Daily Surf Report - 6/3/2012

Update: 11:24
Rains have cleared, the sun tried to peep out for a minute, there are several mellow overcast wave scenarios with mixed light winds.

Due to water rationing and county cutbacks 2Mile no longer has a bathroom available. There is a public restroom located behind the tennis courts on the way to the beach. Also, Bolinas beach is experiencing a sand shortage so please leave all of it at the beach and don't bring it back on your suit or board.

Buenas Dias! Another day has come to pass where the sun has risen and the waves have glistened. Somewhat calm, glassyness with a little offshore gentle breeze...for now... and a nice 52 degrees. Looks to be another fun beach day, surf is a little smaller today and the tide is low, but our spirits are high, bring a beach blanket and the kiddies and enjoy the day.

Channel: the tide is still recovering from its drastic mood swing earlier this morning, very low -1.6 at 5:13am, so things are a little drained. About 10 surfers out currently and the waves are in the knee to waist high blender range. Super gorgeous little spinners here and there, but the wise man's call would be patience and a higher tide with a super slick log to slip n slide.

Patch: wanna build a sand castle? Plenty of rocks showing at the moment, but you know what...there are still a few little waves creeping through, like the mosquito that got in your tent last nite, or mi amigo. One guy on a SUP, one guy on a log...I even saw them get a party wave on the way way way outside, pretty stoked for those two all alone in the sunrise shining outside patch crumblers. Waves currently double over barnacle with the occasional knee high, maybe thigh. More tide push will stoke you out.

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.
