Constantine (3*): 3 – 4 ft
It’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen it this clean around here!
There’s a half decent three to four foot swell rolling in against a light south easterly, offshore breeze. The waves are fairly close together but the sets are a way apart and look like they are worth the wait.
Those peaks are standing tall before curling and peeling away, breathing spray as they pinch over the sandbars.
It’s going to be interesting to see what shape the sandbars are in after months of storms battering the bays, but it does look promising so far!
So, when’s the best time to get in on a fairly overcast and otherwise grey kind of day? Anytime.
But it would be a shame to miss it!
We might very well (will!) lose our site for at least some time today and maybe tomorrow but it should be worth it!
Watch this space!
And we are still looking for staff, part time, full time, shop staff, a web person and maybe a warehouse (shed!) person. Send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Rhys Barfield is off to Ecuador at the end of the month for the ISA World Junior Championships and the groms are desperately trying to raise the funds necessary to get them there without bankrupting their mums and dads.
Since the mega surf companies aren’t yet embarrassed enough to provide any support for the U.K. Groms, it’s down to everyone else to do it! So go to www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-teamgb and pay a little back to the kids!
Here’s a clip of Rhys while in Australia a week or two ago…
Harlyn (3*): 1 – 2ft
It’s as pretty as a picture around here this morning, maybe a dark and overcast picture but pleasant nonetheless.
In the meantime the other side is the place to be.

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 25th March 2014
In comes another swell, a thumping, bumping and roaring swell, pounding into the bays and crashing onto the rocks. A six to eight foot and solid groundswell is expected with a mid-teens wave period. A thick swell, well travelled and powerful.
So, here’s the plan; this coast at your favourite break, reeling and pitching in the morning and then scurry over to the far coast and grab some of those reefs for the afternoon?
