Medium Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 7.50 a.m. on Thursday 9th January 2014:
It's a different day today, a chillier, damp and dull kind of day, the wind from the north west, chopping the much smaller surf.
It is drying out quite quickly after the earlier torrents of rain, but there's still a threat of more to come.
The surf has dropped to not much more than three or four feet, the wind blowing straight in on it making for choppy and sloppy, uninviting conditions.
It's going to be interesting to see how those storms have changed the sandbanks and what effect that will have on the shape of the surf. It's a bit windy still to be able to tell exactly, we might have to wait until the weekend (forecast to be clean and offshore!) before seeing whether Hercules provide blissful peelers or close-out nightmares!
In the meantime, it looks like a day of rest after weeks of powering waves. A day to fix those boards and rest your muscles. And let's hope it's not too long before they're both back in action! But maybe not today, not here anyway.
And, as those Winter storms wrapped themselves around us, tugging and tearing and testing your wetsuit, snapping surfboards and chilling those little fingers and toes, have you thought about replacing any of your equipment yet?
We have stacks of leashes, deck grip, fins and all sorts, not to forget those basic things like surfboards and wetsuits! And we're just deciding whether to do a massive clear-out Sale!
What do you think?
We have Xcel, O'Neill and Alder wetsuits, boots, hoods and gloves, Merrick, ....Lost, Meyerhoffer, Haydenshapes, Webber and other surfboards, FCS, Futures andCaptain Fin Co fins and accessories, as well as O & E and Kommunity Project grips and bags and stuff. Plus loads more!
So, do you fancy a bargain?
