Daily Surf Report - 8/30/2013

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
 “Don’t go through life, grow through life.”
 - Eric Butterworth

Sun is out and surf is on.  NOT epic but a welcome change from the long flat spell.  Rideable waves in both spots today.

Fog but already starting to burn off with sun working its way through.  Paddle out into the relatively unknown as there is not much current visibility but high probability of waves again today.  Decent bit of S swell on the buoys and parking spots are already filling up.  Surfers checking the reports must know something is out there.  No wind and current temp is 60F.  Should be nice weather through the holiday weekend.
CHANNEL: You can hear but not see the waves as they rush towards shore.  Pretty much expecting similar surf conditions as yesterday which was rideable waves in the thigh high + size.  Multi peaks in the Channel.  Inside Groin bar is showing some small rights but the bar is there and they do hold up for rides.  Might be enough water to make it over the wall but watch your fins if you try.  Will update after sun comes out. 
PATCH:  Barnacle crew all headed out to the Patch which loves a S swell.  Might be some waiting for waves but sets will last a while when they show.  First reports say waist high on sets and generally thigh high rights that are working!

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.
