Daily Surf Report - 1/2/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present." - Bil Keane

One day down and in the books.  Long haul ahead to see things through.  Fear not as the temp has creeped up to 40F with frosty patches and sunshine for everyone.  Splendid in many respects and a day to get out and take advantage of nature's gifts that are granted today.  No wind to ruffle the smooth ocean surface.  Horizontal as far as the eye can see.  An unbroken plane on which surfing is currently not possible.  Fantastic conditions for canoes, SUPs, kayaks, water rafts, pontoon boats and swimmers however.  Not even suitable for amateur surfers at this time.  A recumbent swell of no consequence is upon us this morning.  There are 364 more days to improve conditions.

CHANNEL:  A multitude of pelicans bobbing and weaving on unbroken surfaces.  No waves and no joy today.

PATCH:  El parche está muerto
