Strong Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 7.25 a.m. on Thursday 31st January 2013:
It's difficult to tell exactly how big it is today, that high tide surge pushing wedges under the bridge again while those big outside ones are bouncing angrily, the rights hollow against the wind.
It must be four to five feet, maybe bigger on the sets, although that could ease off as the tide slips out in a minute.
The wind is just a little too far westerly again this morning for it to be called 'good' but it should settle more south westerly as the day goes on and it should ease in strength too, allowing Harlyn to shine a little more.
By this afternoon it could be quite good, especially if you know where to go.
Yep, this afternoon could just be very okay!
It's that time of year when it seems as though almost everyone is thinking of travelling or have already packed their boardies and squeezed onto a long-haul!
Cheyne has slipped away to Maroc with Bali Charlie and Matt, the usual contingent are living the Indo dream, Micah is gorging himself on those North Shore barrels, while others are exploring America, Australia and other far-flung lands promising warmer water and clear waves.
If you are readying yourself for the airport run, don't forget that we stock all those little things that make a surf trip just that little bit more enjoyable! From sunblock to key safes, leashes to spare fins, board bags to sun hats!
And our POP UP weekend SALEs have proved so popular that we are carrying on again THIS WEEKEND!
So if you are thinking of heading off to the sun and surf, drop in on us on the way for some bargain travel accessories!
But the other side of all that is that the surf breaks have become much quieter too! And with all this swell that we have been enjoying through January along with the (relatively) mild water temperatures kind of make you think that there are worse places to be!
With a decent wetsuit (and most of them are really very good these days!), there is no real need to suffer anymore. So if you are feeling the chill, maybe it's time to take advantage of our WEEKEND WETSUIT SALE! 25% OFF all suits! Yep, all of them!
We're open 10 till 4 Saturday and Sunday but might have our heads in one of those Surf Travel books, looking for inspiration!
