Daily Surf Report - 5/6/2012

Another beautiful May morning here in Bolinas. The wind is calm and the temperature is around 49 degrees. Lots of beach goers getting ready for a day in the sun. As for the surf, there's not too much to speak of, but with the right board, a super log or SUP, there might be some fun waves to slide on. Semi glass, slight texture.

Channel: currently it's a little drained out with a super low negative tide this morning, but still some glassy little sliders coming through. About 10 or 12 longboarders out making a go of it. About shin to knee to maybe thigh high.

Patch: really drained low tide, lots of rocks, and one solo mission man waiting out there for the bomb set. Didn't see anything really happening out there, maybe waves later with the tide push.

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.
