Daily Surf Report - 3/30/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Time held me green and dying, though I sang in my chains like the sea." - Dylan Thomas



A heady mix of fine mist, streaked sunlight, and a resilient NW swell are to be found upon investigation this morning. A chilly 48 degrees, but with a rising mercury. Parking areas are closing in on capacity, as a small platoon are getting it in before the wind, which is already on it's way and will be a major ingredient in the stew as the hours pass.




CHANNEL:  As we come upon the morning high tide, there is much revelry and rejoicing as conditions are proving enjoyable to the seasoned eye. Though not as consistent as it can be, now is the time to ride, as solid chest high rollers with an enviable shape are being ridden for yards, not feet. Access is rapidly becoming challenging, but worth a little rock to get up on the roll. Get in now if you can, and take a small crowd as the price of admission, as Gaia will not continue to emit such glory as the afternoon progresses. 


 PATCH:   A surprisingly thin line-up upon early observation, until one takes into account that the rising zephyrs are already beginning to effect the outside of our dear patch. Not showing the beauty she possessed this weekend, there are nonetheless many prizes on the table. Though signs of inconsistency are cracking through the thin veneer of perfection, clearly the wind will play havoc in the coming hours. Know when to strike my friends, for the hour is here.

Daily Surf Report - 3/29/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." -Bob Marley



The swell is in! Sun is out and so are the waves. Current temp is 52F and growing. Pack all of your beach goodies because you'll be here all day. Our beautiful little beach is packed with smiling faces in and out of the water. Parking is already nil with no visible spots open but plenty of opportunity to get creative. You won't need your crystal to get lucky today but bring it along anyway for full potential.




CHANNEL:  Swells colliding making it difficult to cope with. Not much here as of now, but can be rideable with a log. Knee high but too soft. Water needs to drop and clear out a bit. Should shape up as the day does and grow from the seed of high hopes.


 PATCH:   Right out front the boat ramp pumping this morning with waist-chest high rollers coming in with some nice lefts. Crowded here but its worth the fight to catch one. Patch is working as well about the same. Long rides available here for the price of bumping elbows. Work for your waves and respect the ones who catch it first. SW swell working well for us today. Like yesterday will be heavily populated throughout the day.

Daily Surf Report - 3/28/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"I accept that there may be things far grander and more incomprehensible than we can possibly imagine." - Richard Dawkins


Now sun / no wind / 52F and a grandiose day begins.  All the ingredients are in place for an EPIC beach adventure. Earlier headlamps beamed while the star-lite collective dodged bats and spiders to reap early rewards and set the tone for the morning.  New long period SW swell continues to fill and hold steady today.  Still a touch of NW in the water as well to keep things honest and working in both spots.  Frothing surfers are multiplying exponentially like bacteria as parking dwindles and lineups swell in size.  Peaking tide gives lots of water to move around and beach access remains at all locations.  Let the pull of the ocean guide you today and be your mentor in all aquatic activities.  



CHANNEL:  The combo swells are working yet not aligned for perfection.  Still a decent amount of surf in the waist high size to push limits and set new goals.  Mainly lefts off the Groin bar and over towards the boat ramp show the most shape and promise.  Sectioned here and there but still a thick lineup of mixed water craft from SUPs to fish and everything in between.  Seadrift rights showing some spray and blowback causing an exploration posse to seek the goods across the Channel.  Plenty for everyone and some extra as well.


PATCH:   Smooth and consistent even in the dark.  High water levels has everyone spread out and all boulders beneath.  Size grows towards chest + with waist high or better being the norm rather than the exception today.  Pulsing with peaks and high probability of multiple long rides.  Outside past the meeting rock has a crew of loggers waiting for the sets to arrive.  Lefts and rights off this wave have nice drops but also a flat spot that causes rapid speed loss.  Midway is where the hot-curl action is with pitching rollers that hold form, shape and speed as they blaze along to the shore.   Easy to get your fill and a bunch more as well.  The lineup is thick as thieves and expected to become enhanced throughout the day.

Daily Surf Report - 3/27/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Everything you can imagine is real." - Pablo Picasso


A grey mist and associated fog hangs overhead this morning.  Tamping down the wind and keeping ocean surfaces glassy and welcoming.  No sun at this time but likely will make an appearance.  Temp is pleasant at 53F and all signs point positively for a day of surf. NW windswell lingers while the SW swell grows and travels up the coast.  Pulsing and peaking with the early morning high tide.  The vampire crew scores and dawn patrollers as well.  Use your third eye to see things more clearly and wipe away all negativity from your surroundings today.  



