Frosty morning and currently chilly at 38F. Clear skies, sun and no wind. A damn fine Winter morning here in Bolinas. HUGE tides are pushing back into the later part of the morning so dawn patrol scores as does afternoon surfers. Still have water flowing up the boat ramp and onto the first level of the seawall so be careful entering and exiting the ocean. Smoothness now as last bits of surf show before tide peaks and shuts it down for a little while. Bit of N swell on the buoys and water temp is way warmer than the air.
ALSO: With this high tide comes a lot of flotsom (wood, poles, planks, debris floating in the water) that you can get injured from. So, be mindful when entering and exiting the water. Keep your eyes open and your head on a swivel.
CHANNEL: Fat rollers coming through but having a hard time breaking at peak high tide is almost here. Big board and good paddling skills will get you into some lefts that you can ride until they mush out inside. It is now or wait until tide switches and goes out for a while. Could be good later as lots of water heading out until the evening.
PATCH: Still trying but no bueno with this much water. Occasional small right breaking mid way. With the tide change later in the day this spot may start to work the way you want it to. Keep the log ready.
We still have a few open spots in our next Intermediate Surf Clinic happening on Saturday 12/15/2012. All the details are HERE and signups are online through our schedule.
