Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir

 

Clear blue sky with lemon yellow sun and arctic wind chill.   Temps starting the day at 43 and not forecasted to break 50.  Wind whipping by and freezing bones of those who walk to check.  Vapor trails ending spoken sentences while digging hands deeper in pockets searching for warmth.  As we honor our Forefather's today we ponder how they ever survived without Patagonia base-layers and car heaters.

 

CHANNEL:  Solid NW wind swell whipping through the Channel and Sea Drift side.  Off shore wind combating in-coming waves and blowing blinding spray out the back.  Knee size on sets and five fishermen out.  Watch for fishing lines while making your way out for prime position. 

 

PATCH:  If you can read between the lines and understand the meaning of how it makes you feel on the inside, all will be answered and revealed.  Look to your knees for guidance.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to loose sight of the shore." - Andre Gide

 

Fluffy white puffs floating skyward with beaming yellow orange.  Early morning traffic moving in scoring prime parking spaces while keeping fingers crossed the wind will keep at bay.  A chill 48 with breezy gusts running through hair and stinging eyes.  Greetings of morning sun salutations and positive vibes over coffee while changing into superhero suits hoping to be the one to bring home the gold.  As they say, the early bird catches the worm and the second mouse gets the cheese.

 

CHANNEL:  Moderate NW off-shore wind filling the open void as the NW swell has yet to make impact.  Ankle peelers coming through the Channel proper with a white spray finish.  Sea Drift side clocking in about knee with a ruffly texture.  Two paddle boarders currently out trying to find the sweet spot.

 

PATCH:  Micro-versions of wave like formations and textured surface with wind protection for now.  Keep focus and visualize the outcome.  Remember, you've trained for this moment.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If we are unduly absorbed in improving our lives we may forget altogether to live them." - Alan Watts

 

Blessings and salutations from above as the journey of another day begins.  Warmer at 42F and weak NE winds to initiate some warmth.  Layer early and reveal later.  New-ish WNW swell combo stimulating the juices and allowing for slides which have be relatively scarce in recent days.  A slight uptick is enough to activate ocean instincts and breakers are being enjoyed once again. 

 

CHANNEL:  Moderated advancing tides joined by light offshore breezes have rollers sparkling brightly in the morning sun.  Generally concentrated in the deeper Channel arena, a peak that must be shared as options remain thin for now.  The Seadrift enclave has enough water and likes the swell direction just fine if you are up for the excursion.  Size still yearning for thigh high or better but enough to get longboards moving in the right direction and a beautiful day for February. 

 

PATCH:  No mirage, your eyes do not deceive.  A breaking wave has been observed and ridden in the Patch.  Soft, sweet and seemingly absorbed in the moment.  Knee-cappers or better.  No stems or twigs to bind.  Bring the biggest board you own and hopefully it is over 9' long.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If you fell down yesterday, stand up today." - H. G. Wells

 

We enter the year of the Dog with high hopes and expectations. The day begins with more natural beauty than actual surf.  Finally frosty with a shimmering crystal blanket on flat surfaces.  Clear and sunny with current temp 39F and only slight E winds for warmth.  A budding and building NW windswell is all that provides the emphasis for slides and stoke seekers.  Inner mantras say push forth and get wet as the sea washes all troubles away and lets you begin anew.

 

CHANNEL:  Early chasers using the incoming tide for extra impetus to realize rides.  Clean and smooth though lacking the real juice we jones for.  Sedated rather than elated with few options unless you ride the really big logs.  Breathtaking surroundings lend a positive aspect to the morning activities.

 

PATCH:  I'll send the softest waves with joy, and music sweet by breezes fanned.  For the rough sea of life, my boy, hath depths you cannot understand.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"No need to hurry.  No need to sparkle.  No need to be anybody but oneself." - Virginia Woolf

 

Cool and clear and brisk in the moment.  Under a veil of nothing but sunshine and light E winds we take measure of what lays ahead.  Those seeking respite from the maddening world find themselves at the ocean's edge contemplating the next steps.  Temp is 42F with the sea level and sheen-ed from above.  What gentle swells are in play are at present mostly under wraps with just hints and whispers of their existence. 

