Constantine (0*):  Flat and crumbly

at 6.10 a.m.

It’s not a write off, not entirely, not yet!
But this morning is a gloomy one with little to no surf.
There’s a crumbly ripple or two, weakly washing ashore under a grey and cloudy sky, a light breeze gently whistling from the west.
It’s not enticing but don’t write it off completely for the whole day, it could all brighten up a whole lot (between showers and there will be showers!), and we should see some ever so slightly larger waves too, maybe just getting into the rideable range.
It’s unlikely to be great but it could just turn out okay this afternoon.

In the meantime it’s a good time to check out those boards and leashes and wetsuits, looking for all those nicks and dents and scratches and gouges.
It might be the time for an upgrade or just a timely repair.
And of course we have all those little bits ‘n bobs that you might need. Those fin screws as well as fins, Black Witch for wetsuit repairs, ding repair kits for your boards, leashes, wax and a Pickle to help get that grimy old wax off!
Or if you’re thinking of a new sled for Summer, we have Channel Island, …Lost, Haydenshapes, Webber, Sol Life, Beach Beat and Hawaiian Soul as well as others! It could just be time for the next step board that you have been promising yourself!
And if you’re feeling a little styleless while you’re there then how a bout a new wardrobe?
Yeah, we have the threads, T’s from Reef, Lost, Captain Fin Co, Brixton, Vans and….. wending their way across the oceans of the world, we have a brand new brand on their way! Hopefully within a few days we will have the finest of the newest of ranges to hit the surf world!
So, we have Ts, we have boardies and walk shorts, we have caps and shoes and flip flops too.
And for the ladies, have you checked out Draw in light? Google it. All hand printed, hand crafted and original at a lesser price than the fabulous boutiques of the rest of the world!
So, drop in on us this holiday weekend and treat yourself to a little upgrade in your surfing equipment!

No, it’s pretty much flat around here this morning too! Flat and choppy. And a bit dull and overcast as well.
But give it a few hours; it is still likely to be flat but it might be brighter, in amongst those power showers that is!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  08:47  (1.6m)                High Tide:  14:47  (6.2m)

Surf Forecast for Sunday 25th May 2014

The light breezes are set to continue, barely noticeable other than their effect on those little waves.
There should be rideable surf today, really small waves just before high tide as those little waves are tripped over by the shallower sandbanks.
It should be a bit brighter here and there today though.
Maybe.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

As we enter the holiday weekend the surf has temporarily disappeared at the same time that the weather has reverted to type.
But that should be just a temporary blip, the weather forecasts are pretty gloomy but then they have been all week and it has been better than good. I reckon that it might just be a bit ‘mixed’ as we go into the weekend but we should see more and more brightness and fewer showers as we go along with nice enough weather to round the weekend off.
The surf forecasts might just be right though.
We are lucky here in that it rarely goes flat, flat for very long but those little waves might just completely disappear if only for a wee while into Friday.
We should be able to glide a longboard again by Friday afternoon though, with those waves slowly increasing in size into the weekend, maxing out at maybe only a couple of feet by Sunday but a fun couple of feet of pleasantly shaped and very surfable stuff!
So, a gliding surf type of weekend, summer surf gently trickling ashore with light winds and small tides. It’s not going to be great for surf and maybe the weather will be a bit showery and mixed but it should just about end up being brighter and more fun than expected!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
