Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Where attention goes, energy flows and results show." - T. Harv Eker

 

Early breezes that simultaneously cool and warm take hold but not at demon levels predicted.  Now starting to grow from the NE with some intensity.  Early crew on it to beat the crush and tide as we're fully lit and skies are cleared.  Temps battling back and now up to 57F.  Big Chief N swell a bit steeper than optimal but fully fledged with magnitude.  Rising higher tides causing a bit of funk and junk to an already tempermental ocean.  Most open faced beaches macked out and overwhelmed. 

 

CHANNEL: Mid level sandbars engaged but reticent in the morning window of time.  Outside the Groin pole gatherings fold and flop in both directions - each in equal proportion.  Ride length has been reduced but size up a notch as the swell finds footing but treads cautiously.   Tidal limitations are a factor to contend with all day and must be accounted for if slides are to be realized.

 

PATCH: I just want to be in your panorama.  I'm going to take what's coming to me.  No entanglements and no compromise.  Get the picture, I'm on my knees, looking at your hot shot.  With nothing to do except think about you.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Close the door on the past.  You don't dwell on your mistakes.  You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." - Johnny Cash

 

Changing light as filtered through traveled smoke gives one a new perspective.  Take a moment to just pause and be with yourself before rushing off into the day's adventures.  Take stock in what gives meaning and be thankful for everything around you.  Today a growing NW swell will shift the dynamic and hope to accommodate the patrons.  Cooled out temps and the lightest of E winds keep it smooth and silken.  Early high tide a moderate challenge to resolve.  Later no water at all so mind your tables, be educated and enter wisely.

 

CHANNEL: Early offerings with the incoming tide had some miscellaneous Mali-Bo options on intermittent distribution.  Now we're fully flushed and overwrought with water which has curbed some enthusiasm.  Larger NW swell in override can still fashion some outside breakers but mostly moving waters with less curling action presently.  Outgoing tide has a rapid reduction rate that should open alternatives as well as cause a riptide effect.

 

PATCH: Reinvigorated rights worth investigation with plenty of size and W in the current ocean pulse.  Not nearly the optimum angle of initiation but enough forces from the fathoms to find a purchase.  A bit seesawed with tide but slides can and will be found here today.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none." - William Shakespeare

 

A beseeching chill invades the bones as damp rubber is pulled over dry skin.  The break of light rings crystal clear and the lightest of E winds can be felt but not seen.  New propulsion in the ocean but the old pundits remain the same.  A lack of significant parking may be a signal of something brewing or misguided messages.  Let love be your personal guide and lead you wherever it may.

 

CHANNEL: Languishing in the higher tide with water levels above the norm.  Wait for the mid-morning reduction fluctuation if this is your place of choice.  Current sandbars buried deep under too much water has it slow but not entirely shut down.  Soft peaks perfectly suited to longboard lovers will find lefts heading shore-ward at under thigh high size. 

 

PATCH: The coast line dim from the haze emerges, with tender tints of the fall-time toned.  On silver beaches roll sparkling surges, and woods are green on the hills enthroned.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings." - Eric Hoffer

 

Ready and holding steady in the electric morning light.  Peaked out high tide got it slowed down temporarily as significant NW swell forms a reduction.  Already warming above the 30s and checked in at 42F with the slightest of E winds wafting the scent of bacon to entice.  Water temps continue to hang tough and keep toes warm and the search for serenity is of course never-ending.  The foundation is poured and setting up with wait times more than manageable. 

 

CHANNEL: Interior bar efforts with help from the incoming tide set the stage for the day.  Fragmented peaks with too much water currently.  Divide and conquer with slides to the left or the right.  Now logs are the most appropriate vehicle of choice; later may induce less foam to attain nirvana. 

 

PATCH: A solitary figure forges forwards in the face of incoming tidal forces.  With only W action to facilitate breakers, what exists is smooth but lacking a true engagement.  Less water may allow for forces to fully realize their potential and smooth out the rough edges.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"I like the night.  Without the dark we'd never see the stars." - Stephanie Meyer

 

Carnival cotton candy pinks and blues create the perfect backdrop for the skies main attraction.  The sun's brilliance casting rays in hope of warming the frigid 45 degree air temp.  Hot coffee and tea creating mug smoke signals communicating to the cold blue ocean.  Step carefully as those who are still asleep are not to be woke.  Sometimes waking up is the hardest thing to do.  Those with open eyes can see the energy in wave form on the horizon.

 

CHANNEL: Cold water temps are back though don't let that deter you.  Thigh and waist high sets are rolling through the channel at regular intervals. The WNW swell is here and building throughout the day.  Glassy faces on lefts and rights with no wind in sight.  Switch it up today with a high performance long board or even an egg.  Remember variety is the spice of life!

