Constantine (1*): 1 ft & glassy
at 6.45 a.m.
It’s yet another beautiful summer’s morning, that turquoise sea reflecting the deep, deep blue of a clear and bright, tranquil early morning sky.
The sun is bright, the air still and the sea a beautiful glassy sheet of translucent blue but unfortunately as calm as it can be, almost.
There is a foot of glassy little surf occasionally wandering into the bay, the biggest set waves maybe offering some fun to glide across on a longboard but not much more than that. But all the forecast sites are showing a build in swell, well not so much a build but more a strengthening. A double digit wave-period with a couple of feet of height. And on such a gorgeous day as this, that’ll do!
I’m guessing that we’ll be slathering on the sunblock and dragging out the longboards for a very pleasant afternoon’s slide on those tiny waves once that spring tide starts to roll back in.
We have received our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken byCheyne 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 andO&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!!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Nope, it is flat. As flat as flat can be in a very flat sea.
It’s promising to be a stupendous day to grab a paddle and go drifting along the coast but you’re not going to find a surfable wave, not here, not today!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 14th June 2014
Hmm, it is promising to be a lovely Saturday for weather and surf!
And how rare is that!?
We’re not going to see anything big but there should be some very pleasant and fun two to three feet or so of clean and glassy, peeling surf!
The sun is lingering for a while, there should be enough swell to glide across at least and hopefully enough to let the hotshots leap about a lot on those tiny little boards that they now love so much.
So, grab a block of wax, slop the sunblock on and paddle out for some summer fun-in-the-sun!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
High pressure has settled around us and looks like it’s going to make itself at home for at least a wee while.
And so we should be enjoying a lot of bright and pleasant weather well into the weekend and beyond.
Unfortunately the price that we will be paying is the lack of surf. We’ll be lucky to see any waves higher than knee high until the weekend.
Saying that though, when high pressure settles in it doesn’t take too much activity out in the Atlantic to produce half decent waves at our surf breaks locally. So we only need a little disturbance way out there to push some clean little lines our way.
And that’s what could just happen by the weekend!
Give the high pressure a day or two to settle conditions above us and then watch as those little waves trickle in from a long way away.
I think that we could just have some very fun waves towards the end of the week and into the weekend, Friday kicking things off with a very enjoyable one, building to two feet of smooth and quite well travelled little surf to ride.
And suddenly the weekend is starting to look a bit promising too!
A fun and very surfable three feet of swell should be rolling our way through the weekend, the winds set light and the sun set to shine. It is looking very promising indeed!
Don’t expect too much before that though, knee high grovellers are the best that we can hope for over the next day or two! But that bright weather always helps to make it that little more enjoyable doesn’t it!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
