Daily Surf Report - 5/22/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end.” - Ernest Hemmingway

Misty morning yet magical nonetheless.  Should eventually burn off and show sunshine but for now cool, calm and quiet with a sneaky temp of 55F.  Finally some water in the morning for the early crew and glassy / small surf conditions prevail.  Still getting a little hit of NW windswell while the S is fading away.  Some spots feeling it more than others but you can get busy on a longboard if you want. 

CHANNEL:  In the Channel proper (where the sandbars have moved) there are waves that are rideable.  At this locale today there are rights and lefts to be ridden and with the start of the out going tide it is starting to stand up.  Size is waist high or better and a few look really good.  As the dropping tide speeds up the deep water in the Channel will rip this wave to shreds but for now it works and about 5 are on it with reckless abandon.

PATCH:  Not feeling it today.  Nothing but hope and future promise for a new S swell to arrive.  Very nearly flat with just the semi-occasional knee high right on the inside.  Not even the SUP or NUP crew is out there today.

Respect the Beach.
