Happy Independence day to you all! It's going to be a wonderful day here at the beach what with all of the festivities planned, such as The Bolinas v. Stinson Tug-O'-War (Go Bo!), The parade downtown, food, music and a whole lotta' fun. As for the surfing...well, let's just say that it can always get better. There is currently a pretty stiff on-shore breeze this morning beating up the water surface like the water owes the wind money. If the wind dies down and with the up coming tide you might, M-I-G-H-T get a couple of thigh high rides with the right equipment. Currently it is 56 degrees with it heating up proper a bit later this morning. WE WILL BE CLOSING EARLY TODAY ABOUT 1:00PM! Also: Downtown is now closed to vehicle traffic so keep in mind that you WILL be hiking into town today because of the holiday festivities. Channel: Super-duper small (If you were Stuart Little it would be about head high) with the middle bar waves in the (almost) thigh high size. With this incoming tide it may improve over the next few hours. Let's hope the wind dies down first. About 5 hopeful souls in the water now.
Patch: Too much on-shore wind pushing whatever is trying to emerge...down. Right now it's best on the SUP or kayak, or perhaps something with a sail. We may see some improvement at this location later in the day as tide fills in and again, if the wind dies down. Keep an eye out for evening rights.
