Daily Surf Report - 7/18/2012

Some days the old dog has teeth and today is no exception. Both the Channel and Patch are working very well in the chest-to-shoulder high range. Yes, you read that correctly. It's currently overcast and 58 degrees, however this should burn off as it's supposed to be in the mid 70's today! Bring whatever it is you ride in the ocean as it's a wonderful day here. By-the-way, this is an excellent oportunity to rent some gear and learn to surf.

Channel: Waves in the chest to occasional shoulder high range. The middle bar is beginning to work (both the right for Sea Drift and the left are throwing out) as the tide comes up and the left between the Groin pole and Boat Ramp are spinning away. It's all good for all types of boards. About 7 in the water now.

Patch: This spot is breaking in the waist to chest high range way outside. It's all good here too. Log's or SUP's are the call here. One lone SUP out there getting big, clean stuff.

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.
