Daily Surf Report - 9/25/2012
Attention! We will be closing early tonight at 5PM!
Aloha citizens of the oceanic kingdom! So far the morning has the gray overcoat on with a side of marine layer. It is currently 54 degrees and we hope to see the sun later today (we didn't yesterday). Still have a bit of that bump in the water and it has cleaned up a bit too. Eggs and planks are probably the wisest choise for today's aqua endeavores.
CHANNEL: It looks to be about waist + today in Le Channel (that's French for the Channel) and it isn't quite as confused as yesterday morning. Big-ish boards will, in all liklihood give one the best hydrodynamic experience here this morning. Patience is what works here best. Remember; Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and again. There are already about 15 explorers investigating this truism as I write this.
PATCH: Waist high rollers are marching through at sporatic intervals and they are right smack dab in the middle of the Clam Patch. The tide is rising and that can effect the swell here BUT the tide will also receed...Tote along your Bruddah Iz signature log and glide the hazy-fog morning away!
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.
