At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet.
A beautiful day is spreading its warmth and brightness along the entire coast of Cornwall this morning, the breeze light and offshore, the sky a clear and deep, deep blue, the air filled with birdsong.
And the surf is pumping!
Three feet of curling glass waves are peeling into the bay an hour or so ahead of high water, those crashing little tunnels glistening and glinting in the early morning dew-crystalled sunshine.
With a new swell expected to start showing itself through this afternoon, you have to think that today could just be one of ‘those’ days!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot.
The waves are small here this morning with only a foot or two of glassy little lines wandering into the high water zone. It does all look a bit weak and wishy washy as this existing swell, mainly leftover windswell from the last few days’ onshores, slowly starts to be replaced by a brand new, shiny and more solid swell, a proper, well travelled atlantic swell.
That should happen through this afternoon’s tide resulting in some smooth and lined up waves all along the coast and lasting for a good few days if we’re lucky!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:02 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:56 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 25th May 2016
We are all expecting great things today with a solid, well travelled four feet and bigger of smooth and driving swell meeting some light offshore breezes as they explode into our bays and coves all day long.
And don’t forget that fabulous spring sunshine either, we could just enjoying wall-to-wall sunshine while surfing those offshore shaped and reeling tubes!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After a bit of a lazy and slow start, this week could just turn out to be a delight of clean and sunny conditions with small but sparkling surf to ride.
The wind frustrated us on Monday, a brisk northerly that slopped the rolling swell as it eventually reached shore.
But by Tuesday the wind should have backed to the east, eventually slipping more to the south east. And as the wind strength eases into the evening that small and fairly close-fetch little surf will be replaced by the start of a new three foot swell with a long wave period.
Wednesday is looking really promising with a thick and solid three to four feet of rolling groundswell pumping in against a light and smooth offshore breeze.
The swell will eventually weaken as the week winds down but the wind is set to remain light and offshore and the sun is set to shine.
It promises to be a good one!
Have great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
