Daily Surf Report - 1/9/2013

Achtung! We will be closing early today but will be open tomorrow at our regular time 10AM.

Hello and goodmorning to you humanoids of the swells. It's 48 degrees and overcast here at the beach this morn' with a little bit (I do mean 'little bit') of swell that has picked up over night. However, with this higher than Bob Marley tide it's really flooding the beach making it difficult to get clean slides at the moment. Again, a radical tide swing is a comin' later today so that could be the best time for wave time. Storms with rain and wind are due later and tomorrow--just sayin'. Also, be careful when entering and exiting the water with these tides. Use good judgement!

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: Waist to occasional, just-under-chest high "things" rolling in about the Groin Pole to Middle inside bar that are section-y and with the tide tend to mush out towards the end. Later today with the changing tide I bet this spot gets to firing. Just hope it does before the rain and wind arrives. Four (4) longboards pretending that it's awesome before they have to go off to work and harsh their collective buzz.

PATCH: High tide + The Patch = Surfing elsewhere. Rolling but not breaking at all. 'Course, later today with that tide change this could be the slide spot. Two (2) Sea Gulls on a piece of drift wood (tandem?)--I kid you not.

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