Daily Surf Report - 12/11/12


Goodmorning fellow wave explorers. It's a foggy morning here in town so please be mindful when navigating your petrolium burning money eater around the West Marin environs. It's currently 49 degrees but feels colder than a well digger's butt. HUGE high tide right now as a swell is TRYING to do something but there is just too much water right now and not enough sand bar to make it work. I'll try to take a look a bit later today to see if there is a change, so check back here later this afternoon for an update. (Note: If there is no update that means there is no change in conditions).

ALSO: With this high tide comes a lot of flotsom (wood, poles, planks, debris floating in the water) that you can get injured from. So, be mindful when entering and exiting the water. Keep your eyes open and your head on a swivel.

CHANNEL: Trying to break but just dumping a little thigh high mushy thing inside of the Channel by the Groin pole, which peter's out within about 10 yards... which is good for a first down but not good for any decent surf. Maybe later with the tide change since it is an extreme one on both ends today. Three (3) longboards out there mostly sitting between a very occasional 'Straight-Off-Adolph' lurch.

PATCH: It's really, REALLY trying here. Lines are coming in but then they fade like Nicholas Cage's hairline. I'd say this spot will be the call later this afternoon.

We still have a few open spots in our next Intermediate Surf Clinic happening on Saturday 12/15/2012. All the details are HERE and signups are online through our schedule.
