Constantine (1*): Flat to 1 ft
at 6.15 a.m.
That’s one broody sky out there this morning, a brisk easterly wind whisking dust and sand across the beachhead while the crows and jackdaws snap sharply at each other.
Yep, it’s an atmospheric one but still with barely any surf.
Conditions are sharp and clean and occasionally, very occasionally, a small, very small but peeling and reeling little one footer is briskly spinning off at high tide. Maybe that’s a sign of something brewing?
There is a small low pressure system out there and that’s what will produce some ‘mixed’ weather this next couple of days and that should spin a little swell our way. Let’s hope that these little curlers that are fighting their way against that gusting offshore are the start of something better!
But I’m guessing that we won’t see much until this afternoon’s tide when the wind is likely to switch onshore (south westerly) which will help blow those waves in.
Let’s wait and see!
We have now received our new stock of Coastees Ts, depicting our local bays as well as receiving our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken by Cheyne and put together by those fine artisans at Pukas in Spain (they’re the guys that make boards for Mr Gabriel Medina) and they’re all on the rails now!
Actually we have loads of new stuff hanging on the rails ready for this Summer’s visitors:
Summer wetsuits from O’Neill, Xcel and Alder are hanging alongside surf accessories from FCS and O&E while Reef flip flops are sat next to Vans beach and skate shoes. The newly launched Vissla range of clothes are alongside rails of Brixton Mfg, Captain Fin Co, Reef, Lost, Coastees and the newly inPassenger range as well as our our own Shop logo’d garments.
We have sunglasses from Bolle, Ray Ban and now the brand new dBlanc (and how great are they!) as well as EightyEight and Vision.
Time for a new board for Summer?
Then take your pick from our wide range of boards. We have longboards, short board, fun boards, soft boards, finless boards and all sorts! Al Merrick, Haydenshapes, Meyerhoffer, Sol Life, …Lost, Beach Beat, Hawaiian Soul and Webber, we should have something to suit!
And if we haven’t got it, we can get it!
So, drop in on us this week if you’re around the area!!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Ah, it is as flat as flat can be around here this morning. A turquoise lagoon stretching to the horizon, smoothed by that easterly wind.
We’re not going to get any surf here today again, not here. There might be a tiny one on the other side later but that’s only a maybe too.
It might even be a bit too windy to go SUPing too.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:55 (1.5m) High Tide: 17:52 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 27th June 2014
We should see some waves today at last!
Maybe windy and bumpy and not that big waves but surfable waves nevertheless.
The wind is forecast to gust in from the south west helping to push a three foot or so swell from that weak depression that’s lounging around out there.
Most of our main surf breaks should be showing a bumpy and maybe a little sloppy three feet of surfable surf.
Which will be better than it has been!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
That friendly high pressure system that parked itself over us for the last week or two has finally drifted away, to be replaced by some mixed up little fronts ahead of quite a high, low pressure system.
And so the weather is going to change, only a bit and only for a while but those settled days of wall-to-wall sunshine are likely to be over, for a wee while anyway.
The good news is though that there should now be some surf!
And the weather won’t be too bad either.
After a couple of days of mixed up and more damp weather, that sunshine should return gradually over the weekend.
So, the week should wind down with a couple of feet of mixed up, very typical summer type surf, a bit cleaner and sharper in the mornings and evenings, going a little mushier through the afternoons.
That couple of feet of bumpy surf should take us all the way through the weekend, offering some fun little sessions. If you catch just the right stage of the tide where the banks are aligned just so, then you should have a great time gliding along them.
It is still probably going to be more longboard than short board surf but it’s certainly going to be better than it has been!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
