Constantine (1*): 1 foot
at 6.15 a.m.
Another bright and beautiful day is unfolding around us this morning, the sky stretching blue to each horizon, the breeze refreshingly chill this early.
The surf isn’t great, there are only small and wind shaped little one to two foolish waves washing in, all a little tussled, a little sloppy, the wind, light as it is, having its effect. That wind is whistling down from the north, nor’ west, not strongly but with enough force to put a bit of chop into that surf.
We’ll get a surf in but it is likely to be another bumpy and bouncy, sloppy little session. It’s amazing how some sunshine and warm water temperatures can make that so much more attractive though!
And good luck to all the crew down in Fistral, Newquay for the Boardmasters surf comp.!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s pretty flat around here this morning, that north westerly wind lightly blowing straight into the bay and adding some chop and slop to the flatness. And that takes away from all that flat water stuff that you would normally get involved with. But as the tide slides in things should smooth themselves out, making for a better place to SUP or Kayak.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:03 (2.2m) High Tide: 15:03 (6.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 8th August 2014
That still small surf, well, tiny really, should at least look better with the light breezes that are forecast for today. And those breezes should lightly blow offshore for a lot of the day too, making for at least some steeper and faster bits to the surf.
One to two feet of clean and sharp surf should be rolling in today but with maybe only a little sunshine to start the day and end the day. The middle bit might be a little murkier than we would like!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
As the Boardmasters weekend approaches UK surfers are watching the pressure charts with some interest, in particular the track that tropical storm Bertha has chosen to take.
We should get surf this weekend and, if we’re lucky we could get some really good surf this weekend!
Saturday is likely to be another bright enough and cheery enough day with a building swell made bumpy at the main surf breaks by a steady west south westerly wind.
By Saturday’s evening high tide we should be enjoying some half decent but maybe quite choppy three foot plus surf.
And by Sunday we are all hoping that some pumping, powerful surf will be washing our way!
A solid five foot plus swell should hopefully be rolling over those settled sandbanks, messed up by some fresh westerly winds maybe but hopefully big enough to swing into those more sheltered breaks.
And that should roll well into the start of the week. After such a long quiet spell this period of hopefully pumping surf should get everyone excited! Let’s hope that it lasts a while!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
