It’s a bright, bright, bright, sunshiny day!
Thanks to @louiseminchin for putting that little sound clip into my brain this morning to play on repeat for how long!
But it really is a beaut of a start to the day.
The sky is as blue as blue can be, reflected on that deeper blue sea with those golden sands adding some contrast to the green, green fields. The breeze is gentle, no more than a breath whispering offshore.
The surf?
Well, there ain’t much. The odd little shin to knee high wall is glistening its way to the beach, the tide a couple of hours on its way to high, so you have to think that what little swell there is should be showing itself about now.
You’re going to have to be ‘on it’ today to get a surf in, although with a bit of watching and waiting you should just about find a longboardy glide somewhere. I could just see that light trail of whitewater behind the rocks on the other side, showing that there is probably a knee high peeler to be ridden over there.
Or it could be a good day to drag out the SUP and have a little paddle down the coast?
We are thinking of getting some SUPs in to hire out and maybe sell, so what’s your opinion?
Another way to enjoy those summer doldrums?  Or an easier haven for oldies?  Let us know what you think at [email protected]

Last night’s sunset was another beaut! How many sunset pics do we have and yet they are all magical!

We have received our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken by Cheyne and put together by those fine artisans at Pukas in Spain (they’re the guys that make boards for Mr Gabriel Medina) and they’re on the rails now!
Actually we have loads of new stuff hanging on the rails ready for this Summer’s visitors:
Summer wetsuits from O’Neill, Xcel and Alder are hanging alongside surf accessories from FCS and O&E while Reef flip flops are sat next to Vans beach and skate shoes. The newly launched Vissla range of clothes are alongside rails of Brixton Mfg, Captain Fin Co, Reef, Lost, Coastees and the newly inPassenger range as well as our our own Shop logo’d garments.
We have sunglasses from Bolle, Ray Ban and now the brand new dBlanc (and how great are they!) as well as EightyEight and Vision.
Time for a new board for Summer?
Then take your pick from our wide range of boards. We have longboards, short board, fun boards, soft boards, finless boards and all sorts! Al Merrick, Haydenshapes, Meyerhoffer, Sol Life, …Lost, Beach Beat, Hawaiian Soul and Webber, we should have something to suit!
And if we haven’t got it, we can get it!
So, drop in on us this week if you’re around the area!!

It is as flat as flat can be around here this morning!
That breeze, as gentle as it is, is still putting a little ruffle on that otherwise smooth and glasslike surface.
Yep, it’s another SUP spot today!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 18th June 2014

Another golden day of sun and calmness!
Blue, blue skies and a golden sun are going to continue to brighten our day but there’s not likely to be much surf to ride!
The best that we can hope for is a shin to knee high glider on the shallowest bits of the bays at those optimum moments of tide.
Good luck!

Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

That high pressure system looks like it’s quite happy to continue to straddle us for the next few days at least, maybe shuffling to the west just a little but still providing more calm and settled conditions for the foreseeable!
The surf is likely to remain small at best, especially as those already high low pressure systems fill out on their approach.
But it shouldn’t go completely flat, well, not that flat and not for long if it does.
The week started off continuing the weekend’s theme of bright sunshine and smallish but very pleasant surf and that’s the way it’s likely to continue; tiny surf lapping into the bays with the breezes drifting offshore through the mornings maybe slipping onshore as the land warms through the afternoons, glassing off in the evenings.
There should be rideable surf when those little swell lines hit shallow lumps of sand or rock creating little peelers to glide upon. But that’s probably as much as we can hope for for the next week or so!
The Glastonbury crowd should be looking forward to a sun-basking weekend of it too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
