Daily Surf Report - 7/5/2012

Good morning! Currently 55F with clear skies and relatively calm winds. Starting to show signs of a South swell in the water. Extremely low tide this morning with lots of sand and rocks exposed. Going to need a few hours of incoming water to cover things up and start the wave machine but signs on the horizon are postive for good conditions later today.

Channel: Sandbars are exposed way out into the ocean. Micro waves that are perfectly hollow and barrelling on the inside and middle bar closer to the boat ramp but not surfable yet except for Sea Squirrels. Should start to improve with more water by late morning and into the afternoon. Currently empty lineup.

Patch: Lines and some white water out by and past the meeting rock. Too low of a tide to work yet but should start to be loggable in a little while as South swells get into the Patch after wrapping around a bit. Keep you eye on this spot for later.

Mission Statement:
Balikbayod—Returning Wave, promotes education through the love of surfing. We nurture the creative strength of stewardship in young people by partnering with communities and schools at the locations we surf in.

2 Mile Surf Shop, Bolinas CA is the 1st stop on the Northern California surf shop tour for our custom 9.0′ surfboard shaped and glassed by Dave Veal with original artwork by local artist Jinan Wong. Here Drew, owner of 2Mile, is showing off the lovely board front and center for 2 weeks. If you haven’t seen this board in person, it’s worth checking out while it travels to the shops. Board is up for auction and proceeds benefit Balikbayod foundation. All the info is HERE

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