Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 ft and blown out
at 6.20 a.m.
It’s another blowy one again this morning, that gusting north westerly carrying some cold enough air this early in the day.
There are lumpy grey/blue waves bouncing into the bay, some of them reluctant to break, others as keen as can be. But it’s really a mixed up mess of surf that’s probably best avoid today.
The weather is trying to brighten, those big, dark clouds gradually whitening and becoming fluffier. And the calmer, sunnier more Summery weather should win out as the day goes on, those short, sharp and intense showers still loitering around the place though!
It’s another day for us to be clearing some space in the shop, ready to receive more wetsuits, more accessories, more everything really in readiness for a hopefully busy bank holiday at the end of the month which usually gently kicks off our busier season.
Because of that we should have some odds and ends that will need to be cleared out at giveaway prices over the next week or two, so it could just be worth dropping in on us if you’re around the area!
Also, we have been rebuilding our shop team here for the 2014 season and it’s all going well with a few new characters to help you find what you’re looking for.
But we are still looking for that all important but, so far, elusive person to fill the role of team leader! Someone with just a bit more, an interested and interesting person, capable of shepherding us all along. Great with customers, great with staff, understanding of the Groms and with an eye for style. A knowledge of how a wetsuit should fit and what fins do what for a surfboard would be useful, an ability to get on with everyone more vital.

Harlyn (0*): 1 ft and choppy
No, there’s not much happening around here this morning; the surf is small, the wind is strong and it is all a bit windswept and choppy.
The wind is forecast to gradually ease up but it is still going to be north westerly which is straight onshore here. And so to is likely to be choppy and wishy washy all day long. Still, small and onshore Harlyn surf can be fun!
The groms love launching off those bouncy ramps!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:34 (1.2m) High Tide: 17:25 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 14th May 2014
A bright and breezy day awaits us, the wind having dropped in strength even though continuing to drift in from the north west, onshore all along this coast.
We should be in for a fabulously sunny day but with maybe not that much clean surf again. The swell is likely to have dropped away, a couple of feet of mixed up stuff being the best that we can hope for down in the bay.
With the tides starting to open up a bit more we might expect a slight build in surf on the afternoon tide but it’s unlikely to amount to much and we are going to have to find some rocky points and low headlands to hide behind as well to get some cleaner waves.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The winds are going to be having an effect on the surf all through the coming week, those hard blowing west and sou’ west winds having slipped to the north, that chill direction that ruins the surf all along this coast.
And so a blustery and blowy week kicks off the week with the swell gradually dropping away as we go along. Messy and out of control surf conditions are expected well into midweek when the wind should weaken if not change direction.
You know all those jobs that didn’t get done while we enjoyed that seemingly endless run off great surf a wee while ago?
Well, they can be done now!
And then we should be in for some mild and pleasant, bright and cheery weather, culminating in a day of Summer for Friday!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
