Daily Surf Report - 7/29/2012

Cannonball coming - just like the sunshine. Patchy overcast skies with hints of blue already. Windless and 56F currently. Should be another great day at the beach today. Warmed up to 77F yesterday. Ocean is still nice and smooth and has small but rideable waves today. Conditions look great for renting gear and learning how to surf.

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

Patch: Relatively flat but wait long enough and a wave will show up. Long, long waits between waves today. When it does deliver there are small rights in the knee / thigh high range. Break out the single fin log and cruise here. 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.
