Daily Surf Report - 1/20/2013

It's STILL here! Buoy readings on Pt Reyes of 8.1ft @ 18.2s today. I think it may have peaked last nite like the full tweak poncho clad riding. Mini-Mavericks out here in Bolinas today with lumpy, bumpy swell but be sure to tune into the live webcast if you're not watching the futbol game. Lots of water moving around. Stiff offshore winds as well. 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 crumbly chandeliers are grinding away. Choose wisely as there are some golden ticket rides to be had. Do or do not, there is no try.

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: swell still kicking around a bit in here, lot's of swell lines and sand moved around, some corners here and there. Waves in the waist to shoulder high range, lot's of closeouts but little shoulders here and there too. About 20 guys pretty spread out from middle channel to the boat ramp on mixed equipment, fishes, shortys, longdongs, eggs, and sponges.

PATCH: plenty of people out on longboards and SUPs and some waves crumbling through in the wast high region. A little all over the place but some fun mellow rides to be had for sure.
