Good morning creatures of the brine and welcome to another "Hump day." The conditions today.... well, second verse, same as the first but a little bit louder and a little bit worse. Pretty much identical to yesterdays conditions- Over cast with slight bit of fog, no wind to speak of, temp coming in at about 57 degrees but the fog will burn off and things will heat up. Ironically, later in the afternoon yesterday the swell did pick up a smidgen. By evening it was really sunny, slight side wind and waist-to-occasional-just-under chest high peelers (Under chest: Channel. Waist: Patch). Perhaps this could happen again today? Stay tuned.
CHANNEL: This low tide is killing any possibility of a wave to ride. The sand bars are exposed Like Nixon at Watergate (look it up, kids. It's good to know your history). The swell is near non-existent right now, though it's glassy it just isn't classy. However, later today with the tide change it could get snappy and then you can get jiggy with it! Not a soul here as I write this....shocker!
PATCH: The Patch. A fickle spot indeed. One day it can be the ultimate in gliding elegance and then the next day it can flatten right out only to frustrate and cause one to curse a blue streak. Unfortunately, this morning it's the latter. Though last night there were plenty of waist high gems to hang five over on and only three (3) of us in the water enjoying it.... maybe tonight we will see a repeat performance? One can only hope and wait. Russ and Frank, the Dawn Patrols version of "Bert & Ernie" are counting to ten and learning their ABC's on custodial equipment as I write this as there is not much in waves to be cleaned this 'morn.
