A crisp and clear morning is shimmering around us this morning, the surf maybe not as an already more than half-full car park would have liked but still a half decent couple to three feet.
Yep, it is an absolutely beautiful day with the sun shining in a blue, blue sky, the breathless breeze drifting offshore against the glass of that rolling little swell and the promise of more to come.
I would suggest that you might just want to grab some sunblock and your favourite surfboard and slip down to your chosen surf break to slide a few!

We have received 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 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

IMG_1312

It is pretty flat around here again today but not completely mirror like, not quite.
There’s maybe the odd six inch to one foot wave gliding in a few hours ahead of high water and so you could maybe get a superlong board gliding but the other side is going to be good soon enough, that’s the place to aim for for a surf today!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  15:40  (1.1m)                 High Tide:  09:16  (7.1m)

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 18th June 2014

It’s promising to be another bright and cheery day with light offshore breezes but maybe an even smaller swell.
Those little waves are likely to be no more than a foot or two today and so you’re going to have to be on it to get the best out of the surf today!
As the tide moves over those deep bits between sandbanks the surf is likely to disappear almost completely but as the shallow sand is reached then there should be some glideable little waves tripping off those sandbanks.
It could just end up being fun if you get the right place at the right time with the right board!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

That high pressure system looks like it’s quite happy to continue to straddle us for the next few days at least, providing more calm and settled conditions for the foreseeable!
The surf is likely to remain small, especially as those already high low pressure systems fill out on their approach.
But it shouldn’t go flat, not just yet anyway.
The week is likely to start off continuing the weekend’s theme of bright sunshine and smallish but very pleasant surf, the breezes drifting offshore through the mornings maybe slipping onshore as the land warms through the afternoons, glassing off in the evenings.
Yep, it’s looking like another very pleasant week of sun and surf ahead of us but make sure that the longboard is to hand, we might be needing it by midweek!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
