Daily Surf Report - 9/17/2011

1:00pm Update:
Sunny, nice, warm. Waves?

Turning the way back machine on today. Come learn the Time Warp as we will be playing the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack - All Day.

Another mild and overcast morning in Bolinas. Current temp is 55. Sun is starting to burn through over the southern Marin hills. Last bits of south swell producing small but rideable waves.

Channel: Scattered peaks with rights and lefts on the Channel bar and the Seadrift side. Size is thigh high and there are a few longboarders in the water. Groin showing a few peaks as well but smaller. Put the new Krypt MT5 surf mats through the initial paces and they passed with flying colors. When you are on a mat it is always overhead. It is truly like a dream. BT and I kept wondering if we were really awake. Come check them out!

Patch: Still a little low tide-ish but that is changing for the positive. Should start to improve with more water but there are still a few inside rights in the knee to thigh high size. Get your afternoon surf here.

In-store Shaper Event:
David Vernor, the man behind Vernor surfboards, will be in the shop this TODAY, 9/17/2011, from 11am to 1pm. This is a great opportunity to talk boards and design with a local shaper. Come by to talk surf or browse the rack of in-stock boards. We have Mini Simmons, shortboards, hybrids, eggs, Mini-Mals, HP longboards and Classic Noseriders in the shop. Always hand-made from start to finish in Santa Cruz.

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