Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Patience and fortitude conquer all things." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Abated winds and baited breath as we stare into the now with eyes on the future.  A calmness prevails in the early hours as tides hit below low and steadily climb back.  Ruminations and calculations to determine ultimate access and achieve total consciousness.  The S swell angle is steep and deep while the NW windswell fades as they do.  Seek deeper waters or extra slumber for the time is not now but coming. 


CHANNEL:  Fade across to reach depths desired and relocate towards Seadrift or beyond.  Here are lefts wielding waist high rides that tantalize and intrigue.  In the Channel and on the Groin we find more sand than salt and the breakers that spin through are short lived and supremely shallow. 


PATCH:  Great expanses of slab and pillar are the key focal points this morning.  Navigational skills are required for both entry and exit as surprises which once lurked deep are now exposed.  Those of a paddled tribunal are in and among the meeting rocks in search of deepened meanings and the stray wave to ride.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you're proud to live." - Anne Sweeney

 

Nearly rain as we have drizzle fo shizzle and more than damp discoveries.  Buffeted by stiff S winds the early invitation is less than appealing presently.  As a car disgorges its occupants one can plainly see the faces of joy and realize that stoke comes in many forms and flavors.  To be out in the wild with nary a care and boards and suits on this dreary morning is delight in its purest form.  Still have a hefty NW windswell determined to unload and a real SW swell lingering.  As tides refill, and if the winds die down then we may really have something on our hands.  For now, most concern themselves with hoods up and warm beverages. 


CHANNEL:  Depleted of water but not winds as they whip a mighty frothy brew.  Not enough of one and too much of another never is a good mix.  The determined enter without caution while others watch in awe.    


PATCH:  Needing a settled demeanor in order to take advantage of the long period swell - now is not the time or place.  Negative tides and positive winds need to reverse their order and hopefully they will.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why." - Kurt Vonnegut

 

It may appear a gloom, for some are fully consumed but there is bloom about so escape from your recovery room. A range of doers and snoozers leaving a healthy pot of yay's and hold-on's but out here there are smiles galore as most everyone has already left the water and gotten their awakening for the moment...or rather they be warming their body before soothing their souls. Tangos of a WNW swell and enduring SSW swell provides a jolly ole' time showing all that warm weather is never needed to play. Light movement in the air and a drift of mist coming to leave and stay.


CHANNEL:  O say can you see that? The early birds have taken their share and will be gone like the wind by the time most of yee open them crusted, sleep-filled eyes. But fear not for there is plenty to go around; getcher fillings before she's full of giving. Now and later, let not the weather in the air deter you, sometimes the dark-days are the ones full of the most gifts.


PATCH: Rumble a' tumblin' crumbling. Disjointed as a finger detached from it's connecting ligaments. Shadows to rolling molars like your own taken over by the damp fog. Humblin' jumbling garble. She seems to be confused...give her a minute to drink her coffee and shake off the morning vibes.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Penetrating so many secrets we cease to believe in the unknowable. But there is sits nevertheless, calmly licking it's chops." - H.L Mencken

 

A blanket of thick fog encompasses us with a good morning hug, bringing out the tea, coffee and sweaters whilst the faint filament of gold slices through the horizon promising us that nothing is broken beyond repair. Nearly half packed spots combined with weather is but a trick of the mind for the water is full and people are stoked. This hug will not last for long with promises of a lift off and middle-joy temps. Bitty SW swell still on the up-and-coming and is in a meeting with our NW winds that are pushing our way. This is not the meeting of a lifetime but the two are giving some of us a jolly good time. Cancel the fumes, exalt the opportunities, see the unknown...it's time to wake up.


CHANNEL:  Only here is it here and around here. Surfers galore mixing with the bathing birds and the sets roll through while some goodies are purchased with the currency of love, respect and bliss. Smooth for now.


PATCH: Blanketed bliss with a benevolently cheerful state of mind. By golly is it empty - not enough influx and out-flux to pull away from what is not here. Later times may bring later measures but for now the soul is in slumber... the unknown is not grasped but her awakening may bring some conversational flow.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The road to success is not a path you find, but a trail you blaze." - Robert Breault

 

Conceptualized realizations happening in and among a heavy fog.  Reality and fantasy blend and morph in real time and all results feel positive.  Cool and calm this Monday morning with no breath of air and temp of 50F.  The tide pushes forth and a small merger of NW windswell and background S yield returns that satisfy.  


