Daily Surf Report - 6/29/2013

HBD to WBT.  30 today.  Abide
Heat wave, frying eggs, killer bees and more on this hot-hot weekend.  Already 62F and warming.  Full sunshine and light N winds.  Still a bit of NW windswell and a diminishing S ground swell in the water.  A full parking lot already and lots of families heading to the beach.  Tide is heading low so get on it now.  Plenty to ride all over town today so bring your riding apparatus and get wet or swelter inland.
"The National Weather Service is warning residents from northern California, including Sacramento, all the way to southern Arizona of the possibility of intense heat through the weekend that could rival a 2005 heat wave that killed 17 people in the Las Vegas area.  Arizona and the California deserts seem to be in for the worst of it. Temperatures are forecast to rise as high as 122 degrees in California's Coachella Valley, as high as 129 in Death Valley and up to 118 in Phoenix.  Head to the beaches to get waves and cool off."
CHANNEL: A bit wonky as the tide drops and runs out of the lagoon.  Smooth conditions outside on the deeper Channel bar where there are waist high + waves breaking left.  A bit ripped up at the inner Groin bar due to the outgoing water movement.  The inside lefts up towards the Boat Ramp area are smooth, glassy, thigh high and empty.  That is where I would park my log and ride.  Expect sub-optimal water levels soon but the afternoon and evening sessions have had plenty of water and lots of waves as well.  Lots of body surfing opportunities as well. 

PATCH: Scattered waves to ride with S swell surf still lingering and rideable today.  Rights way outside and mid-way as well in the almost waist high size.  Inside waves at the Snags that are smooth and thigh high.  All fun stuff in the water so bring your big board and get a few.  Outgoing tide will get the rocks showing their teeth but the afternoon incoming tide will start up the carnival ride again.

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