At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to 3 feet
Well, it is a much brighter and cheerier start to today than it was yesterday!
There’s mainly blue sky covering us this morning, a cooling deep blue probably reflecting the chillier air temperature due to the north westerly wind that is steadily blowing down on us this morning.
And that is affecting the surf too.
There’s only a couple to maybe three feet of washed out and weak looking surf struggling to the beach, that north westerly wind still tugging and pulling at those disinterested waves.
It’s pretty much bang on low tide right now and so the surf is completely exposed to that wind, it should all improve but only slightly, as the tide bumbles in through the morning.
The good news is that the wind should be easing throughout the day, ready to swing offshore overnight (we hope).
So we should be surfing a couple of feet of okayish surf by this afternoon, probably being better around high tide later this morning though.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It is pretty small around here this morning, well, pretty much flat really.
And choppy too.
That wind is blowing straight in here this morning and looks set to stay that way all day.
No, it’s the other side for some surf today and it’s not going to be great over there!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 18:14 (1.9m) High Tide: 11:49 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 10th July 2015
Are you ready to get your glide on!?
Today could be small wave, longboard heaven!
With only a foot or two of swell forecast, becoming more solid with the tide, the wind should rescue the day by being offshore. Throw some pleasant and warming sunshine into the mix and suddenly we finally have one of those proper cornish summer beach days!
Wax down the plank or get yourself a fish to make the most of it!
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
It has been another week of onshores with showers, a consistent three to four foot swell pushing in all along the coast, big bundles of white/grey clouds being ushered along to show a lot of dark as well as some brighter skies too.
Thursday is likely to be a brighter and calmer replay of Wednesday with those north westerly winds gradually calming, remaining from the north west but a lot lighter, while the sky gradually brightens. But with the calming of the wind comes the calming of the swell. It’s likely to be smaller on Thursday, a couple of feet or so of mixed up windswell maybe.
But the end of the week is starting to look quite pleasant with light offshores and small but pleasant surf due for Friday.
By Saturday though we should be seeing a new swell and, yes you’ve guessed it, more onshore winds. But those winds are likely to stay westerly or south westerly, which is warmer ad helps the swell too, even if it can be damper.
So we could be surfing Harlyn this weekend, only small but quite clean, or biggish but bumpy Constantine side.
At least we should have a choice!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
