Surf conditions at 6.55 a.m. on Wednesday 2nd April 2014:
Smooth-faced and lively looking, overhead (just) surf is sliding ashore this morning, those hollow walled reelers spinning off the Reef at almost high tide.
The hazy, front lit view is brightening by the minute as that time lagged sunrise crawls over the horizon.
It is all looking good, really very good, this morning!
The swell is a proper, lined up and nicely groomed four to five foot groundswell, moving with purpose, unhurried but swift and the breeze is steady, an offshore lightness holding that early morning chill.
We are in for a very pleasant day of surfing I think!
Thanks for all the job applications, hopefully we are gradually getting there with our team rebuild! We still have gaps though so if you are interested then drop me a mail!
Although, Kelly, I did say that nothing is certain! You might have been a bit presumptuous kicking Quik into the long grass just yet. There is still that interview process to go through (http://www.aspworldtour.com/posts/35202/slater-splits-with-quiksilver)!
And good to hear that Tom Meyerhoffer was over here last week at the Design Council thing in London. And what a great place to launch his admittedly bizarre looking new board design(as if the older ones weren’t weird enough!).
I don’t pretend to understand the hydrodynamics of a rectangular plan shape with perpendicular rail flow and mid length positioning of circular fins and I have not yet grasped the principle involved with that rigid-flex ‘step back’ tail but you have to love the use of straw as a core. Modern-retro indeed!
Rhys Barfield and Team GB Junior Squad have safely arrived in Ecuador for the ISA World Junior Championships. But he and the rest of the groms are still desperately trying to raise the funds necessary to be there without bankrupting their mums and dads.? Since the mega surf companies aren’t yet embarrassed enough to provide any support for the U.K. Groms, it’s down to everyone else to do it!
There’s only a day or so left to pledge your support for British surfing’s future! So go to http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-teamgb and pay a little back to the kids!? Here’s a clip of Rhys while in Australia a week or two ago…
