Daily Surf Report - 7/30/2012

Geez-O-Pete! That tide came up last night and took just about ALL of the sand off of the beach. So much so that a lot of the past is showing everywhere (the hole at the bottom of the boat ramp, pilings, etc). Of course this also means that this displaced sand should get redistributed as sand bars and, well... you know the rest.
Overcast skies with a slight on-shore wind. The air temp is currently 56 degrees. A small amount of texture but not to worry as the H2O has small but rideable waves today. Bring the big board. Conditions look pretty darn good for renting gear and learning how to surf.

Channel: Has peaks with waves popping up in the knee/thigh high size. Yeah, it's a bit small but this is a blast for walking the plank what with Channel + Groin bars working at the moment. Surfers and SUPs on it right now!

Patch: Relatively flat but wait long enough and a wave will show up. With this in-coming tide this may the call later today to bust out the single fin log and cruise here. 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.
