Daily Surf Report - 5/4/2012

RIP Adam Yauch
- aka MCA from the groundbreaking hip-hop group the Beastie Boys - has died today at age 47 after a 3 year battle with cancer.

Sunny and beautiful with light NW winds and a current temp of 52F. New bit of south swell in the water and small wind swell to combo. Rideable surf at both spots in town today.

Channel: Waves peeling off of the Channel and Groin bars this morning. Thigh to waist high and smooth, glassy lefts. Longboards are working best but the Groin bar can get a fish or Simmons going today. About 10 - 12 in the water.

Patch: South swell shows at the Patch. Waves in the thigh to waist high size with rights on the north end of the area. Logs and SUPs reaping the benefits today. Working more inside now but filling tide will add to the mix.

Summer Time = Simmons Time.

If you haven't seen or tried the Mini-Simmons now is the time. Old and new ideas come together, this displacement hull and almost no rocker has been improved by ending the tail with a double concave and a quad fin setup. The fastest and funnest board I've ever ridden. So buttery and skatey on the turns with speed for days. Works insane in all conditions and ridden ridiculously small. Here is a custom order for patriotic Sonoma Surfer - CT.

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