 

CHANNEL:  Smoothed out with harsh winds and words lacking.  Filling tide looks to be overwhelming the energy present and keeping it perpetually soft and relatively unbroken.  Brilliantly lit and golden.  Perfect for a dip and swim.  Surf has potential based solely on buoy readings but the translation currently is more sit and wait than slide and ride.  Stay tuned for the outgoing tide to turn things around and invigorate the flow. 

 

PATCH:  Small and steep S swell not accessible to our fair coastline.  The breakers that are observed may well reach ankle destinations but that is not the destiny hoped for today.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world." - Charles Dickens

 

Cold crisp wild blue yonder ushering in blazing yellow.  Windy cold at 45 degrees as trees groan and release foliage to the ground.  Popping cough drops like candy and refilling cups of hot tea before heading out to start the days cycle.  Clad in winter armor with hand-warmers as secret weapons, walking one step in front of the other.  Thinking warm thoughts to ease the wind and cold, remembering it's mind over matter.

 

CHANNEL:  Three words; mumbled, jumbled and messy.  WNW swell trying to move in, though has no chance against the off shore howling wind.  White-capped as far as the eye can see with spray blowing off the oceans surface.  No visible waves forming in the Channel or Sea Drift side due to high winds and lack of swell energy.  Currently no one out.

 

PATCH:  Windblown / windblon / adjective - carried or driven by the wind; "windblown sand." Exposed to or affected by the wind "the coastline is rugged and windblown."

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Butterflies and zebras And moonbeams and fairy tales That's all she ever thinks about Riding with the wind." - Jimmy Hendrix

 

A cold 45 chill with a breezy bite greets the sun to begin the day.  Morning commuters playing frogger with daredevil skunks as deer cheer and watch from the sidelines.  Gaggles of geese debating on direction overhead with much chatter.  The beginning of the week is upon us and many decisions and agendas are already set in stone.  Though sometimes, the best adventures are the one's we don't plan for.

 

CHANNEL:  NW wind swell making it's presence known this morning.  Tiny lumps rolling through in the shin high zone with white water spray off the back.  More fishing poles then water craft out this morning hoping for their daily catch.  Not too much hope for better conditions once tide recedes.

 

PATCH:  By squinting hard enough, maybe just maybe, a hint of line appears.  Looking at the water crossed eyed at high tide, is hard to do.  Play the waiting game, I know it's hard, though it may just pay off.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Remember, success is a journey not a destination.  Have faith in your ability.  You will do just fine." - Bruce Lee

 

Patchy clouds sprinkled in with blue sky and yellow sun.  Cooler temps this morning as 41 starts us off and topping out at 55 this afternoon.  Looks like Summer has come and gone for now.  Quiet noise with a light breeze and chirping birds of all feathers gather for breakfast.  Bring a jacket and dress in layers as you make your way to the waters edge.  Bundle up for the day and set your sights on nature.

 

CHANNEL:  NW swell easing way back with the tide.  Super small, ankle over toe rolling in over the Groin as 4 water crafts float for position.  Calm water flowing in and out of the Channel, creating tranquil and peaceful feelings.  Take a deep breath, pause for a moment and watch the seals swim.

 

PATCH:  It's a great day to catch up on the exciting Olympic Curling matches from yesterday.  Take a step further and enjoy the biathlon Cross Country skiing while sipping on coffee and fueling up on crispy, buttery pancakes.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Don't be pushed by your problems.  Be led by your dreams." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Chill neck tickles from NE breezes that provide warmth and seek to prime surf.  52F and clear skies signal another beautiful February day.  Combining forces are NW windswell typical of spring and redeeming S swell whose angle is now more consequential.   Tide has peaked earlier and now slowly depletes.  A bit less water not unwelcome today as stunted offerings performing better under less weight. 

 

CHANNEL:  Spray tops from offshore winds though most breakers pushed over to Seadrift or beyond.  Petite peaks popping along with just enough shape to lure those looking.  Sitting in wait on the Channel bar sets, you may be duly rewarded with a waist high roller after a rather long layover period.

