Daily Surf Report - 7/5/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity." - Edgar Allen Poe


A slick and slippery road brings you here today on this lovely July morning. Dark skies and wet air rule the day. Morning mist coming down a little harder than usual today keeping most campers indoors. With a current temp of 62F it feels muggy. Low tide just hit leaving the rocks out to get some air. Swells are not working all too well at the moment either. Looks like a great day to stay inland and keep warm though the afternoon vibes have been aligning positively. 


CHANNEL: White water swirling resembles a washing machine. Sloshing around in the mess is a piece of driftwood that looks like it is not having the best of times. Not waves here due to low tide and stormy weather. The only proof of existence is seen by hungry pelicans protecting the Groin sign.  Approach with caution and reservation.


PATCH:  Rocks causing a bit of trouble as they take up the entirety of the patch. The only puddle of water more than waist deep is claimed by a few SUPs and logs. Choppy here still, nevertheless a small amount of brave souls accept the challenge. Knee high at best.  As tides advance so shall conditions.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life." - Mahatma Gandhi


An emerging sun warms a day set for excitement and explosive celebration.  Settled calm in the village about to be shattered into oblivion by a swelling population and masses beyond count.  A quiet storm about to rain down with antics and attitudes that will span the gamut of experience.  A battle for strength and supremacy will kick the festivities off and for those seeking Serenity Now - Bolinas may not be on your destination list today.   If you are  desiring of ocean slides the day has potential but true fireworks will take place on land today. Draining tide will mix with NW windswell and a new SW swell but not enough ingredients to add the full flavor one seeks.  For those up early and cracking the dark precursor blips have favorable shape and palpable energy.  The day will grow long with sunshine and warm temps.  Saddle up and ride as the experience will only help to fortify the future. 




CHANNEL:  Ripped and raunchy as the bottoming tide causes mayhem and sand shifting of an unholy configuration.  Pelicans have staked claim and are occupying the Groin wall and exposed sandbars.  Whitewater frenzy and no shapes of consequence can be observed and only short glances are appropriate.  Seadrift exposures seem to moderate the current atmospheric conditions and take the NW windswell in like a lost traveler.  More water is the key to unlock the secret but the answer may not be what you hope to find.


PATCH:  Early morning water levels giving hints and wafts of what can and may be.  The truly conspired have arrived to reap small benefits from SW destinations.  Now the rocks show in full force and a governmental shutdown is in progress.  Less than no water makes for less than no waves and the search continues for that one solid ride.

Daily Surf Report - 7/3/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"I like crazy people, especially those who don't see the risk." - John Lydon


A deep calm settles over the village as we greet the morning and an unwelcome mugginess. Currently 60 degrees with a rising mercury and rising seas. Though current activity levels leave much to be desired, parking is already at a premium, and will remain that way all weekend. Though the ocean tells so many of us what we already know, it appears the message is not finding purchase in the minds of the determined and disturbed this fine day. Though the holiday vibe is upon us, a swell is not, so know which experience you seek, and find it justly.



CHANNEL:  Islands in the stream. That is what we are. As a lone figure in black bobs amongst the pelicans, the only puzzlement is why. Spiral jetty vectors as large patches of sand are all that is visible. Though higher water levels may hold potential, only time will tell. 


PATCH:  A barren patch at this early hour should speak volumes to those who hear the true word. A quality calm and a manufactured stillness are what one finds available. A true test of timing and will is what you will find on tap. Fancy a pint?

Daily Surf Report - 7/2/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Jr.


Balmy and inviting morning as temp looms in at 61F.  Magical mist swirling and shape-shifting amongst the peaks and valleys.  Wisps above and moving figures below cause pause and careful contemplation.  Logic may be defied but harsh realities must be approached head on.  Faint and fading swells are confounded by total lack of aquatic resources.  Sand islands emerge from the morass to lure a more detailed review.  Waves of consequence do not currently exist though a hint of potential lingers in the air.  A rising tide will help the cause yet like most revolutions will require patience and planning to achieve full results.


