In the great words of the famous French dictator, "A throne is only a bench covered with velvet, and a surfboard is merely foam covered in fiberglass." In accordance with the coronation of a King, dictator, president, what have you, there is the occasion for horses to be admitted as guests of honor...in this case, a jackass may be seen looking for a seat at my table today. The surf is glistening like the fresh dew on a conquered enemy after a long night of battle...small swells of marching little oscillating soldiers meander through the ocean towards our shores, cascading brilliance as they fall, slain by the dawn dwelling mammals covered in repurposed petroleum, smiles upon there faces as we bury the souls of the waves in our memories along the littoral zone. It is calm here today, bustling in the town is a hum like the bees or Napoleon's colon before battle, the ocean surface is glassy and the sky is clear, and the god's breath is quiet and calm. Grab a parasol and some Sartre, lay upon the golden shores, dine upon lovely food and embrace your primordial mother in the swells of the Ocean, neglect your Oedipal complex and basque in the glory of the tides of life.

CHANNEL: super glassy little reelers, with only 4 or 5 surfers on it, grab a log and enjoy the knee to waist high grinders breaking here and there.

PATCH: small little glassy peelers, marching through here and there, only two SUPers on it and one surfer, having a tea party on the inside rights. Size BTW knee to thigh.

Just a reminder to pack your trash!!!
PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. Respect the Beach.