 

PATCH: It has begun.  The celebration of eight crazy fun nights starts today for those who practice.  The ocean is kicking-off the festivities as dreidel games are being played left and right.  Grab your favorite menorah in anticipation of nights first light.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"With enough time and enough money, you could spend the rest of your life following the summer around the world." - Bruce Brown, The Endless Summer

 

Muted cloudy sunrise over mountain tops commences this week's new beginnings.  Trees bending and groaning against gusts of wind as falling branches litter the streets.  Take a moment to pause and take in nature's beauty as old habits kick-in to start the week. Question routine and ponder when reaching the fork in the road, do I choose the familiar or the unknown?

 

CHANNEL: Small shin white frothy formations rolling in through the groin area.  New WNW swell barely starting to show as SSW swell fading fast.  Not a lot of push in the water as overnight winds are having an effect on this morning.  Seadrift side has a bit more energy in the knee zone.  Long logs will reap the benefits of what the ocean is handing out.

 

PATCH: Looks can be deceiving at first glance.  Don't judge a book by its cover.  Make the time and do a double take to feel the energy.  Those with clear intentions and open minds will find what they are searching for.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Everyone in the world is somehow connected.  So why not just be nice to everybody." - Richard Simmons

 

Easy breezy warm feeling and 50 degrees; easy like Sunday morning.  Incoming cars carving streets in hopes to find the perfect spot. Leveling tides inviting you to come on and party, karambo, fiesta forever.  Come on in and sing along with the oceans rhythm. The big blue is chanting, hello? is it me you're looking for?  Only those who make the journey will find the answer.

 

CHANNEL: Fading WNW swell throughout the day as SSW swell joins in on the action.  Waist high texturized rights and lefts all across the groin.  If you've never experienced the feeling of going both ways, today is your day for enlightenment.  Warm blazing sun creating spraying shadows on the face.  Pick your lane, stay committed to the cause and rejoice in the reward.

 

PATCH: Ambidextrous thighs all the way to shore.  Finally all the crystal recharging and meditating from this past week has paid off.  Get in, get wet and come on get it.  Breakfast is being served.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us." - Joseph Campbell

 

Warm breezes upon wounded knees as we open our eyes to a day filled with far reaching beauty and potential.  Risen sun lights with fiery gold and early temps already at 60F.  Swell blends coagulating with primary westerly directions.  Tides leveling off and facilitating easy access and adequate coverage.  Winter Faire in full swing and treasures can be found without much searching.

 

CHANNEL: Tide slowly bottoming out now and on its way to a turnaround.  Still plenty of water to foster occupation and elation on random bars throughout the region.  Settling in and removing early texture is the new focus.  Ramps reaching waist high parameters are quite possible.  Expand your horizons to branch beyond the norm and explore a new realm today.

 

PATCH: Silken faces and early good graces for the wake up crew.  Strong coffee brew to recharge the energy and motivate the mind.  Rolling rights that can confront or confound have the Patch on alert for lucky loggers.  Tepid waters in the late season make today feel almost like summer.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?" - Charles Bukowski

 

Goose bumps and speed humps as the day begins snappy and clear.  Winds continue NE but without any ferocity or malice and the sunrise sets the world on fire.  The warming routine has begun and we expect a niceness lingering through the weekend.  Continued oceanic approaches from the W elicit interest and activity and the only question remaining is where to paddle out.

 

CHANNEL: Dramatic tide swings are over and moderate water levels remain in effect.  Front and center Channel sandbars seem the magnetic realm for good graces.  Wide reaching swell breaches show some early texture but increased size.  The movements heading left show missed connections while the less traveled right may allow for longer routes.

 

PATCH: Wake me up.  Wake me up before you go.  To the other side of the world that we all know.  The morning sun wants to know.  It wants to know.  Now it knows.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail." - Charles Kettering

 

Cool spots, warm airs, heavy zephyrs rule the day.  Favorable swell motions with a settled NW and growing SW are overwhelmed by current winds from the NE bringing the early temps way up to 64F.  Too much of a good thing is harshing the vibe and most locomotion is not by desire and decidely ungraceful.  Shield your eyes from blowing dusts and find seclusion until conditions are mediated. 

 

CHANNEL:  Tide push knocked down and back by growing gusts in the early hours.  Sand exposure seems greater in comparison to printed statistics.  Swell size and direction is ripe for surf activity but more water and less wind are the components presently unsuitable.  Buy time now for potential action later....

