It’s a beautiful summer’s day out there with the palest of a blue early morning sky anchored to the horizons, a massive ball of sunshine hoisting itself high already and a breeze as light as the breath of a butterfly.
Shame about the surf though!
There is a lazy foot or so of weak and wishy washy looking waves splashing the beach this morning, the high tide absorbing most of those little waves’ energy. But it should be rideable as the tide drops out, just about.
A longboard gliding session will go down well in all this warm and welcome sunshine and I think that we’ll get one. Mini-mali-Booby’s could keep us happy later, if you have a board big enough!

We have received our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken byCheyne 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 andO&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!!

Ah it is beautiful around here this morning, a shimmering bay of glassy turquoise bordered by golden sand and jaggedy blue slate.
There ain’t no surf here today though!
But grab yourself a SUP or Kayak or something that floats and get out there for a paddle, it is stunningly gorgeous this morning! And with the water temperature rising as it is (almost nudging 15 deg C already!), it won’t be long before an early morning swim will be a pleasure!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  11:49  (1.1m)                      High Tide:  17:41  (7.2m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 13th June 2014

Hmm, this fabulous weather is settling in with another beautiful day scheduled for today but we might also see some waves too!
Only little waves but clear and clean and bright and sparkling little waves.
A couple of feet of 10 second interval swell?
That’ll do on a bright and sunny day like this!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

High pressure has settled around us and looks like it’s going to make itself at home for at least a wee while.
And so we should be enjoying a lot of bright and pleasant weather well into the weekend and beyond.
Unfortunately the price that we will be paying is the lack of surf. We’ll be lucky to see any waves higher than knee high until the weekend.
Saying that though, when high pressure settles in it doesn’t take too much activity out in the Atlantic to produce half decent waves at our surf breaks locally. So we only need a little disturbance way out there to push some clean little lines our way.
And that’s what could just happen by the weekend!
Give the high pressure a day or two to settle conditions above us and then watch as those little waves trickle in from a long way away.
I think that we could just have some very fun waves towards the end of the week and into the weekend, Friday kicking things off with a very enjoyable couple of feet of smooth and quite well travelled little surf to ride.
And suddenly the weekend is starting to look a bit promising too!
A fun and very surfable three feet of swell should be rolling our way through the weekend, the winds set light and the sun set to shine. It is looking very promising indeed!
Don’t expect too much before that though, knee high grovellers are the best that we can hope for over the next day or two! But that bright weather always helps to make it that little more enjoyable doesn’t it!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
