“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails." - William Arthur Ward
Good morning everyone! It's a beautiful day here at the beach on this fine, crisp autumn morning! The skies are clear, the birds are singing in the key of Sarah Vaughan and there is even a bit of surf to be glided upon. The temperature is a Northern California fall 52 degrees, though it'll warm up a bit later today. Come and enjoy the golden goodness that is the ocean.
It is sad for me to report the loss of a huge surfing influence on myself as well as countless others. Montgomery "Buttons" Kaluhiokalani (March 30, 1959 - November 2, 2013) has passed away due to complications of lung cancer. Aloha and Mahalo, bruddah Buttons.
CHANNEL: A real mixed bag this morning but showing more promise than an NBA blue chipper at the first day of practice. Waist high rollers on the middle bar and even on the Mali-Bo bar with a kiss of an off-shore and somewhat glassy to boot. Go left, go right, go however you want to go just slap on the neoprene and GO NOW before the tide screws the pooch. Several out there now doing the Channel Cha-Cha.
PATCH: Big tide is keeping the Patch under water for the most part. Granted, earlier there was a bit of a bump in it's rump but now it's trying but not really delivering...except waaaaaaay inside. With the tide change you know this place will somewhat pop! No one there as I write this.
PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT.
Respect the Beach.
