All I can say is WOW. The price tag worried me a little but after using it a couple times I'm convinced, this is the best wetsuit money can buy, hands down. Flash bombs will be my wetsuits for life. I'm buying the 6/5/4 winter monster as soon as it drops. Thank you Secret Spot.

Surf Report
Scarborough and Cayton Bay Surf Forecast UPDATED: Thursday 29th Jan

Morning folks, some small but well shaped offshore peaks on the main beaches. Around 1-2ft and hopefully building later today. Only really longboard able at present but hopefully improving later. Arctic winds and swell due for the weekend where it's looking to get seriously big so get prepared!

All being well we will see todays swell build quickly through Friday as the epicentre of the low sits central in our swell window. For the weekend the isobars elongate down the coastline of the UK bringing surf, wind and some pretty baltic air so rest assured there's cold surf bound for our shore's.

Saturday should be good size as more surf moves down but its Sunday and early next week that will see the brunt of the swell. Although MSW have NW cross offshore winds forecast the isobars disagree and show those all to familiar Northerlies that will howl most breaks into a confused cross chopped mess.

 Shelter will be the best bet even for the chargers amongst us as 30mph cross shore winds will be less than ideal, so go hunting or stick with the likes of South Bay for a cleaner far more managable wave...

Bigger today as the lows centre is right above us sending swell outwards from its epicentre, we should see the size increase through the day, currently looking to start off around 2-3ft or so and build quickly after midday as the swell pours down the East and West coast as the UK splits the Arctic storm system. Winds will start offshore and veer WNW and most likely cross shore as the surf builds mid-afternoon.

Expect 3-4ft midday building to 5-6ft last light providing the storm follows its current path...

There's a lot of swell due today, and some unkind isobars looking to turn the (elsewhere forecasted NW) winds to cross shore Northerlies. This is pretty much a given so any exposed breaks will be hard work leaving the more sheltered bays the only real option other than a very few select spots along the coast.

The day will start around 6ft and more likely 6-8ft and this could well peak bigger towards the end of the day...

Well Feb is going to start with a bang...Possibly looking to be the biggest surf to hit our coast since the storm surge a year ago, just as well the tides are small this year...

It's a very rare thing to see the likes of 12-15ft forecast on the popular sites but looking at Sundays chart you have to agree it's going to be pretty big on the East side. The winds are looking strong in the 25-30mph region and most likely straight Northerlies, although there is a slight chance we might see some deviation for the better later in the day with NW or better.

Cross you fingers and hope for the winds to play ball if you own a big board and a big pair otherwise South bay will be calling and still packing a pretty serious punch for a change!
