Last night’s downpours are gradually moving on to please gardeners and farmers elsewhere, leaving a bright and dry day for the rest of us to enjoy.
The wind is light, the sky is brightening and the surf is rolling into the bay.
There’s a half decent two to three feet of bumpy and a little sloppy surf breaking in the usual spots half an hour ahead of high tide. A fun wave is out there, big enough to work on, small enough to keep the mini-groms and visitors happy.
We should be enjoying a lovely, bright and sunny day with enough surf to keep everyone happy!
So, wax it up, grab some sunblock and have great day in the bay!

We have now received our new stock of Coastees Ts, depicting our local bays as well as receiving 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 all 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!!

It’s flat again around here this morning.
You can see little lines spreading into the bay but they’re not big enough to break. It could be another great day to go for a SUP round the bay, or paddle out for a spot of fishing bt you’re not going to catch much of a wave here today!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:13  (1.4m)               High Tide:  19:10  (7.0m)

Surf Forecast for Sunday 29th June 2014

It is looking like another fabulous day ahead of us today!
The forecasts are showing plenty of bright and cheerful sunshine with very light winds and enough surf to keep most of us happy.
We can expect a couple of feet of maybe a little wishy washy and bumpy surf, cleaner earlier and later, being mixed up by the expected sea breezes that should kick in as the land warms up through middayish.
It’s probably going to be summery surf, more suited to a longboard or fish but you should be able to just about enjoy a regular shortboard outing too, if you’re quick enough.

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

That friendly high pressure system that parked itself over us for the last week or two 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 should eventually end up being not too bad either.
After a day or two more of mixed up and more damp weather, that sunshine should return gradually over the weekend, brightening quite nicely through Saturday into Sunday.
So, the week should wind down with a couple of feet 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 and maybe improving considerably, along with the weather, by Sunday afternoon.
If you catch just the right stage of the tide where the banks are aligned just so, 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 weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
