Daily Surf Report - 6/9/2012

First waves are like first tracks. Up early before the sun and in the water at dawn. First waves of the day before another fin has hit the water.

Sunny and mild morning with current temp of 54F. Moderate N winds again grooming things up. Tide is bottoming out and pulling back the curtain to expose rocks and sand. Peaks to ride at both spots if you have a longboard.

Channel: Rideable surf at the Channel and Groin bars. Longboards are the call as waves are in the thigh high + size but soft. Lefts to ride on both bars and some hold up to the inside. Outgoing tide sectioning things a bit but it is a beautiful day with waves for everyone. Little spinners all around. 12 surfers scattered about with more heading out.

Patch: Working a bit in the thigh to waist high range. Plenty of lines and little rollers coming through even as the tide heads low. Breaking way out past the rocks - just way way out there. Rocks and sand starting to show. Should pick up as tide fills in. About 10 in the water.

Summer Time = Simmons Time.

If you haven't seen or tried the Mini-Simmons now is the time. Old and new ideas come together, this displacement hull and almost no rocker has been improved by ending the tail with a double concave and a quad fin setup. The fastest and funnest board I've ever ridden. So buttery and skatey on the turns with speed for days. Works insane in all conditions and ridden ridiculously small. We now have a 5'10" DEMO board in the shop that you can rent to experience the difference.

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