The wind is howling in again this morning, a hedge-shaking storm of a wind blasting its way in from the north west, churning the mixed up and angry sea into a growling mess of waves.
There is more than a hint of winter out there this morning, that wind gnawing and biting while the sea blasts the sand. And watch out for those squalls, they are firing stinging and biting shards of rain around the place.
And it looks like it’s in for the day, so the south coast is the place to aim if you’re looking for some rideable surf. There should be enough surf there to make the journey well worthwhile.

We are looking for a store supervisor/assistant manager to be involved with the day-to-day running of the shop.
This is a full time and permanent year-round, salaried position.
We would like to find someone with that mix of previous retail experience, a love and knowledge of all things surfy and at least a basic understanding of how a wetsuit should fit. Training will also be provided though.
So if you fancy it or know of someone that would be suitable address a CV to [email protected].

It is pretty stormy around here this morning too!
Those north westerly squalls are driving into the bay, full of stinging and piercing rain, driving across the three to four feet of deep blue but junked out and messed up surf.
It’s not a relaxing place to be this morning but, as always, it has another kind of beauty to it all this morning!
But you wouldn’t want to go surfing here either, not today!

Surf Forecast for Wednesday 20th May 2015

The wind should be easing by today, staying north westerly and so still keeping the air cold in spite of the brighter sunshine but it should be much calmer than the last few days.
The surf is likely to be sloppy and choppy still though, that wind still strong enough to make a mess of the three feet or so of short period, localised swell.
If the south coast has enough size to it then that will be the place to go today again but it could be too small.
But this coast is likely to be blown out pretty much all day.

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

Stormy conditions are continuing to plague us this week, those howling north westerly winds destroying the weak and localised but quite big swells.
The weather is likely to be bright enough in between the squalls, that wind holding down the temperatures which could be very pleasant out of the wind but not very summer-like when it gusts.
The wind should ease through midweek but is likely to remain stubbornly from the north westerly, onshore and cold!
Our best chance of surfing clean waves this week is by journeying over to the far coast – if it’s big enough over there!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