 

PATCH: Collectively conjured entertainment as big boards act as wind sails for those seeking to reach this destination.  Once safely sequestered upon said waters there is a shielding effect that allows hope to override common sense.  What breakers are in effect mature at knee to thigh heights.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If you focus on results, you will never change.  If you focus on change, you will get results." - Jack Dixon

 

Miraculous morning sunrise and all systems remain on go for a premium mid-week offering.  Overnight cooling of both air and water greet the senses and get you wide awake.  E winds now bringing the warmth with temps up to 49F and climbing while sea temps seek a normalcy associated with 56F.  New NW swell is a solid quick hitter with durability to last the day.  Tides are swinging and savage so table consultation is a must to best take advantage of what may be in store.

 

CHANNEL:  Incoming tide options propel one to inside infiltration zones.  Somewhat unrefined activity but willing areas worth exploration.  A size expansion since yesterday has best bets above the human thigh.  Hermit crabs dispense knowledge and betting options for any willing to listen. Those that truly seek, usually find. 

 

PATCH: Re-activated and reactionary with rights rolling right on through.  Optimal tides early, overwhelming later and depleted at dark.  Choose wisely and always bring your biggest board to the party.

"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius.  Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius." - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

 

Wide open roads leading to open minds with a yellow orange sun welcoming this morning glory.  A cool 48 nips at our souls as we make our journey to the great big blue.  Quite and still, the sound of waves crashing against the boat ramp is all that can be heard.  Thumping tidal swings from high to negative low.  Perfect timing is key in order to ride the blue rhythmic tune.  Map out the plan and stick to it as those who have their eyes on the prize will achieve.

 

CHANNEL:  Slow ocean motion moving in until noon.  No white water in sight as the NW swell is taking the day off today.  Ankle over toe near the groin on tap this morning, with hopes of changing conditions this afternoon.  If you have always wanted to swim in the channel, today is your lucky day.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say 'I want to see the manager." - William S. Burroughs

 

A spectacular sunrise has sent it's beams to the beach. The people of town are already out walking and shouting on this fine Monday morning. Glassy waters reflect the bright light even more than usual, so keep your shades on and your brims low. The day is shaping up to be a good one, but the tides may say otherwise. Extreme late morning high tide drops to a great negative in a hurry. Now may be the time, if at all. Obey the laws of the land but please, don't throw rocks.

 

CHANNEL:  Water already running up the ramp for what seems to be the beginning of the high high tide. Nothing surfable around the groin at the moment, but sweet little sliders are breaking right off shore. (Good luck)

 

PATCH: Flat and shiny, but always worth a look. May shape up but also might overflow. Who's to say?

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun." - Duke Kahanamoku

 

Cool moist morning dew overlays beneath feet and a resounding bright sun rises above.  The humming of car engines drown out morning song birds praying for obtainable parking.  A cold 45 degrees outside as members of sea congregations gather for the remaining NW swell.  Act fast, the time for fun is now as tidal swings shift to negative this afternoon. 

 

CHANNEL:  Water lapping the boat ramp in a rhythmic tune making the approach difficult as the tide creeps in.  NW swell reinforcing it's hold in the water.  Groin sand bar holding for now as the tide rises helping create thigh high peelers.  More size on the Sea Drift side in the waist zone.  A couple dozen neoprene friends out celebrating with high fives and smiles. 

 

PATCH: Green wall over-spray covering backs while walking to smaller offerings.  If waves were like playgrounds, welcome to Middle School.  Lumps and bumps on the horizon materialize in a moody form.  Sometimes knee, sometimes ankle, it can't decide how to feel.  Take a chance and introduce yourself to the small lunch group already gathered.  Who knows, you may make a friend.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"A warm smile is the universal language of kindness." - William Arthur Ward

 

Encumbered attendees flood the scene and NW swell continues to mack.  Freshly cleared skies leave no doubt and temp rolls in at 42F to initiate the day.  NE winds again working to keep it clean but abundant tide swings may have other plans.  Grand amounts of water moving around and plenty of sliders bobbing, weaving and searching.  Full moon evening so at least get your crystals cleansed and recharged and remember Dave likes to sleep in on weekends. 

 

CHANNEL:  Tide pulsing and swell peaking makes this a congested arena.  Observation points swamped and entries require timing and persistence.  Enough swell to outweigh the water levels but bar corners are still the cleanest peaks to pick.  Nestle inside among the smoother breakers and avoid the outside mayhem the day is sure to bring.  Any and all board could be appropriate today and above waist high aspirations can be attained.

