Surf conditions at 6.50 a.m. on Wednesday 2nd July 2014:
It is a stunner of a morning, an early morning Bodmin visit reminding me that we do live in a pretty special part of this crazy world.
The moors are looking gorgeous in the early sunrise, the distant coastline twinkling blue on a bright and clear, sunny summer morning, those recent occasional heavy showers having ‘greened’ up the fields and pastures, the hedgerows drooping with flower.
Down on the beach there are still a few waves pushing in against the light offshore (east south easterly) breeze, the sets bringing in a decent couple of feet of vertical waves, curling around that little sandbank that’s there a couple of hours ahead of high water.
It is small again, real small but as pretty as pretty can be!
Those little peelers are reeling off those banks making you want to dash off and grab yourself a longboard and go glide a few!
Don’t forget the sunblock!
Thanks for all your comments regarding our re-vamped site and the images we are running each day. It’s obviously a work in progress but we’re getting there! Thanks to Mark at MiHi Digital too, a guiding hand when others had let us down.
Here’s another view of this morning’s beach scene for you:
We have now received our new stock of Coastees Ts, depicting our local bays as well as receiving 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 all 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!
