Daily Surf Report - 1/31/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day:
"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever." - Jacques Yves Cousteau

Load the VU and pump the volume to set an influential vibe for the day.  Follow frolicking foxes as they lead you to Nirvana.  Tread lightly around the squashed skunks as they emit bad juju.   Positive Bolinas morning for the early risers as NW swell remains in play although peaking tide keeping it soft.  Energy is out there and plenty of water is moving about.  In & Out wall rides can be had for the skillful as you make your ocean entry.  Broken boards and bones are available for those that don't play nice with Mother Ocean.  Brisk at 45F with full sunshine upon us now.  Light side-shore winds dimpling the ocean a touch but relatively smooth for the most part.  Surf to be had if you know where to look.  Consult crystals for further guidance.  Roll out the awning, SaltyStyle, and make it a beach day of it. 

CHANNEL:  A slight shift in swell direction but still delivering the goods in the Channel.  Rollers that form and fold are the offerings of the day.  On the deeper bar and over towards Seadrift are peaks to split going left and right.  Try double down and make a run and both waves as they bend along in the deeper water.  Size runs waist high and there are nooks and crannies offering up smoothness this morning.  Off the inner Groin bar are short lefts heading towards a divining destiny with the sunken concrete wall.  Otherwise the inside rights hold up and there are long Lama-style rides that run into and along the Channel walls.  Choose wisely or sample both as the opportunities are plenty and the party has just started.  Getting a bit wonky and whompy with the peaking high tide.  Outgoing shows a steep drop and promises to reformulate the shape.  

PATCH:  Showing no love and less wave activity today.  Peaks are marginal and encumbered with high tide fullness.  Those that break have maximum potential of thigh high and access is an adventure of wall and rock climbs to reach a suitable destination.  Rocks do remain covered with the high tide but water levels are not optimal for ultimate glides this morning.
