Daily Surf Report - 9/24/2011

Groggy and foggy, nah, overcast skies and somewhat still weather. A light westerly breeze is coursing through town, but the ocean surface is glassy and inviting. The swell has dropped considerably compared to the last few days, but there are still some pulses of waves hanging around in the grey atmosphere. Once the marine layer burns off it should prove to be a beautiful beach day. Air temp is around 58 degrees and plenty of people are getting suited up and heading out into the water.

Channel: Regular waves coming through in the knee to waist high range with slightly bigger sets here and there, although the high tide will be slowing things down. There is a pretty fun and ripable sand bar set up out there at seadrift, the channel and groin, so take your pick, and be conscious of other surfers around you. About 16-18 people out and definitely more headed that way.

Patch: Pretty high tide rising, and about 5 barnacles out at the cabbage patch picking kelp carrots and getting some knee high cruises through the inside. Looks like it could be a fun time on the right log or a surf mat.

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.
