Daily Surf Report - 7/16/2012

Marine layer overcast continues with a current temp of 54F. Sun came out and it warmed up nicely yesterday around noon. Light SW winds this morning putting some texture on the ocean. Diminishing swell producing small but rideable waves. It remains small out here but still looks like a great day to rent some gear and learn to surf. Afternoons have been fun with less wind.

Channel: Waves in the thigh high size. Still a bit sloppy but there are waves to ride on the middle bar again. Lefts in between the boat ramp and the groin pole are the most promising. Nothing to write home about but it could be fun on the right board with the right attitude.

Patch: Very small to flat here this morning. More water may help but currently empty lineup. Ankle now but worked yesterday in the afternoon.

South swells are starting and if you're craving warm water and consistent waves, visit our friends in Mexico at Manzanillo Bay. Manzanillo Bay is a quick and easy surf destination from San Francisco. Hidden away and off the beaten tourist path, The Inn at Manzanillo Bay is a sanctuary, protected from prevailing winds and large line-ups. Ten steps from your private bungalow is Manzanillo Point—a spectacular left point break.

Whether it's the onsite five star restaurant serving regional Mexican cuisine or the clean luxurious accommodations, you’ll leave the Inn comfortable and relaxed. Oh and there are regular sea turtle hatchings on the beach right out front. Prepare to be impressed.
