‘Hard the wind blows and high the waves roll!’
Well, maybe not the last bit but it is really very gusty out there this morning.
It’s a wet ’n windy one with a strengthening sou’ wester blowing itself into a bit of a frenzy right now.
The surf however is barely three feet, a messed up, choppy and mushy three feet as well.
No, it’s all a bit of a mess here this morning, thank goodness for Harlyn, it should be offshore over there so let’s go look see……
If you are around this weekend then it might be worth calling in to see us!
We have received lots of new deliveries and are unloading Patagonia and Captain Fin Co, O & E, FCS, Futures and all sorts of everything from surfboards and wetsuits to environmentally considered clothing and accessories and hardware.
And we still have a good few bargain wetsuits to clear to make space for all the new stuff! There’s £50 off many wetsuits and some are HALF PRICE!
Harlyn (3*): 1 to 2 feet
The wind is offshore and not too strong, yet.
But the surf is quite small, barely a foot or two of snappy and clean little peaks are showing but there’s nothing too exciting out there.
With this wind starting to blow itself into a hooley from the south west, I would imagine that the surf should build by the hour as we go through the day, that wind pushing the swell our way.
Yep, it is the place to be today. Let’s hope that the wind doesn’t pick up too much!

Surf Forecast for Sunday 29th March 2015
Strong winds are set to blow while big waves will assault the coastline.
With the kids’ school holidays under way there is likely to be a lot of interest in getting in the sea but it will be worth just being a little cautious.
Pick the sheltered breaks and take it easy there too. Those guys that are out the back and flying have generally been surfing these breaks daily for a long time and are (or should be!)well practised in them.
So Harlyn is going to be our little haven in these conditions but it is likely to be quite sizeable there too today.
I think that we can expect a solid four to five feet or bigger swells pushing into the bay all day with those strong winds blowing more across the bay than yesterday.
Yep, we can expect a whole heap of sand-dredging and windswept barrels.
Winter is having a last stamp of it’s chilly foot!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We are likely to be in for a bit of a stormy weekend this weekend but with loads of surf and that wind is finally veering away from those cold and annoying north westerlies and settling to the south west bringing milder but damper, more swell-supporting winds our way.
We can expect gale force, south westerly winds on Saturday morning, a swell building but stormy wind that is likely to blow some heavy squalls on to us.
And that is going to set the weekend up.
Six foot plus swells are going to be building, getting bigger all through the weekend, the winds blowing in from the west, veering between north westerly (Boo!) and the south westerly (Yay!).
So it is going to be weekend of jumping about in an effort to find the best waves. The south coast will have moments of greatness but so will some of the north coast’s sheltered spots!
But there will be waves, sometimes getting real big and so it is going to be a case of watching and waiting and then getting to the right place at the right time to get the very best out of it all.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
