Daily Surf Report - 7/27/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” - John Lennon

This PSA brought to you today by The Ocean:
Please do not take all the beach sand on your wetsuits, booties and surfboards.  The shop does not want it.  The storm drains do not want it.  The streets do not want it, but the ocean does.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Another beautiful morning here in Bolinas as the fog is light and already starting to burn off and the temps are nice and cool at 61F. Expect it to heat up and for the sun to shine as the day gets underway. Perfect day to bring the family and play on the beach and escape the unbearable inland heat. As for the surf, it is small and inconsistent as there is very little swell in the water. Tide is extremely low right now which isn't helping, but expect for some slightly better surf later today with a higher tide. That being said, it is the perfect day for all you beginners out there are is it is mellow and rideable. Come out and see what's in store for all you weekend warriors.

CHANNEL:  Slight texture reminiscent of last evenings breeze this morning. Tide is low and the bars are exposed, yet some small knee high peelers are standing up and rolling through in the middle and over to the seadrift side. Tide is incoming till later this afternoon and should improve the wave conditions and size. Not a soul in sight.... yet.

PATCH: Tiny waves in the ankle range are breaking on the inside where it is extremely shallow and riddled with scattered rocks. But there are a few logs out catching some non-breaking waves that are just steep enough to get them moving just next to the meeting rock. More water is needed here before those waves really start to break. Might be a good morning to explore the tide pools within the rocks.
