Constantine (3*):  2 to 3 feet

A calmer, brighter morning is quietly lighting up the bay for us this morning, a light south easterly breeze drifting offshore to meet a couple of feet and occasionally bigger of smooth and glassy little surf.
The sky is bright, the birdsong is loud and the waves are peeling ashore.
So it’s all looking good for a pleasant day at the beach!

You might have seen on Facebook that we are recruiting for staff, particularly someone with a view to taking on the management of the store. If you haven’t, well we are looking for a keen and enthusiastic, conscientious person, preferably from a fast moving retail background that can bring those dynamics to bear in the store.
This job has huge opportunities but also carries its own responsibilities making it suitable as a ‘next step’ opportunity maybe for someone already on a management path.
Anyway, if you’re interested, have a look on the shop FB page, there’s an essay covering what we are looking for!
We are also re-building our summer team this year too, so all you little shop monkies can give me a shout to let me know whether you’re coming back this year!
As well as that we are looking for a part-time warehouse person, someone to lift boxes, hang wetsuits, stack surfboards in our fabulously damp and cold, spider infested shed.
But the hours can be to suit yourself (as long as our deliveries are whisked away and stock is put on our shelve you could do it at midnight if you’d rather!
So, if any of these positions are of interest, drop a mail to [email protected] letting me know what appeals!


Harlyn (1*):  1 foot  

It’s all quiet at Harlyn this morning, that light breeze drifting across the occasional knee to hip high, high tide surf, all beneath a clear pale blue sky.
The other side has all the surf today but it is, as always, quite beautiful here today!  


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  12:56  (0.9m)              High Tide:  18:46  (7.0m)



Surf Forecast for Saturday 6th April 2019  

The offshore breezes are likely to be drifting more easterly today as that same couple to three feet of smooth swell continues to glide our way.
We might see a few April showers but we should enjoy some brightness too as those glassy waves unfold.  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

Light offshore, easterly, breezes are going to be settling over us for the foreseeable, providing beautifully smooth sea conditions for all those frothing Groms who will be kicking down the school gates this weekend!
Yep, the Easter school holidays are upon us and our winter-quiet and dormant bays are going to be shaken into a new season soon enough, the lifeguards already purring into action, ready to keep an eye on the strays while the pubs and restaurants and guest houses and businesses are all busy painting and sweeping and dusting and cleaning.
There’s always an air of expectancy at this time of year as the first real wave of visitors wash our way.
And what a welcome they should enjoy this weekend with small but perfectly shaped little waves peeling our way for a good few days to come!
The weather might live up to its ‘April showers’ tradition but we should also enjoy plenty of bright and pleasant suff in amongst it all as well!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