CHANNEL:  Water levels are perfect and the combo swells are breaking off surf in the thigh to waist high size with mostly Groin bar lefts and the occasional Channel right.  The mid-length and shortboard sect is on it early but energy mostly lacking for smaller boards so far.  Longboards will succeed where others fail and rides to the sand are within grasp.  



PATCH:   Seething swell as the new SW begins to pop off peaks on the outside.  Size has growing potential and was measured on the PMouse scale at chest high with consistency at waist +.  Glassy ocean and all the components for a surf day are in play now.  A notable absence of hand held paddles leaves the lineup logger dominated and spread out.  Midway peaks reel off through the Snags and fly towards the shore.  Stylistic surfing has been observed through the mist and open faces with connections are the norm.

Daily Surf Report - 3/26/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:   
"Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy." -Saadi



A welcoming sun beams down upon the village and bathes it in a warm and healing glow.  The positivity is thick and pervasive this morning and not a soul encountered wears a frown today.  Temp breaks in at 52F and no wind is to be felt or witnessed.  Water borne activities are on the agenda as pulses produce some popping peaks.  NW windswell remains - though fading and a new SW groundswell begins its journey up the coast.  See things through a different light today.  Modify perspective and hold your truth close to your heart.  




CHANNEL:  Tide heading low and taking the waves with it as size stays steady but only knee high.  Pesky lefts off the Groin bar and rideable waves out in front of the boat ramp have longboards bouncing and reeling shoreward on the micro-peelers.  Now the getting is get-able but soon there won't be enough water to slide upon.  Evening does hold much promise as the new SW swell fills in. 



PATCH:   Here the new SW swell is beginning to show as water levels drain and surfers battle time and Mother Nature to catch rides before the rocks take over.  This battle will soon be won by lack of water and exposed bottom.  It is loggable and on for now and a pool party of a baker's dozen are enjoying the day at it's finest. Size runs up to thigh high with right facing slide pieces.

Daily Surf Report - 3/25/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day: 
"When we are not sure, we are alive." - Graham Greene



 Though a dense fog holds over much of the surrounding area, those in our village have reason to rejoice as a beaming and glorious sun shines down. A bit of brisk wind still finds it's way from the sea, and temps are on the rise. Current conditions are functional, but there is a sense of optimism and joy upon the faces of those attempting slides this morning, as once past the mid-morning low, the day has the makings of a solid spring afternoon to pursue one's favorite water activities.


CHANNEL:  As had been the case the last several mornings, lack of volume is this main issue here, although more shape than other days have provided. As the gusts die down and the water adds to the far outside, expect the WNW swell the fill in for slide-able shapes to emerge.


PATCH:  Exposed rocks and exposed paddles are in the mix this morning, with more bodies headed into the fray. Much like the channel, volume is needed to make for more action, but it should be on today's agenda. Align your chakras and cleanse the Ajna, as the third eye will be your guide for slides and rides...

Daily Surf Report - 3/24/2015


Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:  "You begin with the possibilities of the material."-Robert Rauschenberg


 A fine mist falls steadily, covering the village in moisture and wisps of fog as we find the temps hovering around the 55 degree mark. It's the kind of morning that brings an unsettled vibe and the anticipation of Log Lady sightings. Yards of yards of beach are visible in all directions and the rocks and stones are making themselves known. Only three of the most disciplined are in the depths this morning, but it appears they are practicing a quiet meditation, as no sliding is observed. Remember, the owls are not what they seem.



CHANNEL:     Far too little water mixed with gusting winds is making this a desolate and forlorn part of the shoreline this morning, as even the far outside has little to no activity. There is a window of opportunity as the tide pushes in, so conditions should improve, but temper your expectations with a heavy dash of realism...


PATCH:   Similar conditions with more reason for optimism as we gaze into the windswept waters of the patch. A watchful eye will be as mandatory as a wetsuit on a morning as this. Rocks and inconsistency are your enemies. As stated previously, there should be room for improvement as the day continues, so read the charts and be mindful of your surroundings.
