Daily Surf Report - 1/17/2013

Frosty, white hills with clear, blue skies and full on sunshine. Temps in the 30s in the shade but warming up at the beach and already a balmy 45F. Still have flat ocean but something big is coming down from the north. Very long period swell which has the Mavericks organizers calling for contest conditions this weekend. Not sure what it will translate to here but deeper water canyons will benefit big time. Tides will cooperate and expect offshore winds as well.

We are still flat out here today but looks to be a phenomenal beach day or SUP tour or kayak paddling day as it is clear and beautiful with lots of beach available. Should start to see some ripples as the weekend approaches and we will update you as to all positive surf condition changes.

Be careful when driving the West Marin environs this time of year. Black ice is prevalent and there are still small patches of ice on the road as the sun is low in the sky and it takes a while to thaw out. Drive slowly and with caution.

CHANNEL: Sea Squirrels only conditions. Very small and breaking only on the inside. Low tide-ish so lots of sand and Groin wall exposed.

PATCH: Double over banacle and reeling at the Patch. Shrink yourself down to 12" in height and you will be stoked. As for regular humans - not yet.
