Daily Surf Report - 1/24/2013

Overcast with low fog but windless and 52F this morning. Ocean is smooth with last residual leftovers of swell in the water. A few bumps to ride and a few surfers on longboards giving it their best efforts. Rideable to a degree and you can get wet if you need to. Something new in the N swell department is out there just not showing here yet.

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: Incoming tide has just peaked and will make its way back out to a small negative low. Outgoing tide could help with shape a bit but there are a few rights worth looking at coming in almost waist high. A bit white-watery to start then it hits the inside and cleans up a bit. Longboards are best bet now as swell energy is minor. Stay tuned for next round of N swell soon.

PATCH: The Patch is trying it's best this morning. However, with this high tide, backwash/bounce back and the absurd long periods of waiting a waist high set eventually comes through. Some waves break and others just tease but there are rollers out there to try. A surfer or two is on it and outgoing tide will help as it is maxed out now at 6.0'.
