Daily Surf Report - 5/21/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“I like cheese with a frosty beverage." - Unknown

Good morning to all of you sliders and gliders and welcome to the middle of the week. I certainly hope all is well with you as you are reading this while sipping your coffee/tea/absinthe/bourbon. Let's look and see what we have for you today, shall we? The sun is fighting harder than Danny 'Little Red' Lopez to free itself from the confines of this marine layer that is actually starting to burn off as the temperature is meandering in at an acceptable 55 degrees. None-the-less, the birds are all out singing harmonies in the fashion of The Holmes Brothers. There is also a stiffening, on-shore breeze billowing in that has textured the waters surface, so we'll keep an eye on that as well. If things do change and they always do, we'll keep you posted right here.

CHANNEL:  With this out-going tide it looks more like a watery, moving sidewalk in reverse as the "waves" that are coming in at waist high level are getting pimp-slapped into sectioning messes. I'd personally wait until the tide turns around, but if you're impetuous and need something now then I say enjoy your morning here at camp Slapaho. One (1) person out now getting...well, slapped.

PATCH:  Yesterday is gone and today is here and the Patch is struggling to keep any semblance from yesterday's wave party. What does come through is a slow-poke, thigh-high gurgler AT BEST from the middle of the Patch. With this on-shore wind that is building and the out going tide.... whew. I'd apply the "wait and and see" policy today. Four (4) there now... looks like Los hermanos Bradley, DB the wonder surfer and one unidentified.

Respect the Beach.
