Daily Surf Report - 8/5/2013


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"Life is simple, we insist on making it complicated." -Confucius / Barrett
Good day and happy Monday to all of you purveyors of the slide and glide. It's yet another summer gray morning here at the beach. The temperature is bopping somewhere in the neighborhood of 56 degrees and for the moment there isn't even a morsel of wind anywhere. It's all glassy for that Windex shine. Small swell still lingering in the H2O so bring the big Rosanne Barr stick and slide the day away. 
CHANNEL:  The tide is filling in like my neighbor Vicki did between 7Th and 8Th grades. The bars look groomed to support what bit of swell is still in the water. Waist (+/-) over the outside middle bar going left and right to Sea Drift. The Groin Pole has some very tasty lefts that look absolutely stellar for the body surfer of the hand plane kind. Grab a large log and smile. One (1) person here as I write this.
PATCH:  There is still a little bit of swell visiting us here in town and the Patch is trying to hold on. Outside of the Meeting Rock/Bulk Head/Rock there is a waist (+/-) slipping through. Not always clean and naturally you'll have loooooooooooooonnng waits between sets but that'll give you time to catch up on world politics, BART strike debates and discuss steroid use in Major League baseball. Ten (10) humanoids on logs and custodial gear bobbing and waiting.

Adult Surf Camp will be offered from August 12th to August 15th for $320 per person. Camp will last from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm and will include over 3 hours of instruction per day. Students will receive instruction on the beach and in the water and have the opportunity to surf both of the breaks in Bolinas in a range of tides and conditions. Adult Surf camps are the perfect way to quickly improve your surfing skills or learn the basics. Camp size is kept small (4 to 6 people) to ensure students receive the personal attention needed to improve. Advanced registration is required to attend and you can sign up HERE.  Surf equipment (board, wetsuit and boots) will be available to rent from the 2 Mile Surf Shop for your clinic and will be $50/day
