At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (4*): 4 to 6 feet
Well, it’s a great day to be a surfer on the North Coast of Cornwall today with clear blue skies reflecting on the undulating glass of a six foot plus swell while a light easterly breeze hurries offshore to meet and groom and manicure it into something very special.
With only two earlybirds out beneath the bright golden sunshine of an early Summer’s morning, empty peaks are reeling left and right from peaks all along the bays.
So grab a stick of wax, slather on some sunscreen, pack a few carbs onboard and paddle out into some perfect, hollow peaks.
Harlyn (2*): 3 to 4 feet
That easterly breeze must have a little north in it this morning, enough to crumble and slop the deceptive looking three to four feet of deep blue surf at Harlyn this morning.
The sun is shining, the sky is blue and a solid swell is rolling smoothly along the coast. But here is not the best place to surf today!
It might be worth having a gander further up the coast today if you’re looking for something less intense than our main breaks!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:28 (1.9m) High Tide: 10:07 (1.9m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 23rd April 2022
An offshore blow will continue to sweep into that dropping swell. As always when an offshore blows we are enjoying the hollowness and shape of those beautiful waves but all the time knowing that those swells are being held back by that same grooming wind.
So today were will be enjoying some beautiful surf but more in the two to there foot range rather than the boomers of yesterday.
Still, you can’t complain at a couple to there feet of peeling and reeling, hollow little surf to play in!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A dropping swell is going to frustrate us as we go through an otherwise great weekend, filled with offshore breezes and tumbling and beautifully shaped but gradually dropping surf.
The breeze will be from the east, offshore and blustering along, pushing hard against the three feet or so of steady swell on Saturday, calming a little as it continues to blow into only knee high swells on Sunday.
It will be one of those weekends to pick the right place at just the right stage of tide and preferably beneath a headland or dune or some other windbreak, to get the beat out of it.
And then it might be best to make sure you have a buoyant board to ride!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
