Daily Surf Report - 1/21/2013
Greetings sea fairing humaniods to another week in surflandia. It's sunny and about 56 degrees, which is far better than last week as the swell is also sticking around (albeit, a little less so) and there are waves to slide upon, HOWEVER the hard, off-shore wind is really making for a less-than-stellar situation out here at the beach today. The skinny is as follows; Waist-to-shoulder-to-occasional-head high but the wind is stiffer than a junior high kid with a stack of Playboys. You will need to toss in a couple of extra paddles on your take-off to gain entry into waves today. All boards can work today...it just depends on operator experience.
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: Today, this is the spot for the waist-shoulder-occasional head high goods on the Groin pole and between the Groin Pole and Boat Ramp. The lagoon is draining pretty fast right now making positioning a bit of a chore. Pick your indicator (like the Groin pole or edge of the Air Plane House fence line) and try to keep to it. Closing out mostly but there is an occasional corner to occupy for a down-the-line glide. About ten (10) longboards looking for Mr. Goodbar.
PATCH: Waist high (+/-) breaking/crumbling in the middle of the Clam Patch and towards the Snags. The tide is going out so the backwash/bounce back shouldn't be a factor but on the inside the subsequent rocks will bite you or your board given the chance. As always, the bigger the board the better the glide. The extra couple of paddles thrown in on a take off apply here as well...maybe even a couple more for good measure. Just Hank & Mary out there right now.
