Daily Surf Report - 3/12/2011

Surf's Up! Just fun to be able to say that today.

Clear blue, sunny skies with no wind and a current temp of 50F. Another nice weather day on tap so come on out to the beach and enjoy. W/NW activity on the buoys has brought waves to town today. Some sand moved around yesterday with the extreme tidal activity and it may take a bit for the bars to completely reorganize.

Channel/Groin: Solidly breaking surf in the chest to head high range on the sets. Deep Channel bar and inside Groin bar working with some sections between. If you can connect the dots and draw a good line it will line up for some long lefts. Decent energy in the water and short boards will work today.

Patch: Pieces and parts that are not too organized. Breaking way outside and inside as well. There are a few SUPs, longboards and a surf kayak in the water. Wave size is waist + and you will have to hunt for good waves. Incoming tide may improve this spot later today.

NEWS: Mini Simmons Surfboards -
New batch of Mini Simmons boards are in the shop! Come by and be one of the first to get your hands on the boards. Buy and ride today - it works insane.

With the return of retro and classic surfboards, many surfers love the feel of riding a Mini Simmons board. Based on the early designs of Bob Simmons, who was light years ahead of his peers, the boards were considered revolutionary at the time. They have enjoyed resurgence in the last few years with a massive decrease in their length, and a modernization of their features. The best way to describe these boards is short and wide. The board is a revelation to ride. They are loose, oh so skatey and the fastest board you’ll feel under your feet -period.
Designed so that even the heaviest of riders can go small in size, these boards are ridden ridiculously small, rarely getting over the 6’0” mark. An awesome alternative to the swallow-tail fish which can tend to be tippy and doesn’t handle bigger surf well.

We have new locally shaped SK8 Hand Planes in the shop made from recycled skateboards. Pair it with a set of Churchill fins and you will always have a smile on your face after your session. Each plane is unique and has individual signed artwork. Come by the shop and check them out. Makes a great gift for the surfer in the family.

Awesome board bags from Deeper Visions are flying out the door. Hand-made by a local Bolinas artist. A perfect way to store your board and all are one of a kind. Check out our current selection or ask about a custom order.

Just a reminder to pack your trash!!! PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
