At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet
It’s wild and woolly outdoors this morning, a howling sou’ westerly galloping into the bay to blow those lockdown blues away.
The surf is wild and out of control, a windblown and swirling mix of madness.
If you’re feeling a little confined and restless or anxious then why not wrap up warm and dry and have a little shuffle to your nearest outdoor space, that’ll blow any cobwebs away!
Harlyn (3*): 4 feet
The howling sou’ westerly gale is shrieking offshore at Harlyn this morning, holding the almost head high waves tall and hollow, before allowing them to crash beachwide onto the hardened sand of a dropping tide.
As always those oh so rare screaming right-handers are just frequent enough, hollow enough and makeable enough to keep you paddling into lumping great close-out after mighty close-out in the search for just one more racing barrel!
It’s going to get big later, probably doubling or trebling in size on this afternoon’s tide.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:24 (0.6m) High Tide: 17:17 (7.8m)
Forecast for Monday 16th November 2020
Screeching south westerly winds and a lumping great swell add up to one thing locally – Harlyn!
Well two things if you like those wedgy, tuck and runs around the corner but that’s something for the few.
Harlyn is likely to be big and tough and breaking hard, doing that whole winter-at-Harlyn thing that it does so well!
Conditions for the Start of the Week
A stormy week of howling onshore winds and thumping North Atlantic swells is going to test your resolve this week!
As we enter another week of this weird second lockdown, a series of low pressure systems are lining up to drive more wind and waves onto our jagged and rugged Cornish coastline.
Locally, Harlyn is going to be the centre of surf activity but the waves are likely to be big and hard hitting even here. We can expect a week of four foot and strong offshore surf, building little on the incoming tides, easing a tad on the drop.
Your reflexes are going to be razor sharp after this spell of winter waves at Harlyn, trying to thread your way through those shifting close-outs all week long!
But the water is still relatively mild and we’ll see enough bright weather to keep things cheery!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
