Daily Surf Report - 1/19/2013
It's here! Buoy readings of 6' @ 22s today. Expected to peak and linger for a couple of days with residual energy into Monday. Mini-Mavericks out here in Bolinas today with lumpy, bumpy swell. Lots of water moving around. Stiff offshore winds as well. It may be in the 30s where you live but out here it is currently 55F due to the NE air flow. Surf heights are anywhere from waist to chest to shoulder to head or better. Some waves are not rideable and close out the beach. Some let you in then clamp down. Some have nice open faces and room for turns and a few TUBES were seen and ridden as well. Choose wisely as there are some golden ticket rides to be had.
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: Offshore winds are stiff and holding up the faces. Takes a bit of paddling to get into the waves and down the face. You're off to the races once you are in. Plenty of surf all over the place with the corners working best and cleanest. Rights into the Channel and lefts at the Groin with sizes from waist to head high +. Tides are favorable throughout the day. Giddy up!
PATCH: Big rolling waves breaking in the Patch today. Some are way, way outside and some are mid way and inside as well. Rideable to a certain degree if you choose carefully. Some close out but there are good rides as well to be had. Size runs anywhere from waist up to shoulder or better. Bring your longboard and score today. A nice change from the flat conditions earlier in the week.
