Howling Offshore wind
Surf conditions at 7.30 a.m. on Friday 14th February 2014:
Thar she blows!!!
Yep, it's blowing a hooley out there this morning yet again, a violent wind bending the hedges and sandblastng the paintwork.
But the wind is blowing offshore this morning, a south easterly gale rushing at the four foot swell with a vengeance and creating three to four to five feet hollow and curling waves.
And so those waves are shapely, a bit fat faced off the Reef but there's a peak in the bay that is rolling and reeling, a beyond vertical wave wall spinning across the bay. The tide is creating that peak as much as anything and so it is unlikely to last long. But then the Point does look promising for later.
Watch out though because this wind is forecast to increase in strength yet!
We are likely to see severe storm force wind by lunchtime, still offshore until then but swinging onshore about then.
So, if you can find somewhere tucked under a headland or a sand dune, somewhere away from this gusting and tearing wind then you should find some pleasantly peeling surf.
At least this morning there is the opportunity to find somewhere on this side of the headland and there should be a few sheltered breaks to choose from but be quick! that
wind will be howling straight back into the bays by lunchtime!
If you are headed this way for the school holidays this weekend, don't worry, we are open daily throughout the half term break and have loads of offers on the go!
So whether you're looking to upgrade the little ones' wetsuits or need some boots, gloves or hats then drop in on us, you might be surprised at some of our offers!
