Daily Surf Report - 8/28/2013


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"The only thing 'new' is you finding out about it." -Mike Watt

ATTENTION! We will be closing a tad early tonight but fear not as we will re-open tomorrow at out regular time of 9AM.

Ah- the smell of the sea and the feel of the fog. Paddling across the lines of frothy white water as your once warm and dry wetsuit begin to saturate with Mother Ocean's essence. You paddle for the outside as the emerald plate glass which you stroke and glide upon begins to move, as if alive and change it's once prone angle into a pitching ramp as it heads towards you. You suddenly stop paddling and sit bolt-upright upon your steed watching the green mound grow bigger and steeper as it quickly approaches. Turning your steed toward shore now you never take your eye off of the approaching mass and as it nears to where you can almost smell it's salty breath... it's now! You calmly lay upon the knife edge weapon and take one, two, three long deliberate strokes as you feel your legs begin to pitch forward and you're looking down the green embankment. Here, at the top of the wall you spring to your feet feeling the wind rush past your ears, with knees slightly bent you quickly slide to the bottom of the wave steering your hydro steed to set up your first turn on the bottom...
Remember surfing? Yeah, me too. I sure miss it.  The sun is trying to peak out from the foggy shroud as it's 59 degrees and not a lot to write home about.
CHANNEL: Knee-to-thigh high crumblers for that "straight-off, Adolph" cruise. Nothing really clean as of yet and the tide is going back out which means the lagoon will be draining. Bert & Ernie on the custodial gear out there right now going straighter than a GOP candidate in the front pew of the local church.
PATCH: Question; What's flatter than a tortilla....

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.
