Surf conditions at 7.30 a.m. on Saturday 19th January 2013:
A calm morning is upon us with a brighter than expected sunrise lazily spreading itself over us, a light offshore breeze shaping the three foot swell. The thermometer is showing just 1 deg C but it does feel milder than that, chilly but not as biting as yesterday!
The surf is good, real good!
Three to occasionally four feet of glassy walls are crashing through, peaking and peeling at half tide. I'm guessing that it might be even better in an hour or two for HTC and then might drop, just a little, on the outgoing tide.
Yep, it's looking good, if you can get through the snow where you are!
And it's now that we turn our attention to which boards we are going to stock in the shop for the coming season!
Cheyne reckons anything twin-fin, short, wide thick and floaty.
But what about the power brands; Merricks, Lost, Chilli etc, but are they worth the money? And then there are our old favourites too; Sol-Life, Meyerhoffer, 7S, Webber etc..
What do you think?
You know the address (firstname.lastname@example.org) so go on, tell us about the board of your dreams!
And speaking of surfboards,I'm having a clear out at home, so if anyone wants a 9'1 Southpoint Bonga 2 model (Schaper) then I'm whazzing mine out at Â£325? It's pretty immaculate etc, etc.. I'll get some piccies up sometime.
And we still have that used 9'4 Robert August wood veneer Surf Tech up on the ceiling. That's about Â£500. We also have a bunch of great new longboards too, by McTavish, Meyerhoffer and others.
If you can get here through all that snow that is out there (not here!) then we'll do another POP UP SALE this weekend with big price drops on all wetsuits and surfboards and loads of other offers (which we'll make up as we go along!).
