Daily Surf Report - 9/21/2012

3 is the Magic Number

Beautiful, sunny, calm and 50F to start the morning. Expect another warm day in the low 70s and that pattern should continue through the weekend. Still have a bit of the south in the water and rideable surf today. Not as consistent as yesterday but still enough energy to get your board moving.

CHANNEL: Tide bottoming out then starting to fil in and there are small but clean waves at both bars today. Inside Groin bar is Egg-able, Simmons-ish and longboardable. Breaking waves that are thigh + to almost waist high. A little waiting period but still waves to be had. Deeper Channel bar wave is better today and clean in the waist high size. Some hold up to the inside and some have sections to navigate. Is fun and smooth with aboout 12 of the usuals suspects in the water + seals.

PATCH: The Patch has a small right working in the knee to thigh high size. Still great for the big log, SUP or kayak. About 8 in the lineup right now. Great place to learn or practice today as the wave is rideable and the tide is coming in.

The Mill Valley Surf Film Festival is happening October 20th, 2012 at the Sweetwater Music Hall. Check out the link for all the day's events and buy your tickets now.

Hey everyone! I have exciting news...

The "Aloha Pass" (an all event pass getting you in to see all 5 features, at least 8 shorts and The Mermen performing at 10pm) went on sale a minute ago. The price of the Aloha Pass is $65 (does not include tax and fees). FYI, Tickets to each Set will cost $10 and the concert by The Mermen is $25. I really want to give you all and other local surfers the first crack at getting this pass before we announce to the general public. . We think they are going to go fast. Here is the link to buy tickets.
