It’s a mild and calm, lazy Sunday morning with barely a breeze drifting across the bay.
The surf is small right now, a foot or two of slow moving glass waves tumbling ashore. But that will change. it should double in size by early afternoon and double that by evening.
We hope!
In the meantime there are some shimmering glass waves trickling in, unaffected by the almost still southerly breeze, perfect for a longboard glide while waiting for it all to build!

If you’re around the area this weekend enjoying the winter beauty of our bays and coves, then it might be worth popping into the shop and saying hi!  Our super duper 20% off everything sale might have finished (and a massive thanks to all of you who got involved with that!) but we still plan to have some surprising POP UP SALES on individual items!  Watch out on our social media pages and on here too, or just pop in out of the cold.  #makingitupaswegoalong #alwaysloveawinterbargain #gosurfnow

It’s pretty much flat around here this morning with only occasionally a foot or so of sheet glass snappers hitting the sand.
The swell is expected to build as the day goes on but even so, it’s the other side that will have all the surf today!

Surf Forecast for Monday 18th January 2016

We are expecting a three foot swell to be running into the bays and coves all along the coast today, the wind a steady south easterly, offshore, starting out quiet fresh but easing off as the day rolls along.
It could just be fun today!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

We should be in for at least a little respite from those wet ’n windy storms that seem to have been blowing hard all winter but make the most of it, we will be seeing more onshores and wetness soon enough!
In the meantime though, we should start the week with a pleasant and steady three feet of swell spinning off some three to four feet of surf at our favourite surf spots, the wind starting out fresh and offshore but easing in strength quite quickly.
Those calmer conditions should last well into midweek, the wind backing to the south west but not blowing anywhere near as hard as it has been.
Harlyn is likely to be the spot again by midweek but not that sandspitting and grinding, heaviness that we have seen so much of, we can expect to see the other face of Harlyn this week, something a bit more relaxed and fun even!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
