Daily Surf Report - 1/18/2013

2:30pm Update: Ripples on the horizon with waves in the Patch reaching knee high on the inside. Channel breaks occasionally and almost thigh high on the Groin bar when it does. Swell still filling in and may not see it fully until tomorrow. Weather remains beautiful with sunny skies, light offshore winds and temps in the low 60s.

Not quite yet but on the way.... Still waiting for the new WNW swell to fill in and peak over the next 2 days. Great NE winds already have the town temp up to 46F. You will see frost and ice on the drive out but the beach weather is clear, sunny and beautiful. Will update conditions this afternoon as things change for the better.

Be careful when driving the West Marin environs this time of year. Black ice is prevalent and there are still small patches of ice on the road as the sun is low in the sky and it takes a while to thaw out. Drive slowly and with caution.

CHANNEL: Offshore and groomed up mini barrels and grinders in the calf high size only. Hoping for more swell to show up and produce but currently only 3 surfer on the Seadrift side making a go of the small surf conditions. Very small and breaking only on the inside. Low tide-ish so lots of sand and Groin wall exposed.

PATCH: Triple over banacle and reeling rights at the Patch. Ankle high clam clampers. Seahorse size surf at the moment. As for regular humans - not yet.
