Daily Surf Report - 7/31/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
"Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do." - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

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.

Low and thick fog and moistness morning.  Spritzing drizzle but not rain.  Calm and peaceful morning with a few puffs of wind from the S.  Temp is 60F and sun will not be available until the mid afternoon.  Snarf your vitamin D tablets orally for best results.  Minor uptick in steep angle S swell but Patch water levels are low at this time.  Try wait until the afternoon to see if it materializes into rideable surf.  There are still some small nuggets out there to ride and it will be Surf Camp Delight shortly.  Incoming tide will help especially if the winds stay calm.  

CHANNEL: Middle Groin bar displaying knee high and better waves this morning that should improve in shape as the tide fills in later this morning.  Now a bit chopped but still rideable sections for longboard glory.  Deeper Channel bar working about the same effectiveness and keep your eye on Mali-Bo as the tide fills in.  Sand has moved about and ripping here can be accomplished under the proper conditions.      

PATCH:  Very small waves and the low tide is the reason.  Steep angle S swell in play but a bit more water is needed.  Wait for the turnaround which is happening shortly and see if this spot doesn't tickle your fancy then.  Now under knee high ship-stern crunchers that have minor appeal.
