Medium Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 7.45 a.m. on Saturday 2nd February 2013:
That was a stormy night, the wind howling and the rain lashing the coastline.
This morning is a lot quieter, it's still blowing hard enough and onshore enough to make a mess of the three to four feet of mixed up surf and not quite sideshore enough to blow into the lefts, although it is trying.
There's a blast of a sunrise bursting over the horizon which is shooing those dark clouds away, leaving that big half moon floating over the bay.
And the wind is forecast to weaken, at least offering the chance of something better for later. Yep, if that wind could just twitch only a degree or two further clockwise then it could be quite good but it's just not doing it ! Yet!?
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 thoseSurf Travel books, looking for inspiration!