CHANNEL:  Either real or imagined the left hander given is silky smooth and pitch perfect.  Incoming tide lining up the Mali-Bo reforms and breakers approximating waist high + offer decent distances to travel to unknown destinations. 


PATCH: A SUP brigade with mitosis leanings occupies initially and now migrates south.  Not too sassy but very glassy and a hint of new-ish S swell appears from the mist at random times.  The tides are encouraging and sympathetic to the cause and should only help to enhance the experience.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Magical realism is defined as what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe." - Gabriel Garcia

 

Calm glass starting to pass and a quiet and collected group of wanderers wading around in the shallows. I'm seeing minimal texture on the surface with a warming water temperature and warming hearts as the tide is trying to help us out as much as possible. For the intermediate rider take off late and try and milk the speed out of it because this cow is a kicker and the sheep may be out to pasture later today. Midday lows most likely will add mild confusion.


CHANNEL:  Waves all the way on the sand and hiding out of view; there are a few randoms racking up some sitting time with some little thigh cramping sections for the participants knowing where to find them.


PATCH: "Don't worry man, my Dads a Tv repair man. He's got a killer set of tools! I can fix it!" Tidal forces working in our favor and some chill micro-climates to be had and vibe-d over. Take your turn and enjoy the mini magic.

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

A deviation on the norm as we delve into deeper meanings.  Early dense fog and black crows as a harbinger of joy or doom? Parking full of the overnight sliders that worked it til dark and attempt to resume the stoke.  Visuals are hazy but the buoys, crystals and tea leaves tell the tale.  A measured NW windswell with mini background S filling in the cracks.  ESE light winds and slight texture on the water.  53F with expectations for more after the sun burns through. 


CHANNEL:  Rise and shine and shake out the dripping suit.  Mali-BoBo has early roll call for inside rights that find a path to grind along the shallows and reel through the inner Channel.  Favorable and incoming tides are best and just ended so options become limited though not completely scarce.   Outside Channel bar is the next area to explore but as the tides drop so may the selection.  Early evening comeback resumes the required push.


PATCH: Look ahead
But don't mix it up
Baby look ahead
To better days and better ways

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." - Roald Dahl
 

Wake and wobble into the day.  Find sure footing and set off on the right path.  If guidance is needed consult the crystals or ask a stranger as they are likely in the know.  Celebrate the sun as it rises and shines early and often.  Peace and quiet you could hear a board drop and rail shatter.  Pay no mind to any distractions and head west to the water's edge.  Center yourself.  Deep breaths.  Notice breakers in the corner of your eye.  Dive in and paddle out.  49F, no winds, small NW swell and even smaller SW.  Log it people.


CHANNEL:  Early morning highs if you crack it before the sun fully materializes.  Plenty of water now as lunchtime feels the drain pain lows.  Just enough dynamic motion to get the juices flowing.  Languishing lefts off the deeper Channel bar that push and chug along at an under waist high stature.  A slight bend in the offering towards Mali-Bo will soon shut down as the tide switches towards low. 


PATCH:  Residuals.  Slappers, knee cappers but not enough to encourage ridge clappers as very little stirs the pot this morning.  Beautifully engaged with sunshine and peaceful tidings.  UN-encumbered by significant swell actions.  NovatoDave don't care - he goes with a stoke we all wish we had.  Knee high at best.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." - John Wooden
 

Radiant gradients prevail as the sun creeps over the hills and illuminates the day.  Tranquility washes over us as first visages come into focus.  A day for internal exploration and possible water excursions.  Only a mid period NW windswell and a germinal SW swell to whet our appetites.  The clarity above can only lead to guidance below as the sun shines brightly and the temps are 48F.  No winds to confound or cloud judgement yet the tides recede moment to moment. 


CHANNEL:  As the water levels deplete so do the options as swells of consequence do not currently infiltrate.  A seemingly empty lineup may speak volumes to those short sighted sliders.  The immediate option may not be directly in front of your face but is out there if the fire inside truly burns hot. 


