Daily Surf Report - 2/17/2012

Best wishes and prayers go out to Jim and Martha Robinson who were both injured in a car accident while driving home from the beach last weekend. Jim and Martha are Bolinas regulars and great people. Get well soon and see you back in the lineup!

High pressure system remains active with offshore flow. Warm and clear into the weekend. Today starts at 43F with sunny, blue skies.
Slight uptick on the buoy readings and surf has come up a bit as well. Surf is still small but rideable with a bit more energy today. Longboards are working best but shortboards can get moving on the inner Groin bar.

Channel: Draining tide with waves off the Channel bar. Looks to be a smooth, waist high + left. Inner Groin bar shortboardable and also waist high. Seadrift still has rights working as well. 8 surfers in the water.

Patch: Waist high waves breaking outside on the higher tide. A little cleaner inside but big logs and SUPs are getting into the outer waves. Smooth and rideable rights to be surfed. Higher tide covers rocks but they are there so keep an eye out. About 8 - 10 in the water.

New logs in the shop. Resin tinted and Volan cloth - a classic combination. Big wide noses and fins. Soft, buttery rails to cruise, glide and trim. These are both 10.0' and were shaped by master craftsman, Bob Miller, out of Santa Cruz. These are the last coming out of his shaping bay for a while as he is sailing off to warmer waters. If you want a board to rule the Patch come take a look.

2012 Tide Logs are finally in. Come by to pick one up.

Just a reminder to pack your trash!!! PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
