Daily Surf Report - 2/17/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." - James Baldwin

Good morning to all of you humanoids of watery realities! Truly another great morning here at the beach as the sun is up with that gold-toothed grin again, the birds are singing in the key of John Coltrane as the temperature is loping in at a soothing 47 degrees. Now, one would think, "Gee, that sounds pretty nice. It doesn't really get much better than that." Hold on kids because it actually does get a bit better... there is surf in town. Not crazy, off-the-chain, macking green slabs but there is surf here. So, on this President's day go ahead and apply the rubber coating, grab the hydrodynamic vehicle of your choice and go get some liquid salt therapy.

CHANNEL:  Waist (+) over that middle bar that is making about as much noise as two skeletons throwing a fit on a tin roof. The Groin Pole and the Sea Drift side seem to be the ticket here as I write this. Sometimes they are clean runs, other occasions they section like the the Sunday New York Times. The discerning eye will dictate the wave selection for you. Several out there now on various craft and more in the parking lot getting ready to take the plunge.

PATCH:  Lines-lines-lines. Outside, the middle, inside, the Snags, E.T's, Green/Africa.. blah, blah, blah. Though it's all in the waist (+/-) range not a heck-of-a-lot of them are breaking cleanly and, typical of the Clam Patch some rear up...roll for a ways then disolve back into the brine without even a whimper. Still, there is something to be had as the ever-growing crowd can attest to that is out there now.

Respect the Beach.
