Medium Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 7.05 a.m. on Wednesday 19th March 2014:
It's a grey and chilly one again, the wind whistling along from the west south west.
And so the surf, which has picked up as we hoped, is bumpily rolling in, a bit unpredictable, some breaking here, some there, with a few clean walls between them but a bit of a constant paddle just to be there.
It's a good three to four feet, probably bigger when you get out there but bouncy and a bit sloppy too. It's just about bang on high tide and so you have to think that it might just be at its best right now, the wind is likely to be more on it as the tide drops out.
Let's have a shuffle over to Harlyn, it should be cleaner around there.
Rhy (Barfield) is back from an Aus trip and here's what he got up to over there: vimeo.com/89278068
Rhys is off to Ecuador at the end of the month for the ISA World Junior Championships and the groms are desperately trying to raise the funds necessary to get them there without bankrupting their mums and dads. Since the mega surf companies aren't yet embarrassed enough to provide any support for the U.K. Groms, it's down to everyone else to do it! So go to www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-teamgb and pay a little back to the kids!!
We are looking to build our new shop team for 2014!
Over the last 20 something years we have been more than lucky to share our working days surrounded by great people, a great team of keen and knowledgeable crew in the shop, great customers returning time after time, and great suppliers of the very best products available.
It's a small shop, our happy little store, one full of all those little bits 'n bobs that help to improve the surfing experience for all us, plus all that other stuff that we sometimes just want!
So it's a tight and confined space, filled with lots of things that need to sometimes be explained, sized, fitted or advised upon.
And so it is important that when we do recruit, we recruit the right people.
The best, most knowledgeable, most helpful and most enthusiastic that we can find (or that find us!)!
There's no strict criteria to match, enthusiasm and passion are as important to us as a natural ability to be friendly and polite to customers.
You will need to be a source of advice and information, able to keep the shop tight and organised, the products displayed to their best, a proactive type, unable to walk past a disorganised display without smartening it up, constantly thinking of ways to improve it all, to make it wonderful. An attention to detail and an eye for beauty combined with a natural fondness for people.
Responsibilities will include the handling and processing of payments, opening and closing the shop, reconciliation of tills and all the serious stuff as well as making sure that the groms are behaving and having a good time.
Initiative and self motivation along with a genuine interest are important, as well as a natural sense of inquiry.
So, if you are full of energy, have some experience within retail, have a love for all things surfy, are happy to hug the people you work with and feel that you can bring that special something to our little store then email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me!
