Daily Surf Report - 1/24/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.” - Henry Ward Beecher

Feeling it today.  Crystal powered, large an in charge WNW swell has arrived.  The Mavericks/Channel/Patch Showdown is in full swing with all competitors suiting up and frothing for their heats to begin.  This is not amateur stuff as only the best and bravest will defy death to achieve glory today in Bolinas.  Slightly hazy with sun on the way.  43F with offshore winds to keep it real.  Lots of water moving around and peaks spread out from here to Timbuktu!  Know your limits.  Find your limits.  Reach your limits.  Exceed your limits - but be careful about it.  The crystals can only serve to protect you if you are a true believer.  

CHANNEL:  Right out in front of the boat ramp and all the way across to Seadrift there is surf and waves to ride.  A bit mean and not to clean as Bolinas doesn't handle this size NW swell exceptionally well.  Find a peak and sit on it.  You will get rides today.  Size is ranging from waist to head and above depending on where you surf.  Tides are good today and swell will stay through the weekend like a welcome guest.  Peak is today with things calming down through Sunday.  Recommended Board of the Swell is anything you have that you like to ride.  About 20+ in the water spread out to keep the calamity to a minimum.

PATCH: Lumpy and bumpy but delivering waves none the less.  All kinds of peaks a popping from the graffiti wall all the way over to the Patch proper.  Plenty of surfers in the water and plenty of surfers on the way trying to determine the optimal time and peak to shred.  A bit overloaded due to swell size but should calm down and clean up over time.  Size is a range from waist up to shoulder.  Still sectioning but rideable and longboards will get a good ride today.  Tides remain respectable today.  About 12 spread out here now.
