Daily Surf Report - 12/31/2013


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:
“Minds are like parachutes...they only function when open." - Rick DaPrado

Good morning and a happy New Years Eve to all of you gnarly kids of the brine! It's another bee-u-tee-ful day here at the beach with a kiss of an off-shore breeze and the sun slung low on the horizon battling the overcast skies for domination. This is making that temperature creep in at a cool-ish 46 degrees. There is still some undulating activity in the liquid as I write this but there is also a higher-than-a-Georgia-pine tide coming in right about now (read tides at bottom of this blog). Use your better judgment when navigating your way in and out of the water with the boat ramp and/or sea wall and be kind to your fellow peeps.

CHANNEL:  Again, we have a decent bit of swell left in the water at waist + size as that middle bar and yes, the Mali-Bo bar are peeling like bananas this 'morn. I don't know how long this will continue considering the usual variables of tide and wind, but now is probably better than later as the out-going tide will be sucking out harder than a Capp Street Ho. A plethora of hydrodynamic equipment is there now.

PATCH: Too much water like too much beer to a frat boy. Pukey and not much else. However, later, gator is when this spot will present the purveyor's of the logs with some glide-able goodness. Empty of humanoids as I write this.

Respect the Beach.
