Constantine (1*):  3 feet

at 7.40 a.m.

It’s another dull and dreary start to the day, a blur of damp greyness surrounding us and covering us.
But it is also mild and strangely cosy, a snuggly wet morning, one of those memory making ones if you are cosying up to the right one on an early morning wander.
But the surf isn’t all that either, a few feet, maybe three and still sloppy, choppy and all mixed up.
The weather is likely to improve by lunchtime but the surf is probably going to be pretty much the same all day, although that brightness does usually make it look a bit better at least!
Get the waterproofs on if you’re venturing out there this morning!

We have just received our main delivery of O’Neill winter wetsuits and how gorgeous are they! So, if you’re looking to be warm and cosy this winter then drop in on us, we will probably have something to your liking!
By the way, don’t forget that we are clearing out loads of summer wetsuits. We have rails of them from generally around 30, 40, and even 50% off, starting from £50.
That’s Xcel, O’Neill and Alder with only one or two quikky suits left.
So, if you’re around the area this week, it might just be worth having a little look-see!
And finally, remember we were saying that Matt Biolos was in Europe doing a few boards and we took a couple of custom orders (which incidentally are en route to our little shop right now!)? Well, check these beauties out, they’re the leftovers, the unchosen ones, the last of a beautiful batch:

Harlyn (2*):  2 feet

IMG_2596

There’s a couple of feet of fun looking if a little bumpy and fattish grey waves pushing into the bay just after high tide this morning, not great but surfable and fun looking, especially for the half termers.
It will probably deteriorate at least a little as the tide recedes but could get fun again this afternoon as that tide returns and maybe the sky brightens, well, maybe a little.
Yeah, don’t write it off, it could be somewhere to have fun surf this afternoon.

Surf Forecast for Saturday 24th October 2014

The wind is likely to have settled to the south west, steady but not too strong, just supporting that three foolish swell.  There should be enough swell around to allow that decision whether to surf a bit bigger but bumpier Constantine side or cleaner but way smaller Harlyn.  It’s always nice to have a choice!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

We have been enjoying another week of pumping waves, maybe a little tainted by those wandering winds but fun nevertheless.
Those swells are likely to weaken as the week winds down, the wind predicted to slide more to the south west and lighten if just a little as we go into the weekend.
And so, as always, it’s down to the wind to determine where and if the waves will break.
Around here it’s pretty easy to determine; when it’s big and south westerly then Harlyn is our spot, if the wind slides too far westerly or even north westerly then the far coast is the place to aim for but if the wind is from the south, through east all the way to north, then our main beaches open up.
After saying all that, it still does look like a Harlyn weekend ahead with south westerlies steadily pushing in a rolling three to four foot swell.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
