Surf conditions at 6.45 a.m. on Tuesday 3rd September 2013:
It is way milder this morning than it was this time yesterday! And that is because the wind has dropped away and switched around to the south east.
Well, there's hardly a breeze really.
And so the surf, although quite small, is shimmering glass.
There is a lazy foot or two of swell producing a decent couple of feet of rideable surf, even the odd three footer if you have the patience to wait for them but I wouldn't bother, those little peelers are bundles of glassy fun.
The sky is a bit dreary but that is probably just the early morning fug of a changing season confusion. It'll be bright enough soon enough!
I'm guessing that those little waves might strengthen on this afternoon's tide too.
So, a fun day of summer wave riding. That'll do!
At this time of year our thoughts are filled with the anticipation of those September swells, more solid, smooth and even than the little swells of Summer. Let's hope for some long travelled, large period swells rolling in against offshore breezes, the water temperature peaking nicely into the 'balmy' range, the lineups thinned once the schools reopen and the summer visitors leave.
It has been a lovely Summer, filled with warm and lazy days, fun surf sessions and magical sunsets. And it's not over yet!
The forecasts are showing at least a few days more of pleasant weather to come, maybe to coincide with the start of those Autumn swells!?
Let's hope so!
And we have finally received our shipment of surfboards from Channel Islands and...Lost!
Check the pics below for some happy smiley faces of those who've already grabbed their new sticks!
So, now we are ready for those September swells!
With a massive choice of deck grip, a host of FCS, Futures and Captain Fin Co. fins, a huge selection of leashes along with all those other bits 'n bobs that help to improve those surf sessions, it should very well be worth a drop-in for a look-see if you're around this way!
