Spectacular morning here at the beach. The sun is out, the birds are singing in the key of John Coltrane and there is an ever-so-slight breath of air ruffling the surface of the water. The surf conditions are a bit less than spectacular but it is trying. Currently the Channel is the only resource operating at this moment and at a conservative level. The air temp is around 57 degrees. The water temp is around 54 degrees. It's all sunshine and per usual the day will heat up. Small waves continue to be the norm with wave size around thigh high. It's a glorious day for the beach so slather on the sun block, bring a big log or SUP and get to it.
Channel: Small with the middle bar waves in the thigh high size. With this incoming tide it may improve over the next few hours. About 4 in the water now. 3 longboards and an SUP.
Patch: I can hear it grunting from the boat ramp as it's trying to produce something resembling a wave. Occasional ankle rollers right between the Meeting Rock and the Patch proper. Right now it's best on the SUP or kayak. We may see some improvement at this location later in the day as tide fills in. Keep an eye out for evening rights.
