Daily Surf Report - 1/23/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"In times of joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag." - WH Auden 

New primary W swell is upon us.  Moderate height with a good long interval.  Starting to show now and will fill in and improve throughout the day and into the weekend.  We also have clear, sunny skies with a high pressure system over the region.  Unexpected colors on the horizon and a sunrise beyond words over the S hills.  Expect warm temps, offshore winds and smooth ocean conditions.  All the makings are in place for an EPIC beach weekend.  

CHANNEL: Outer Channel bar swell suited for longboards and breaking both right and left in the chest high realm.   A bit on the low tide side so pick and choose those with more water rather than less.  Towards Seadrift the rights hold form as well and can be surfed with abandon as the crowd is thin.  Off the Groin bar the lefts reel and are hollow yet hold no openings for exits or expression.  Pull in and shut out the world for one second.  Low tide making waves jack and pitch but mind the bottom as it comes up quick.  Size runs waist high and better and the in-betweeners tend to hold the most shape and promise.  Incoming tide should smooth things out and level the playing field. 

PATCH:  Punchy with peaks a plenty and enough water to make things interesting.  Longboard festival as there are plenty of rides being delivered and size is waist to chest outside.  Inside rights revel in the W swell and pulse along towards the sand.  Mind the rocks as they lurk and see all.  They are covered but only by a threadbare blanket.  Risk vs. Reward is to be contemplated wisely this morning.
