At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
The wind is blowing fresh this morning, a brisk westerly tumbling bundles of sunlit clouds across the bay while topping and chopping an otherwise fun looking little swell.
I guess that we’re going to see the odd shower or three today but the gaps between should be pleasant enough. And the three to four feet of lumpy and bumpy, scattered windswell should keep us busy enough to ignore the fickleness of a more typical Cornish summer weather pattern.
It is nice to have some waves back, even if they are a bit choppy and bumpy.
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
The headland is half protecting the waves at Harlyn from that blowey westerly this morning, the dark sea coming more alive than we have seen it for a week or two. There are sets of two or three feet tall waves lumping their way onto the sand as the tide pushes in, all front lit by a golden sun squeezing its way through fast moving bundles of cloud.
It’s all very dramatic looking in the bay and those waves, even though they are still quite small, are definitely worth a session or two!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:31 (1.4m) High Tide: 21:28 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 29th July 2021
We can look forward to another blustery day of onshore, westerly winds blowing a little dampness our way while chopping and crumbling the four feet or so of close-fetch, mainly windswell.
Temperatures are lower than last week but should still remain pleasantly mid-teens celsius. Although the sea temperature might end up being higher than the air temperature today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore breezes are going to be replacing those sweltering temperatures of last week with something a little cooler, the north westerly breezes of the start of the week feeling distinctly chilly in comparison.
But the sun should continue to shine and the farmers and gardeners are likely to be disappointed by the lack of much rain, the odd shower or two keeping drought fears away for now.
We should also see some waves starting tumble our way with close-together and fairly sloppy little swells being blown in by those breezes.
The wind is likely to stay in the west to north west quadrant – onshore at all of our breaks locally. But we might even see Harlyn staying to show some little waves by midweek as the wind settles westerly, not quite clean for Harlyn but better than those nor’ westerlies.
So, we should be able to loosen those rusty paddling muscles and sharpen up those lazy reflexes with a couple of sloppy but snappy sessions in waves big enough to allow us to actually drop down!
It’s likely to be a sloppy swell of mediocre shape and little power but it’ll do for high summer!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