CHANNEL:  A close sandy bottom reveals contours upon which waves shall break in proper conditions - not currently present.  Supremely low tide has water levels below nil and what water flows and folds lacks both size and energy.  Careful planning may yield a more positive result as the Mali-Bo bar realizes water is to its liking.  For now we wait / watch / wonder.  


PATCH:  Wonderment to behold as with no water and all rocks at full attention there seems to be a wave navigating the cracks and crevices with knee high undulations.  Un-ridden and un-encumbered and rightly so as toe jammers and ding slammers are the norm under current conditions.

Daily Surf Report - 7/1/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first." - Jimi Hendrix


A chilly morning mist hangs over us this morning as we begin to awaken. The morning temp is currently 59F but if yesterday were to repeat itself the fog would burn off around lunch time. A party of sea lions cruise past the boat ramp guiding the eye to the channel where the only crowd gathers. The tide is rising as of now and will continue until 1pm. Pray for surf and hope for sun.


CHANNEL: Yet again a crowd waits for something to stand up on or at least belly ride. Not much momentum pushing making waves crumble after just moments. Ankle high here and luls seem to last a lifetime. May be better after lunch.


PATCH:  Not a soul is seen in this area. A rare sight for the Patch at this hour. Forlorn followers facing a stark reality. Rocks peeking up from the low levels of water but are beginning to cover up. Best option is to wait for more water. No sign of surf yet.

Daily Surf Report - 6/30/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"The revolution that takes place in your head, nobody will ever see that." - Gil Scott-Heron

A balmy 58 degrees as we wonder what happened to the "Sunny California" from the postcards. A heavy mist hangs down, and brings with it an air of defeat and malice. The ample parking should relay volumes with regard to current conditions, but this revelation will fall largely on the vacant stares of the faithful and vigilant, as a small gathering of the suited and booted still seek slides of import. As the hours roll forward, the sun may make itself known, and the prince of tides should bestow marginally improved conditions, but know the battle that faces you, friends, and choose your weapon accordingly.



CHANNEL: A modest approach may yield benefits as the morning grows long, as the patient and grounded seek the current left. Though small in statue, the rake of said shape is providing those that know the steps the opportunity to dance for a moment, or perhaps longer. An increase in volume should make the inside of the marker an area to watch with the hawk's keen eye.


PATCH:  Always an odd sight to witness a barren patch at this hour, as even the vampire crew seems to be absent. Though marginal shapes show signs of shadow, and bounce water hither and yon, the shapes one truly seeks are absent. Though it is without doubt that there will be those who insist on donning the suit and seeking the stoke, there needs to be an understanding already in their hearts that the smiles should come from within. The ocean gives no quarter, and any time spent in it should be valued.

Daily Surf Report - 6/29/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson


Mixed tides, mixed feelings, mixed messages, and mixed metaphors as we greet a muggy morning here in the village. Currently 58 degrees and expected to rise as the clouds make their way inland as afternoon breaks. As is the custom, this day looks to you to determine what treasures are reaped from the sea. Will shapes that bring slide and stoke make themselves known? Yes, but with this knowledge needs to come an acceptance of the reality of our situation. Temper your expectations, center your chi, realize your target, and become one of many becoming one with the cool waters.


CHANNEL: A dynamic duo studiously chase a largely mythical left, as overall power is lacking, as if from a shoddy generator. With the right kind of vision, one can feel the possibilities as we approach the luncheon hour high tide, but these stalwarts are making something from almost nothing currently. The portions may be small, but if you choose to dine at the prime time, than the soul's reward you might find. 


PATCH:  As morning brings with it the usual suspects, and we find that mix of those who paddle on belly and knee as well as those with carbon sticks, the current lack of shape begs the question; what do you seek? The posse largely plays a waiting game, though  a single sniper is far outside, and reaping the benefits, with rides of many yards. With the tides as they are this fine day, and with our fair waters in general, arrival and departure times will be vital. The sun will shine, and shapes will form. They may not be the stuff of legend, nor helicopter's carrying photo and video jockeys, but smiles and satisfaction can still be yours, that's up to you.
