A fabulously calm and peaceful morning is spreading across the coast, yet another golden sunburst dawn bursting over the other horizon. The wind is breathless so far, a light offshore predicted for later, the surf small but silky smooth and immaculate, a light frost crumbling the foreshore. There is a real small swell running through this morning but if you have the patience it is worth the ten minute or longer wait for those sets, they are chest high and bigger and are just reeling off from the usual breaks. You do have to wait for them but they are as pretty as you could hope for when they arrive (and you’re probably going to be too far inside or outside when they do! Or is that just me?). It’s one of those days when all that hipster stuff, longer or super short but thicker and wider boards do start to make some kind of sense. Those waves are made for gliding!
If you are tempted over here to enjoy these wonderful conditions this weekend, then you might want to call in to the shop – we are just about to clear a whole bunch of winter stock in readiness for the imminent arrival of Spring (ever the optimists!!). So, we have a whole bunch of surfboards (Lost, Channel Islands, Sol Life and others), wetsuits (XCEL, O’Neill, Alder and Quikky) as well as loads of other stuff that we are going to need to offer at giveaway prices!

It is tiny over here this morning, shin to knee high at the most but glassy and lazy looking. It is still wishy washy here after a week or more of onshores but looking more attractive than it has been looking as well.
Saying that, the other side is the place to go for a surf today, it is only small over there but way bigger than here and with beautiful conditions.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:07 (1.4m) High Tide: 20:01 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 9th February 2015
And more of the same again, again!
We are likely to be seeing only tiny waves today, surfable and fun on the right kind of board with super calm conditions and still a double digit wave-period to that real small swell.
Mini mali-booby’s should kick in with the tide, offering lots of gliding fun under that pale and shiny midwinter sunshine.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A beautiful week lies ahead of us as high pressure continues to control our weather system.
Calm, bright and still conditions are set as we go into another week of light offshores and small but well travelled and perfectly shaped little swells.
Those frosty mornings should quickly give way to bright and sunny days as the days start to open, those afterwork (school and college) sessions starting to be tempting.
So, get the gliding boards out, longboards or fish, whichever floats your winter desire and pick your tide times, the go surf!
Make sure your wetsuit is good though, that water temperature is properly midwinter cold now!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
