Daily Surf Report - 4/24/2011

1:00pm Update - sun is out, winds are light and variable. Still surfable.

Happy Easter from the staff at 2-Mile. We are open today until 3pm. Come out to surf before brunch or lunch.

We have light rain and overall wet conditions. Winds are light and sideshore. Ocean surface is still pretty smooth. Current temp is 54F. South swell still showing in the water and there are about 20 surfers out. Still a surf day despite the weather.

Channel: Deeper and inner sandbars producing a waist high left. Longboards and shorter boards are cathching waves. Tide is dropping so get on it early.

Patch: Lot's of rights rolling in. Currently working pretty well. Waves are in the waist high plus range. Inside section working as well before tide hits low.

NEWS: Mini Simmons Surfboards -
Next batch of Mini Simmons are here. We have 5.8, 5.10 with suspension and 6.0. Boards are dope-sauce awesome! Get on one if you want to fly! We have a demo/rental model in the shop so you can give it a try.

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.
