Daily Surf Report - 9/2/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"The future starts today, not tomorrow." - Pope John Paul II 

It's as if mother nature knows when the festivities are over. After a sunny holiday weekend and many a fun time, the fog has rolled back in encompassing the bay. No wind to speak of as the air temps are in the mid 50s and bound to stay around there today until the fog burns off if it does at all. Waves are still coming through in the knee to thigh high range with consistent lulls between sets. Nice day to sleep in and have some coffee, maybe read a book. 



CHANNEL: Waves are breaking in the knee to thigh range in front of the groin pole and over in the middle channel. Not much over on Seadrift, but conditions are glassy all around. A handful of logs are out having fun with the lightest crowd we've seen all week. Bring your larger watercraft today. 


PATCH:  Outside patch has rollers in the thigh high range that just keep rolling all the way to the inside Snags before breaking in the knee high range. No one is out, but it is glassy and rides are to be had especially after the tide shifts later this morning.


This week!  All the details here: http://surfthehighline.com/

Daily Surf Report - 9/1/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." - Aristotle 

Set your pens down, stop typing, and come on out to the beach to celebrate your day off, having worked hard all year. The sun greets us this Labor Day as we kick off the morning to another beautiful and fun day. The waves are coming through consistently as crowds are already congregating at both spots. Not a breath of wind as the air temps are in the mid 50s and heating up, bound to hit the mid 70s again today. Bring your logs, your families, and get here quick as parking is already becoming scarce and the beach is filling up. Don't forget your sunscreen, towel, and stoke! 


CHANNEL: Waves are breaking in the knee to thigh range, cleanly peeling across in front of the groin pole. In the middle channel it's the same story with less of a crowd as of now. Over on seadrift a few rights are peeling through in the knee range and will hopefully pick up later today after the tide shifts. Bring your log and stoke as these waves are made for style and bliss.


PATCH:  Waves breaking in the knee high plus range as they are rolling through from the meeting rock to the inside Snags. Some are able to connect all the way through, but as for now it's one or the other. A small crowd of about 8 logs and 2 SUPs are out on a conveyor-belt of rides rotating in the peaceful morning. With the tide shift later this morning, we can expect improvement and more fun.

Daily Surf Report - 8/31/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." - Confucius

Well Bolinas has finally returned to its more familiar self as the last little bit of the Hurricane Marie swell has died off. Bring all your biggest logs today as waves are back to that knee to thigh range all around. Air temps are at 59F and bound to heat up as  the sun is already out and showering us with its rays. The wind is still as of now and sheets of glass encase our bay. Crowds are already starting to form as we start the morning, so get here before the parking is gone and the beach is packed like sardines. Bring your sunscreen and come have some fun.

CHANNEL:  Small waves breaking in the knee to thigh high range as a handful of logs are riding and gliding in front of the groin pole. Over on Seadrift it is the same story minus the crowd. Fun waves all around that should only get better later in the morning and mid afternoon with the tide. In front of the boat ramp a few small waves are breaking and a few guys are out having fun getting slammed in the shorebreak. Whatever your choice is today, it'll be the right one. 

PATCH:  Small rollers making their way through today from the way outside and once breaking, are in the knee high range. About 4 logs enjoying their morning meditation and occasional ride. Longer to longest boards will be key today.

Daily Surf Report - 8/30/2014




Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing" - Socrates



Put them shortboards away fools and break out the logs.  MEGA Marie swell has dropped and surf is now back to a more manageable size.  Swell remnants are here but waves are now more conducive to your longer length water craft and energy levels are back to normal.  Amateurs and beginners rejoice!  Still have a full crowd pouring into town.  Parking is already at a premium and long walks to the beach are expected.  A beautiful morning with sunshine and blue skies making the early appearance.  Temp is 58F now and will get warm over the full holiday weekend.  Expect crowds and general madness and mayhem on land and in the sea.  Know your limits and have an ethos.  



CHANNEL:  Surfable and fun sized waves in the thigh to waist high size this morning.  Tide heading low but water levels are good all day and the waves are spread out from the Groin pole all the way across to the Seadrift community.  Lefts at the Channel now best suited for longboards and sectioned with medium length rides.  Lefts at the Groin a bit smaller but better shape and longer rides to the beach.  Seadrift has rights that may be best today with the current swells.  Enjoy the wealth and beauty in the ocean and go home with a smile on your face.


