Daily Surf Report - 9/22/2013

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
“Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” - Thomas Edison

Gazing into our crystal ball we see the first signs of Fall.  Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and many people turn inward, both physically and mentally.  We start to see the start of Winter surf season as well with swells coming down from the NW delivering some juice.

We have perfectly clear skies this morning with a temp of 53F.  Sunshine prevails and there is NO wind.  Storm surf has cleaned up a bit but dropped in size.  Clean and small and rideable as well.  Bring your log and get a few.


CHANNEL:  Set and hard sandbars in the Channel.  Waves in the thigh high + size when they hit just right.  A bit on the low tide side as it just bottomed out and is starting to fill back in.  Another hour of water will help things out.  About 10 in the water on the outside bar riding lefts and the occasional right towards Seadrift.  Beautiful beach day and perfect surf conditions for beginners. 
PATCH:  Outside rollers mostly for the janitor set.  Soft and hard to get into without a paddle.  Inside Snags section had rideable peaks that roll to the beach in the sandy section.  Wave size up to waist high but needs a bit more water to cover up the exposed rocks and getting working a little more consistent.  Still fun stuff on a longboard. 

PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT.  Respect the Beach.
