Daily Surf Report - 1/27/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"My heart, to put it more simply, got nostalgic for the present. Always a bad sign." - Jonathan Lethem



A gray and heavy light parachutes it's way into town this morning, finding a humid 58 degrees with ominous gusts blowing in from the sea. These gusts find empty concrete above the boat ramp as the usual hustle and flow of the parking areas are absent currently. The recent swell from which we all benefited is no longer, leaving only an ominous silence.


CHANNEL:  Whitewater curls and shapeless forms. Absent any sliding or potential therein. With the tidal conditions, the situation does not look to improve.
 


PATCH:  If only I had other news to report, but it is not to be this AM, as no souls brave these waters either. Sturm and drang with extra sand is the only dish being served by the sea. Other activities might be best undertaken.


PACK IT IN. PACK IT OUT.

Daily Surf Report - 1/26/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"I am not strong on perfection." - Jasper Johns



Behold a pale light and beautiful morning as we find a rising temp currently hovering around 55 degrees. The fog is fading and sliding bodies can be seen taking what is being offered today. Parking is close to full as the last of the recent swell continues to make itself known.


CHANNEL:  A combination of too little water and too much wind are cooking up a soupy mix of froth and emptiness. The gulls ride alone and we sit and wonder what tomorrow may bring.
 


PATCH:  Despair not my friends, as very solid and lengthy rides are being had on this side o' the ramp. Though the height is only several hands, they are holding shape and rides of multiple time zones are being observed. Access is easy and smiles are being had.

Daily Surf Report - 1/25/2015




Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke


Glistening peaks shine with the morning sun. A beautiful start to this January morning. Not too chilly at a current temperature of 55F. A good breeze comes along with the W swell.  Shake off the night's festivities and take a cool dip in the ocean to cure your ills.


CHANNEL:  Inner channel is working good. Walls coming in seem to be mystical mile long. Lots of potential catching one of these wait-chest high rollers coming in. Looks to be not too shabby with the now incoming tide.  Keep surfing.
 


PATCH:  Short but fun lines occasionally passing through and water looking clean. Knee high but not looking bad. Some are dying off every once in a while so choose carefully and consult your crystal specialist for supreme accuracy.

Daily Surf Report - 1/24/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain." - Joseph Campbell 


Keeping the lows not too low and the highs not too high and on the positive tip this morning.  New W swell continues to fill in and max out today.  Clean conditions prevail and peaks are abundant.  Anything goes as all watercraft are hitting the water with reckless abandon.  High pressure and warm weather deliver offshore breezes and warm temps with full sunshine and joy.  Just passing low tide and expecting even better conditions with more water.  The lineups are full and the parking is already nil.  Sizzling elements are in place for a great beach weekend.  Expect everything a beautiful Bay Area day can deliver and MAS.


CHANNEL:  Outer Channel is chipper with consistent lefts that have shape shifting potential and are beyond belt high in size.  This wave is best suited for longboards and those that can generate paddling speed.  Inner Groin bar sliders are thigh to waist high and have more activity range as they move along the sand towards shore.   Hold your line and set your sights on the horizon as you navigate the morning congestion and try to find serenity on a wave.
 


PATCH:  Prismatically challenging as the sun ranges over the hills.  Glistening peaks and plenty to choose from.  Outside bomborra waves for the log jammers that have the slow cruise before dissolving.  Inside waves reform as they hit the burgeoning bottom and are racy with massive yardage potential.  New limits get set and memories are being made.  Ceilings are shattered as you reach levels above 1.  Size is the perpendicular square root of the crystal component which in layman's terms is waist to chest high.  A myriad of options to sample as the W swell direction is finding contours worth exploring.  


Strewnfield by Thomas Campbell // A Life in Transition by Brian Gaberman // Returning Gold to the Sun by Charlie Callahan opens next Saturday, 1/24/2015, at the Bolinas Museum - 4pm.
There will be a ripping after party at the Community Center from 6-9pm with live music by Tommy Guerrero, The Sandy's and Fantasy Bracelet. Soup and food from chefs Charlie Hallowell + Samin Nosrat. Beer from Lagunitas. Mini Simmons surfboard raffle prize and other goods courtesy of 2 Mile Surf Shop! Should be a good time so come out if you can.

