Daily Surf Report - 12/31/2011

Last Day - Good Day.

Sunny, clear, NE winds blowing offshore. Cool at 46F but warming.
NW swell remains and still delivering rideable and rippable surf. Has some juice and push today. Little bit of ocean texture but winds are trying to groom it up. Get it while it lasts.

Crowded again with the Channel having about 25 surfers, Seadrift around 10 and the Patch about 10. Dropping tide is improving conditions in the Channel. Still have some decent shorebreak as well - good for the handplane, surf mat or boogie board.

Channel: Consistent and waist to chest high. Both bars working and the rights at Seadrift as well. Fun lefts that hold up and are shortboardable today. Tide swings will cause changes all day. Good beach and surf day with great weather.

Patch: Also has more energy today with waves in the waist high size. The middle is still working best and cleanest and the inside as well. Big logs can grab the way outside waves before they mush out. There is enough water covering most of the inside rocks for longer rides.

Look what Santa just delivered. A 3-pack of Vernor Silver Bullets. Take the wave catching ability of the Mini Simmons and add a high performance shortboard nose to get vertical. Take your surfing to the next level. We have 5.8 / 5.10 / 6.0 in the shop!

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

High: 4:34 am 5.4'
Low: 11:01 am 2.0'
High: 4:37 pm 3.8'
