Constantine (0*): Flat
at 6.20 a.m.
And another clear skied, bright and cheery morning is upon us, a fresh north easterly breeze just taking the edge of an otherwise pleasantly mild start to the longest day of this year.
The surf though, well, the surf is flat again today.
As flat as flat can be. And with not much sign of anything on the horizon to make us think that there might be any surf anytime soon!
And so our minds drift to alternative sources of fun.
Last night’s Midsummer Party at Prideaux Place in Padstow was rocking again, raising large amounts of money for local charities. Johnny Cowling was on form, I think a band does him well? And the Rolling Zones. Well, sometimes you just gotta get the dancing shoes on!
And today sees the St. Merry Steam & Vintage Rally. A new venue (a field on the way down to Constantine) but the same massive collection of fascinating vehicles and more, as well as the dancing diggers (thought that I saw a couple of them in Padstow last night as well!).
And there’s loads of other stuff on the go this weekend to keep the slightly frustrated surfer dudes distracted.
Or there’s always the opportunity to go SUP?
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 weekend if you’re around the area!!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Nope, it’s ‘as flat as’ again today. And that north easterly isn’t being very kind to it either, blowing straight onshore and creating a little frothy slop effect.
Stll, ‘Food for Thought’ should be open in a minute and Chris will have a few SUPs on the go at the Surf School too.
Could be a plan?
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Sunday 22nd June 2014
Really? Do you think so?
No, it is looking flat again.
Maybe flat with a couple of ripples to tempt you in on a hugely long, longboard. But even then you’re likely to be nothing more than frustrated if you’re trying to surf!
Swim, paddle, lounge around, it’s going to be great for all of those things and more with another fabulous day of sunshine and calmness ahead of us but there ain’t gonna be no surf!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
That high pressure system looks like it’s quite happy to continue to straddle us for some time to come, 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, probably going completely flat throughout the weekend. Especially as those already high low pressure systems are filling out as they approach.
We will be lucky to find any waves to ride this weekend, maybe into the start of next week or maybe even longer!
Longboards and SUPs are suddenly in demand as these calm conditions retain control, our only hope being that it is so calm that any activity out in the Atlantic will produce some swell.
It is going to be a period of beautiful weather but very little in the way of surf!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
