Daily Surf Report - 7/22/2012

Well ladies and gentleman, another day has begun, light misty wind chill overcastness, like that of David Lopan has shrouded us, slowly burning and lifting, a somewhat glassy micro textured ocean surface and some little waves rippling through. Air temp is currently around 56 degrees and hopefully we will see the sun soon. A pretty low tide has the devil of the upside down sinners chilling on the exposed reef and sandbars...take yer time, get a solid breakfast in there and hop aboard the Pork Chop express, suit up and snag some waves...and just remember, it's just like Jack Burton always says,
"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Channel: looks a little like this right now, a little rain, a little thunder, and a little lightning.
About 6 surfers on some shin to knee high waves in between the groin bar and the boat ramp, with several SUPers joining the mix. Should see improvement as the tide fills fin and the sun comes out.

Patch: a little too low right now, lots of rocks. Finding a wave right here right now is a rarity like a Chinese girl with green eyes promising immortality. One sea kayaker out there now on the search...
Should improve later with more tide and a belly full of dim sum.

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.
