Daily Surf Report - 12/24/2013


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
“A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer." - Bruce Lee

Good morning and Happy Holidays to all of you mammals of the brine! It's yet another glorious morning here at the beach. the sun is up in it's winter, low-slung position smiling that gold tooth display as the temperature is sliding in at a chilly 45 degrees. There is vaguely a little bump left in the water today but looks to be quite the effort to get anything going... though, as surfing legend Larry Bertlemann has said, "Anything is possible."

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday for Christmas day but will re-open Thursday morning at our usual time of 10AM

CHANNEL:  That draining lagoon is making it so ugly right now that it could give aspirin a headache. Though a little waist high roller comes through here-and-there, one must really be aware of the outgoing tide to position correctly for a clean wave and take-off. About five (5) on longboards out there now doing more paddling than surfing. Maybe later with the tide change something a bit more positive will happen here.
PATCH: Super clean and glassy at just below waist high BUT not enough push today to make it a real barn burner. What waves that do make it past the hole are breaking way inside over the middle of the Patch and we all know that those rocks just under the surface want to play the Grinch to your Christmas wishes. We do offer ding repair... just sayin'.
Four (4) there now on longboards and janitorial equipment playing "Dodge the rocks."
Respect the Beach.
