Daily Surf Report - 1/5/2013

Current temp of 50F with light southerly winds blowing against your cheek. A bit of texture on the ocean but some waves to be ridden none the less. Rain expected tonight and currently overcast with a few rays of sunshine breaking through. Get it while you can.

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: Pieces and parts with scattered peaks across the area. Breaking out front of the boat ramp as well. Size is thigh to maybe waist high and still not too clean or holding up too well but some break and can be ridden and turned on if you have patience. Seadrift still has the best shaped waves today. Low tide approaching so it will become a bit rippy in the middle.

PATCH: Pop up peaks and toe busting rocks making an appearance in the Patch this morning. Still have inside rights to be surfed and the outside peaks are delivering surf as well. Size is thigh high + and big boards are the call. Occasional left can be surfed but be careful as tide continues to drop and rocks reach the surface. Afternoon incoming tide session has been good and clean hopefull we can expect the same results today. Grab your log and cruise.

PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
