Daily Surf Report 7/10/2012

It's a slate gray morning and about 53 degrees, which means it's a classic West Marin summer day! The tide is going out at the moment which means the lagoon is draining and causing that pesky rip in the Channel and the rocks are beginning to emerge at the Patch. Soft waves are the word(s).
Channel: The Lagoon is draining so there is a bit of a rip through the middle of the channel. S-L-O-W, soft waves (knee high) that are beginning to resemble the Patch (?) and we already have one of those. Puttering through between the Groin pole and the ramp. About 5 desperate logs hoping to catch more than a cold.

Patch: The rocks are beginning to show and the waves are not yet. The poor 'ol Patch is grunting and weezing like a fat guy stuck in a reclining chair but nothing is really happening. maybe when the tide starts to fill in later hopefully we'll see some improvement.

They're Back! Michel Junod surfboards have re-stocked the shop racks. Come by to check out the selection of eggs and classic longboards.

"The “ride everything” movement has sparked interest throughout the surfing world to fine tune previous design movements and incorporate various design aspects of these movements into new exciting shapes that bring unique experiences to the curious and adventuresome surfer.

Living in SC, maintaining my business and shaping custom boards has been my top priority. This remarkable surf town has blessed me not only with many friendships locally, but also has given me the opportunity to build new friendships with people I’ve shaped boards for from all over the world. There is a special joy in receiving compliments from customers who have expressed their gratitude for my making them an exceptional surfboard. I have found that a reputation is built one board at a time."

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