Strong Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 6.55 a.m. on Thursday 27th February 2014:
What would we have done without Harlyn this winter? Our haven in all those storms, offering shelter and shape to those windswept swells that have battered our coast this Winter.
But today even Harlyn is a bit of a mess.
Those three to four foot waves are mixed up and sloppy as the tide slips half way out to a late morning low.
This wind must have some northerly in it to be having this much of an effect. Either way, right now it's not all that great, the waves are mixed up and sloppy, all bouncy and fidgety as well as dark and grey looking too!
After saying all that, the wind is forecast to veer gradually through this morning, ending up more south westerly by early this afternoon. So it could just be worth a little look later, maybe around high tide, it's only a 6.9 metre high, so it could just work all the way through?
But it is nice that the days are stretching out a little. Only a little but it's suddenly noticeable!
It won't be long before the pre and post work/school crews start getting on it. All that we really need are some settled conditions allowing for some cleaner swells instead of these non-stop storms!
But that will come with Spring I'm sure!
And with that thought in our minds we have a bit going on in the shop!
With all that lovely new spring and summer stock already on its way to us, we will have to clear a bit more space!
And, with this winter's water temperatures having been so mild, we do have a whole bundle of wonderful winter wetsuits leftover! So, yep, we are going to have a MASSIVE CLEAR-OUT SALE THIS WEEKEND!
So, if you want a spanking new wetsuit, if it's time to upgrade those booties or gloves or even if you are contemplating a new board, maybe this weekend is that time to do it!
This Saturday and Sunday only we will be offering £50, £60, £70 and MORE OFF all of our major wetsuits including our range of Xcel and O'Neill 2013/14 suits!
