Daily Surf Report - 6/11/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.” - Theodore Roosevelt

A menacing mist hovers, lurks and leaps at every turn as we begin another day of Northern CA summer.  Bellowing roars are emitted from the foliage but not from the winds which remain calm, peaceful and slack.  Temp slinks in the back door at 57F and should hold steady and mild with sunshine an unselected option today.  What little SW swell energy remains is fading and requires the incoming tide push which will shortly reach its apex.  Still a stoked and frothy crew out to charge the early morning offerings which although height challenged still delivers slideable sled rides for your surfing enjoyment.

CHANNEL:  Incoming morning tide has things off to a meandering start as water levels slowly rise to middling levels.  The Mali-Bo bar is returning to form and seems to be shaping up as more water pushes over the top.  Workable rights that may only hit thigh high can be molded and modified to suit your needs.  Small boards can run but not hide from shallow inside conditions that make exits as fun as entrances.  Lacking in overall energy yet shaped by wind and sand - the rights just beyond the Groin pole have suitable potential and enough positivity to make suiting up a goal today.  

PATCH:  Last gasps and filling tide have the weathered and wise holding court deep in the Patch depths.  The waiting game must be played and the rewards are always what you make of them.  Peeling poppers that are slopey and stalwart hit just above the thigh and yet below the waist in height. Now is the time as water levels will soon diminish and take with it the required means to make this spot pleasant and palatable. 

Important Note from the Bolinas Fishing Community:
When heading out the Channel,  the fishing boats have a very narrow slot to navigate and the fishermen have to "thread the needle" to avoid having their boats dumped by waves. The boats don't have the ability or opportunity to veer away from oncoming waves and must take them straight on. Surfers - please practice Ocean Courtesy when boats are heading in and out of the Channel and paddle out of the boat's path to let them through. This will also help in avoiding being run over by a boat at speed.
