Daily Surf Report - 7/24/2012

It's another slate-gray, Northern California morning here at the beach with the air temp at 58 degrees, an on-shore wind that had a lady with a hooked nose, flying by on her bicycle cackling at me, "...and I'll get your little dog too!." Out-going, low tide has a rapidly showing reef and sandbars. With that we can hope that the in-coming tide a little later today, with the on-shore dying down a bit will perhaps give us a cleaner swell and maybe, just maybe we'll get to see the sun as well.

Channel: Wind-chopped but if that wind calms down there is a wave that can be ridden on the log of your choice. Should see improvement as the tide fills in and the on-shore dies down. Currently thigh high, on-shore stuff with one intrepid soul on it with a longboard.

Patch: A bit of Victory-at-Sea with this wind BUT it should improve later with more tide, less wind and an ample log. The rocks are showing their toothy grin so watch out for dings.

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.
