Daily Surf Report - 9/22/2012

Another awesome misty sunrise morning here in Bo. About 50 degrees and glassy, plenty of surfers out there doing their thing with the dwindling swell. The water is warm and it is a great beginner day! Birds are chirping, surf is breaking and surfers are reading entrepreneurial wish wash on their tailgates, stocks are rising and falling, as the tides ebbs and flows, should be a superfragilisticespialadocious day!!!

CHANNEL: lots of people out this morning, and some little skippers coming through. The tide was a little too high earlier but there are some fun little grinders poking their way through. Currently about 15 people on it, a mixed batch of SUPs and longboards, eat your wheaties and get on it. Waves about shin to knee and maybe waist, a few double to triple over unicorn, maybe not the whole horn, but at least solid double over pegasus! Snag your favorite mythical beast destroyer and shred sled away into the morning bliss. There was a surly guy walking back holding Dennis the Menace's ear, so beware the gatekeeper...

PATCH: one guy currently way out, not much going on, some little triple over shamrock dredgers on the inside rock. Grab your shalaylee and snag some wee grinders, and don't forget your lucky charms!

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.
