Daily Surf Report - 7/28/2012

SUNSHINE at 11:35am. Temp up to 68F. Looks like the start of a beautiful day.

Another overcast and misty Bolinas morning with current temp of 56F. No wind and sun was in and out all day yesterday so bring some layers to the beach and be prepared to take them off and put them on. Ocean is still nice and smooth and has rideable waves for your longboard. Hoping for more sun later and conditions look good for renting gear and learning how to surf.

Channel: Has a few peaks with waves popping up in the almost waist high size. Small but smooth with Channel + Groin bars working at the moment. Surfers spread out towards Seadrift with plenty of lefts to ride. Bring a longboard today.

Patch: Long, long waits between waves today. When it finally delivers there are small rights in the thigh high + range. Nearly flat but occasional wave pops up that is loggable on a big board or SUP. Higher tides today make this spot one to keep an eye on for later. Currently empty lineup.

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.

And welcome the newest members of the Simmons family to the shop rack!

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