Medium Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 7.05 a.m. on Saturday 22nd March 2014:
What would we do without Harlyn on a windswept early spring weekend?
The wind is a little sideshoreish this morning and so it's putting a bit of froth and slop into that steady, rolling swell. There's one out enjoying an early morning solo session and catching a few bumpy ones.
The set waves are the ones, the first of the set smoothing the way for the following ones. Head high on most, a bit bigger on others, that should stay the same for most of the day, maybe building a bit later this afternoon on the next tide. Low tide is at about 3 o'clock this afternoon and so I guess that as the tide turns there might be a bit of a push.
But otherwise, there should be fun waves all the way through today, a bit testing and unpredictable here and there but mainly fun and rewarding.
Good to see a bunch of the junior GB squad out here yesterday, throwing some moves around the place. If you want to show your support in getting them to the ISA World Championships in Ecuador then go to www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-teamgb and donate some dosh!
And with the weekend upon us, we have just a few Winter wetsuits left to clear!
We need that space for all those lovely summer bits that are (already?) on their way to us. So if you want a last minute, winter bargain then you'd better drop in on us this weekend!
We might very well lose our website for a while on Monday or Tuesday, probably with our emails and everything else. So if you want to communicate then do it soon! Or wait till things have settled.
It should be worth it though!
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!
