Daily Surf Report - 1/10/2012

In case you didn’t know, Bolinas makes many efforts to turn its back to the world and all of the frenetic efforts of Babylon.
And in a sense, the local surf landscape reflects this. For example, on the shores of Babylon: Ocean Beach, the waters are quite energetic right now, probably too much for most to handle.
The south facing shores of Bolinas, have turned their back to the high energy swells of the North Pacific. The waves that get through, they are just at chest high max, more like heart high.
The current situation in town seems to be a rebellion against peak winter surf season. So don’t come with the eye of the tiger, think more Lion of Judah, on a longboard.

50 degrees, clear, not really any wind.

Channel: Tides going high, was probably rad at sunrise, a little swamped out and crowded right now. About 14 people and the tide will be coming in more and more.

Patch: Waist high, peaks popping up all over, mellow crowd, will continue to have surf as the tides will favor this longboard spot for most of the day.
