Daily Surf Report - 8/27/2016

 
Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
" - Lao Tzu

 
Early morning revelations sing praises to Jah as NW windswell holds and SW swell fills in and stakes a claim.  Tides pushes forth and gives a wide landscape upon which to view and verify.  Pick up trucks with fins stuck up saturate all available parking spaces as light begins the full reveal.  Temp is 61F, winds remain slack and high fog dusts the mountain tops.  


CHA
NNELThe incoming tide flows over solidified sandbars and the results are groomed if not significant in stature.  Lefts for logs with connection sections have weekend worshipers willingly putting on wetsuits.  Now is the time as it will be a bit high tide-ish soon.  The swings are moderate and alternative options will become more or less present during the day. 



PATCH:
Do you ever yearn?

You got anything on the horizon?
Do you have any action at all?
Do you have any conceivable reason for even getting up in the morning?
Well today may be your day.

Daily Surf Report - 8/26/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The only source of knowledge is experience.
" - Albert Einstein

 
Very little activity on the radar and translation into waves is hazy at best.  The stoke meter flickers at the hope of new swell but long range forecasts don't help the surfer of today.  A gust from the S winds has textured all surfaces keeping them shifting though relatively flat.  A nudge from the incoming tide may lend the helping hand needed to tip the scales forward and cause those in-situ to don suits and paddle out.  


CHA
NNELLess and less as NW swell retreats.  Less and less as S winds blow.  Less and less as high tide fills in and swamps.  Minor movements that currently have lost their allure.



PATCH:
Take my advice
Or you’re cursed today
Started rolling down
That lost highway

Daily Surf Report - 8/25/2016


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Never trust sheep.
" - Ryan Stiles

 
Another morning of true serenity briefly interrupted by the crash of trash can movement and dumpster emptying.  Fear not as you can disappear into the fog and emerge on the other side.  Moderate tides and meager swell offerings are on the menu board as Blue Plate Specials.  Keen eyes will capture moments in the mist and suiting up is an option for the restless ramblers.    


CHA
NNEL: As settled sandbars longingly await a fading NW swell we find ourselves marveling at what spins through unoccupied.  A perfect peeler of a minor stature is witnessed and unridden.  Perhaps a perfectly formed little left that leaves a smile on even the hardened faces.  With only residual energy emitted the opportunities are clearly presented.  


PATCH: Less and less as SW swell has faded into our unconscious.  Memories that may linger will be needed to tide one over until the next round rings out. For now a kayak dreamscape.

Daily Surf Report - 8/24/2016

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen." - John Steinbeck
 
Rest easy young bucks. With the low on the horizon, both of the usual are empty and un-bountiful. With a high sort of blanket on the distant hills, which slick the roads, must be a mood killer, although the three that show are the three that still enjoy the last of the summer bliss. Mild temperatures are masked with gray which can elude to the oncoming  


CHA
NNEL: Small and wonderous as one may say. A lone paddler enjoys the calm, although no one joins him in the lake-like waters. With nothing to play on in the wormy hours, there is always room for more later. 


PATCH: Try wait and see what is brought to the table. Sometimes the guests will not be served of what they wish, but who doesn't like dessert

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"
Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming." - David Bowie

 
With the lowering tides, the earlier birds already caught the worm. But not to worry, the worms always wiggle back. Slow, and small the few that paddle out are not rewarded this morning. With fog blanketing the coast and the surrounding areas, it makes for a nostalgic scene as temperatures become steady.


CHA
NNEL: Waiting games can be fun, am I right? Hanging around the ankle may be all thats dished out for now but with changing tides, only science knows what will become.


PATCH: The floaters are not treated but any excuse to get wet will do. Certain tides may bring pleasure as others or more may struggle.

Daily Surf Report - 8/22/2016

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"
Faith is taking the first step when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Jr.


The tide is low and keeping most away waiting for more water. Few ponder but none catch. The sun is on it's way out but traffic seems to stand still. Not too chilly this morning with a current temperature of 58F and likely to keep rising.


CHA
NNEL: Low tide has the channel empty, but with a few more minutes of paddling you can find yourself an ankle biter or knee chomper. Try Wait.


PATCH: A mile away paddlers stand alone waiting for time to pass.
