Daily Surf Report - 4/26/2017



Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"You're only given a little spark of madness. You musn't loose it." - Robin Williams


Bleak, dreary and wet; water, ocean, rain; clouds, mist, windshield wipers. All this and more....what a day to be alive! Some may say that they are done with this weather but let us not forget that April showers bring May flowers; besides, it seems the rain is not sticking around to hang all day. Out in the ocean a nay sayer is not found here today. As for the waves scientists have been studying them for so many years and we still don't quite understand them...who's to say? There is a SW swell proposed to build now coming in short amplitude with a long period while a NW may build for more speed but it's still in that go-between. Rocking a 58F tan amidst cloudy skies and a drizzle that is proposed to come and go. We are here, they are there, where are you?


CHANNEL: A few numbers here getting the rock and roll hang of it all. A body surfer, some long boarders and the groin. What a party, don't forget the sunscreen, beach blankets and towels for we're in for it today. Up, down, left and right go far or near just never quit. Carpe diem.


PATCH:  As it is known, wave energy moving through a medium is not actually moving the medium itself. There are shadows of rollers out here but the water itself is not advancing, only the wave energy...unless it is breaking on the sand and only then is it being displaced by a fraction. Never near, some far. Lost in the haze. Alone. Dazed and confused.

Daily Surf Report - 4/25/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Quite simply: the ocean doesn't subscribe to the orderly explanations that we would like it to." - Susan Casey



I am greeted this morning with a parking lot full of cars and a sea of people but this is not the typical surfer morning chaos for this lot seem to be beginners pure and true. There is excitement in the air, smiles to be shared and sunshine about; the temperature welcomes us this morning at 60F and the winds that look strong inland seem to be keeping calm-ish out in the water. Calm waters and a mix of fading NW swell and SW winds could grant us some decent rollers but as the morning continues it seems our hopes may be dashed as the sun is blocked and the winds pick up.


CHANNEL: An abundance of foam boards head over to this area as instructors, intermediates and beginners alike rejoice in the sunshine. Later in the morning this area may present itself but the con may be the high numbers of people....just as in life, it seems to be a give and take.



PATCH:  Bring out the long boards and catch the rollers for they have only just begun. Frequency here as it's a classic patch morning and if you've followed Patch Adams into the endless sea of gratitude you shall never have a bad day in the water.

Daily Surf Report - 4/24/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." - Ralph Waldo Emerson



Slowed and sedated with those in the know elated.  Peaking NW swell finding a foothold while a background south keeps all others slip sliding.  Tidal swings and morning bird sings under overcast skies with clearing potential.  Temp of 54F and just a touch of SW winds only causing ripple effects felt for thousands of miles.  The usual suspects and the morning regulars exult in the absence of mayhem.



CHANNEL: Morphing crests heading left and holding form and shimmery shine.  Peace pockets and bottle rockets and maybe a fish to ride if you fancy.  Hail or fail and hold your rail as you duck and tuck or run and turn.  Incoming tide seems to be helping with and extra surge and waist high or better waves are available.



PATCH:  Calf burners and no turners with rollers situated to stand and deliver. Slip sliders for log riders with silken faces both in and out of the water.  Don't bide your time for the time is now.

Daily Surf Report - 4/23/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Some people never go crazy.  What truly horrible lives they must lead." - Charles Bukowski 



Psychosomatic t.v. static and calisthenic micro-management, it's a doozy of a beautiful day out here. I'm talking sunshiny eyeballs and slow jazz playing crab claws. Cute puppies on coat tails and neon pink top sails. If you think life is weird please don't shave your beard.
Crystal champagne clear skies in this salty town with a lil' extra of those salty lumps for all you water bathing ripple ridders. Warm and wonderful out here with three people wearing life jackets for absolutely no reason. High tides this morning adding a proper amount of moisture for those having early meditation in the big blue church. With the smell of love in the air the oceans sending some puckered lips for us to kiss.  (Broken glass on brighton, skip at own risk.)

 

CHANNEL: Little chummy runners messing up my bad day. Only a handful of humanoids and some semi section-y sandbars looking as defined as a dictionary... that's only slightly out of date. Plenty of morning glass and passed gas for everyone so share. As if driving, when turning right, please look left and give way. No bad blood boys and girls and get a little belly high cranker to yourself.



PATCH:  Street cats and beach rats rejoice rocks and lego blocks are submerged. Far outside rollers passing into cruzy inside growers all speckled with old easter peeps. Plant a tree, bring your log and get those toes front and center. Juvenile delinquency will not be tolerated but a well matured delinquent will receive a bag of gold chocolate coins at the shop from 9:45am-10:22pm. 16ft SUP tandem fishing tournament will begin at outside meeting rock tonight. Bring your fun hats for a ankle chaser up to a waist high racer.

Daily Surf Report - 4/22/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The eagle has no fear of adversity.  Be like the eagle and have a fearless spirit of the conquerer!" - Joyce Meyer


Lyrids meteor peaks.  Older NW swell depletes.  New S swell creeps.  All factors are at hand and emphatically beyond our control.  Let free will guide and Jah provide as we decipher the possibilities.  Subtleties become known under overcast skies and no winds to commence the morning.  Temps of 50F are a moderate welcome for bare feet.  High tide pushing forwards and up has the momentum slowed down.  No shortage of vehicles unloading their wares as sliders get ready to post up for the day.

 

CHANNEL: Little eyes spy on the inside a wave rolling through Mali-Bo with the incoming tide.  As it crests this too will become but a memory you will wonder ever existed.  With the NW swell faded one must reconfigure expectations then attempt to meet or exceed.  Knee high.



PATCH: 

Say when you get down
Look to your left
Say when you get up
Look to your right
Figure out the puzzle
Make sure the pieces fit tight


 PACK IT IN.  PACK IT OUT.

Daily Surf Report - 4/21/2017


Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." - Martin Luther King, Jr.


With the haze of yesterday gone one can begin to focus on important matters at hand.  Our spirits are lifted by the westerly swell fusion that delves to deliver stoke in both localities.  Light E winds for grooming purposes and clear skies filled with sun and prophecies.  Temps start at 44F and will warm gradually to a moderate level.  High tide peaking but not stopping the seeking for those on the hunt for slides.

 

CHANNEL: A level headed approach will yield rewards today with some waves being cleaner than others.  All will provide adequate propulsion and the sandbars seem split on which direction it prefers.  Wave heights ranging from thigh to waist + as the tide tops out and ebbs.  Full of reflective energy from above and kinetic energy below.



PATCH: 
It's hypnotizing 
It sends me to sleep 
No one talks to anyone else 
It's frightening 
Everybody's minds are blank 
Oh - oh hypnotizing


 PACK IT IN.  PACK IT OUT.
