Daily Surf Report - 5/20/2012

Same as it ever was...
Another beautiful sunny morning in BoBo, the seagulls are swooning the trash can delight from the musical parties of yesteryear, perhaps an encore will happen today. We were witness to several canine carvers, shredding the shorebreak this morning, taking bodysurfing back to a feral level with crystalline chambers of aqua marine in the double to triple over paw range and some definite tail wagging juice - - WOOF!

It's a new day and a New Moon...

Channel: Super grande maximum low tide hodad morning, waves rippling and trickling like, like a babbling spring in a sun soaked twilight lit mirage. Three SUPers having a convention on the oustide groin while the log convention has begun with several longboarders, and a couple bodysurfing dogs on the inside. Those things I remember as waves are in the shin, to maybe knee high, if you bend your knees. Don't forget to stretch, you don't want to pull a hammy.

Patch: nada, zip, zilch, nothin, bingo bongo, batman and robin. A lonely SUP is negotiating the rocky reef that is the patch, searching for a wave like Indiana Jones in the temple of doom, Kali Ma...maybe if we have a ritual scarifice today to appease the surf gods on this new moon, a great wave will arise to take us all to the great barrel in the sky...don't drink the kool-aid. No waves currently at this spot.

Summer Time = Handplane Time.

Small south swells will be heading up the coast and there is no better time to start bodysurfing. This is the best way to get closest to the wave curl. Check out the selection of Sk8 Planes in the shop. Re-purposed from broken skateboards. Sealed naturally with linseed oil and beeswax. Individual pyrographic wood art from local Sonoma County artist. Support the DIY spirit and get your summer stoke on!

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