Daily Surf Report - 5/18/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Don't ever give up. Don't ever give in. Don't ever stop trying. Don't ever sell out. And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up.” - Richelle E. Goodrich

Hello earthlings and welcome Sunday morning.  We are overcast with patches of sunshine but balmy at 57F with no wind yet.  Expecting partial sun and partial surf as a new SW swell starts to fill in and a small NW windswell adds to the mix.  Grab the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers and find your way to the beach today.  If it is working on the negative low tide it should work even better with actual water covering the bottom.  Just an amateur uneducated guesstimate on our part.

CHANNEL:  The tide is hitting rock bottom and I mean below sea level lows this morning.  Plenty of exposed sand bars and other unmentionables this morning so shield your eyes until the turnaround.  There is a bit of swell that should give you something to ride here but just a bit too low to really have shape and ferocity.  3 in the water battling the bottom for knee high mushburgers that are short and sweet on this beautiful day.  

PATCH:  Patch Peelers in the thigh + range that are popping up here and there as the water levels allow.  Plenty of rocks UN-encumbered this morning and a few boiling just below the surface.   Nonetheless there are some rideable waves here and it should only get better when the water fills in.  Good tides throughout the later part of the day and the swell direction works as well.  Fingers and toes crossed and crystals rubbed together for a day of positivity, peace and peaky waves.  5 in the water now.

Respect the Beach.
