Daily Surf Report - 12/30/2012

Sunshiny morning with light offshore wind and a temp of 40F. Beautiful winter day here in Bolinas. Still some raw ocean energy out there but bars need to reform a bit. Rideable waves but sectiony at times. Definitely worth a dip in the ocean. Parking lot is filling up.

Again a high incoming tide later this morning and decent amount of swell in the water. Look before you leap, assess the entrance and exit to the ocean, watch for other surfers heading in or out and use good judgement. The Boat Ramp is steep, slippery, mean and nasty with exposed holes and rebar. The Boat Ramp is like the Honey Badger. The Boat Ramp don't give a f*ck about your or your fancy board or your personal possessions or your loved ones. The Boat Ramp will chew you up and spit you out. Lots of carnage experienced yesterday with damaged boards and humans as well. Be careful and yes we do have in-house ding repair if needed.

MATUSE wetsuit year-end sale. 25% off all wetsuits for men and women. All the details are HERE

CHANNEL: Cleaning up a bit more today with longer rides available. Be patient and pick the right waves and you will be rewarded with open faces to make turns on. Seadrift rights are best and going waist high. Rights holding up well and a crew of 6 on it. Channel bar wave is a bit bigger but has sections. Clean ones roll through the Channel and are fast and smooth. Lefts are pieces and parts but a few do connect to the inside. Mali-Bo inside rights starting to work with more tide and size is thigh to waist. A few miscellaneous peaks inside of the Groin.

PATCH: Usual suspects out in force today as scattered peaks are rideable on big boards and SUPs. About 10-12 in the water right now. Size is almost waist high with mostly rights and the occasional left. Incoming tide has all rocks covered but access requires up and over the seawall today.

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