 

PATCH:  Currently the territory of flat water pursuits and paddleboard purists.  Only a short inside wave to keep the mind and body occupied while the heart yearns to attend the outside depths.  Less water may change this tune with the S swell on par to yield opportunities for all as it did yesterday.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can." - Nikos Kazantzakis

 

Sufficient tide now dropping, dropping and already a lessening can be observed and felt.  The devout share optimism paired with greater hope and rather than look, they suit up.  Skies fully invested with sun and no winds to tousle.  Temp at 48F and on the rise.  There is beauty at every turn even as the surf remains minimal.  Your true measure is shown by what you do in less than adequate circumstances.

 

CHANNEL:  Foamie frenzy on the inner bar regions secluded behind the Groin Wall.  Abbreviated rides of a condensed height.  Fun is where you find it and and how you make it today.

 

PATCH:  Steep steep S swell likely missing on its journey up the coast.  French toast, pancakes or crepes are the options with each one thinner and less fulfilling than the other.  Dig in and feast.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected." - Robert Frost

 

Muted morning vibes with many content to sit peacefully and watch the day unfold.  All chakras are open for receipt of swirling energy. Wisps of early fog vanished with the risen sun.  Though we start at 47F there are E winds pushing warm air our way.  A lessening of the NW swell means find it and get on it while the time and tides allow.

 

CHANNEL:  High bars and lowering tide making for a churned region of activity.  NW wind swell fading out and laying tracks for another pulse.  Knee knockers + when all factors find proper alignment.  The edges have a more even outlook though size drops down a notch.

 

PATCH:  Bathed in sun and flush with open spaces.  Less swell than even allocated in the Channel means bigger boards are better.  The infrequent apparition visiting shows diminutive amounts of calf high concoctions.  Ride from your knees or better yet belly and size relevancy grows accordingly.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." - John F. Kennedy

 

Morning turkey commuters crossing the road leaving cows wondering why?  Blinding sunshine leading the way to open foggy valleys on twisting roads.  A warm 57 with winds blowing leaves and branches in streets.  Open parking and a sense of calm once the ocean can be heard from afar.  Take a deep breath, a long pause and enjoy the moment.

 

CHANNEL:  NW wind swell making its way through and over the Channel.  Slow and crumbly on the sets in the knee range as water sprays backwards from the wind.  Low in energy and slow to form, staying in position is key to score.  Currently two paddling to stay in the sweet spot.

 

PATCH:  Protected lines rolling in left and right.  Slow rolling formations lacking energy to fully perform to high standards.  Some are standing, some are laying down and all are trying to find the one to shore.

"Life has no limitations, except the ones you make." - Les Brown

 

Bird cluster singing troupes with wood peckers feeling the base.  Bright yellow and orange beams through trees and amazing blue hues above.  Contemplating who was better, Pink and Justin, Peter and Morgan or Martha and Jack while deciding whether or not to call in "sick" for surf.  Try asking Alexa for the answer, you never know who might answer.

 

CHANNEL:  Already 55 and gorgeous as the new WNW swell is slow coming around.  One peak in the Channel center hitting right and left in the thigh range.  4 crew members out, calling plays and formations.  Team work makes the dream work as sleds in different size win the prize. 

 

PATCH:  Stand up teams in full force and in prime position, while 5 are laying low on the inside setting up for the wrap around energy to come.  Slow and steady wins the race no matter if you decide to journey right or left.  As the tide changes, the playing field widens and all can play this afternoon.

Super Sunday settling in with clearing skies and already 54F.  More inland heat expected as Phil's predictions refuted by real scientists.  Gentle W gradients and offshore winds eliciting silky smooth surfaces pushing minor-league ripples.  A bit more tide fills in throughout the day with plausible pulses before the kickoff.  The wise seeker plans with early activity and finds the couch by 4pm. 

 

CHANNEL:  Fully drained and now maintained at a level adequate for action.  The ingredient in question remains elusive and in short supply.  Sprinkled with sun from above while chilled out below the sandbars are firmly situated and looking for impulses.  More water from the turning tide may help flip the switch up to ON but size will remain a function of the relative energies and breakers can only reach knee high in size.

