Daily Surf Report - 2/28/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Start every day off with a smile and get it over with." - WC Fields


Magnificent day in many respects with chill air coming in at 47F.  Clear skies and sunshine above and minor puffs of wind not adversely effecting the vibe.  Birds do chirp a hopeful song and if expectations are kept extremely low they may be met or exceeded today.  Still battling the factor of not much ocean swell with NW windswell and an emerging S swell attempting to procreate and display wave offspring.   Deep high tide just recently peaked keeping it slow but accessible right now.  Use the third eye to see beyond reality and follow it to the waves of satisfaction.



CHANNEL:  A few rolly-polly lumps coming in with intentions of breaking with right hand slides.  Most continue to flow towards shore unbroken and those that bend and fold reveal knee high waves with less than lengthy sophistication.  The ocean is glistening and beautifully glassy just lacking the wherewithal to generate much in terms of rideable surf.  There are heads bobbing around the water and furious paddling attempts have yielding short but sweet endings. 


PATCH:   Shin burners and hair curlers as the Patch shows wide open expanses of unruffled ocean surface.  The semi-occasional right has been observed with heights best measured in inches rather than feet.  No takers at this time but lots of lookers on the wall plotting and planning on the perfect strike.  Let nature be your guide to outdoor endeavors with watery pursuits possibly later in the day.

Daily Surf Report - 2/27/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power." - William James


Serenity Now as we experience utter peace and tranquility this morning.  A good day to be contemplative or sit on the sea wall and gaze to the far horizons.  Mind meld the conditions and imagine the wonderful possibilities of being a 6" tall human.  Temp slinks in at 54F with some underlying NW winds.  Overcast and unsettled times are upon us today.  Just NW windswell and very little of that.  Maybe a small hint of a background S swell on the buoys but next to nothing showing wave wise and nearly un-surfable at this time.   




CHANNEL:  Lake-like conditions with just 2 stand tall paddlers surveying the surface.  Currently best for touring and exploring but no waves to ride are evident.  Inside shore break mini tubes are worth watching but likely not surfing.  Out front at the Boat Ramp yields the only glimmer of hope, soon to be invaded by hordes of teens attempting to ride their first wave and throw shakas.  Let this be your morning visual and wait for better conditions in the future.   


PATCH:   No rulers to take accurate measurements but keen estimation reveals occasional ankle high waves in the middle Patch.  We'll call it jankle as our term of endearment.  Longing looks and hopeful prayers may summon a vision of hope but likely not going to respond to our desires today.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Knowledge will give you power, but character gives respect." - Bruce Lee


Sweet and serene morning with spectacular sunshine upon us.  Temp in at 52F with currently no wind but predicted to change later.  Only a moderate NW windswell in play to deliver waves but there is just enough to entice and the day is stunning in many respects.  Early morning tide peak is on the way out leaving lots of beach access and rapidly diminishing water levels.  Strike while the iron is hot and hit in now or forever hold your peace when you arrive late.


CHANNEL:  Hide and seek lefts intermittently appearing off the Groin bar and seeking riders and solace in the shallows.  Weak and small with size ranging nearly up to thigh high but there is something worth logging if you dare.  Boat ramp waves directly out front still making an effort for supremacy and 2 shortboard wonder-stars are trying their luck upon waist high wave dumps. 



PATCH:   Knee high and clean with an earlier logger maximizing the potential.  Bobs and weaves, tip to the nose and solitary cruises heading right show this wave to be small but worthy or riding.  Water levels still remain positive with just a few rock tips starting to emerge.  Follow the early lead and ride this wave.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"A somebody was once a nobody who wanted to and did." - John Burroughs


A slight chill hangs in the morning air as we find 43 degrees currently with stunningly clear skies and only a mellow zephyr blowing. As we gaze out towards the ocean, a large swath of beach is visible and access is prime, but very low water levels are making for only minimal rollers as of now. As the tide comes in, there may be a window of opportunity, so consult your favorite oracle, align your chi, and look towards the luncheon hour... 


CHANNEL:  Ankle biters and no sliders as we look left from the ramp. The current water level has the groin pole on a sandy beach, and little more is evident as of now. More water and power is what we seek...



PATCH:   Lonely knee high shapes rolling slowly towards exposed rock currently. Ye olde patch should provide more favorable sights to be seen later in the day, but not as of yet. Keep a watchful eye on the tides and clock, and fortify yourself this morning with strong tea and positivity...

Daily Surf Report - 2/23/2015



Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:

"The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things." - Maria Rilke


Brisk winds blow through the quiet streets and are greeted by 50 degrees and clear skies this fine morning. Those same breezes, however, are mixing with very low water levels to make for less than ideal conditions. Watch the tides with a full soul and open heart, as more volume may provide shapes for sliding, but the wind continues to be the largest variable. It is another day of beauty here, but perhaps not one made for slides and rides.




CHANNEL:  Wind strewn whitewater and chop with little volume pushing in as there are many yards of sand visible this morning. The gulls and pelicans are the only forms observed taking rides. Look for higher waters to bring some shape, but alas, nothing of size is projected.


PATCH:   A half dozen souls, mostly those with paddles in hand, are seen this AM, but even they are finding rides few and far between, as they dance between the crags and exposed rocks. They few rollers seen to have a solid shape to them, but there is little power to push towards the shore. A solid eye may find slides here later in the day, so be vigilant.

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Don't gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold." - Bob Marley


Chilly and crisp starting the morning today. 50F and crystal clear skies. The day is looking to warm up nicely for a perfect beach day. Strange tide at work right now, the only rideable surf coming from right out front the boat ramp. About knee to maybe waist high and changing with the incoming tide. Good day to bring a log but if you do not have one the sea has provided plenty of drift wood to ride instead. Looks like an over all lovely day for the beach.  Set your sights on the farthest horizon and follow all your dreams today.



CHANNEL:  Not enough water in the channel right now to do much, White water crumbling in around the groin pole. Should shape up later in the day with some easy riders but as of now there is no sign of life.


PATCH:  Not so much here either, rocks peeking and feeling lonely. Only action in the water is right out front. Will likely spread across to the patch later when the water fills in after the high tide.
