Daily Surf Report - 5/26/2012

Well, it's Memorial Day Weekend, 52 degrees out and offshore winds...the water is cold, the beach is sandy and the cooler is packed, pop a cold one and slide through the majestic beauty that is shin to waist high grinders. Bring out the fam, should be a beautiful beach day, and hoepfully a little surf.

Pet the sea squirrel and recieve a crystal dredgin' malibo grinder.
Put out the good vibes and get some cool rides.
Be safe this weekend.

Channel: shin to knee, touch your knee to thigh, and make your hips dangle, we had a little surf to mangle. A little bit of left, a little bit of right, the seadrift side could be just right. I think the mid tide zone around noon should be the call, swell is up and once the tide pulls its head out of its a** and covers some sand we should see some radical little spinners putting forth their best impersonations of septic piping, unleashing gnarwhal magic upon the chosen few in the right spot at the right time. I would recommend waiting for the tide to bottom out, then have a gander at it.

Patch: rocky rocky, bulwinkle tinkle, me thinks the flood tide shall better serve thee, witnessed swell lines last nite and this morning did I, perchance the patch will roll again this afternoon...not many waves but one brave soul slayed the dragon o'er yonder and gleamed thy cube on green Junod, a board ny more beautiful than thy majesty's waves.

Come by and check out the new art around the shop. Local surfer, shop employee, instructor, and artist Blair Tom has installed some sweet surf totems! Come say a prayer for surf and check out Drew's gumball color explosion Pollack-esque fin installation and Urban's new custom planter boxes with sunflowers and a memorial succulent garden!!!

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