Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier’s tomb, and beauty weeps the brave." - Joseph Rodman Drake

 

Cool winds are being escorted from the ocean waves. Some of the brave dare to surf what was once but now does not exist. Hang in there for there will be more. Get in the water, taste that ocean floor. Bop up and down feel the ocean roar or wash up on the shore.


CHANNEL:
Was once but nevermore.

Daily Surf Report - 5/28/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in the woods, and the sound of the ocean on a beach." - Henry Beston

 

Congested like old arteries with all manner of recreational vehicle and toy as the holiday weekend is upon us.  Gilded with golden light from above and blessed with no current winds the wide expanses of beach may soon be valuable, occupied territory. With a draining tide and nary a meager NW windswell clinging the options are limitless and scarce all at the same time. 


CHANNEL: Bumblers, crumblers and stumblers as we battle against forces far beyond our control. A ripped and wonky surface has left an abandoned Channel while the committed and omitted have wandered over to Seadrift for attempts at slides.  Regressing rights are the option one finds with size relegated to the patella region and longboards required for entry.   



PATCH: A whispered promise of a steep S swell shows no signs of arrival and no water level reveals only spiny rocks exposed and lonely.  No activity brewing save for the 6 fishermen divining dinner from shore-bound casts like in halcyon days of old.  Find not sorrow or bitterness as good days soon come.

Daily Surf Report - 5/27/2016

 
Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Everyone needs a fantasy." - Andy Warhol

 

An early sun crests misty mountaintops to shed light on a harsh reality.  Empty racks and Scooby snacks might lend credence to watery activities but tide and swell are currently conspiring against such play.  Temps have dropped along with spirits as those premature holiday arrivals seek that which is not in the offering.  Only a lackluster NW windswell remains to generate the propulsive means upon shallow waters and this my friends leaves little to the imagination.  Yet the day does retain many beautiful aspects and has the capacity for greatness.


CHANNEL: See the lone pelican bob and weave as he hunts a morning meal.  He is gangly yet graceful as he surveys the sea and swoops along.  See the two sliders attempting rides upon wind-generated rights with a tidal rip running through.  Not nearly as appealing as the aforementioned bird. 



PATCH:

The null experience
Piece it together
It showers you with oceans of the past
And there's no time to breathe

Daily Surf Report - 5/26/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees." - Hal Borland


Imported light winds as a construct of the morning and someone pulled the plug in the tub and let all the water drain out. Empty rectangular bags of all manner and dripping neoprene costumes denote an activity underway or recently completed. Though a moderate NW windswell resides no remnant of any S can be discerned. Many regard the sea without much curiosity and make their harried way into the breech. Temps are moderate at 54F without the benefit of any sun as it remains permanently cloaked in cloud. If all you ever wanted was the truth then today you will find it.



CHANNEL: Here harbors the misguided masses as they cavort in a sub-sea level playground.   No water / No problem as the angular configuration pushes rights headlong across bars in a direction rarely seen. Mainly waves that are best suited for log proners as witnessed in real time.  Fun is where you find it and today is resides here?



PATCH: T
he road to rejection is better than no road at all.

Daily Surf Report - 5/25/2016



Inspirational Quote of the Day: "We need, in love, to practice only this: letting each other go." - Rainer Maria Rilke



A fine mist clings windshields and mylar bags as they sit atop vehicles as a fog of merit hangs low, adding an air of the ominous to the proceedings. Though the sun may make itself known, that will only be after day has grown, and perhaps  not even then. A head count larger than the powers of observation would justify stares into a silent sea, as the proverbial pin drops. Nary a one of these souls could be found among the chilly waters, and with  good reason. Look towards the future, and study the charts, as only love can break your heart.



CHANNEL: A solitary angler  is seemingly being coached on technique by Shoeless Joe, and the limousines wait in the street.




PATCH: Though a handful sit and stare at what's not there, the most resigned among the  observers know that today screams less than zero over humid zephyrs.

Daily Surf Report - 5/24/2016



Inspirational Quote of the Day: "It is truth that liberates, not your efforts to be free." -  Jiddu Krishnamurti



Heady grays as we gaze through early morning haze as the mercury stands watch at 56 degrees. No bare feet scuffle on sandy blacktop at present, as the aquatic offerings leave much to be desired. Low tides provide no rides, as even the anglers and dog wranglers are seeking another half hour of shut-eye. The kind of silence sought by monks and new parents stretches over exposed beach and dances over rocks of designation.



CHANNEL: Stare into the void, and know it offers only a crushing nothing.



PATCH: Though this space may be the place as hours pass and waters rise, a meager S seeks desperate purchase  upon moody sandbars and plays through today, as we look back in anger.
