Daily Surf Report - 2/4/2012

Mixed energy and new swell.
Buoys showing 12' @ 13 secs this morning. Surf a bit directionally and tidally challenged but a definite bump up in size and juice.

Sunny, blue skies again and a current temp of 51F this morning. Moderate off-shore wind putting a nice back spray off the back of the waves.

Channel: Both deeper bars producing rideable surf. Consistently waist high with a few chest high sets mixed in. Longboards doing best due to paddling ability with incoming tide and off shore winds. Short boards sitting on the inner Groin bar catching waves as well. Some bowly-bowly sections, some long walls to turn on. Mixed bag of surf for everyone today. Tide switch should make things interesting later.

Patch: Not really feeling it with this swell. Slim pickings again with scattered waves in the thigh high range. Lots of water but not much swell showing. About 3 - 4 surfers out on logs. Bring something big and catch the inside waves which have some better shape.

New batch of Sk8 Plane handplanes are in the shop. Each one has individual pyrographic Haida wood burning images. Functional art that are locally hand-crafted by 2-Mile's, employee of the month, Blair Tom. Come check them out. You wont find a better way to get closer to the wave curl and you will have a blast in the water.

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