Daily Surf Report - 5/31/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“A person is not given integrity. It results from the relentless pursuit of honesty at all times.”- Unknown

Happy Birthday Rikster!  Festivities will take place in the water and on the beach at the Patch.  We are working on shuttle service to keep the bi-pedal wear and tear to a minimum.  Gifts and donations to the Human Fund are welcome and can be left at the shop for later distribution.  

Overcast, foggy and S winds start the morning - no bueno.  Hope for clearing skies and easing wind throughout the day but that remains to be seen.  Temp creeping in at 52F and an overall misty / moist morning.  S swell looks to have eased off and NW windswell remains active.  Tide still heading to a negative low but the turnaround will start soon and the later part of the day has good water levels.  Generally mixed up and sloppy at the moment but it is the weekend and summer is almost here so make you way to the beach and join the party for Rik - EVERYONE is welcome.  

CHANNEL:  A pod of 8 surfers on it like maggots as the tide bottoms out and the sandbars expose.  Shifty and slappy in the knee high size but they are making it work so it could work for you as well.  Groin bar looks to work best with the low water levels and Seadrift bars may like the NW windswell direction.  Take a chance on glory and paddle out.  Remember - the worst day surfing always beats the best day working.  Yewwww.

PATCH:  Too low and too small this time.  Bottoming out tide in preparation for the big RIK birthday party.  Saving up energy and water for the incoming tide push.  The S has eased off but still should show here when the tide rises.  Right now choppy and ankle high goodness which no one is riding?!?!  Plenty of rocks to pick and explore but surfing here will have to wait until later in the day.

Respect the Beach.
