It’s a pleasant enough morning down in the bay, layers of cloud gently drifting in ribbons of pink, blue, grey and orange, the wind absolutely calm.
And the surf is PUMPING!
Glassy walls are gracefully sliding onto the Reef, three to four feet of dark and shiny cylinders while bigger peaks are standing tall on the outside of the bay, again three to four feet, an occasional bigger set shadowing way out back.
The forecasts are showing light offshore breezes till lunchtime, swinging south westerly (onshore) through the afternoon but staying only very light.
It looks like another fabulous day to be surfing in Cornwall!

And with Autumn knocking ever so gently on our door, we are re-filling our rails with a selection of winter wetsuit goodness along with some styling’ winter-warmer clothing.
And to do that we have to clear a big gap or two! We have a good few unsold summer suits left on our rails following on to what has been a wonderfully mild and enjoyable summer season and they have got to go!
This week we are banging out lots of top quality summer weight wetsuits from HALF PRICE and even less! We have full size ranges on some models too!
So keep your eyes open for some BIG BARGAINS to be had and if you’re down our way drop in on us and check out a bargain or two!

Harlyn (1*):  1 to 2 feet

A half decent couple of feet of snappy surf is crashing ashore this morning, a big gap between those sets but they are there if you wait. The tide has just returned and the swell seems to be a building one so, it should be fun as the tide pushes through the day, small but snappy and fun.
The other side is the place to go for some really good surf but there are little waves snapping through here this morning too!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  18:06  (2.5m)             High Tide:  11:34  (6.0m)

Surf Forecast for Thursday 2nd October 2014

SurflineSwellOct14

Surfline’s latest #PurpleBlobOfTheWeek comes to you from the North Atlantic. This system will generate a sizable W/WNW swell for Europe in the coming days, including solid waves to the Quiksilver Pro France. Spots further north will have more of a W direction with the largest swell showing at exposed breaks in Ireland and Scotland, but hiding from the strong winds expected will be critical in finding good waves. More info in the official #QuikPro forecast on Surfline http://surfl.in/1rMrQ1U

South westerly winds are likely to be blowing in today, gusting fresh but not blowing too strong, all the time though helping that swell to roll ashore.
There should be more three foot plus swell pushing through all day, building into the evening as that wind gust a little more strongly. Harlyn is always the place that we think of when there’s a sou’ wester blowing and it should be smart and sharp around there today but maybe not big enough to be exciting. A foot or two and sharp, compared to three or maybe four feet of sloppy stuff on the other side, that’s going to be today’s decision!
And I’m booked on the night ferry to France (have you seen those charts?!) so tomorrow will be the last surf report for a week or so.

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

That deep, deep low pressure system that has been swinging winds around itself all week, parked up to the north of the country should just about be ready to spin some swell our way. A thick and solid swell it should be too!
The winds are forecast to stay light for a little while yet, mainly from the south west, strengthening through the evenings but not too bad through the days.
So there’s going to be plenty of surf about, a decent three to four feet through the week, jumping up more as the weekend arrives.
So it is down to the wind to dictate where the best surf will be and that could very well be Harlyn as we get into the weekend. Or more accurately, it is likely to be a choice between bigger and bumpier west side breaks versus smaller but cleaner sheltered spots like Harlyn.
It is nice to have a choice sometimes!
I’m away for a while from Friday, so there will be no surf report for a while (depending on the swells that roll into Biscay). But it’s looking good for the week here too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
