Calm Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 6.25 a.m. on Thursday 19th June 2014:
It is another stunner of a morning, those deep blue skies reflecting off the mirror surface of the sea, the breeze only a whisper but as for the surf? Well, it is flat.
There are no waves to be seen anywhere as you look out across the North Atlantic Ocean. It’s difficult to believe that this swimming pool flatness can stretch as far as the horizon but I think that it does!
And I can’t see any change anytime soon!
Time to drag out the SUP and go explore our beautiful coastline I think.
Oh, and thanks for all of your comments in answer to yesterday’s request for your opinions on SUPing. Popularity is growing at a rate it seems. I was expecting a bit of a split vote but it’s thumbs up for paddling when it’s flat. Groups of paddlers rocking up on a small peak aren’t popular but that’s right anyway, whatever mode of fun you choose.
So, next question; do you want us to hire them out? Or would that just cause hassle in the lineup? I see the advantage when it’s flat like this but what about when there’s a little swell like last week?
Let us know your thoughts! And while you're at it, why not let us know what you think of our new site? It's been a month or two now, so tell us what you think. Do you like the images and stuff? firstname.lastname@example.org is the address!
In the meantime, it’s time to get all those little tasks out of the way that just don’t get done when there’s a swell. Or you could just soak up some rays!?
We have received our Pukas ’Inspiration Project’ Ts featuring an image of Toby (Donachie) taken by Cheyne and put together by those fine artisans at Pukas in Spain (they’re the guys that make boards for Mr Gabriel Medina) and they’re on the rails now!
Actually we have loads of new stuff hanging on the rails ready for this Summer’s visitors:
Summer wetsuits from O’Neill, Xcel and Alder are hanging alongside surf accessories from FCS and O&E while Reef flip flops are sat next to Vans beach and skate shoes. The newly launched Vissla range of clothes are alongside rails of Brixton Mfg, Captain Fin Co, Reef, Lost, Coastees and the newly inPassenger range as well as our our own Shop logo’d garments.
We have sunglasses from Bolle, Ray Ban and now the brand new dBlanc (and how great are they!) as well as EightyEight and Vision.
Time for a new board for Summer?
Then take your pick from our wide range of boards. We have longboards, short board, fun boards, soft boards, finless boards and all sorts! Al Merrick, Haydenshapes, Meyerhoffer, Sol Life, …Lost, Beach Beat, Hawaiian Soul and Webber, we should have something to suit!
And if we haven’t got it, we can get it!
So, drop in on us this week if you’re around the area!!
