Daily Surf Report - 5/27/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“Do not fear mistakes, there are none." - Miles Davis


Yet another morning shrouded in damp, mist, and darkness. There is little change in temps in what has begun to feel like weeks. One is tempted to steep dark tea and view Ice Station Zebra on an endless loop until the end of days. Do not yield to this temptation, as there is reason to rejoice as one looks to the seas! Parking is already minimal as the dedicated and deranged seek solace and smiles amongst slides of merit and consequence. The low tide will not do her usual damage, and winds remain very light, so make your choice, steel your nerves, get in, and get out.


CHANNEL:  It does make the heart sing to see shapes of this caliber just outside the marker, our vigilant sentinel. A peeling right is holding court, and the determined are taking heed. The angles of said shapes are more severe than usual observation indicates, and among the rod, reel, and tackle that bobs in the waters this morn, one observes several of the thruster tribe making the most.  As is the custom, a lack of water will be in play as day moves on, but pay attention and give thanks.


PATCH:  The rumble and tumble of the past 48 hours simply refuses to retreat, and the devotees are taking notice and suiting up. Slightly more inside than at the higher tides of days' past, but slides are being had that inspire jealousy and much as they do stoke.  There is marginal time between the shapes as they approach the craggy coastline, but these moments may be needed to recover and reset. This will be the place where bodies will gather throughout the day, so be aware of your neighbor, and against all evidence to the contrary, hope they will do the same for you.

Daily Surf Report - 5/26/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries." - A.A. Milne


So this is permanence. Or so it feels, as we stare into the heart of yet another misty morning, with a damp that encloses the soul and clouds the mind. Though temps in the mid-50's and very light winds speak of better conditions as the day unfolds, only the heartbeat of the clock knows the ultimate truth. After the pomp and circumstance of a long weekend, the village returns to it's abnormal state, with only the usual dawn patrol sliders taking advantage. Today has certain possibilities, if one pays heed to tidal charts and broken hearts.


CHANNEL:  A determined duo seeks slides and smiles amongst the fishing line and canine swimmers, as they sit just to the inside of the marker. Though it is with a keen eye that shapes are observed, and are being ridden, though price may vary by location. Look for the retreating waters to offer no favors as we approach high noon, but look ever forward, as the tide will return, and could make someone's afternoon worth reverie and reflection.


PATCH:  A solid line casts shadows and whitewater is plentiful, as a six-pack of those black-clad warriors make their way into the depths. A right one might refer to as aspirational is gaining attention, and with good reason, as rides are currently lengthy, and offering some walkabout potential. As stated above, arrival time will be paramount today, so take heed.

Daily Surf Report -- 5/25/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."-George Washington


A timeless mist covers the village in a permanent damp as the mercury hovers into the mid-50's. Low clouds and a menacing fog creep through one's peripheral vision as all eyes turn towards the sea in the early hours. Though the weather does not speak of visions of backyard barbeques and lawn darts, the breakers are making a different party known currently, as a baker's dozen are attempting slides and stoke. As per usual, watch the times and tides, as our piece of paradise is, at best, temperamental. 


CHANNEL:   It warms the heart and shocks the mind to see the pole surrounded by human forms as it is currently. Logs mix with shorter molds and shapes for slides are currently on tap. The key will be timing this morning, as the volume is slowly making things less so. Parking is available, but that is only due to the early hour. Be mindful of others as your seek your bliss, as your shall not be the only one.


PATCH:  A surprisingly barren patch as we gaze towards the far side this morn. Even more so given the solid forms holding court and finding a route to the shore. It seems as though only a select few are seeking solace without paddles, but they are enjoying slides measured in yards, not feet. Will you find yourself amongst them today? Mid-day lows will harsh one's mellow, so be aware,  the breakfast and dinner menus offer the promise of satisfaction, the luncheon menu may leave one wanting, and wondering how to pay the bill.

Daily Surf Report - 5/24/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." - T.S. Eliot


Mysterious morning with fog settling in and swirling about.  A sinister SW wind putting the bite on the temps and rippling an already unwelcoming ocean surface.  Sun is an enigma presently and may stay reclusive.  Temp is 53F and fills with mist.  Just a steezy mix of sloppy windswells on tap as buoys stay silent and await the new arrival coming next week.  For now we all Try Wait for better conditions.   


