Hello and a wonderful goodmorning to all of you water gliders! It's a battleship gray morning and the temp is currently bobbing around at 54 degrees. The sun came out for a cup of coffee yesterday afternoon but only for a minute and then it pulled the cloud cover over itself and went back to sleep. Must of been Decaf. Hopefully the sun will stick around today...if it shows at all. Oh, right...surf stuff. There is still some energy left in the ocean as well. A little textutre on the H2O as a wind is blowing from the South East. Come on out with a sizable plank and have a good glide.
CHANNEL: Still have a waist to-an-occasional chest high (set wave) rolling through the Channel this morning. Looks to be that Sea Drift, the Middle Bar and the Groin Pole all have a Muddy Waters Mojo working. Bring a log or any old floaty thing you may glide upon. Seven lumberjacks and two janitors out there right now chopping wood and cleaning up.
PATCH: Thigh high rollers sleepily churning across the middle of the Clam Patch. Not a heck of a lot of energy there right now but it's fun for working on that footwork or practicing those Phil Edwards knee-drop cut backs. Five humans there right now gliding the blues 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.
