Daily Surf Report - 5/19/2012

It's a beautiful brisk morning, the sun is rising over hills and I think I saw a naturalist trying to mate or counsel a seagull. No wind to speak of, a toilet drained out low tide, and more rocks and sand than I've seen in a while. All in all..IF...the swell picks up a tad and with the incoming tide we could see some playful loggable surf out there, grab a 10 footer and your closest mythological sea dwelling partner and "TALLY HO!" into the great primordial soup from which we came...
Pop your kickstand it's a New Moon tomorrow.

Channel: Lots of current is discernable from the beach, once the tide pushes happens those little cylinders could be rifling through the groin. Right now only two oysters ominously overpowering the oppulent osscillating organic outside wedges, easily double over sea squirrel and pushing gnarwhal and a half on the sets, 1-2ft grinders for the layperson.

Patch: dude...soooooooooooooooooooooooooo drained out right now, more rocks than waves. Saw some little swell lines, potential once the tide rises. Tandem competition at 12:50, discounted entry fee for matching speedo teams.

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.
