Strong Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 7.25 a.m. on Sunday 20th October 2013:
It's a blustery old morning down in the bay, the wind blowing steadily from the south, the sky a mixed up whirl of candyfloss from the funfair of Mordor. There are Pinks and Blues and Greys and Blacks in that sky this morning, the full moon scudding through the gaps giving some sort of lightness to it all.
The surf is nowhere near as big as was being predicted. Four to five feet, or maybe three to five feet of bouncy, deep blue waves are breaking way too early and rolling beachwards without a heck of a lot of conviction.
There are occasional sets marching in tall and breaking twice as far out, bowling peaks with short walls, hardly a shoulder to hang on to after the vertical drop.
Looking at the charts, it's a fair guess to think that the surf might just build through the day, probably doubling in size - think of that paddle out!
But one or two of those peaks look worthwhile maybe. Although there must be better breaks in these conditions.
Let's have a look at Harlyn......
And good luck to all of the students down at Fistral Bay for the BUCS Universities Competition, one of the biggest surf contests in the world. You guys have lucked in this weekend - enjoy!
