At 9.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 4 to 5 feet
Another late surf report, the result of a dead laptop combo’d with an early morning Truro trip.
But you’re not missing much, a blustery north westerly wind is keeping temperatures down while wrecking the five or six feet of blown and chopped surf.
The sun might have cheered up that awful wet and windy, lo-viz start to the day but it hasn’t improved the surf!
We should see an increase in wave height through today but conditions aren’t looking to improve as that wind strengthens!
Harlyn (0*): 3 to 4 feet
The north westerly wind is blowing hard into Harlyn this morning, chopping and trashing the three to four feet of fairly localised windswell.
No, if you’re not keen on visiting the far coast in search of cleaner conditions then a gluttonous cruise into Padstow for the start of the Padstow Christmas Festival might be on the cards!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:16 (1.1m) High Tide: 20:12 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 8th December 2017
A hard blowing north westerly wind stretching all the way down from Storm Caroline off Scotland is going to be keeping temperatures down today! We might see the odd speck of sleet or even snow but we are not going to see much in the way of rideable surf.
Not on this coast anyway.
Six to eight feet of chopped out windswell being flung ashore by those hard blowing winds is the best that we can hope for unless we decide to trip over to the far coast in search of some cold and hollow barrels!?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Another windswept, damp and freezing cold few days are beckoning as Storm Caroline swings north over Scotland but sweeps her winds all the way down here.
The surf is likely to be completely out of control, a wild and windblown mess of big enough but broken up surf to close the week.
But by Saturday we might just be enjoying some of that really very cold but winter bright and cheery weather, the wind easing to a breeze as it backs to the north east, cold but offshore. That should allow the couple to three feet of fairly close together little surf to at least beak with some shape to tempt you in for some better than expected sessions.
A greyer Sunday will see the wind gusting in from the south, maybe just about about drifting to the south east. That will clean up the very small, one to two feet of otherwise weak surf, maybe just making it tempting enough to drag you out for a glide or two in between feasting yourself at the Padstow Christmas Festival where there will be more celebrity chefs cooking up a storm than you can shake a spatula at!
So, all in all it’s promising to be a fun weekend with great food loads of entertainment and a few waves to beckon you in!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