 

PATCH: High tide override as NW swell has enough juice to jump the reef.  Morning opportunities are limited by a simple supply v. demand curve.  Randomly disseminated breakers give the illusion of more.  Pick quality over quantity and accentuate the positive.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The secret of achievement is to hold a picture of a successful outcome in your mind." - Henry David Thoreau

 

Ramp spillage sends the seekers scurrying for dry perches to observe.  Generous amounts of water and swell co-join forces to invigorate the morning.  Lifted fog by NE winds provide clearing skies and temp of 47F.  Altered angles allowing for deeper penetration of propulsive forces.  Tide swings keep it interesting and boundaries are being constantly expanded or improvised.

 

CHANNEL:  A peaked tide with depth to spare has momentum crashers and seawall splashers in spades.  Interior corners can be utilized for speed runs to shore.  External energies are the lure yet produce less often.  There is more than meets the eye and the new aspect of direction has favorable connotations. 

 

PATCH: More tide / Less swell.  Infiltrated with stand tall patronage pursuing out and back excursions.  Breakers are less present and swell course not favorable for morning slides.  Less water may allow for existential experiences but that remains an unknown at this time.  For now just BE.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Give everyday the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life." - Mark Twain

 

Creamsicle tints and a cool rinse with water temps hovering around 59F.  Not a product of global warming which apparently doesn't exist.  Put environmental concerns in the back of your mind and refocus on the task at hand - stoke seeking.  Vibrant skies to all open eyes and sun to warm the morning chills.  Grande NW swell has grown and honed its parameters but refuses a direct strike upon our shores.  Very high tide slowing momentum down but the forces are out there and will eventually be exposed. 

 

CHANNEL:  Steeped in high tide and overflowing it has drawn the shortboard ripper faction.  What is found lacks true juice with too much water and unaligned bars.  Smooth presentations with E wind grooming but needs less liquid to really formulate a plan.  Mid-lengths and longboards can still ferret out a session of waist high peelers.  Afternoon activities might be worth a look and see.

 

PATCH: Some goin' east, some goin' west.  Some step aside to try their best.  Some livin' big, but most livin' small.  They just can't even find no food at all.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"All great changes are proceeded by chaos." - Deepak Chopra

 

A call from the depths brings many to the edge of the world as NW mega swell formulates and fills in throughout the day.  Full sun and E winds keep it smooth on the surface and chilled in the air with early temps tickling the 30s and now up to 47F.  Resounding activity with potency to spare on tap over the next few days.  Newfound parameters may be set or exceeded as fall abundance is freely dispensed. 

 

CHANNEL:  Ripe with potential and initial possibilities upon tides verging on too high.  Settling in to an outgoing flow and lower levels of a manageable range.  Wider swaths of watery movements can be expected and collected with residual sandbars finding new life expectancy.  Currently not yet booming or banging except up against the seawall, but breakers with consistency roll through with size finding many waists. 

 

PATCH: Exceeding expectations with no mobilization from the S.  NW swell overflowing the outer reef upon higher tides and letting some of the energy in and out.  Local barnacles enjoy the prismatic views and partake in miscellaneous rides most yielding the right of way.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Don't write what you think people want to read.  Find your voice and write about what's in your heart." - Quentin Tarantino

 

Blazing sunshine reaching across the crystal clear blue sky while birds and frogs hum along kick starts today's cycle.  Post holiday routines setting in with a calm and sigh of relief.  Holding hot coffee trying to keep white fingers at bay hoping the sea has once again returned to familiar patterns.  Cold air bites back as we make our way to the end of the earth anticipating our first step into liquid.

 

CHANNEL:  A cold 45 outside and parking is plenty making room for long logs.  Left over storm motion in the ocean giving mixed signals.  Fading WNW swell showing this morning though soon fading as the afternoon rolls in.  Ruffly on the sets as waves are near high and ride-able in the center of the channel.  Fun rides all the way to the finish line with out going tide making the walk back to the start delightful.

 

PATCH: You can't make mountains out of mole hills.  Though you can make mountains out of sand.  Don't forget to decorate with your favorite crystal and recharge with positivity.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The more you sit and wait, the more you have to do." - Toby

 

The streets are slick with yesterday's rain as well as debris from the night storm yet bright sunshine brings us light once more. The days of gray skies have passed and we are given a gift today. The storm has passed but the sea water is still coming in frantically. Tons of movement in the water but not ideal conditions.

 

CHANNEL: Will it be worth the paddle out? Water is rushing in with the power of what is left over from yesterday's storm. Waves to ride, but breaking almost on top of one another. Be careful and know your limits. Definitely surfable at the moment but a little sloppy / choppy.

 

PATCH: Heavy happenings but only 3 there to witness.  Not the safest of conditions, but a beautiful day. Waist high + but stormy and fast moving. Better off waiting for something calmer if you seek serenity.
