Daily Surf Report - 5/23/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” - Les Brown

Overcast again but balmy and calm.  Glassy conditions and serenity reigns supreme.  Still have some NW windswell and the start of a new SW swell as well.  Direction is good for Bolinas and there are fun waves to be had.  Go Biz Markie style today and bring a friend to share the stoke.  Slide and glide your cares and troubles away then attack the day with a vengeance.  Currently 54F.  No sun yet and may not show til later.  We don't need the vitamin D today as the tides are good and the weekend is on the horizon.  

CHANNEL:  Just a few small pulses here on the last of the incoming high tide.  Best bars are in the Channel and that water may be too deep right now.  A couple of thigh high lefts off the Groin bar but few and far between.  I know Seadrift is out there in the fog and investigation may be worthwhile for small drainers to ride.  Lots of sand has migrated and the ocean surface is smooth and inviting.  Outgoing tide may peak it up a notch.  Stay tuned.

PATCH:  SW swell direction rolling in to the Patch this morning.  Smoothness on the surface and rolling rights are being ridden.  Size goes thigh to waist but with the tide up the wave can stretch and run towards shore so a few long rides are available.  All crystals are focused here today and it should have surf all day.  Currently about 8 in the water.

Respect the Beach.
