Daily Surf Report - 8/23/2013

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
“If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.”  -  Milton Berle

Potential Pulses on the horizon.  Still seeing some signs of S swell on buoys and now in the water as well.  Very long intervals between waves and low tide not helping at all but little bits are starting to show.  Light overcast with sun starting to show.  Windless with a morning temp of 57F.  We had sun most of the day after the cloud burn-off.  No shark sightings at Stinson since Monday evening and nothing seen at Bolinas all week.  If the waves materialize it could be a nice weekend of surf.

CHANNEL:  Smooth ocean surface and low tide.  Plenty of sandbars exposed and no waves due to no water.  Empty line up. Maybe later?
PATCH: Exposed rocks and flat conditions.  Way, way out in Greene Africa there are signs of surf and 2 intrepid explorers are out there now.  2 surfers suiting up in the lot as well.  Not much going on but enough to make you put a wetsuit on.  IF the S swell is out there it will show here best and first so we will keep an eye out for something when the tide fills in.  Late morning / early afternoon are hopeful times. 


The second annual Mill Valley Surf Film Festival is coming up, Sept 13th and 14th at the Sweetwater in downtown Mill Valley. Tickets are on sale now. Looks like a solid lineup this year with Mason Jennings and Rogue Wave playing sets after the films each night.
