Daily Surf Report - 08/01/2011

Good morning. This morning we have foggy skies, with grey and glassy conditions. The air is warming up from 59 degrees, and the ocean is currently drained out from a negative tide at 7 Am. Conditions should improve throughout the day, as the tide fills in and lets some of the swell get in.

Channel: Low tide conditions with knee high waves crumbling in... last night this spot was fun, and with more water in a few hours, I imagine it will be again...currently 1 or 2 early birds paddleing around at this spot...

Patch: Low tide conditions, with lots of exposed rocks, maybe a little wave on the outside, but not real consistent yet. Again, should get better with a little more water plus a small south swell that should be filling in... Four people on the outside, and a no one surfing inside yet.


The 12th Annual Kahuna Kupuna benefit surf contest will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, California from 7 am to 5 pm. Entry forms are now being accepted and are available at all Pacifica surf shops or via download at

Developed with the idea of putting a spotlight on the ever growing numbers of local avid surfers moving into their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond while also raising some much needed funds for PEF, the Kahuna Kupuna is the only amateur surf contest in the world that offers surfers 50 years of age and over competitive divisions that are set up in 5-year increments as well as offering a “Junior Kupuna” division for surfers 40 – 49 years of age. Kahuna, in Hawaiian, means “Big Chief” and Kupuna means “Grandparent” or, more accurately, “older member of the community who others turn to for advice and counsel.”