CHANNEL:   Tide still drop drop dropping to bottomless lows.  What water remains is a janky jumbled joint justified only by the dawn cracking crew that must get wet.  Textured surfaces lend to the allure and waves of non-consequence rise up just above one's knee cap region.  Hoots and hollers were to be heard through the resounding gloom but whether they were of joy or frustration was unclear at present time.  


PATCH:  Those waiting for the new S swell have staked their claim in the Patch and likely are about 48 hours early.  Holding steady, smooth and flat this morning as water levels recede and hope fades into oblivion.  A better bet that does bring interest and excitement will be the afternoon into evening tide push which may stack wave heights above the current ankle range.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success." - Swami Sivananda

A welcoming patch of sun signals a prosperous start to the day.  No winds to ruffle feathers or ocean surfaces and temp alive at 56F.  Already lots of people posting up for the long weekend with all manner of aquatic and land based toys to play upon.  Mr. Surf&Swell being rather uncooperative lately with just NW windswell of moderate levels and a fading S on tap today.  Low morning water levels still a limiting factor so check your tide books and plan accordingly.  Still a few puny pieces out there to keep the stoke alive just keep expectations relevant.  Expect crowds upon crowds as the calendar says summer is starting and you must go to the beach. 


CHANNEL:   Groin bar and Channel area have bottoming out low tide and nothing but a frothy mix of whitewater and sand.  Fishing looks to be the sport of kings this morning as surf perch dominate the lack of waves here.  Out in front of the boat ramp resides the lone level of waves with knee high left and right peelers that will get your blood pumping and enthusiasm peaked.  Stand and deliver as the waves won't currently allow for much more.  Later morning into the afternoon will see a tide push and should hold some windswell peaks for performance art. 


PATCH:  A smooth canvas largely undisturbed by rolling surf.  A beautiful sight to behold as pelicans soar and swoop upon unsuspecting fish.  An owl hoots a forlorn song of lingering and loss.  A deer prances upon the exposed shoreline - looking for a trail up to the forest.  A whisper of the fading south can be heard if not seen as undulations fail to permeate the unbearable silence.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way." - John C Maxwell


No surf solace to be found this morning though the temps have climbed to 57F and the sun is breaking through the morning gloom.  A deafening quiet permeates the land and sea as the ocean returns a silent protest.  Water levels continue to be a pesky nuisance as they remain largely below sea level reducing the aquatic playing field exponentially.  Much gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands will occur during the early morning exploratory efforts but hope remains in our hearts and on the horizon.  A small blend of NW windswell and a touch of background S remains active amongst the oceanic depths.  More water will allow for slides to appear but that will take into the early afternoon to fully materialize.


CHANNEL:   Tide continues to drop and relegate the wave potential to real estate best suited for sand castle building and surf casting.  Already micro-sliders registering in at knee high or less will soon be further reduced to less than nothing.  Even the early morning "on it" crew has foregone today in search of better pursuits.  Just out in front is a very small left that may temp loggers yet may be best suited for our RC surfer friend to really shred the gnar.


PATCH:  A lone jousting gentleman of distinction has saddled up his trusty mare and wielding a paddle made of carbon fiber will attempt to do battle with much of nothing.  Flat as can be and low water to add to the current insult.  A day for paddle touring or swimming perhaps but surfing currently is a no go.  More tide will allow the fading S swell to once again spew forth some one hit wonders well outside but that scenario is best played out during the latter parts of the the day.

Daily Surf Report - 5/21/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
“Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water." - Christopher Morley


Temps have risen to a balmy 56F while water levels remain largely below sea level not favoring those looking for morning rides or slides.  A perpetual damp hangs over the village bathing the sphere is a dour mood.  A temperate approach is best utilized this morning as there are rollers with a small amount of push yet many non-aquatic obstacles that must be navigated at all points between.  Hours must pass before any type of tidal push will be realized and all swell pulses are currently wind generated and lack real energy.


CHANNEL:   Nothing but exposed sand as far as the eye can see.  No takers and rightly so as the ocean is quiet here and that speaks volumes.  No water = no waves.  A simple equation that sometimes remains a mystery to many.  More water will invade during the early afternoon but mind the winds as they have been know to pick up and blow things out. 


PATCH:  A hint of SW swell seems to be making its presence felt this morning.  Although lacking in water there are waves popping up outside of the meeting rock in the lone deep spot remaining this morning.  A small flock of loggers has claimed this area as their own and are doing the Watusi dance amongst the exposed toothy stones.   Size rears up to knee high and power is lackluster at best but rides are being observed and a distant hoot may have echoed through the canyon.
