At 7.35 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 2 to 3 feet
There’s barely a breeze on this murky and mizzly but peacefully cosy Cornish morning, a thick marine mist clinging to the bays to muffle all sound.
Two or three feet of lumpy but smooth waves are tumbling ashore, the approaching high tide fattening those waves as they start to break.
As the tide drops things should sharpen up but by then of course the breeze will probably have swung onshore.
Harlyn (2*): 1 to 2 feet
A deserted and silent Harlyn is snugly wrapped in a thick marine muzzle this morning, the gentle swoosh of the high tide fattened surf merging only with the mellow calls of the breakfasting seabirds.
As the tide eases out those little one to two foot waves should sharpen and glisten, especially as the breeze strengthens from the south west, offshore at Harlyn.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:36 (1.4m) High Tide: 21:32 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 22nd October 2020
A light south westerly breeze will continue to shape the snappy but tiny surf at Harlyn while rolling and crumbling the two to three foot waves on the west side.
At least that breeze will push the muzzle and mist and showers and clouds away though!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A mixed up week of surf and weather is about to keep us on our toes this week!
Starting out with a keen south south easterly breeze fussing its way offshore through Monday, low pressure will soon edge over us to produce some screeching onshores, a hard blowing sou’ westerly whooping up some big waves well into midweek.
But it won’t be long before that wind calms and eases its way to that cold northerly direction, the surf dropping in size by the minute, more onshores pushing bigger swells at us for the weekend.
So, Monday should show us a gloomy couple of feet of prettily shaped surf, the offshore wind maybe strengthening a little too much as the day goes on and the sun makes a reluctant appearance.
The wind will soon strengthen again as it backs to the south west pushing big lumps of winter swell our way, Harlyn waking from its short slumber to produce some lumping barrels.
There should be some bright enough stretches this week but it is going to be windy and there are going to be a few downpours to dodge while hunting down the best waves that a more wintery North Atlantic has to offer.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
