Light Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 6.50 a.m. on Tuesday 21st May 2013:
'Very bright for a dull day, if you know what I mean. Sky's grey but you still have to squint to look up at it. What's that about?', asks Chris Evans (twitter) and that's about right here this morning too.
And the surf is pretty missable too. One to two feet of onshore blown, weak looking little waves are rolling ashore. It still has some line-upness about it but you can tell that it is weak and it does look crumbly. It might just be worth a little look an hour or two ahead of high tide this afternoon, although there's's not a huge tide (four metres ish) it should help a bit.
Yep, I think that by early afternoon there might just be a bit more fun to be had than you'd expect by looking at it and the weather should have brightened up a lot too. In the meantime, there's all those jobs to get done before it gets good again!
With that big Bank Holiday about to arrive we have been getting the shop into some sort of shape with new lighting, Superfast Broadband, a new rail or two and a little coat of paint and we're almost (nowhere near) ready to launch into another new season of fun-in-the-sun! (!!??).
New stock is being squeezed onto the rails alongside those few Winter items that we are reluctant to let go of this Spring. We are still selling warm and cosy stuff and our wetsuit boots and gloves are in as much demand as they were in the middle of Winter! But now so too are those Reef flip flops, our Vans canvas shoes, sun hats and suncream as well!
Yep, it is all a little crowded in our tiny little surf store right now but at least we have most stuff that you'll need, whatever the weather!
And this week we have more great stuff arriving too!
A new (to the UK) brand of surf clothing is on its way, our own Ts are being printed, a top secret design collaboration is under way for our own designs and new hardware stock is being delivered daily.
So, for deck grip, leashes, ding-repair packs, bike racks, surfboard fins (FCS as well as the new 'Futures'), swim fins (have you seen those Pink Hydros?), the best surfboards in the area (and we have BeachBeat demos) and Bodyboards, well , we have the lot!
All of the best quality and all at the best price.
And all those wetsuits too!
The new Xcel summer suits are in and the new range of O'Neill summer suits are on their way (we hope!). And Alder have a sneakily wonderful, super priced, sealed seam suit for well under a hundred quid! It's flexi too! Just ask Ben Bennet, their newly sponsored team rider!
So, why not drop in on us if you are over this way this holiday. We probably have what you need at a decent price and we can guide and advise too, if you need it!
