Daily Surf Report - 1/22/2013
ATTENTION: We will be closing a bit early today but we will re-open tomorrow morning at our usual time of 10AM. Thank you.
Goodmorning sliders of the sea! It's another sunny morning here at the beach today at a comfortable 55 degrees and yes, that off-shore wind is still here as well. The swell has dropped a significant amount but there are still rolling lumps of water in which to slide upon. Rain is in the forcast for later in the week so get a glide while you can or practice your Gene Kelly impersonation because you'll be singing in the rain.
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: With the off-shore wind and the draining lagoon the conditions here could be a new Ben & Jerry's flavor; Chunky & Funky. Still, it's in the waist plus catagory breaking/crumbling/sectioning right at the mouth of the lagoon. Maybe later with the upcoming tide it'll clean up better than a hillbilly before church on Sunday. Two (2) Barney's out there having fun doing the Straight-off Adolph.
PATCH: Even with this "Honey, I shrunk the Swell" the Patch is pushing thigh (+/-) rights through the middle to the inside and over towards the Snags. Of course, as the tide recedes like Lance Armstrong's career the rocks will be there like a troll under a bridge. There are no takers here at the moment.
