SJ’s Surf Forecast for the SW

Forecast last updated at 09:00 Monday 27th June 2016
Hi everyone – these updates are currently made at any time of the day as and when I get the time/chance to update – however from September the intention would be for it to be updated every weekday morning by 10am.

[Don’t forget to look at this forecast the day before you go beach for the latest, as things can often change!]

The Rest Of The Week:
‘A bleak weak with no real quality to the swell, and therefore it’s looking likely there’ll only be one ‘window’ of good winds this week to allow a decent clean wave – see/read below.’
Sunrise and sunset – 05:15 and 21:35
Twilight starts and ends – 04:30 and 22:20
Midday – 13:20
Length of day – 16:20
Offshore Sea Temp approx – 14.5C / 58F

Tides – 05:52 Low, 11:54 High, 18:22 Low

Wednesday 29th:
‘Strong winds and awful weather! Stormy surf like conditions with only a small raggedy wave at sheltered spots on the North.’

North Coast – 3-5ft (Waist-Shoulderhigh) going 5-6ft (Headhigh)
South Coast – 3-4ft (Waist-Chesthigh)
Tides – 07:05 Low, 13:04 High, 19:38 Low

Thursday 30th:

Weather – Bright start with rain likely later on
North Coast – 4-6ft (Chest-Headhigh)
South Coast – 2-4ft (Waisthigh)
Tides – 08:16 Low, 14:13 High, 20:49 Low

Friday 1st:

Wind – Medium-Strong W
Weather – Mixture of cloud, sunshine, and light rain
North Coast – 4-6ft (Chest-Headhigh) going 6-8ft (Overhead)
South Coast – 3-4ft (Waist-Chesthigh)
Tides – 09:21 Low, 15:19 High, 21:53 Low

Weekend Summary:
‘EWarly days – will update the weekend section on Tuesday.’

Saturday 2nd:
‘x’
Swell – (i) OK W-WNW going W
Wind – Medium-Strong W going W-SW
Weather – Cloudy with light rain
North Coast – x
South Coast – x
Tides – 10:20 Low, 16:17 High

Sunday 3rd:
‘x’
Swell – (i) Weak W-WSW
Wind – Medium-Strong SW going W
Weather – Cloudy with light rain
North Coast – x
South Coast – x
Tides – 04:45 High, 11:13 Low, 17:10 High

Early Next Week:
‘x’

The scale for measuring conditions:

0-1ft – Unridable/Flat
1-2ft – Kneehigh
3ft – Waisthigh
4-5ft – Chest/Shoulderhigh
6ft – Headhigh
6-8ft = 1-1.5x Overhead
8-10ft = 1.5x Overhead
10-12ft = 2x Overhead
Please Note!

Wave height predictions are based on the larger breaks on both coasts such as Fistral and Croyde for the North, and Praa Sands and Bantham for the South.

Wave height is measured from the front of the wave, and 6ft would usually mean a ‘head-high’ wave.

Try and use some ‘local’ knowledge about what the wave sizes will be elsewhere. For example the Newquay Bay area is generally 1/3 to 3/4 the size of Fistral, increasing the further up the bay you go from Towan to Lusty Glaze, and that it will be clean on a W wind at ‘harbour left’ at Towan at mid-tide’ for example.

Tide times are based on Newquay.

Stay Stoked!
