Daily Surf Report - 2/18/2012

Best wishes and prayers go out to Jim and Martha Robinson who were both injured in a car accident while driving home from the beach last weekend. Jim and Martha are Bolinas regulars and great people. Get well soon and see you back in the lineup!

Fat tide buttery-ness with NW-esterlies blowing. A mix of swells with some long period and wind swell combo. Streaky skies with sun playing hide and seek and a current temp of 50F. Rideable surf in town for all boards today.

Channel: Peaking high tide now switching. Surf in the waist to almost chest high size. Sets off the deeper Channel bar getting up to neck high. Inner Groin bar shortboardable but soft and full. Consistent right at Seadrift if you are inclined. Outgoing tide should cause the rollers to pitch and break later today. 12 surfers in the water.

Patch: Not happening so good here so far. Inside waves about knee high. Could be too much water but tide is now heading out. Only 2 surfers on longboards currently out.

New logs in the shop. Resin tinted and Volan cloth - a classic combination. Big wide noses and fins. Soft, buttery rails to cruise, glide and trim. These are both 10.0' and were shaped by master craftsman, Bob Miller, out of Santa Cruz. These are the last coming out of his shaping bay for a while as he is sailing off to warmer waters. If you want a board to rule the Patch come take a look.

2012 Tide Logs are finally in. Come by to pick one up.

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