Daily Surf Report - 9/23/2011

Sun is out as of 10:15am
Town fog / Glassy Ocean / Swell in the Water / Sun at the Farm Stand.

Buoys still showing NW swell with 9' @ 11 sec intervals. Very foggy in town but sun is 2 mins away shining brightly at the farm stand before town. Should be a great surf and beach day. No wind and temp is 56F

Channel: Regular waves coming through in the chest high size with slightly bigger sets. Bars are firm and there are lefts in the Channel and rights at Seadrift. Lots of surfers in the water and more suiting up. Should be working all day as tide swings are not too drastic.

Patch: From what I can see there is shorebreak energy but it is a mystery in the fog as to what the current surf is like outside. Surfers are coming and going in that direction and there were lines moving through yesterday so a pretty safe bet there is something to ride.

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. Come check them out!

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

High: 9:46 am 4.9'
Low: 2:51 am 2.4'
High: 8:51 pm 5.7'
