Daily Surf report - 4/26/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Where words fail, music speaks." - Hans Christian Andersen
  

Summer is sneaking up slowly but shows that it is on its way. Current temperature is 56F and growing with the rising sun. Not a cloud in the sky and plenty of beach for everybody. Tide will continue dropping until noon so get in there while there is still some water. Beautiful day to soak up the sun- bring your SPF.


CHANNEL:  Water coming out of the channel right now and continuing to shallow. Sloppy mush around the groin pole but some Sea Drifters can be seen from a distance. Out front looking like every body's best bet this morning, knee+ and not too shabby. Looks like fun. Longboards and remote controls living it up in the fresh morning water.


PATCH: Kayaks and SUPs seem to be the only ones who can find some luck out there as the tide drops. Rocks beginning to be exposed and water does not look ideal. Choppy and ankle high but could possibly get better with the incoming tide later in the afternoon.

Daily Surf Report - 4/25/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well." - Voltaire
  

Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets, but not today as just an overnight sprinkling has occurred.  Now a persistent sun has broken through as we welcome a day of joy and celebration for favorite intern, EmmaGinger. Streets are drying under the unfolding warmth, temp in at 53F and some westerly winds blowing a bit sideshore at the present time.  Forlorn surfers keep your chins up as there is some swell on tap today with combo-ing NW and S swells determining the day's fate.  We have draining water levels as tides race to low but still enough to get your groove on now and later as well.  Play your cards with a steely nerve and find yourself some waves to slide.


CHANNEL:  The Groin bar is resurrecting itself and starting to show signs of returned life.  A few inconsistent, yet rideable lefts, will pop up when the NW angle is just right.  Size mystifies yet appears to find waist high as the norm here today.  Tide is heading low and exposing the sand so take care with the quick exits as the shallows loom.  Again the boat ramp left is the place to congregate as it continues to spout waves in unusual domains.  A bit of a mixed up and warbled shape but there are surfers on it now with rides of moderate length and waist high heights.


PATCH:  A bit choppy outside with paddle wielding kayaks and SUPs taking advantage of the poor conditions.  Inside towards the yet exposed Snags are smoother rights that emerge unscathed and roll shoreward with shape and form to allow for tip time or mellow cruising.  Size is a bit smaller but still just below waist high.   Soon the tide will deplete and force you to change destination but the afternoon incoming should recreate the masterpieces of history.

Daily Surf Report - 4/24/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!" - John Muir
  

A welcoming and determined sun has fought through to shine early rays upon a day filled with hope and positivity.  Less wind and a morning temp of 52F brings an upwelling of emotion as the pre-weekend festivities get started.  The hearty NW swell has faded but is being replaced by a modest SW swell of long period.  Again, low water levels are a limiting factor this morning so consult you tide books and tea leaves for proper planning and preparation.  There will be waves worth riding today - the question is when?


CHANNEL:  The left in front of the boat ramp is holding court today with size restraints going upwards of thigh high and form and shape a bonus.  Longer rides are available and offered for longboards here today but act quickly as water levels continue to drain through the mid morning.  The Channel and Groin proper need more water and time to realize their true selves as currently sand islands are exposed and choppy ankle slappers abound.  The incoming tide push will generate the necessary flow and appropriate hordes as well.  Seek refuge and solace at Seadrift if you dare to take the journey. 


PATCH:  The SW swell pulses are best felt out past the meeting rock which is being exposed more and more as the tide evaporates.  The current yield is short lived yet the middle section reformulates and configures the ocean energy into slideable rights that can be worked for distances far and wide.  Size levels out at just below waist high.  Soon the exposed rocks will win the battle and funnel the crowd into a confined space but for now it is an open field to work with - just on the smaller side of things wave wise.

Daily Surf Report - 4/23/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Space is an inspirational concept that allows you to dream big." - Peter Diamandis
  

Foggy times and SW winds making a concerted effort to thwart sliding activities this morning.  Though a determined sun is fighting through, temps remain chill at 45F. A proper NW swell is active with subliminal S swell activity lingering about.  The low water levels and moderate winds are keeping the lid on potential surf conditions currently.  Exposed sand and rocks give glimpses as to what lies beneath but what needs to roll over is lacking in most respects today.  The incoming tide gives hope for a brighter future and a keen eye on the horizon may just allow you to lay claim to the golden prize. 


