Daily Surf Report - 1/4/2013

Not as cold but still a bit frosty this morning. Another Bo-beautiful day here with clear skies full of sunshine and a few patchy clouds, temp of 42F and light NE winds warming it up. New little dose of N swell in the water today picking it up a notch. Still on the small side but a bit cleaner and rideable at both spots in town.

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: Seadrift has the best shaped waves today with surf in the waist high range. Longboards and SUPs across the Channel and on it now. Low tide approaching so it will become a bit rippy in the middle. Deeper Channel bar is intermittent today but does deliver clean rights when swell hits it just right. Groin bar still shifting around but has small thigh high waves that mostly closeout but occasionally a gem comes through heading left.

PATCH: Pop up peaks all over in the Patch this morning. Inside rights to be surfed and some rock navigation in the thigh high + size. Outside waves are best when they break and can be ridden until the inside. Still have some lines coming through but scattered with mixed results. Afternoon incoming tide session was good and clean yesterday and expect same results today. Grab your log and cruise.

PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