Daily Surf Report - 1/23/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"In times of joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag." - WH Auden 


New primary W swell is upon us.  Moderate height with a good long interval.  Starting to show now and will fill in and improve throughout the day and into the weekend.  We also have clear, sunny skies with a high pressure system over the region.  Unexpected colors on the horizon and a sunrise beyond words over the S hills.  Expect warm temps, offshore winds and smooth ocean conditions.  All the makings are in place for an EPIC beach weekend.  


CHANNEL: Outer Channel bar swell suited for longboards and breaking both right and left in the chest high realm.   A bit on the low tide side so pick and choose those with more water rather than less.  Towards Seadrift the rights hold form as well and can be surfed with abandon as the crowd is thin.  Off the Groin bar the lefts reel and are hollow yet hold no openings for exits or expression.  Pull in and shut out the world for one second.  Low tide making waves jack and pitch but mind the bottom as it comes up quick.  Size runs waist high and better and the in-betweeners tend to hold the most shape and promise.  Incoming tide should smooth things out and level the playing field. 
 


PATCH:  Punchy with peaks a plenty and enough water to make things interesting.  Longboard festival as there are plenty of rides being delivered and size is waist to chest outside.  Inside rights revel in the W swell and pulse along towards the sand.  Mind the rocks as they lurk and see all.  They are covered but only by a threadbare blanket.  Risk vs. Reward is to be contemplated wisely this morning.

Daily Surf Report - 1/22/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason." - Ralph Waldo Emerson  



The scent of eucalyptus.  The tang of moisture in the air.  The cool breezes of NE winds against your cheek.  A morning temp of 49F and clearing skies to greet us.  Gearing up for warm weather and a new dose of real deal NW swell.  Both are on the agenda but likely not showing until tomorrow and into the weekend.  For now we have fading NW swell still offering up some rideable peaks just lacking in size and power.  Low tide has left us somewhat shallow but the turnaround is upon us and the incoming push may just tip the scales in your favor.  Noontime king tides are to be watched and handled with care.  Set you sights on the future and proceed forward with unyielding desire.


CHANNEL: Knee high grinders reel along the Channel and Groin sandbars.  Bottom contours are set and ready for whatever Mother Ocean delivers to our destination.  Now longboards are the call and E winds shredding the wave tops and holding up the micro faces.  Inside Mali-Bo rights are starting to work and will be worth a look as the tide continues to rise. 
 


PATCH:  Mellowed with time and decreasing swell yet still enough water and energy to declare itself surfable.  Knee to thigh high rights permeate the region and if the slow cruise is to your liking then you will be happily rewarded.

 We are closed every Wednesday for the month of January but we will re-open this Thursday at 10AM


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards." - Soren Kierkegaard  


An almost carbon copy of yesterday as a rolling fog disappears slowly over our piece of paradise, finding 47 degrees and mild breezes. Solid offerings on all sides of the boat ramp with moments of epic being spotted, as a baker's dozen wades in for adventure. In keeping with yesterday's circumstances, the incoming tide is already making for challenging access, with rip n' dip to follow in short order. As the waters begin to slowly recede, sliding should once again be for the taking. Make note that flood advisories are still in effect and are viable. Keep a sharp eye out and be vigilant friends.



CHANNEL: This is the place to make the most of this morning's offerings, as solid chest high and surprisingly speedy rollers are coming in solid sets. The rising tides will do no favors, so if you are not already in, another cup of coffee and a leisurely morning might be in order. This afternoon may provide better kindling for the fire.
 


PATCH: A more mellow ride and vibe permeates the soul patch this AM. As things are not holding shape particularly well, but slides are still being had. A waist-high right is being chatted with, and some are finding the conversation to their liking. Not to overstate, but the tide is coming and will rain on our proverbial parade, but wait a few movements of the clock and see what you will.
