Tuesday 26th July

Waist to shoulder high and messy at Fistral this morning, with a light W wind, which is picking up as the day goes on, but turning a little to the SW which should clean things up a little at South. The swell should stay around the same size all day. High is at 10.26am and Low’s at 4.49pm.

IMG_9501 (1)

Smaller and choppy at Tolcarne this morning, could be a little something when the tide drops out and the wind swings a bit this afternoon but don’t expect much, my guess would be knee to waist high and choppy.

Friday 22nd July

Knee to waist high and perfectly clean out there at South Fistral this morning. At the moment the wind is super light and offshore, but it’s due to come up a little into the afternoon and swing to NW, so get in quick if you can! Low’s at 1.52pm High’s at 7.51pm.

IMG_9472

Ankle snappers again at Tolcarne, should be just about surfable when the tide drops a little.

IMG_9489

Thursday 21st July:

Small and glassy at South Fistral this morning- about knee high with a super light southerly (cross-off shore) wind. Should stay pretty much the same all day. Low’s at 1.12 pm and high’s at 7.10 pm

IMG_9437

Just ankle snappers at Tolcarne, with the short period making it only just surfable, should stay super glassy all day though.

IMG_9448

Wednesday 20th July:

That’s it for summer I’m afraid folks. Back to flat and onshore now, might pick up a tiny bit later, although winds staying pretty strong so will be rubbish even if there is a wave. Low’s at 12.32pm High’s at 6.31pm

IMG_9424

 

 

Flat & windy at Tolcarne also.

IMG_9428

Tuesday 19th July:

Another beautiful day out there, with clean offshore ankle snappers, should hold or even pick up a tiny bit as the day goes on. Lows at 11.53 am and high’s at 5.52pm.

IMG_9410

Tolcarne is looking delightful this morning, but nothing surfable.

IMG_9413

Monday 18th July:

Beautiful morning out there this morning, super hot and sunny, light offshore winds and clean waist high waves coming through at South. Swell is dropping gradually is the day goes on so get in quick if you can! Low’s at 11:12am & high’s at 5.12pm.

IMG_9065

Lovely at Tolcarne also, although a little smaller- with sets around knee high. If you’re down here check out our shop stand for all your beach reading material needs, including discounted back issues.

Friday 15th July:

Flat out there at Fistral, with a very light W (onshore) wind. It should pick up a bit into the afternoon and there will hopefully a choppy but surfable wave later. High 2.51PM Low is 9.10PM

IMG_9049

Flat out at Tolcarne as well. Check back on twitter later for an update.

IMG_9050

Thursday 14th July:

Terrible out there again this morning, with a strong onshore wind & really short period chopped up tiny swell. High’s at 1.43 pm & lows at 8.02. pm

IMG_9041

Same at Tolcarne choppy and small:

IMG_9047

Wednesday 13th July:

Pretty much un-surfable at Fis this morning with a small, short period swell running and a strong NW (onshore) wind. High’s at 12.30 am. Lows at 6.47pm

IMG_9031

Pretty much the same deal at Tolcarne, might be just about surfable later if you’re desperate.

IMG_9035

Tuesday 12th July:

Fat and pretty gutless waist to shoulder high wave out at Fistral this morning, dropping a little through the day. WNW (onshore) wind is blowing fairly strongly and staying strong through the day. Highs at 11:28 am and lows at 5:42.

IMG_9010

Tolcarne looking waist high and messy and it’s coming up to high tide so not really worth a look till later unless you want to surf a messy shorey.

IMG_9027

Monday 11th July:

Plenty of swell left over from yesterday at Fistral this morning, however there’s a fairly strong NW (on-shore) wind blowing making it a lot messier than the weekend. It’s overhead plus out there at the moment but the swell is dropping gradually all day and the wind is due to pick up so will stay pretty unruly out there.

IMG_8988

Tolcarne is also pretty chopped up, with a cross shore wind, but should clean up a little as the tide drops out later. It’s shoulder high at the moment but will slowly shrink as the day goes on.

IMG_8999

Friday 8th July:

Bit of a grim morning out there first thing, but seems to be clearing and we’re forecast a fairly sunny day. There’s still a bit of chopped up swell kicking around from yesterday afternoon. The wind is onshore at Fistral and strong enough to be making it pretty messy out there. Swell is dropping a bit as the day goes on but should waist- shoulder high all day.

IMG_7822

Waves are a little smaller and cleaner at Tolcarne, with a moderate cross-shore wind. Should be a wobbly knee high wave around all day.

IMG_7847

Thursday 7th July:

Update:

Both Fistral and the bay have picked up as the swell & wind has increased. Fistral is shoulder to head high and a little choppy with a moderate W (onshore) wind. Tolcarne is waist to shoulder high, with a little side-chop from the cross-shore wind. Here’s a shot of Tolcarne from just after 3pm:

IMG_7806

 

9am – Almost completely flat out there this morning at Fistral, although the tide is still really high. The swell is due to pick up as the day goes on and there should be a fun wave by this afternoon. Wind is super light and SSW (cross-shore) but is also supposed to pick up through the day.

IMG_7795

Tolcarne is completely flat, but should also pick up to about waist high by this afternoon (if the forecast is right).

IMG_7800

Wednesday 6th July:

The sun is out and it’s knee high and clean at Fistral today, with almost no wind at all. The swell is due to hold for most of the day and the wind should stay light and from the SW all day. Low’s at 1.34 pm and high at 7.31pm.

IMG_7746
Clean ankle snappers at Tolcarne which might be just about foamable later as the tide drops a little.

IMG_7792

Tuesday 5th July:

Overhead and messy at South Fistral this morning, with a moderate but gusty NW (on-shore) wind. The swell is due to drop a little as the day goes on but conditions will stay pretty ugly all day. Low’s at 12.50 highs at 6.47

IMG_7711

Not looking any better at Tolcarne, which is also onshore, smaller and even more chopped up and on top of itself:

IMG_7732

Monday 4th July:

Knee to waist high and clean at South Fistral this morning, with quite a long wait between sets. The wind is WSW (cross-on) and fairly light at the moment although due to pick up through the day so get in now if you can. Low’s at 12.40 and high is at 6 and it’s springs so it will be flat for a good few hours around it at Fistral:

IMG_7685

 

Clean ankle snappers at Tolcarne this morning, just about surfable on a big enough board. The wind will be cross-off all day, so if the swell picks up a little as it’s forecast to the bay could be the call if you’re desperate:
