Daily Surf Report - 8/17/2011

1:30pm Update:
I have seen the light and it is accompanied by blue sky and warm temps. 71F currently, with sunshine and light winds. Surf picking up as well.

Good morning,

I really do preffer my mornings to start off grey like this.
Blanket of clouds, 59 degrees, misty air, and best of all, no wind.
And when the sunshine comes (which it usually does) it will be a wonderful change to such a soft start. Speaking of soft: the waves are for sure.

Channel: Soft and playfull little lines coming through the channel, about at the knees. Breaking on the outer groin bar, and with more water, I bet this could shape up rad, the swell is steep, so it is wrapping in at nice little angle, I will be taking my log out later for sure, currently a couple of longboarders out this morning.

Patch: Crumbling sets out the middle, in the knee high zone, very big board required, but ridable....nobody out at the moment...

Limited Edition Surf Art posters now available in the shop. Numbered and signed by Sonoma County surer/artist/historian. Get em while they last!

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