Surf Report for Sunday 17th May 2015

Constantine (2*):  2 to 4 feet

at 6.45 a.m:

A fairly light but steady westerly wind is pushing into the bay this morning, slopping up the inconsistent surf.
There is some shape off the Reef, that lefthander spreading into the bay and looking pretty rideable as it does so although there is a long wait for those bigger ones. It’s a couple of feet but with much bigger sets after a long wait.
And there are plenty of lumps and bumps to deal with, that deep blue sea feeling the effects of the wind.
Saying that, the tide is halfway out on the drop and so it could improve a lot on this afternoon’s tide, if the wind doesn’t strengthen too much.
Otherwise it’s a fairly overcast morning, a silver sky with blue streaks maybe promising some brighter stuff soon enough.

We have a couple of jobs going her at Constantinesurf!
First we are looking for someone to take on the admin of our website.
This entails; adding product to the site, collating imagery, product descriptions, measuring response and feedback, processing and overseeing product dispatch, processing payments, administering stock levels and being responsible for the entire web operation. Coding skills and technical site programming knowledge is not necessary but at least a basic familiarity with computers obviously is.
This is envisaged as a full time and permanent, salaried position although we would be open to the right person starting part-time and building it up. This could be a fantastic opportunity for that right person who we hope will go on to build up a completely separate arm to the business.
We are also looking for a store supervisor/assistant manager to be involved with the day-to-day running of the shop. Again, this is a full time and permanent year-round, salaried position. We would like to find someone with that mix of previous retail experience, a love and knowledge of all things surfy and at least a basic understanding of how a wetsuit should fit. Training will also be provided though.
So if you fancy it or know of someone that would be suitable address a CV to [email protected].

Harlyn (2*):  2 to 3 feet

IMG_5068

It is very to the other side around here this morning, that wind pushing almost straight into the bay and a couple to three feet of bumpy and crumbly wave washing in.
There’s probably even more of a wait for those sets but they do look half decent when they arrive.
There’s half a dozen out already and they are catching a few, the suckiness and hollowness of lower tide Harlyn at least adding some thickness to it.
The wind is forecast to slip further south westerly on this afternoon’s incoming tide and so it could improve then.
In the meantime there are waves and it looks like fun!

Surf Forecast for Monday 189th May 2015

Those onshore winds are going to take the edge off the two to three foot swell that is likely to continue rolling our way.
It should be a bright enough day but might take a while to shake off the early cloud cover.
Yep, a couple of feet of fun but messy stuff is all that we can hope for today!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

It looks as though early summer doldrums might hit us this week with small localised swells washing in along with that chilling north westerly wind.
At least there will be rideable waves all week but they are likely to be in the small and choppy range, allowing some great air ramps for the groms and lighter footed aerialists but maybe frustrating the carvers and chargers.
The weather is likely to be bright enough, that wind holding down the temperatures which should be very pleasant out of the wind.
So,it looks like it could be me to think about getting the short and stubby fish like boards out and going for a skate on those little, bumpy waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
