At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
A proper Cornish mizzle has set in this morning, the breeze gusting fresh from the west carrying wetness and murk in its damp embrace.
And yet it’s a cosy and snuggly kind of morning too, that blanket of low viz cloud just inches off the ground, hugging the headland and cwching (it’s a welsh thing) the sea.
And the surf is a little cleaner than the last few days.
Those two to three foot waves are still a bit hesitant, still mixed up and still a little fat around the edges but there are kind of peaks here and there. It should be worth a paddle out later on as the tide fills in a little.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
Those little one to two foot waves that are managing to find their way around the headland are snapping ashore here this morning, that wind having moved those few degrees around the dial and allowing for smoother and hollower little waves than there have been.
It is small but looks fun with only one guy out and catching a few.
Otherwise that dense and thick, murky mizzle is adding a whole heap of atmosphere to the bay, making for a pleasant wander if you’re wrapped up okay!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 30th May 2019
South westerly winds should have cleared the skies by today, while pushing through some fresh and bouncy three to four foot swells.
One of those bright and breezy days should be offering us the choice between a lively and bouncy paddle out on this side of the headland or a. Smooth and snappy little surf but in only small waves over on the other side.
Nice to have choices though!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Onshore winds are going to plague us this week as the school half-term holidays get into full swing.
But those cold north westerlies that start the week should back more westerly and then south westerly as the week rolls on, at least allowing Harlyn the chance to offer up some pleasant surf conditions.
But as the holiday weekend disappears, north westerly winds are going to chill and dampen us while a mess of three to four foot junk surf bounces along the coast, offering those stir crazy holiday groms nothing more to surf on than blown out junk surf.
But by midweek the wind should have drifted more to the west, allowing for milder temperatures and helping some swells swing all the way around and into Harlyn.
And the back half of the week looks as though its going to be a very definite Harlyn kind of set up with fresh sou’ westerlies pushing a thick and rolling three to four feet of swell along the coast.
That should produce at a least. Foot or two of cleaner little surf at Harlyn to keep everyone happy!
And that should take us well into the weekend, where Sunday is airing to look very full of promise!
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves and lots can change before then! In the meantime, snuggle down cosy for a day or two before heading to Harlyn for the back half of the week for some smallish but clean and snappy surf!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
