resulting in a bit of a thick and heavy skied day with some occasional drenching to be had. And of course the wind will likely twitch onshore for the day too, a gusting sou’ westerly chopping out the west side beaches while teasing with its offshore cleanliness at a likely surfless Harlyn.
And that sou’ wester is likely to continue into Sunday morning but slowly brightening and cheering, the wind gradually backing to the north and then north east (offshore) by the evening.
So Sunday could very definitely be a day of two halves the evening conditions maybe making up for the sloppiness of earlier.
And then we are into a week of mixed conditions but with plenty of surf and periods of more than decent weather.
Yep, I think that the groms should end up having a pretty good week off school with plenty of surf and some okay weather too!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
