Daily Surf Report - 12/14/2012

Only 11 more shopping days until Christmas. Swing by to check out all the great gear we have for the surfer on your holiday list.

Cool but no ice. Overcast and almost rain but not quite. Temp is 45F with light fog and no wind. HUGE tides are pushing back into the later part of the morning so dawn patrol scores as does afternoon surfers. A small amount of water flowing up the boat ramp and into the seawall so be careful entering and exiting the ocean. Diminishing N swell and high tide starting to shut down the surf. Still a smooth ocean surface as wind remains nil.

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: Empty lineup with 1 guy checking it. Possible inside Mali-BO but angle is a bit off. Occasional Groin bar waves going thigh hig but you will need a longboard and good paddling skils to make it happen. 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. 9' of tide swing from high to low.

PATCH: 5 surfers and SUPs in the water most likely having a tea party as waves are intermittent. Still trying to produce but incoming tide is flattening things out. Occasional small right breaking mid way. Knee to thigh high when it breaks. 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 this Saturday, 12/15/2012. All the details are HERE and signups are online through our schedule.
