At 7.55 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
Daylight is struggling to find a way through the squalls and blows of a wet ‘n breezy winter’s morning this morning, a fidgety westerly wind lazily flicking the three to four foot waves onto the beach.
It’s a day for waterproofs and cosy snuggling, a hot chocolate kind of morning rather than an espresso rush.
Lockdown must be over then!
We are so stoked that our little surf store is now open again, 10 till 5 on Friday through Monday!
Our suppliers have really looked after us during this product starved Winter and we have managed to pick up a few very decent wetsuits and accessories.
It has been difficult with most supply chains faltering all year long but our surf suppliers have managed to provide a decent range of stock to us and, while it might not be the normal full stock levels, we do have most sizes, styles and quantities.
We are particularly happy about stocking the fabulously warm and comfy cosy Wetty wetsuit boots which offer a styly choice along with our range of game-changing Solite boots allowing you the opportunity to get a perfect fit (and of course we also have our existing ranges of O’Neill, Patagonia and a few Xcel boots, gloves and thermal liners too!).
And how great are the new Alder Evo Fire winter wetsuits! They are the bomb – at an affordable price too!
And if you’re looking for stocking fillers we have a pretty good range of scented candles, wetsuit shampoo, Sex Wax fresheners and a whole lot of other great stuff!!
We have a range of beanies by Buff as well as our own beanies to go with our own branded tees and sweat shirts and are stoked to have recently received a small but classic range of Kanvas by Katin clothing!
Add that to our wonderfully warm Patagonia jackets and Vissla waterproofs and tees ranges and you know that you don’t need to go anywhere else to shop your surfing needs this Winter!
Drop in on Constantine Bay Surf Store this Christmas!!
Harlyn (2*): 2 to 3 feet
A bumpy couple of feet of grey and wintery looking surf is barely bothering to dump itself onto the beach at Harlyn this morning, dark and drenching squalls being flung into the bay by the same twitchy westerly wind that’s junking out the surf.
Conditions aren’t great and will probably only deteriorate as the morning goes on with that wind backing north westerly. But then again, I often think that Harlyn can be fun in an onshore, you have that extra moment of time to get into the waves before it inevitably closes out.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:14 (1.6m) High Tide: 19:06 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 4th December 2020
Cold and wet North Westerly winds are going to be blowing down the coast today, chopping and slopping the otherwise decently sized, six feet or so of windswept swell.
If you want something cleaner to surf on then Tier 1 conditions should allow a little careful and socially distancing travel to the other coast maybe?
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
As Covid restrictions are eased here and there, this post-lockdown weekend is promising some potentially fun surf all the way along this stretch of jaggedy Cornish coastline.
A steady four foot swell is going to be teased and smoothed by a gradually calming offshore breeze through Saturday, a little wintery sunshine tempting us out to play.
By Sunday that breeze will have been pulled back to the north, dropping temperatures to chilly single figures degrees C, while bumping and riffling its way across the wave faces of a slightly smaller swell.
There’ll be some weak and watery winter sunshine but it is still going to feel cold!
I am going to be tied up with family stuff for a few days over the weekend so no surf report until next week!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
