Daily Surf Report - 1/25/2013
Must be skunk mating season as there are a bunch flattened out there on the roads. Prepare for an odiferous drive out but it is sunny, windless and crystal clear at the beach today. Temp is 53F and warming with the last bit of high pressure system still in play. Energy from the WNW swell reaching into town today and it is better in the water than it looks on land. Those that stood on the wall talking and didn't surf missed out while those in the water scored. Glassy and smooth ocean surface and incoming tide a favorable combo to start the day. High tide has water coming up the boat ramp carrying small rocks and toe boulders so be careful and have a plan.
CHANNEL: Tide coming in and peaking in 1 hour but there are plenty of waves to ride currently. Nice little session with only 4 in the water trading off right and left peaks in the golden sunshine. Bowly little lefts off the Groin that heave then cup you and let you bottom and top turn towards the inside. Rights that wall up then back off on a ledgy section then wall up again and race to the inside of the Channel. Long rides to be had if you can pump for some speed. Incoming tide also has Mali-Bo working as well with workable inside rights. Wave heights average waist + with standouts at chest to shoulder. Fun stuff and rideable on lots of board types. Don't watch it - Get on it.
PATCH: Patch still trying to make sense of the swell but too much water has it confused at the moment. Lots of water smashing and bouncing of the seawall right now. Less water will help as there are bumps and lines out there just not breaking consistently. Size looks to be thigh to waist when it works.
