Daily Surf Report - 12/20/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Desire nothing, give up all desires and be happy." - Swami Sivananda


No rain.  No wind.  Big NW swell ready to go.  Currently too much water to really make an impression but if the winds stay light the lower tides could really show off later today.  There will be strong currents and lots of water moving around - know your limits!  Current temp is 54F and clearing skies are probable today.  Tide still peaking with lots of boat ramp dumpers delivering water up to the street.  Mind your dry feet as most observers are getting a bit wet.  Positivity and potential rule the day but timing will ultimately prevail.  Lots of ins and outs and what-have-yous associated with today's conditions.  Complex. 



CHANNEL:  Smoothing out as winds die off.  Thick rollers coming through but being hampered by the extreme high tide.  Straight off and outside the Groin pole is where the pack sits.  Might be worth a sneak inside to check Mali-Bo as it likes the incoming tide and runs into shallow water which will cause waves to break.  Size probability is waist to chest if a real wave gets ridden but for now lots of bobbing and weaving in the soup trying to find a happy spot. 
 
 

PATCH:  Not generating much activity here yet with the higher tides and NW swell direction.  The getting there will be half the fun and wall waves are breaking up and onto the stairs.  Enjoy the solitude and if you score waves they will be yours to relish.

Daily Surf Report - 12/19/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions." - Dalai Lama


Torrential downpour assaulting our coastal hamlet this morning with great vengeance and furious anger.  Significant moisture falling and again flooding roadways with mud, water and vegetation.  Take it slow and take it easy today.  Make time to take time and you will get there in 1 piece.  Also on tap are S winds and if you have any knowledge of positive surf conditions they are currently not present.  Find another activity today to quench your watery thirst and wait for waves to hopefully soon return.  Expect the shop to have limited business hours today.   



CHANNEL:  Wind whipped and white-capped.  Victory at sea conditions.  In a nutshell - NO. 
 
 

PATCH:  White-capped and wind whipped.  In a single word - NO.

Daily Surf Report - 12/18/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf." - Rabindranath Tagore


Time stands still as we have another morning of misty hills and clearing skies.  No rain today and sunny conditions are expected.  Tide has peaked and is delivering kelpy ramp swampers while the wind is moderately South.  Not an epic combo of conditions at this point in the morning.  2 determined surfers in the water and 2 suiting up in the lot.  Still have the NW swell in play so get what's there to be got before it goes away.  



CHANNEL:  An emerging wave has been noted in the Channel.  Supreme high tide not deterring the efforts to break and roll towards shore before being swallowed by the deepest depths.  The drop can be made and the size is waist high.  The length of the ride is short but the tide has started to turn and head out and this will help clean things up for the better.  Time your entrance and exit wisely and there are concrete distractions along the way.  Find a few waves now and more later - if the wind stays light. 
 
 

PATCH:  Too much tide and not a proper swell direction has derailed the Patch again.   Little positive to say about the area other than it exists under much brown water and does not look like a surf spot today.

Daily Surf Report - 12/17/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction." - William Blake


Another misty morning near the sea as temps hover around 52 and the forecast is not one of promise. Currently 10-15MPH winds are playing hopscotch with the boat ramp, and access is limited by spray and agony. Only one soul climbing languidly from the churning this morning, wearing an expression of grim determination. 



CHANNEL:  The water spins and coughs in the channel this morning, but inconsistency in the only constant. Sliding could be had only by an expert's eye and a sadist's patience. The afternoon shows some promise as the tide recedes, but the coming rain and onshore winds may have other designs.
 
 

PATCH:  Again, a sandy, brownish, gumbo is all the might await you this morning, as conditions are rather grim. Although we would all like to have a wonderful day of sliding about, today is not that day my friends...

Daily Surf Report- 12/16/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"It's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea." - Leonard Cohen


A rare turning sunshine falls upon our village this morning, but it is not due to last my friends. Currently 53 degrees with moderate cross winds, due to turn to rain and 20MPH onshore in the coming hours. Ebb tides are currently making access a dicey proposition, and once in the water, not much to be had I'm afraid.



CHANNEL:  Minimal activity past the groin marker this morning, like a Philip Glass symphony, hypnotic, but not made for dancing. Mid- thigh at it's highest and wind-blown at it's strongest.
 
 

PATCH:  Not a soul braving the elements this morning, as the breakers roll in alone, solitary and unwelcoming. Cross winds are creating a choppy festival of waist-high slop, filled with sand and not much else. I truly hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but in the words of the master "Try Wait"...

Daily Surf Report - 12/15/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are." - Soren Kierkegaard


It is indeed time to face facts and with a chilly 52 degrees, a steady and persistent rain, and cross winds upwards of 20 MPH, those facts to not paint a pretty picture if wave sliding was on the agenda for today. Mid-level tides creating a silty stew of the boat ramp, with entrance and exit proving difficult this morning. Not even the strongest of the strange are attempting a session under these conditions....


CHANNEL:  Where so many of us seek peace, this morning finds only choppy chaos. As the tides recede, things don't look to improve. Waist-to-chest high on occasion, but largely inaccessible. 
 
 

PATCH:  Slightly better situation in the patch this morning, but again, access in the primary concern. Some sliding may be had later this afternoon, but the zephyrs would have to calm considerably. Finish baking the holiday cookies and cakes my friends, as today is without much promise.

Daily Surf Report - 12/14/2014




Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"It's my birthday."- Maurace Zetino


Very sunny and bright this morning and a very cool temp at 51F.  Lots of water on the way out, making for a semi-foggy drive out. Tide is dropping but still lots of water on the beach. Gorgeous and clear skies with just a touch of wind blowing through. Already a crowd gathering in the Channel and still a few people out in the Patch. Why not hop in?


CHANNEL:  Long lines coming through the Channel at decent speeds. Waist high range but not super clean. Looks fun for everyone, as the waves are getting some good use. Jump in and join the growing crowd.
 
 

PATCH:  Not as good as yesterday, a few thigh high rollers coming in with the current out going tide. Looking fun but a little sloppy. Lots of water still but emptying out a little soon. Not much beach to work with out there but plenty of water.
