Daily Surf Report - 6/16/2015

Inspirational Crystal Quote Of The Day: 

“The truth is, of course, that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time." - David Bowie

A hint of a chill and a fog of meaning reveals themselves as morning begins in the village. We gaze upon a forlorn and abandoned coastline at first light, and marvel at dozens of empty parking spaces. Though today may be a day of self-assessment and appraisal, these truths will not be revealed in current water levels. The charts and times will be the key, so keep a watchful and hopeful eye on future hours.

CHANNEL:  A resolute quiet. The almost imperceptible whistle of wind. Yards of exposed sand and bits of driftwood. This is the way, step inside. 

PATCH: Tis' a telling sight when nary a mariner is observed in these waters at first light. Current  levels are providing no reason for joy in Mudville, as Casey won't even be leaving the dugout. As we approach the post luncheon portion of the day, stoke potential increases, but only in increments, so temper your expectations, and let your mind bathe in a pure positivity.

Important Note from the Bolinas Fishing Community:
When heading out the Channel,  the fishing boats have a very narrow slot to navigate and the fishermen have to "thread the needle" to avoid having their boats dumped by waves. The boats don't have the ability or opportunity to veer away from oncoming waves and must take them straight on. Surfers - please practice Ocean Courtesy when boats are heading in and out of the Channel and paddle out of the boat's path to let them through. This will also help in avoiding being run over by a boat at speed.