CHANNEL:  Only out in front of the boat ramp do we observe any peak worth pursuing.  Small lefts are breaking off in the shallows but are allowing for a drop / turn / run that quickly evaporates.  This wave has thigh high aspirations but seems settled in at the knee.  The Channel and Groin are lacking in water and therefore turned OFF for now.  A diabolical brew sampled by few.  Dimpled water surfaces from moderate winds has this area thinly populated this morning.  Afternoon has potential but approach with caution and optimism only.  


PATCH:  Well outside past the meeting exposed meeting rock the ocean is yielding to the S swell pulses and delivering waves, for surfers, to ride.  Size is realized at waist high and distances traveled are less than ideal.  Distant hoots of satisfaction or bellows of frustration echo in the cliffs as rides and falls are observed and noted.  Much more water is needed to make this spot more palatable but for the hungry few there are waves worth contemplating.

Daily Surf Report - 4/22/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Technique is noticed most markedly in the case of those who have not mastered it." - Leon Trotsky
  

A determined fog remains encamped and gives no quarter, as winds remain light and from the NW. It is impossible to not be taken into  the mist as if entering a fugue state, or exiting from a dream. A trailing NW is circling a newly arrived S, but neither swell is dominating, making for uncertain seas and uncertainties. Though one observes flashes and dashes of brilliance, they are quickly overshadowed by chaos, rocks, and yards and yards of beach. An incoming tide looks to add some clarity, but this is a day that will be what you can make of it. No gifts will be given, only the steadfast and determined need apply.


CHANNEL:  As is now becoming the new normal, there is very little to report, as the groin pole sits on wet sand. Seagulls seeking breakfast are claiming the only slides here. Whitecaps and reality checks are listed on the marquee, so tread carefully.


PATCH:  Though a trio of sliders seeks redemption amongst the rocks and stones this morning, there is often none to be found. Inconsistent and swiftly irregular meet and greet to the far side of the rock, as even those with paddles in hand are being thrown hither and yon. Potential exists here, friends, but you will need the tactical wisdom of the samurai to find the stoke. Keep your eyes on the prize....

Daily Surf Report - 4/21/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Life is and will remain an equation incapable of solution, but it contains certain knowable factors." - Nikola Tesla
 

Yet another morning of the misty morning hop as a dampness permeates the village. A casual wind makes it's way into town as if slowing at a yellow light. Though boards of the logjammer variety are spotted on vehicle roofs, that is where they shall remain as of now, as the sea provides no shelter for those in the tribe of slide. Though with a full heart and compassionate soul, one could seek solace in the later hours of the afternoon.


CHANNEL:  It is recommended that one averts one's gaze from this region, as what is visible brings only tears and grief. As can be the case, a lack of volume and push make another two or eight cups of strong, hot coffee the only sane alternative.


PATCH:  Silence. A quiet desperation. An unyielding thirst met only by futility. As the day grows longer, there should be reason to make one's way into the tumult, but it will require higher waters than at present. Look towards the post-luncheon portion of the afternoon to hold the most promise.

Daily Surf Report - 4/20/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"There is a way to master silence, control it's curves, inhabit it's dark corners, and listen to the hiss of time outside." - Paul Bowles
 

A fine and persistent mist falls slowly as low cloud cover dominates the horizon in all directions, as we find a temperate 54 degrees and holding. The vibrations are, if not heavy, then mixed with a certain reluctant acceptance of what the immediate future holds. One is well advised to seek this lofty state in your own heart and mind, as today may not bring the finest opportunities to our stretch of sand and sea.


CHANNEL:  Slow and low, that is the tempo, as we desperately seek the love below. Low tide is doing no favors, and more water will not likely provide more stoke. The vectors bring only confusion as a mild cross wind seeks to damage what small whitecaps are found.


PATCH:  A forlorn quartet defies logic and all powers of observation and are holding court near the dome of the rock. There is little conversation and intense stares into the distance, with the intermittent short slide being had. As the tide meanders in throughout the morning and into the afternoon, this is the place to set up one's camp, but know that it will be a day with only mild results.
