Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"The surf waits for no man." - Anonymous 

Well people the surf gods are smiling on BoBo this morning blessing us with favorable conditions. Air temps this morning are 62F with clear to slightly cloudy skies. For the surf, get here. Waves are in the thigh high range all the way around. Just a few people in the water and no wind to speak of. The making of an ultra classic morning.


CHANNEL: Thigh high lefts breaking in front of the groin pole peeling into little almond barrels. Middle channel has a few rights rolling into the sea drift side. Smooth and clean conditions with only a few guys out this morning. Get here!!!!!   



PATCH: Different story. Knee high peaks jumbled and rolling over the shallow rocks as one brave soul challenges the patch this morning. Still clean surface conditions but no order. Could possibly be the hot spot later in the day.

Dail Surf Report-8/25/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"Yeah, Well, thats just like your opinion, man" - The Dude.


Grey skies prevail this morning here in our little piece of heaven. Still and calm in down town BoBo today. As for the surf-not much happening as the swell has died down a bit and south winds are on the menu. Air temp at 61F and should heat up later this afternoon. A few hardy souls are braving the conditions. Hopefully with the tide shift conditions will improve. Bring your largest stick to the beach today for the salt water soak will be a long one.  


CHANNEL: Thigh to waist high waves are breaking in front of the groin pole with two people out trying their luck. Not much breaking over on the sea drift side or in the middle channel.  Slight texture due to wind and tide. Little mushy and a little closed out. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for later in the day gang.   


PATCH: Small to knee high rights mushing their way through the way outside today. A few guys put with an SUP struggling to have fun. Hope for improvement as the tide comes in. As for now the jury is still out.

Daily Surf Report - 8/24/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"I could not tread these perilous paths in safety, if I did not keep a saving sense of humor." - Horatio Nelson


There's an energy about town today as the sky is grey, the winds are blowing, and the swell is pumping through this morning. Slightly overcast skies are present and bound to lift later in the day as air temps are at 62F and bound to heat up into the 70s later today. SW winds are blowing pretty steadily at 5 knots and are supposed to shift to NW and pick up later in the day. Combo-ing NW and S swells are converging in our little bay this morning producing waist plus waves that may reach head high on the right tide. Will be a tough day for beginners so I suggest to err on the side of caution and know what your limits are. Be safe and ocean minded.   

CHANNEL:   Consistent waist high plus waves are breaking with a short interval as a handful of guys are out dealing with an already high rising tide. SW winds are making waves mushy and the surface textured, but they are rideable nonetheless. Over on Seadrift, a few rights are breaking through as they reach across from the walled and closed out middle channel. In front of the groin pole, or more to the right of it, lefts are coming through breaking in the waist to chest range with some standout sets in the head high range. All sorts of water craft will work today, just be aware of the tidal rips and size. 

PATCH:   Lines on the horizon, lines on the shore. The swell is easily seen here as waves are breaking way outside the meeting rock and all the way in to the Snags section. Many of the waves are a bit mushy right now and roll more than break all the way to the inside section. That said, waves are plentiful in the waist to chest range and the rollers are still standing up enough to glide on in. Bring your magic stick and see whats in store or just have fun getting slammed in the shore-break.

Daily Surf Report - 8/23/2014




Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"It is always overhead when your are prone." - PeePaw Piper


Overcast and calm in the early morning.  No chance for the sun to shine yet but it will appear and cast a glow later today.  Expect moderate temps up to 70s or better.  Now 61F and light puffs of S wind but an overall smooth ocean with some energy and juice this morning.  Something has got the surf kicked up this morning.  Buoys still showing a slightly larger NW windswell and the steep S swell.  Combo angles may just be coalescing over Bolinas today as there are plenty of waves to ride and glide upon.  Some stuff not for amateurs so be prepared to show your surfer card to anyone with and inquiring mind.    


