Ah, it’s a beautiful morning following on to a beautiful evening.
But the surf is flat right now.
There’s that light haze shimmering out to the Quies with a massive Harvest Moon loitering over the Reef, highlighting a fishing boat as it meanders amongst the shoals. There are a lot of fish out there right now as well, those tight packed groups flitting away as you stroke past them.
But at high tide there is no surf at all. There should be some shin to knee-high ticklers as the tide drops off but just for a moment and just a bit too small maybe.
Still, it is nice just to get in when conditions are like this!

Thanks to all the guys for last night! We had a neat little gathering down in the bay to end our busy season and to say thanks to the best staff and friends. We are so lucky to have the best customers and that attracts the best staff!
And off most of them now go to colleges and unis near and far, others to airports following their own endless summers and one or two embarking on their new careers. New relationships lie ahead of them and adventure waits around every corner, trials and tribulations too I’m sure but that will make them stronger.
We’re rolling into a quarter of a century of having the shop next year so you might just want to make a gap in your busy schedules for a bit of a mega gathering?

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 10th September 2014

I can’t see any change happening just yet.
That bright sky seems happy to stay settled over us, the breeze is set light and offshore and we probably won’t be seeing any swell off that low pressure that is developing down to the south west just yet.
Or will we?

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

It’s promising to be another beautiful and sun filled, bright and cheerful week but with little in the way of surf to be had, at least to start with.
Light offshores are forecast for pretty much the entire week, along with those big blue skies and enough sunshine to keep everybody happy.
But we will be lucky to see a wave break over knee-high, there are no swell generators out in the Atlantic, not yet anyway. Autumn is knocking on our door though and with its arrival there should be loads of surf yet to come.
Keep your eyes on that low pressure system which is trying to develop down in Biscay. That could be sending some very pleasant waves our way before week’s end – if it continues to deepen!
In the meantime, let’s enjoy this wonderful weather and drag those logs down for a longboard slide across any tiddlers that do decide to break!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