PATCH:  If the SW swell matures and proliferates here is where it will best be felt.  For now the tide drains and the energy dissipates - save for a lone paddle-boarder who remains young at heart.  Loggers may have selections here as the day progresses but the even keel appearance holds no excitement currently.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Ripping from your grip all those toys in the world / That bring you no joy. / Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly / And wants to rip to shreds / All your erroneous notions of truth." - Hafiz
 

The pink luminescent fog drifts from the ocean, caressing the tree tops to tell us they are leaving the sky behind for a bit; meanwhile, the sun shines through the canopy, illuminating the undergrowth so rarely nourished during these spring mornings. It is a beginning that brings serenity to our hearts, tranquil smiles radiating from our souls and light into every action and interaction. Out in this coastal town, the kayaks are out, the few surfers come and go relishing in the glossy morning; the tide may be out but on this kind of day it matters not. There are words adrift of NW winds pushing through but for now it seems our Bo-natural cover is keeping it at bay. As for a swell, a mid-period WNW swell shall come through at it's maximum this time around, giving us contentment for a spring day.


CHANNEL:  Short rides and solitude. A time to reflect, realign and rejoice. Forget not, as we are one with this Earth and this Ocean - take a moment to remember that the percentage of water in our body is still less than that of the ultimate Mother and just as we use our water supplies and replenish, so must she. Patience.


PATCH:  Relish in the unknown. This morning finds our water drained and the waves away. There seems to be a lull here as the week reaches its middle but never forget to scan the shadows and read the energy for as tides come in some may miss what exists.

Daily Surf Report - 5/16/2017

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"If you went back and fixed all the mistakes you've made, you erase yourself." - Louis C.K.
 

The sun on our faces, the salty breeze lingering in the air and the fragmented water surfaces cause us mere high fly, human animals to take a deep breathe snap a picture or two do a jiggle and a stretch and converse with ourselves. The water is out and will continue to push away, in a retreat asking us to come no farther for fear that we will hurt her even more than we have; but nevertheless, she shall return as the naive lover she appears to be. Forget not, she is keeping tabs and one day will come back to bite as promised. For now, our mother will pack us a lunch box full of current wind, WNW arriving windswell, sunshine and uneven water but as the ultimate magician, she might just decide to switch it up as the day continues.


CHANNEL:  A spectacle to see here. Our dearest friend shows off the way she works through eye-appeasing tidal movement and current fluxes. She's in the mood to show off this morning for the early risers, but it is a look only - do not touch - morning as she provides no love for those who dabble on her surfaces for now....all reason is true, falsehood does not exist in her dictionary.


PATCH:  The younger sisters of the Devil's Teeth (those massive rock faces only 20 miles away) reside here this morning - a slight history lesson of the Bay Area may do one well. Challenge, learn, transcend. Become one. The scales are shown today and small breaks onto open face scars continue to scale back as the morning continues. Depending on your flexibility, this is never a sight for sore eyes and ocean therapy awaits - some are just better sessions than others....but as long as you show respect and understand it as a gift you will never walk away with nothing.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Mighty things from small beginnings grow." - John Dryden
 

As we greet the new week we must contend and remain content with what the morning offers.  The day above is full of clarity and blue beauty while below the waters recede and degenerate before our eyes.  Another cycle of negative morning tides has early risers dismayed by the displays.  With only a stout NW windswell as our primary pump and a reduced playing field, the opportunities are limited but not without merit. 


CHANNEL:  Again one must drift and shift their sight and self in order to find the nourishment to exist.  Seeking the deeper waters within the Channel and along the Seadrift corridor will yield some of what you are looking for, but not all.  The tide return will not resolve itself until early afternoon so get what you can when you can.  Please sir, I want some more.


