At 7.00 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 6 feet
It’s another stupidly late upload of this morning’s surfcheck, due to not being able to start the laptop, again!
So if there’s anyone out there that can sort a new motherboard to pop into an early 2011 MacBook Pro then give us a shout (Apple view this as far too old to bother with). Or if you can recommend a good replacement? The new Apples don’t seem to be as good for the money any more. Or you might know differently?
Anyway, the surf is PUMPING so you might want to be getting a wriggle on and aiming for a ‘get-wet’!:
It’s a damp and overcast, calm and quiet start to the day with barely a breath of air to disturb the lightly falling rain. And so the four to five feet of rolling and curling swell is breaking glassily across the bay with some hollow and mad peaks spinning off the back of the Reef.
The forecasts are promising calm breezes giving glassy conditions throughout the day while a building swell should light up all of our favourite surf breaks up and down the coast!
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A couple of fete or so of glassy faced little snappers are crashing onto the sand at Harlyn this morning, the mist and mizzle of an absolutely still Cornish morning making for a pleasantly cosy vibe.
Most of the swell is rolling past the bay as low tide approaches but we should see a decent increase in size with the incoming tide maybe doubling the height of those waves by this afternoon.
If the other side is a bit too much then here is a very fun option and it should only improve as the day goes on!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 20:47 (2.7m) High Tide: 14:16 (5.2m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 11th April 2018
Light offshore breezes and some pleasantly bright and cheery spells of sunshine should make the three feet of rolling and tubing swell all the more tempting.
It is looking like a very enjoyable day of surfing will be on offer all the way along this jagged and cragged coastline, all day long!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
All the groms who are enjoying a second week of school holidays are going to be frothing over the surf conditions for this coming week. With light offshore breezes forecast to whisper our way for most of the time and enough bright weather to accompany a pulsing swell there is going to be plenty of enjoyable surf around, with enough variation to satisfy petty much everyone’s taste.
The three to four feet of swell with light northerlies of Monday are soon going to be replaced by six to eight feet of grinding hollowness by Tuesday, the wind gusting in from the north east and blowing those chunky waves inside out as they the tumble and spill our way all day long.
By midweek and then for the rest of the week the swell should settle in the three to four feet range, the breeze continuing from the east, hollowing and shaping those consistent swells.
I think that the weather and surf are just about to start making up for those tedious conditions that reigned through winter maybe!
Anyway, it is looking like a surf drenched week ahead of us with enough fine weather to satisfy visitors and residents alike.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
