Another beautiful morning has spread itself around us this morning!
It’s a warm and bright, still kind of morning filled with the scent of those wild flowers blossoming along the hedgerows.  And it’s still very quiet around the area, not a soul to be seen at this time of the morning.
The surf?
Nah.
Well, there is a tiny little peak unfolding just inside the rip, that little sand bank promising something pleasant for when some swell arrives. But right now it is barely six inches. Yep, that’s a whole lot bigger than it has been this last few days but it is still barely rideable, even on a longboard!
It might be worth a little look later this afternoon though. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some shin to hip high and glassy little walls by this evening’s high tide, maybe.

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!!

No, it’s as flat as flat can be.
There is that little series of ripples at water’s edge, teasingly twinkling in the early morning sunshine but it is barley the height of the thickness of a longboard.
It’s promising to be SUP central today!

Low Tide:  11:10  (1.7m)                    High Tide:  17:09  (6.7m)

Surf Forecast for Thursday 26th June 2014

We might just see a little bit of surf today!
It is going to be little and it is going to be bitty too but after the last couple of weeks, anything will do!
The weather might start to loose its lusciousness this morning, a more cloud filled sky is expected and we can expect a little bit of dampness around the edges too. But it shouldn’t be too bad and is likely to brighten up eventually anyway.
That surf is likely to be only a foot or maybe two, clean and offshore in the morning, going a little mushier as it builds through the afternoon on the incoming tide.
A couple of feet of weak summer surf will do though!

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

That friendly high pressure system has finally drifted away, to be replaced by some mixed up little fronts ahead of quite a high, low pressure system.
And so the weather is going to change, only a bit and only for a while but those settled days of wall-to-wall sunshine are likely to be over, for a wee while anyway.
The good news is though that there should now be some surf!
And the weather won’t be too bad either.
After a couple of days of mixed up and more damp weather, that sunshine should return gradually over the weekend.
So, the week should wind down with a couple of fete of mixed up, very typical summer type surf, a bit cleaner and sharper in the mornings and evenings, going a little mushier through the afternoons.
That couple of feet of bumpy surf should take us all the way through the weekend, offering some fun little sessions. If you catch just the right stage of the tide where the banks are aligned just right, then you should have a great time gliding along them.
It is still probably going to be more longboard than short board surf but it’s certainly going to be better than it has been!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
