Daily Surf Report - 5/12/2012

Noon Update: Patches of blue and partially sunny skies! Please do the beach a favor and leave some sand behind. Don't bring it all back on your suit and board.

Currently overcast and cool with sunny and warm conditions expected later today. Temp is 52F with light SW winds. Tide is heading low quickly but there is plenty of water now. Sand and rocks will be exposing in a few hours. Small waves are the norm today with scattered peaks to longboard or learn on.

Channel: Focusing again on the Groin bar with small waves in the thigh high + size. Seadrift inside rights working and also thigh high + (double over Sea Squirrel). Fair shape with 6 longboarders out.

Patch: Currently has water - will not by late morning. Not much in terms of surf right now. A few scattered knee to thigh high waves broke on the inside. A few small peelers to ride. Logs and SUPs will work today.

South swells are starting and if you're craving warm water and consistent waves, visit our friends in Mexico at Manzanillo Bay. Manzanillo Bay is a quick and easy surf destination from San Francisco. Hidden away and off the beaten tourist path, The Inn at Manzanillo Bay is a sanctuary, protected from prevailing winds and large line-ups. Ten steps from your private bungalow is Manzanillo Point—a spectacular left point break.

Whether it's the onsite five star restaurant serving regional Mexican cuisine or the clean luxurious accommodations, you’ll leave the Inn comfortable and relaxed. Oh and there are regular sea turtle hatchings on the beach right out front. Prepare to be impressed.
