Daily Surf Report - 7/30/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” - Sir Paul McCartney


This PSA brought to you today by The Ocean:
Please do not take all the beach sand on your wetsuits, booties and surfboards.  The shop does not want it.  The storm drains do not want it.  The streets do not want it, but the ocean does.  Thank you for your cooperation.


The world is calm and serene this morning as once again the fog sits low and extends as far as the eye can see. Temperatures are at 59F and bound to stay there through the morning until the fog burns off later in the afternoon. The wind is nonexistent thanks to the fog and the swell has picked up slightly. Regardless of the low tide, there are a few knee high peaks coming through. Expect that to pick up later in the day as the tide fills in as well. Overall it should shape up to be a nice day with fun surf that is perfect for beginners.   


CHANNEL: Glassy this morning as some knee high lefts are breaking in the middle groin. Nine dawn patrolers are out trying their luck at these little gliders. With the incoming tide through the afternoon, the waves should pick up and get better.     


PATCH:  Small waves are once again rolling and rolling all the way to the shore and have the potential to be some fun knee high waves... if they ever broke. Wait for the tide to see any improvement.

It's another overcast morning as the clouds are sitting low and pockets of fog are scattered throughout the area. Yet it is still a beautiful morning as the ocean is clear and glassy and all manor of wildlife are out and about doing their thing. Air temps are at 60F and the wind is nonexistent as we kick off the day. Today would be a wonderful day for a hike as the sun will hopefully break through later today as it did yesterday in the afternoon. Why a hike you ask? Well there is little to no swell still and the wind will most likely pick up later today as it did yesterday. But that isn't to say there is no fun to be had, so come out and spend some time in the sand and relax. 
   

CHANNEL:  Glassy this morning as little ankle biters break on the exposed sand bars. Middle groin and seadrift will be the better peaks later today. No one is out and nothing very rideable is available as of now. The tide will have to come in before I suggest going out.  

 
PATCH:  Little waves in the knee high range are rolling and rolling and rolling in some more, but never quite breaking until they reach the dry and exposed rocks and the shore. No one is out here, but it is possible that these knee high sliders will be rideable later today with the incoming tide.

The fog is dense and laying low over these empty streets this morning as it appears as if another monsoon may roll through sometime this week. Air Temps are at 56F and will likely stay around there today if this fog decides to stay. As for the surf, it is looking just as poor as this weather. Though it is glassy with only the faintest of breezes, there is zero swell. Granted the tide is extremely low and not helping with the production of waves. Once the tide comes in later today, there may be some improvement. Though don't expect anything very much bigger than a micro ankle slider.


 
CHANNEL:   Fairly glassy as the sandbars are exposed and the pelicans and seagulls reign over their little channel islands. Nothing much is breaking here except for some whitewater shorebreak that is crashing down onto the dry bars. With a tide shift, some actual waves may form later today. The key for today would be to wait. 


PATCH: Completely flat with all the rocks exposed. Not even the birds dawn this spot this morning. Maybe with the tide it will improve, though with very little swell in the water, don't expect too much. Maybe just have fun playing in the sand or exploring the cliff side today

Another beautiful morning here in Bolinas as the fog is light and already starting to burn off and the temps are nice and cool at 61F. Expect it to heat up and for the sun to shine as the day gets underway. Perfect day to bring the family and play on the beach and escape the unbearable inland heat. As for the surf, it is small and inconsistent as there is very little swell in the water. Tide is extremely low right now which isn't helping, but expect for some slightly better surf later today with a higher tide. That being said, it is the perfect day for all you beginners out there are is it is mellow and rideable. Come out and see what's in store for all you weekend warriors.



CHANNEL:  Slight texture reminiscent of last evenings breeze this morning. Tide is low and the bars are exposed, yet some small knee high peelers are standing up and rolling through in the middle and over to the seadrift side. Tide is incoming till later this afternoon and should improve the wave conditions and size. Not a soul in sight.... yet.


PATCH: Tiny waves in the ankle range are breaking on the inside where it is extremely shallow and riddled with scattered rocks. But there are a few logs out catching some non-breaking waves that are just steep enough to get them moving just next to the meeting rock. More water is needed here before those waves really start to break. Might be a good morning to explore the tide pools within the rocks.

Sunny, beautiful and expected hot temps.  Great day for the shovel and pail crew to hit the beach and build some castles.  Temp in at 60F and just a few light breaths of winds for texture purposes.  Mind surfing is supreme today as swell remains small to non-existent.  Just windswell and low tide this morning.  Afternoon and evening fuller tides have had a bit more to ride but still in the micro-slider realm of possibilities.  Chill at the beach for the day and expect the UN-expected today. 


CHANNEL:   Calf to knee high reelers and dealers this morning as the swell remains weak and the water is low.  Incoming tide will give a little bit more push.  Choppy now with a touch of wind and tide pushing back.  Evening glass off may be worth a look.   A few weekend warriors on it but not EPIC conditions. 


PATCH:  Pelicans have gone but rocks remain evident.  Still nearly flat with occasional blips of S swell activity but very infrequently.  Great day for paddling or swimming but not so much for surfing right now.  More water may equal more fun.

Chill and chipper morning with the high pressure system settling in for the weekend.  Sunny skies and no wind.  Air temp checking in at 57F with mid 80s expected.  A day of endless possibilities so rise to the occasion and seek levels above 1.  Find the true purpose within yourself and let the world know.  Just NW windswell today as the S swell dies off.  Also, early morning low tide filling in and starting to get things covered up.  All vampire sea creatures seeking refuge under the watery blankets now.  Small surf and not much of it but the day is beautiful and long and you never know what surprises may be in store later.


CHANNEL:   Knee high grinders and shin burners galore this morning as the swell is weak and the water is low.  Incoming tide will give a little bit more push.  The windswell is actually up a bit so more water could turn it on a touch more.  For now, super small and no takers but some lookers.  Longboards will work later but wave size is debatable. Another great beginner surf day.  Don't forget the sunscreen.


PATCH:  Rocks and pelican morning but still no surfable waves.  Needs more water and the afternoon will have it.  Now flat.  Later ankle high + peelers.  Swimmers, kayaks and touring SUPs own it today.

Daily Surf Report - 7/24/2014



Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.” - Harriet Tubman



Heavy with humidity but no rain.  Weatherman says high pressure and hot temps are coming.  Currently 61F and calm with glassy ocean surfaces.  NW windswell has picked up a bit and S swell has dropped so that is translating into Channel surf only this morning.  Early morning low tides are starting to fill in and push back and water levels are positive for most all the rest of the day.  There is small longboardable surf in town today and if you come with a smile on your face you will leave with one as well. 


CHANNEL:   Taking a liking to the NW windswell and pop up peaks in the thigh high + size abound.  Rights and lefts and scattered mostly in the Channel proper with a few swinger waves hitting the Groin bar.  Seadrift feeling good as well with a bit smaller size but good shape and fun rides.  About 8 in the water and 2 van loads just pulling up loaded with foamie boards.  A great day for beginners and amateurs of all shapes and sizes.


PATCH:  Pelican a Plenty and not much else.  Flat and smooth and not surf conducive right now.  Some rocks showing but incoming tide will soon cover.  Needs S swell which we don't currently have.  Empty.
