Daily Surf Report - 2/5/2012

Surf's up.
It's a beuatiful sunny day out here. Winds are out of the East, the parking lot is full, just like the tide, and waves are crashing and swirling like the primordial soup of our predecessors...

Channel: Waves everywhere, over at Seadrift, the middle of the channel, off the groin and even on bits of the beach. About waist to shoulder/chest high, with a sideshore breeze. Looks like plenty of waves, a little swampy with the high tide, but to be entirely accurate, I stopped counting how many surfers were in the water when I hit 40, so it is packed. Awareness, know you're surroundings and be respectful in the water, catch some sweet sliders and have fun.

Patch: Only two surfers out at this spot, and not much for waves, saw a couple knee, maybe waist high rollers, tide is high, so maybe as it turns we will hopefully see some improvement.

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, and you can check out his work at 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.
