Daily Surf Report - 8/7/2013


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
"There is no Devil, it's just God when he's drunk." -Tom Waits
Good morning wave explorers of all ages, sizes and odors. It's a bit drizzly out here at the beach this morning and though it's not really much in the world of rain we desperately need anything and everything pertaining to precipitation. Even less today in the watery undulation department but it is a bit warmer at 59 degrees and glassy as all get out. Today is the waiting game. The tide needs to come back in and it will be doing so post haste, HOWEVER a bit of a swell is also what is needed but like every president that has come down the pike in my time, it ain't delivering.
CHANNEL:  Right now the tide is way too low and the sand bars are exposed like Mark Weiner. One must wait until the tide comes back in and maybe, MAYBE with a big enough board you can glide, glide, glide. Three (3) impatient humanoid's are in the close-out, knee high breaking into 6" of water bouncing off of the bottom right now.
PATCH:  Glassy and fickle. The Patch is doing that grunting and groaning thing without really delivering any wave for which to slide upon. Thigh high at the Rock/Bulk Head/Meeting Rock which crumbles then disappears faster than a box of donuts at a fat camp. Maybe later.... maybe later in the week? One (1) janitor we call "The Pelican" out there right now cleaning up and polishing that turd.

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
