Constantine (0*): Flat
at 6.10 a.m.
It is a little brighter, just a bit, so far this morning but there’s also bit of dampness in the air too, again just a bit.
Those thick and gently rolling clouds are giving some depth to the view out there, creating some distance with the promise of glimpses of lighter skies here and there.
The surf is flat again, or as near as you can get, the odd shin high and bumpy one rolling through just to prove the point.
And the breeze is light, a mild onshore sou’ wester gently crumbling the surface of the sea.
So, a pleasant holiday Sunday to kick back and relax on, a little light music, some pleasant company, a breakfast feast but you’re unlikely to find a decent surf, not just yet. The most we can hope for is a logging glide later, maybe just ahead of high tide?
It should be worth a look.
In the meantime it’s a good time to check out those boards and leashes and wetsuits, looking for all those nicks and dents and scratches and gouges.
It might be the time for an upgrade or just a timely repair.
And of course we have all those little bits ‘n bobs that you might need. Those fin screws as well as fins, Black Witch for wetsuit repairs, ding repair kits for your boards, leashes, wax and a Pickle to help get that grimy old wax off!
Or if you’re thinking of a new sled for Summer, we have Channel Island, …Lost, Haydenshapes, Webber, Sol Life, Beach Beat and Hawaiian Soul as well as others! It could just be time for the next step board that you have been promising yourself!
And if you’re feeling a little styleless while you’re there then how a bout a new wardrobe?
Yeah, we have the threads, T’s from Reef, Lost, Captain Fin Co, Brixton, Vans and….. wending their way across the oceans of the world, we have a brand new brand on their way! Hopefully within a few days we will have the finest of the newest of ranges to hit the surf world!
So, we have Ts, we have boardies and walk shorts, we have caps and shoes and flip flops too.
And for the ladies, have you checked out Draw in light? Google it. All hand printed, hand crafted and original at a lesser price than the fabulous boutiques of the rest of the world!
So, drop in on us this holiday weekend and treat yourself to a little upgrade in your surfing equipment!
No, it is flat again around here this morning,the fishing boat lolling in the bay, laying a pot or two, enjoying the calm.
But for a surfer, well, you’re not going to gets a wave here today, not one worth riding anyway.
The other side is the only chance for a surf today and even that is going to be a bit of a small and weak one at best.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 09:51 (1.4m) High Tide: 15:48 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Holiday Monday 26th May 2014
We should be enjoying a sunnier and much more pleasant day today, a brighter and warmer one but with not much more surf again.
Our best bet for a half decent glide will be in the afternoon on the incoming tide.
We should just about see a foot or hopefully two feet of maybe fun little waves to slide across!
Surf Conditions for the Holiday Weekend
The surf has temporarily disappeared at the same time that the weather has reverted to type this holiday weekend.
The ‘mixed’ weather seems to be very slowly disappearing and we should start to see more and more brightness and fewer showers as we go along with nice enough weather to round the weekend off.
The surf forecasts might just be right though.
We are lucky here in that it rarely goes flat, flat for very long but those little waves might just completely disappear if only for a wee while.
So, a gliding surf type of weekend, summer surf gently trickling ashore with light winds and small tides. It’s not going to be great for surf and maybe the weather will be a bit showery and mixed but it should just about end up being brighter and more fun than expected by Holiday Monday!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
