At 6.20 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 3 to 4 feet
The sky is mainly blue on another coolish but bright morning, the lightest of south easterly breezes drifting offshore to meet a curling and looping three to four foot swell.
Conditions are perfect right now with half a dozen out, loads of peeling, hollow waves to play in and a half decent day of pleasant weather awaiting.
It doesn’t get much better than this!
Harlyn (3*): 2 feet
The high tide peak at Harlyn is calling and tempting this morning, a couple of feet of smooth and almost peeling (for Harlyn!) little waves begging to be surfed on.
But the other side is absolutely going off so that’s the place to be. But if you find yourself here and with something buoyant to ride then you’ll have some fun!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:15 (1.4m) High Tide: 18:08 (7.1m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 2nd September 2020
The light southerly breezes of the morning are soon going to be replaced by a gradually strengthening sou’ wester. And its associated wet weather too.
But the surf should get bigger as we go along, gradually increasing to show a fun little wave at Harlyn by the tea time high.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The mainstream media seem to have not quite got it right (again?) as a very quiet and obviously weird season slams to an end.
The tales of Cornwall being ‘full to capacity’ or ‘closed for business’ while we all quaked and shook with fear of a mass invasion of virally infected tourists were (surprise, surprise!) – wrong.
And, while the Daily Bleuurghs are now saying that we are in for a super extended season, a winter of sun seeking holidaymakers to make up for the three months of closure followed by a very patchy few weeks of trading, well I dunno but something tells me that that might not be accurate either.
It’s unlikely that anyone is busily packing their suncream and bikini for a lounge in the Cornish sunshine this winter!
But then again, we live in hope…..
Anyway, back in the real world, we happy little surf riding people can look forward to a mixed up week of varying conditions.
Calm and settled, bright and still conditions will kick the week off with tiny conditions seeing a chilly Bank Holiday Weekend come to a close.
The swell is likely to slowly build with light offshore breezes and some bright sunshine adding to the attractiveness of Tuesday’s small but super fun and clean surf.
The wind will start to ease back to a more south westerly direction as we go through midweek and that will give the surf an extra push too, adding to the four to six foot swell that is expected by the end of the week.
So those calm and peaceful, summer surf vibe filled days at the beginning of the week will quickly be replaced by a taste of autumn with Harlyn conditions kicking in for the end of the week.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
