Daily Surf Report - 2/29/2012

Happy Leap Year Day!

Welcome to the day that is not supposed to exist.
The beach has nothing extrodinary to show me right now.
Quite normal actually. Morning sickness, of slight onshore symptoms.
Light overcast from the rain last night, and somewhat warm temps of about 53 degress. There is no crowd, and there still is a little surf out there.
The sun is coming out and I believe today could shape up. Will keep you posted.

Channel: Feathering through the middle section with the onshore wind, surfable little ramps to the inside, but quite small and week in most spots, doesn't get rampy till the inside. 1 guy out.

Patch: needs something, water and swell and I imagine. Ankle-ish. Tide is still dropping.

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.