 

PATCH:  Paddler brigade of all manner launching from the ramp and heading North towards plateaued parts.  Fishing canoes, kayaks, SUPs and others join forces to fulfill their fantasies.  The extra propulsion seems needed and warranted early as low waters are leaving this area languishing and flat.  A very small and steep Southern hemi pulse may not have enough to penetrate the defensive front today.  This play is currently under review.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"When you're in the moment, I just stress staying in the moment, preparing in the moment, doing anything you can right at this moment.  The rest takes care of itself." - Nick Foles

 

Sunshiny crystal clear blue and blazing beams of happiness stretching it's warmth in our hearts and souls.  It's the feeling of Summer in February as temps are already 55 degrees and not a lick of wind in sight.  Still and calm before the storm of motors searching for spots to suit up in search of stoke.  The journey to the edge of the earth is worth the effort and part of the fun.  Choose to be adventurous and experience Mother Nature at her finest.

 

CHANNEL:  Sunshine sparkling off the oceans surface as tiny ripples charge through.  Shin high as the NW swell is feeling a little chill today.  Forget how it could be or how great it was two weeks ago, as it's one of those days where it's fun to get wet and enjoy the warmth of the sun and beauty of the beach.

 

PATCH:  Here comes the sun (doo dooo dooo doo) Here comes the sun, and I say, It's alright. Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces.  Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here.  Here comes the sun (doo dooo dooo doo) Here comes the sun, and I say, It's alright.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The point of life is happiness." - Dalai Lama

 

Gophers and groundhogs rejoice and celebrate their one day of revelry.  Other mammals bask in the cool temps with warming sun and survey the surroundings.  Cleared skies and 46F with nothing standing in the way of a day full of anything imaginable.  Ocean energy on the wane and subsequent breakers of a lesser value.  Incoming tide lends the lightest of helping hands and while the options are few and far between they do exist.

 

CHANNEL:  Jibbers and jabbers with the Friday crew setting eyes on the selections and finding themselves underwhelmed.  Glistening and golden as the sun has risen and lights the area with no exceptions.  NW windswell is what remains and fuels the stoke search today.  Knee crackers are obtainable and likely the expected norm. 

 

PATCH:  Low tide ripples as a function of no swell and lack of water.  SUP excursions and fishing kayaks in evidence and 3 hour tours are currently underway.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly." - Langston Hughes

 

Serene settings and a clear surround with a day that starts all too quiet.  Moonlight lets the super early birds feast and frolic while taking the gamble on the lower tide.  Crystals don't get much more clean or recharged so energy buzzing off the spectrum.  Pedestrian swells keeping it small and manageable.  Winds are lightly E and temp 48F.  Freedom to roam and play as you so desire. 

 

CHANNEL:  Free range options and a wide open landscape upon which to actuate.  Incoming tide sets its sights on levels rarely reached and will eventually make admission eventful.  For now we experience the gentle push and extra propulsion to activate a Mali-Bo right breaking off the Groin pole.  The deeper Channel bar elicits a wide left that is soft and supple.  Faded NW swells are your relevant catalysts.

 

PATCH:  A SW swell with vigor and measure of gravity may well show more acumen within higher waters.  In the present, a small right of patella intersection is revealed and UN-ridden.  Vanishing sands will soon be the norm as the tide grows to its peak.  A general smooth surface that may yet hold a bounty of stoke.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles." - Washington Irving

 

Sharp blue and golden hues from morning sun blesses this Tuesday morning.  Hustle and bustle delivery trucks coming and going as school buses make their daily pick ups.  Preparations are in full effect in anticipation for the Super Blue Blood Moon rising early tomorrow morning.  Crystal cleaning and arranging for the special recharge lunar event that happens every 150 years.  Check the time tables for optimum viewing.

 

CHANNEL: A chilly 52 and open parking as far as the eye can see.  High water levels up the boat ramp make for a tricky approach.  A fresh WNW swell reading coming in, though hard to tell with so much water.  Nothing materializing in the channel proper, though shin size on the Sea Drift side.  As tide turns this afternoon, shape and size should build.  Practice your waiting and patience skills for now.

 

PATCH:  Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.  Resting sea gulls making the most out of the floating tree limb rafts.  Filled pockets of seashells and rocks in hopes of making formations and creations will have to wait until this afternoon when there is beach to be had.