PATCH:  Roly poly surf outside and well outside.  Longer boards for sure today as it is typical Patch stuff with thigh to almost waist high lumps trying to break on the lowering tide.  Inside waves will work at the Snags as well and size here runs knee to thigh.  It is working but you will need length to get in and maintain speed.  Rideable and glideable on the right equipment.  If you are coming up short swing by as our racks are full of boards that work.

Daily Surf Report - 8/29/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Search out your space, discover your solitude, and leave the turbulence of daily life behind." - Anonymous



Consistent swell staying in play and bringing out all the heavy hitters.  Ripping shortboarders, legendary loggers, retro hipsters, prone pipers and everyone in between.  Much more manageable, clean and rideable today but still has EPIC size for Bolinas and is breaking in spots yet un-named.  Be a hero in the making today by committing to the drop.  Speed to burn and turns a plenty can be the norm depending on your skill level and place in the pecking order.  Big swell spreads things out but lots of surfers in the water and parking is down to nil.  Tides are favorable throughout the day so call in sick to work and find your way to the beach NOW.  High overcast but relatively windless.  Temp 61F and we will have sun by noon-ish.  Grab your surfcraft of choice and jump in today.




CHANNEL:  Chest to head high lefts this morning that start deep in the Channel and remain at the Groin pole.  Not connectable but plenty of face to fly on at both spots.  Looks like Seadrift has cleaned up as well and is delivering rights to ride that have some size bigger than you are used to.   Expect plenty of paddling and the potential for injury and broken boards remains available as well.  Push limits but know limits as well.  Let the crystals guide as they always know best.


PATCH:  Starting in front of the boat ramp and moving north into the far reaches of the Patch there are waves to ride.  Low tide has things pushed out towards the Farallons and size is chest to shoulder high.  Loggers rejoice as this is the good stuff for your single-fin contraption and we don't see surf like this on a regular basis.  Keep it kool and keep it klassy out there today.

Daily Surf Report - 8/28/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"I'm like a walkin' razor, don't watch my size, I'm dangerous, yeah dangerous." - Peter Tosh


Macking combo of S / SW and NW swells continues to pound Bolinas.  Could be considered EPIC - it is at least very big and overhead in most spots.  Some sets close out the beach and some waves pitch, fire, hold up and reel towards shore.  A true combo of everything Mother Ocean can throw at you today.  Overcast, 61F and no wind to help keep things smooth.  Should end up being a sun and surf spectacular later today.  Rabid surfers frothing to get in the water and all parking spots filling up.  Crowd of wall jockeys as well just to watch the spectacle in the water.  Not a day for amateurs or beginners and the corners are best for clean rides.


CHANNEL: Head high + sets as the swell remains solid and in charge this morning.  Deep outside in the Channel and well beyond the Groin pole has surf breaking and rideable for any board or plank you desire.  Inside corner lefts are smaller at shoulder high + but have good shape and enough water to make turns and rip on.  Most are big drops, a turn and closeout but those that hold are are very surfable today.  Crowded but spread out with lots of water moving around and tide hitting low.  Know your ability levels and find a place in the lineup that suits your desires. 


PATCH: Scattered and sizeable at chest high with waves all over breaking and some actually being ridden.  Lots of tide pull sending surfers out and S to areas well out in front of the boat ramp.  More water should help clean it up a bit but for now there is surf here for most boards but not super clean.  More manageable conditions and better suited for beginners today.

Daily Surf Report - 8/27/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"In the end, it's the characters and company that turn activity into passion." - Claire Buchar 


Days like these are what memories are made of, what we recall as one of the best moments of our year. It is mornings like this that we reminisce about for today is beautiful and joyous. The sun has just rose above the hills and skies are clear with no wind. And on top of that, the swell is Pumping. There is a solid 4ft S swell comboing with a 2-3ft NW that are creating some of the best surf all summer. Not only that, but the swell is expected to build and the tide is coming back in which should only improve the conditions. All watercraft are rideable today, from your biggest log to your smallest chip (though smaller boards that aren't fish-like will have a tougher time). Beginners be warned of the size today and know your limits. But regardless of surf, it is a perfect beach day so come on out and have some fun. 


CHANNEL: Head high sets are breaking way out in front of the groin pole and peeling across almost all the way to the boat ramp as a crowd is already forming. The tide is just starting to come back in and should improve the conditions and the size is more than likely to reach that head high to overhead range. Seadrift isn't breaking as well yet, but with the tide expect some excellent rights to peel and reel through over there. 


PATCH: Waist to chest waves are breaking, slightly jumbled, but consistent nonetheless. Should pick up later with the tide as it is just starting to come back in. Still a solid choice today and probably the best place for those absolute beginners.
