Daily Surf Report - 10/31/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees." - Hal Borland
 

Fillet of a fenny snake, in the cauldron boil and bake; eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing, for a charm of powerful trouble, like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble. 



CHANNEL:  Currently a hodgepodge of mixed ingredients primarily composed of dropping tide and fading swells.  A secondary blend of flavor is in formative stages and not adding to the prevalent stew.  Lower level waves washing over composed bars but yielding only a minor reward in the early hours.  Not stopping the suited and booted crowd as they disgorge vehicular contents and begin the parade to the water's edge.  Expectations of fine Fall weather and renewing ocean energy may need to be tempered just a tad as mid-day high tides may play a role in what truly is revealed.


PATCH:  At a relative loss of SW swell initiative the Patch is relegated to second class status.  Though tide levels remain optimum and rocks stay safely tucked away the deliverance is knee knocking at best.  Quite possibly will awaken when the tides pushes forth but presumption of vast improvement may be greatly overestimated.

Daily Surf Report - 10/30/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"Knowledge is a polite word for dead but not buried imagination." - e. e. cummings


A palpable calm as the furious beach rush dwindles and current swells start the fading process.  Though parking remains nil and tides have hit low all is not what it seems as reality trumps perception.  Already clear skies with hues of indigo and faint streaks of sunlight breaking through.  Though 54F a slight shudder as bare skin meets morning air.  Loggers languish and thoughtfully pull on rubber accouterments.  The rubbing of wax upon fiberglass surfaces are the only sounds heard and a welcome reprieve from the recent cacophony.  



CHANNEL: Piquing interest for many though the outside peaks look UN-encumbered currently.  Lefts of a decent content and shape are revealed in the early light.  Current crew seems satisfied with the meager offerings of the inner Groin bar which provides and abides with lesser quantities.  Low tide levels still more than adequate and the incoming time is NOW.  Align your inner chakra then find your place in the lineup.  How bout a Fresca?  


PATCH: A bubbling brew of less organization than warranted.  Not quite coordinated to deliver maximum benefit though through the deck haze outside rollers seem to rear up and fold over.  Large logs headed this well will return with tales of slides both port and starboard.  Join the fray and flail away.  It is all good today.

Daily Surf Report - 10/29/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"Some people never go crazy, What truly horrible lives they must live." - Charles Bukowski



Dawn light reveals shapes of form and function and the morning hustle begins in earnest.  New swell commences to build while others linger and last.  The siren's call has reached the farthest domains as booted feet pad towards the water's edge.  Sleds of all shape and manner are being dusted off and re-waxed in preparation for anticipated exploits.  The time is NOW as the tides swing low and give everyone a chance at a peaceful entrance and exit.  




CHANNEL: Puffing its chest out a bit as it takes a liking the the NW directional flow.  Some bars are better than others and that is true outside of the water as well.  Choose your watering hole wisely as some close early while others stay open to the wee hours.  A hefty serving of your beverage of choice is available at most points on the compass so travel wisely.  Pull up a chair and spin a yarn as the waves are free and worth the price of admission.  Don't forget to tip well and keep all your secrets to yourself.  


PATCH: Slightly cleaned up as the SW swell fades but still keeps a slight hold here.  Less mayhem and more manageable but that is before we add people to the mix.  Frenzied surfers with flaming egos and fragile fiberglass will soon descend to make quick decisions from concrete walls and blossoming boulders.  Salvation in saltwater may be found today without looking too far.

Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams for an instant, then it's night once more." - Samuel Beckett



Come one, come all, as the time for rejoicing is now. Though the light remains dim, and many faces grim, a quiet tide of jubilation is rising. The sheer number of bodies moving towards the breakers or towards the shore should provide all the evidence needed. A flurry of excitement and anticipation floats up, as if mist, from damp and sandy blacktop. Parking, you ask? Maybe on the mesa, I'm sure there's a shuttle....


CHANNEL: A ever-present stream of forms descend concrete and re-bar towards active waters and promises of stoke. It's all happening at once, as even the far reaches of SeaDrift are providing shapes, slides, and rides at this hour. Mind the gap, raise a flap, and find your line, they are plentiful. Step inside, it's coming down in sheets...


PATCH: More chaos than perfection, but activity levels have those observers atop seawalls frothing at the potential. Far reaches and inside breeches are all careening towards the bitter end, with arms akimbo and feet towards the nose. There is no time but now, seekers. Let it all come down...

