A bright ‘n breezy morning is starting our day off, busy birdsong echoing from the hedgerows, that south westerly wind light but strong enough to more than ruffle the sea’s surface.
Right now it’s flat, flat and a little choppy too!
But that should change soon enough, the forecasts are all showing a gradual increase in swell, not to anything much more than knee to hip high but that will do on yet another mainly blue sky kind of day.
So, a sloppy and small surf might be on for later but in the meantime there’s not much happening at all!

Thanks for all your comments regarding our re-vamped site and the images we are running each day. It’s obviously a work in progress but we’re getting there! Thanks to Mark at MiHi Digital too, a guiding hand when others had let us down.
Here’s another view of this morning’s beach scene for you:

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

It’s as flat as again around here this morning, that offshore, south westerly wind having a smoothing effect, making for clean and sharp conditions but the surf is still flat!
It might be one of those days to hook up with Chris at Harlyn Surf School for a lesson in SUPing, or maybe just rent a board and go for a paddle. That wind is quite fresh and offshore here though, so take it a bit easy if you do go for a paddle and just remember the return trip!

Low Tide:  15:59  (2.0m)             High Tide:  09:43  (6.4m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 4th July 2014

Low pressure will be nudging us today, a windblown three feet of surf distracting us from the breaking weather.
We can expect that kind of rolling surf to be lightly blown ashore by a steady south westerly wind and there might even be some little waves swinging all the way around and into Harlyn too. That is just a ‘maybe’, although if it does it would be really clean, a south westerly wind being offshore there.
But we are more likely to be enjoying a blustery three feet of maybe quite mushy surf at any of our main surf breaks.
The weather is likely to deteriorate at least a little as that low pressure system bounces across us but hopefully that should scoot by pretty quickly!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

That friendly high pressure system that has been loitering above us for so long has finally drifted away, a fairly deep low pressure system dropping down from the north west to replace it and also throw some more unsettled weather our way.
That low pressure is filling as it approaches but some of the swell generated by it when it was deeper should already be on its way to us.
We can expect a bumpy and lumpy three feet or so of mixed up swell through Friday, getting a couple of feet bigger for Saturday and staying in the head high range as the weekend winds down.
The wind is of course going to be mainly onshore throughout the weekend, a south westerly going more westerly steady blow, maybe ending up swinging to the north west by Sunday evening and into Monday morning.
So, a blustery and sometimes damp weekend awaits but there should be enough fine weather to keep most of our visitors happy while the surf rolls in to keep everyone with a surfboard busy enough!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