PATCH:  Still draining but maintaining a flatter countenance than one would hope for.  Burnished bronze by the sun above and silky smooth with no winds.  Canoes, kayaks, SUPs and swimmers are more than welcome to partake.  With no S swell in the pot loggers are left wanting.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Most mothers are instinctive philosophers." - Harriet Beecher Stowe
 

Flaccid, placid and sedate morning.  A golden calm in the early hours as the winds do NOT blow and the sun shines brightly.  Chilled out waters down to 49F and air even below at 44.  Bundle up and imbibe warm beverages as you perform your ritual surf check and conjure energy to don the damp suit.  Honor your mother and polish your crystals.  Give thanks and praise for all you have and all your are now and will become.  Petition for swell as what we have currently does not make the heart race but palpitate gently.  Incoming tide should provide the delivery you are expecting.


CHANNEL:  Ignore for the moment and focus your gaze along the coast towards Seadrift to find salvation.  Sustenance exists but in meager portions and must but sought and fought for under current tidal decreases.  The extra effort is always worth it and is required in certain situations.  Thigh high breakers are available if you are willing to explore.


PATCH:  Leveled off and washed in golden sun.  Semi-occasionally interrupted by random rollers wandering aimlessly along in search of a landing port.  Knee high like a broken record.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"You have to try the impossible to achieve the possible." - Hermann Hesse
 

Moon vibes as the early tribe cracks the day open and tries to beat the tidal drain.  Unfortunately Mother Ocean wins the initial round as bottom contours become readily visible and expose all the deep sea secrets.  Options are limited and limitless all at the same time and in the present moment.  A jumbled alignment not so easy on the eyes.  For now the day does begin bright and beautiful if you look skywards and temps are in at 50F.  What swells that may play a part in the surfing fantasy of today will only make themselves visible later during the tide push back. 


CHANNEL:  Marshmallow puff with no extra fluff as mini spinners in the shallows swirl and curl around the fisherman's legs. Rippy and trippy as the tide siphons negatively and beyond.  We know the bars exist and are set.  There is a mild NW swell lurking.  Now we just need some water which may require a noon-time recheck and calibration. 


PATCH:  Motivation
It comes and goes
But the questions
They stay alive

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master." - Ernest Hemingway
 

The sun shines brightly and with full intention to remain present.  Another tranquil morning where being early to hit the surf gives no benefit.  Minus tides deplete the rides as missing water is a key component on most days.  Grab your mug and climb above to survey the coast and gain insight and wisdom.  As with all great comebacks there is a happy ending and the tide return may just be yours today.  No winds and 49F feels like a winning combination.


CHANNEL:  Micro grinders all along the inside Groin sandbar is a mind-surfers dream as the wave is hollow and holding form.  Unfortunately the height remains locked in at ankle high and water depth not much more.  A mid period NW windswell is in the offering under better suited tides.  Sitting in the Channel will allow for the occasional spirited breaker to find you along with shallow drawing boats that may come and go.  Try Wait. 


PATCH:  Less tide and even more slag exposed as we hit dead low.  Bathed in sunshine it finds paddlers on the prowl with flat-water cruising their ultimate reward.  An afternoon re-check under better water levels will be in order if you have all the free time in the world.  A very small S swell remnant is all you have to look forwards to.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"The cure for anything is saltwater: sweat, tears or the sea." - Isak Dinesen
 

Wisps of mist and dampened sensations to start the morning.  Easing back as the overcast skies move high above and levitate. Sunshine and sweet serenity surely are on the way. Diminished water levels not leveling off the stoke as the chosen few find purpose in the sea.  NW windswell plays a part in the apparitions while the tiniest of S swell sparks interest in other regions.  Winds are a non-factor yet a slight texture remains.  More water will be the cure as we all know and should abide by. 


CHANNEL:  Allow the drift and shift to occur and find yourself across the Channel and rapidly into Seadrift.  Deeper pockets in the sand allow for less to be more and the opportunistic slider may well luck into a right minded skid.  As the tide fills back it will allow for Groin bar explorations but for now not. 