CHANNEL:  Reeling, dealing, peeling and squealing.  Consistently waist high or better with the incoming tide giving that little extra push.  Water levels are low but the waves power through un-impeded.  Lefts are holding shape in the Channel and connecting through at the Groin bar.  Slight wrinkle to navigate and the inside corners are perfect for paipos and body surfing.  Water is warm and a few waves are actually pitching.  Best waves going nearly shoulder high.  Longboards are working.  Eggs off all varieties will score as well - scrambled, fried, over easy or sunny side up.  Fish can manage too - salmon, halibut, rock cod and stripers will make easy work of the inside lefts.  Overall fun morning surf that should stick around and adjust with the tides. 


PATCH:  Well outside is where it begins.  Green Afrika and beyond if the current group of surfers are any indicator.  New continents being explored by the intrepid few way out past the meeting rock.  Peaks abound in the region mid-way and starting to work inside, and size flows from thigh high to almost chest.  Relatively smooth ocean surface and everyone is spread out all over.  Looks like long rides can be had and lots of paddling required to make your way back out.  Good stuff on the right board.

Daily Surf Report - 8/22/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
"The power of imagination makes us infinite." - John Muir


Overcast with high cloud cover but no rain, mist or drizzle.  Sun came out yesterday and warmed things up to nearly 70.  Expect more of the same today with sunshine by early afternoon.  Now light S winds chopping the ocean surface up a bit.  Temp is 60F and the positive possibilities are endless.  Swell activity remains consistent with NW windswell and a steep S swell combo in play.  Current swell angle and tide are sub-optimal for epic results but there are a few in the water now riding the small stuff that is being offered up.  



CHANNEL:  Groin corners have thigh high or better waves to ride at the present moment.  A bit ripped up and choppy in the Channel but the incoming tide push starting to show a little at Mali-Bo.  Time and more water will help this environment flourish.  Now just bits and pieces but waves are available.  A couple of logs and SUPs interacting here with mixed results.  


PATCH:  Not smooth but has small waves.  S pulses being observed in the thigh high realm of reality.  A bit of wind on it keeping things not so glassy yet drawing a few surfers out to sample the wares.  Bring a big chop-cutter longboard and power through the early morning wobble to find nirvana on a wave.

Daily Surf Report - 8/21/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." - Albert Einstein


Nearly rain and wipers are on this moist Marin morning.  Almost drizzle, we call is mizzle as it is a heavy mist.  Overcast and foggy as well but that is keeping the winds light.  Temp clocks in at 60F and that may be as warm as it gets today.  Who needs sun when kids are back in school and a little wave is available to ride?  Still have NW windswell and the remnants of a steep S groundswell to contend with.  Combo is possible and those waves are best.  For now relatively small but rideable and incoming tide push should help.  



CHANNEL:  A cluster-cuss of surfers sitting on the Groin bar peak that is delivering thigh high rights and lefts for your longboard this morning.  Waves to be shared and ridden by you and your closest friends.  Remember positivity and sharing is caring.  Keep one eye open for Mali-Bo insiders as the tide is right for small wave rippers there.  Seadrift is foggy but likes windswell and should have something to ride if the maddening crowd of 8 is too much to bear.  


PATCH:  Nothing much happening and even less to report as the early morning Patch has low tide and low waves.  J-ankle high at best and perfect for the fishing kayaks launching early this morning.  Tour on your SUP but waves will be scarce until the tide fills in late morning.

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
"What is a soul? It's like electricity - we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room" - Ray Charles


Cold wet and drizzly day in down town BoBo. Gray skies and little surf as air temps are holding at 61F this morning.  Hope is on the horizon for a change in the tide today. The swell is nearly non existent as south winds prevail through the morning. Bring your hoodies as the shadow of mordor has descended on our little hamlet today. As Bon Scott said "let there be light" and there was fog.



CHANNEL:  Small and mushy today as the tide is coming in and the south wind blow. Small ankle slappers are on the menu as one lone soul braves the conditions this morning. May improve with the tide, keep your fingers crossed.  


PATCH: Two SUPers doing the salt water soak on lake Bolinas.Nothing coming through as the tide comes in. Could possibly improve with a different tide, please keep your fingers crossed.
