Daily Surf Report - 5/16/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” - Joshua J Marine

Marine layer moved in last night to cool things off.  Brought with it some onshore wind which is putting a bit of funk on the surface this morning.  Farily drained out low tide providing a confluence of factors keeping it marginally surfable at best right now.  There is a SW swell in the water and it should hold throughout the day.  Water levels need to come up and winds need to stay low to get things improving.  There are still some waves to surf and if conditions change for the better we will report it here.

CHANNEL:  In the Channel proper a couple of nice looking lefts in the knee to thigh high range were observed.  Holding shape and good for the longboard.  Low tide makes it easy to get to and stand as well.  Not much at the Groin to ride and Seadrift is always worth a look or investigation.  Better than the last few days with the new swell and you can surf if your board is long.  

PATCH:  Still best out at the meeting rock and waves size remains thigh +.  Swell has filled in but water levels have not.  Lots of rocks exposed and it will take a few hours to cover things up.  Wind is still light so if you have the time there are a few waves.  Later will have better tides but expect the winds to come up and possibly blow things out.  About 8 in the water here now.

Respect the Beach.
