Daily Surf Report - 5/30/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”- Karl Popper

Overcast but calm morning with no wind and an initial temp of 54F.  Should eventually see sunny skies but it will gradually arrive.  Still have that pesky negative low tide in the early morning putting a clamp on some of the surf.  NW windswell is predominantly showing yet the S swell on the buoys seems to have improved a bit.  Will need higher tide to see if this pans out in the Patch but for now the Channel has something to work with.  It is all in your minds eye today.  Make something out of nothing and cherish every wave.

CHANNEL:  Tide working its way back now but plenty of sand and shallow conditions prevail.  A few scattered lefts to ride in the Groin bar region and while size is small at thigh high the shape is good and a couple rides are long.  Micro-sliders for sure but enough push with the incoming tide to get the longboard moving in the right direction.  About 7 in the water and it should improve with more water as the day rolls on. 

PATCH:  Smooth as silk and soft to boot.  A goodly amount of exposed rocks and a few took out a few boards yesterday - keeping the ding repair crew busy.  Have your head on a swivel and know your bottom contours for best results.  Just occasional wave action in the calf to knee high range and a few SUPs of note on it with 2 loggers out the back as well.  If the S swell has juice we'll see it here in a few hours when water levels rise.

Respect the Beach.