Daily Surf Report - 10/27/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is buried in darkness." - Jean Genet



A haze of consequence shines down upon a a troubled paradise, as vehicles of all manner crowd roadside attractions and neoprene interactions. Parking? Not likely my friends, as the scramble is on just past dawn. Glass and foam are willing to roam and as one observes every shape, size, and color, as sliders seek satisfaction, and gaze longingly towards the horizon. The mythical "SOUTH SWELL" is still conjecture at this hour, but that stops no one. Come on in, the water's fine....


CHANNEL: A crowd gathers, perched upon personal flotation devices of all stripe. At present, shapes of merit are only strolling along the path towards the shore, and time for quiet contemplation and desperation is available in spades. When the shadow rises from the distance however, there is palpable excitement, as inside lefts raise eyebrows and expectations. All that time you thought I was sad, I was trying to remember your name...


PATCH: Though only the domain of a small collection of sliders currently, do not expect this to remain so, as word of the shapes being enjoyed will travel, and those not here already will be in transit. Outside or inside, what's your pleasure? Yards of casual stoke as one careens down the line? Or sweeping bottom turns that even the saltiest must admit are things of beauty? All of the above are available and occurring. When there's nothing left to burn....

Daily Surf Report -10/26/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"Mass culture is enlightenment in reverse. It's goal is precisely to wipe out that last little garrison of human autonomy." - Rick Roderick



Low visibility and a damp one can't evade as Black Metal Monday vibes fall upon the village of destiny at this early hour. Though there are promises of sun, those words may ring hollow, though one is hard-pressed to state with certainty. One can state, however, that parking is already as dense as the fog, and if your plans involve suiting and booting, you will hardly be alone. Lonely perhaps, as you will not be able to make out more than fiery shadows of your compatriots currently. Tis true that the predictions of a swell from the south ring between every slider's ears, the current NW is providing and abiding from fish to log, from grom to barnacle as morning rolls it's own way.


CHANNEL: Largely abandoned as beach access is limited at best, the ramp already shows signs of debris and debauchery, and the shadow and outline of shapes bring with them a terrible beauty and a ferocity of sound at present. Though there will be doorways of stoke through which to pass, they will require the third-eye retinal scan and just a dash of the foolhardy.


PATCH: A line-up so deceptive as this is only in memory, as nothing can be gained from shore. One should take a moment to assess one's route, as bodies and boards appear with little to no warning. Mid-torso and on the rise, tis the kind of rare morning when a short-board digs down the line and one wipes the salt and brine to make sure what one just witnessed. Inside offers shapes of quality and rides of merit, but be mindful and aware, mother ocean takes no heed for you...

Daily Surf Report - 10/25/2015


Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"I think everybody's nuts."  -Johny Depp


A preview of S swell greets us this morning and gives us hope to get us through the day. Feeling chilly at 56F as of now and heavy case of overcast still hanging around. If today is anything like yesterday the sun will rise and we will get some heat. Fall weather with summer vibes. For now just thank Mother Earth for some fun surf.


CHANNEL: Too much water here but it isn't full yet. Swampy wash coming through the Channel and the tide is still on the rise. We hope to see better conditions here later after high tide, try wait.  Rewards will be given for the chosen few.


PATCH: Looking extra fun today so join the crowd. Bring a sled longer than your body and find some fun rides lasting longer than just a moment. Knee+ and sometimes ranging up to chest if you bend your knees a little. Fun little ramps can be found if you look hard enough.

Daily Surf Report - 10/24/2015



Inspirational Quote Of The Day:  
"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path." - Buddha


Conservative times as NW swell eases back after an evening bump and SW swell huddles in the background.  Pushing tides has windows opening and closing at inopportune times with water levels rising and draining with reckless abandon.  Still a formidable crew attaching themselves to neoprene, planks and leg ropes in hopes of acquiring that one magic ride.  Jump on the bandwagon and celebrate the current good fortune while keeping an open eye for treasures revealed and an open mind for positive thoughts. 


CHANNEL:  Liking the swell direction but not the aquatic heights of a tidal making.  More water on the way and already on overload and swampy.  What rollers hit the bar at the precise angle of capacitance yield lurching lefts that have chest high aspirations and flowing form indeed.  A peek at Mali-Bo and the Seadrift destinations will acknowledge rights seeking bottom contours that bend and curve.  The lucky few that can align all the matrices will find waves forged from a distant station and worth an attempt, or two.  


PATCH:
Si seƱor, Beluga, but it is 80 dollars a portion.
Well, then I better just take two portions of that.
Also, a steak sandwich and...... a steak sandwich.
