Daily Surf Report - 7/29/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
I get by with a little help from my friends. - Ringo Starr

This PSA brought to you today by The Ocean:
Please do not take all the beach sand on your wetsuits, booties and surfboards.  The shop does not want it.  The storm drains do not want it.  The streets do not want it, but the ocean does.  Thank you for your cooperation.

It's another overcast morning as the clouds are sitting low and pockets of fog are scattered throughout the area. Yet it is still a beautiful morning as the ocean is clear and glassy and all manor of wildlife are out and about doing their thing. Air temps are at 60F and the wind is nonexistent as we kick off the day. Today would be a wonderful day for a hike as the sun will hopefully break through later today as it did yesterday in the afternoon. Why a hike you ask? Well there is little to no swell still and the wind will most likely pick up later today as it did yesterday. But that isn't to say there is no fun to be had, so come out and spend some time in the sand and relax. 

CHANNEL:  Glassy this morning as little ankle biters break on the exposed sand bars. Middle groin and seadrift will be the better peaks later today. No one is out and nothing very rideable is available as of now. The tide will have to come in before I suggest going out.  

PATCH:  Little waves in the knee high range are rolling and rolling and rolling in some more, but never quite breaking until they reach the dry and exposed rocks and the shore. No one is out here, but it is possible that these knee high sliders will be rideable later today with the incoming tide.
