Daily Surf Report - 8/22/2013

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
“Still round the corner there may wait, a new road or a secret gate. ”
 JRR Tolkien

Grim times and looooww tides.  Lots of exposed sand bars, rocks, nooks nad crannies to explore this morning.  Overcast and dry with no wind and a temp of 60F.  Perfect weather conditions if we had more water and some swell. A few signs of optimism on the buoys but won't translate to waves until the tide really fills in.  No signs of the man in the grey suit either so game on - if there are waves. 

CHANNEL:  Bottomed out low tide giving us sand to view and no waves to ride.  Some signs of a new steep S swell in the water but not showing here at this time.  Empty line up.
PATCH: Exposed rocks and flat conditions.  IF the S swell is real it will show here best and first so we will keep an eye out for something when the tide fills in.  Late morning / early afternoon are hopeful times. 


The second annual Mill Valley Surf Film Festival is coming up, Sept 13th and 14th at the Sweetwater in downtown Mill Valley. Tickets are on sale now. Looks like a solid lineup this year with Mason Jennings and Rogue Wave playing sets after the films each night.
