Daily Surf Report - 3/26/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Every human being is intended to have a character of their own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do." - William Ellery Channing


 
Overcast with early droplets from above.  Light and easing winds now from the NE with temps middling at 50F.  Expect a little sun and a light sprinkling of rain as that has been our norm.  A rather lively NW swell is roaming around with a bit of S windswell to keep everyone on their toes.  Burgeoning high tide threatens to swamp the scene so plan wisely and expect rapid changes.  
 

CHANNEL:
Hefty helpings heaving along the corridor from the Channel across to Seadrift in the deeper waters.  Groin bar showing less energy but palatable lefts and nothing holding much in terms of lengthy rides.  Waist to chest and slightly above can be experienced or witnessed.  Incoming tide will soften as swell fades today.  



PATCH:  Enough S windswell and NW fragments to lure a large tribe of loggers.  A bit wonky in shape but generally smooth with wave heights marginalized around thigh to waist.  A bit too much water causing some slosh and splash but enough enticement to suit up for a go.

Daily Surf Report - 3/25/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"You cannot grow unless you are willing to change.  You will never improve yourself if you cling to what used to be." - Leon Brown


 
Moon slivers above with deep fog below as we jump back into the fray after another day of rain.  Skies above are now rapidly clearing and related blue seeps forth.  Temp of 48F and all the winds quit last night.  Hefty NW swell topping out today with enough S windswell to make its movements known. Tidal swings like personality changes may effect your stoke levels today.  
 

CHANNEL:
Divided peaks attempting extrapolation and consistency as new sandbars compete for your scrutiny.  All along the corridor from the Groin wall through the Channel and over to Seadrift shows options and opportunities to be seizedEfforting at waist high +.  Incoming tide in the late morning will push up against the walls so let awareness be your word of the day. 



PATCH:  
Stepping in a rhythm to a Kurtis Blow
Who needs to think when your feet just go
Who needs to think when your feet just go

Daily Surf Report - 3/24/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust


 
Spring showers at all hours with occasional heavy stuff coming down.  Associated S winds keeps things mixed and well churned.  SW windswell is the predominant force this morning but mainly a disorderly and confused ocean.  Temps are 52F and the storm is predicted to be short lived which remains to be seen.  Some people might say you're going to get wet anyway so suit up.  The choice is always yours to make. 

 

CHANNEL:
Surly and sour in the early light as current storm swirls and saps strength.  Chunky alternatives with little organization make for an exciting option though very little consistency.  




PATCH:  Steep S swell and the windswell options would be readily apparent here if it weren't for the storm and winds.  Finding no shelter or solace so far today.

Daily Surf Report - 3/23/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Don't think or judge, just listen." - Sarah Dessen



Cleared skies with moon + sun as guides is a portent of a wonderful spring day.  Mounted WNW swell and a touch of S nearly hidden has this day on the radar for stoke and slides.  Temps manifesting early at 43F and rising with only the lightest of NW winds to contend with.  Early high tide now easing back has all things good aligned and those not working are in playFind where you fit in and occupy.  

 

CHANNEL:
Energetic offerings with the higher water volumes as combined efforts from the NW reformulate.  Resilient rollers appear and rear with wave heights posturing at waist to chest.  Outgoing tide may help to forge better shape but for now there is something worth a hard stare and a short sampling.  




PATCH:  Smooth and sporadic as the S pulses are buried beneath.  A logging option as what shows goes and slows on the peaking tide.  As above, so below.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall." - Ray Bradbury



With zero rhyme or reason it seems that there is a stormy, choppy, and rugged day ahead of us. The break in the clouds and the 58F temperature leaves some hope but the wind, the storm and the tide seem to think otherwise. There's not a soul in sight but for the wet dog and his family but it seems even they too cannot match what the ocean has to offer today, as they retreat back to the comfort of their van. Although there seems to be a SW windswell, don't expect today to be smooth sailingthere is hope, but it may just be the same hope that came down with a crash on that one dispiriting night Tuesday, November 8th 2016.
 

CHANNEL: 
Picture this: there's a storm out in the ocean, there's no one else around you but there, in the distance is a lone pole with nothing surrounding it. That is what you may find here early this morning. 



PATCH:  Finally, back to the good old days where Bolinas locals have the patch to themselves....but even the lack of tourists on a Spring Break day doesn't seem enough to get them out there. Rugged, rampant, and ruthless

Daily Surf Report - 3/20/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit." - Napoleon Hill



The Vernal Equinox is upon us and so the first real day of spring.  We are greeted and somewhat defeated by moderate NW winds determined to harsh the vibe and play the fool.  Intrepid car campers and damp beach sleepers rise as one to assess the scene and find a corner of stoke to start their season on a good note.  Temps flutter and hold at 56F and leftover swell and wind-bowls are the only charity.   
 

CHANNEL:
High tide dropping but winds aren't stopping in a knock down drag out wage against smoothness.  Tormented and textured peaks drawing hard stares from breakers and takers as opportunity may have already knocked and moved on.  



PATCH:  Somewhat wind shaded but also less swell effected and therefore an option to consider.  Under knee high engagements are offered.  The tide is right and the time is now.