PATCH:  A wide triangular swath of exposed rocks does not typically make for inviting surf opportunities.  Those in the water may not by your typical patron as they journey far out past uncovered stone in search of an elusive solution.  What may transpire in the later hours is an unknown commodity at this time.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Speak only if it improves upon the silence." - Mahatma Gandhi
 

Mellow Wednesdays here: snug coastal clouds, morning dew hanging, uneven water surfaces and humdrum weather forecasting. A shift in the weather, turning down low, preserving itself for what is yet to come into creation. We are reading shadows out here, feeling the energy and moving into dormancy; just like the human body following an endorphin high, the ultimate mother seems to have dissipated much of her good remedies on a single binge and is now finding herself in need of a resupply. Our middle sibling WNW swell creates a proposition to come and go and her sister carries in a stronger force of air from the WSW. The kids are out to play today, but this is not your typical family.


CHANNEL:  Slosh and posh. A blockage of the organs. A confusion of where we are. There are some shadows but it is up to your eyes to decipher what is what and who is who; meager yet always surprising. Join the jolly of urban models and yay-sayers this morning for ocean therapy is better than most all.


PATCH:  Not what it was nor what is could be but ever present and moving forward as we all are. The beginning of a formation of classic, half-pint patch rollers as the tide stretches its neck and embraces the upper shores once more; the chopped liver might be slow to digest however. All in the eye of the beholder and what is due for some others seem to drift off.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Reality is far stranger than anything else." - Timothy Stevens
 

I am awakened today by green - green hills, green hair, green cars - which, in turn, accentuates the stark blue sky and the effervescent ocean water...it is a day to dwell in not what is present but rather what may be and what our minds eye provides. I and we are warm both inside and out, leaving us with a secret of good hope for today; the onshore wind stirs the pot however, and the bleak NW windswell continues to leave us as does the diminished S swell. The smell of new beginnings are in the air, so let us not think of what has been but rather what might just tap us on the shoulder, say hello and bring a smile to our face.


CHANNEL:  The heart of the sun lies here this morning, bestowing our mere mortal human faces with beauty and warmth to last a lifetime. It's a dog galore out here, so mind the puppers as you join the lone traveler in the longest-of-longboarding sessions. May our mind wander but not to far for we never know what she has in store.


PATCH:  Here, far, wherever they are - the painter of the ultimate mother finally gets some alone time at last. Rollers to the ground, teeth only recently sharpened and a stir of the pot is what we see here today. May we holdeth our breath only yet for the water was out and we are waiting up to make sure she gets home...lettuce eat healthy, breathe the salt air and lick our chops at the unknown.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty." - John Ruskin
 

Some chills and only a few thrills with temps dipping to 49F and moderating SW winds.  Our previous week of winds has a large NW windswell roaming about as the steep S depletes its energy.  Sun-drenched skies should give rise to good tidings and eventual warmth.  For now those hitting the water are consoling themselves as what they are offered today does not compare to what was consumed last week.  Either way, the day and week can always start on a positive note if your outlook trends upwards.


CHANNEL:  Splish and splash but not in a mad dash as the tatters are torn in the lower tide conditions.  Unexceptional computations though bathed in sunlight as an aspect of beauty.  One can hope for less wind and more tide to flip the switch and smooth things out.  Protected Mali-Bo inside rights may be the best bet today at thigh high. 


PATCH:  Having to recalculate due to tide switch and swell drop.  Outsiders fail to flop and insiders are lacking water.  Middles are no man's land currently except as a way station to your next destination.  Recalculating.

Inspirational Quote of the Day:
"Hope is independent of the apparatus of logic." -Norman Cousins

Today is the day, and yes it is bright. The wind and cold from yesterday have seemed to calm down as the temperature is already at a lovely 59* Funky 2016 has passed, so, boards will be broken, borders changed, and lumps of coal handed out and accepted graciously. From the realest of idealist to the massive passive, there's a little something for everyone out there today and everyone is already on it.


CHANNEL:  Ups, downs and all around mediocrity. Looking glassy with mixed swell and mixed feelings. 10 man crew already rendering me speechless as none of the best waves are chosen. Incoming tide enhancing our situation and the time is nine... or will be nine soon. Weave around a few buoy-ish humans and you may find a little private waist high cranker for crankums.  


PATCH:  Mini movers all the way outside and all the way inside. Not necessarily connecting through at any point there are plenty of attempts from plenty of people. Enjoy a little mini wall that doesn't cost 14 billion to build. Ankle to knee + depending on your height.
