Daily Surf Report - 7/18/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
“Sometimes it's not the strength but gentleness that cracks the hardest shells.” - Richard Paul Evans

Spritzing moisture but not quite rain.  Overcast and gloomy yet humid and warm at 61F.  No wind and expectations of sun should be realized later in the day.  Meager NW windswell and a decent and mid-period S swell joining forces to deliver the goods this morning.  Not pumping or epic but clean and rideable and the early morning tides were just right like baby bear's porridge.  There is something out there today you just have to have on open mind to see it.  

CHANNEL:  Tide has peaked and now begins to drop until the late morning.  Not going negative but will eventually be too low to have good surf.  A clean wave breaking straight through the middle of the Channel and thigh to waist high in size breaking predominantly left with a little attempt at going right as well.  Overall and nice wave to view and ride and your longboard should agree as well.  Evening tides will be good as well. 

PATCH:  Plenty of early morning water and the early birds catching the worm.  Mostly middle style rights that the Power Mouse knows how to ride.  Officially un-scored but the shop judges declare him the clear king today.  Size remains up to waist high +/- but smooth and holding shape this morning.  Tide now dropping so tread lightly as the rocks will expose and are always lurking below.  Evening incoming tide should have fun stuff as well so take advantage today as S swells do tend to die out quickly.


The Kahuna Kupuna is the only surf contest in the world that is specifically designed to honor the more experienced surfers (in age) among us!  Kahuna, in Hawaiian, means “Big Chief” and Kupuna means “grandparent” or “wise elder”.  The main focus of the contest is the Kahuna Kupuna divisions for men and women surfers who are 40 years of age and over, with separate age group sub-divisions for shortboard and longboard surfers. In addition, an Intergenerational Team Division and a Stand Up Paddle Board Division welcomes surfers of all ages.
