Daily Surf Report - 6/30/2016



Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"
I never think of the future - it comes soon enough." - Albert Einstein

 

Thick fog and swirling mists as many gaze Westward into uncertain futures.  Furious scrubbing and much haphazard rubbing of wax upon planks in the wee hours of the emerging morn.  A multitude of factors conspire to confound and confuse while also configuring some stoke for the day.  A day of chilled temps and cherished moments as one door closes while others open.  NW and SW swells combine forces though sideways winds do wreak some disorder.  Incoming tide has water levels set for play and the masses and multitudes descend.  Find your alignment level and do let your conscience be your guide. 



CHANNEL: Incoming tide and NW energy has sliders and riders on high alert as a narcotic landscape comes in and out of focus.  Patches of light reveal lefts of merit if what is seen can be believed.  Mysteries morph into reality or do they?
                  


PATCH:
A lost head count as numbers duplicate and multiply in less than ideal illumination.  Substitution patterns keep fresh bodies coming in waves and seeking the same.  There is plenty for the taking and more if you ask nicely.  Captain my captain, I'll follow you anywhere.

Daily Surf Report - 6/29/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"You are only as young as the last time you changed your mind." - Timothy Leary

 

Gentle winds blow among notions and sundries as a mix of fog and sun dance upon rolling breakers in the hours of the long morning. Chakras align, as breath is taken in, and maligned as it exits at the axis. A bit of an unwelcome chill hangs on by its nails, and the promise of summer seems like a fabrication. Line-ups in sizes of fair-to-midland are the new normal, and today is no exception. To tell the truth, this could be the last time, so here we go, like a sales force into the night....




CHANNEL: Higher tides prevent all slides as only lure and hook find footing on rippling peelers in the mist strewn light. One could stare into hypnotic seas until the mere idea of eternity seems comical. In a seashell, you thought you heard human voices, but they were only echoes...
                  


PATCH:
The 25-man active roster is in uniform and has taken the field. Paddle in hand they row, row, row their boats. Waist high and bone dry as loggers cross and weave through the air  we breathe. As tidal situations ebb and flow there will be highs and lows, but these only reflect the two sides of the mirror. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one...

Daily Surf Report - 6/28/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal." - Arthur Schoepenhauer

 

As an un-tethered sun shines down upon a village still, the temps have already begun to climb. Summer is here and the time is right for dancing in the streets. Salty dogs upon barnacle-encrusted logs seek justice and fulfillment in these early hours. Local legends and those that revere them dance on sand strewn concrete and assess potential for undress and redress. Look left, look right, as both views offer line-ups to spare. Shapes of lore have long since passed, but with the right kind of eyes, you could find stoke. It's all over but the shouting....



CHANNEL: If one has time, and seeks the beauty of motion and action, one might find satisfaction. Slight rights meander and weave over uncertain futures and fishing line. It must just be the colors, and the kids, that keep me alive, because the music is boring me to death.
                  


PATCH:
A virtual squadron and a moveable feast seeks slow slides and log rides. Patches and packs seek rights that move at a snail's pace. The odd set shows promise, but promises can be broken, and hearts dashed upon craggy reefs. I don't see any method at all, sir.....

Daily Surf Report - 6/27/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Things do not change; we change." - Henry David Thoreau

 

We offer sun salutations as we ponder morning ruminations on our own ruination. Sunny skies promise summer heat and the pounding of booted feet atop hot asphalt. Already there are bodies here and there as suits are yanked and fin keys cranked. The seas offer hardly the stuff of legend, but that will likely matter little to the charge of the light brigade. Slide and deride will be the name of the literal and figurative game as day unfolds. Once more into the breech!


CHANNEL: Mid-tide vectors show a hint of promise, but with the waters still in retreat, that promise will exist past the luncheon hour, as we find ourselves haunted as the minutes drag.  Expect the thrashing of youthful exuberance and many a boogie in the rollers and ankle scrapers.
                  


PATCH:
 The battalion fights the good fight among the chilly breakers already in the early light. Rides of merit and consequence are being had, though one should temper one's expectations, as logs and log-ins are required, and it appears some have forgotten their passwords. Far outside a queue forms, as tickets are punched and some have packed a lunch, and anticipate the heavy stuff won't come down for quite a while....

"The mind is everything. What you think you become." - Buddha

Daily Surf Report - 6/24/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day: 
"Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe." - Voltaire 


Heady holding steady as a renewed dose of S swell feeds the masses and combos up with adequate NW windswell.  What winds do blow are directed offshore and are as likely to cause ripples as they are to skillfully groom. Parking remains at capacity while tide reaches a most minimal level and then goes below.  The journey is worth the effort and the dividends will put smiles upon sun baked faces.


CHANNEL: Lefts that drain and dredge upon open sandbars as a shifting of currents yields unexpected results.  No water is no problem until you hit bottom which comes fast and frequently upon negative tides.  A few risk takers and fist shakers brave the shallows in hopes of finding just one magic moment of temporary tubular time.


                 
PATCH:
Again we find the S swell finding purchase and placement upon these reefy waters.  Low water levels means a rather lengthy paddle past rocky outcroppings to reach those that congress to slide the morning away.
Ninety miles an hour, slidin' on grease. I got my doubts we'll make it in one piece. Just takin a ride. We're takin a ride.
