Daily Surf Report - 5/17/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“Some people never go crazy, what truly horrible lives they must lead." - Henry Charles 'Hank' Bukowski

Good morning to all of you creatures of the brine. Another spectacular morning here at the beach this fine spring day. The sun is being a tad shy today as it's busy pouting behind some high cumulus but I'm sure it'll come out to play, just like Dear Prudence later today. The temperature is squeaking in at a comfortable 55 degrees and that pesky wind is blowing like Dizzy Gillespie. It's supposed to reach the mid-to-high 60's here today so bring layers and ALWAYS pack the sun block. The surf is in the minuscule range right now but the tide is still on the run going out in a negative fashion -------->
So, don't touch that dial as I'll keep you posted right here for any changes later.

CHANNEL:  The tide is still out, but will be on the turnaround soon. The sand bars are out and exposed looking like a chain of small islands. Could be the spot a little later today. Right now it more resembles the infamous Mariachi Speed Metal Clog Dancing duo of 'Slurpy & Sloppy.' No one here doing anything as I write this. 

PATCH:  Thigh-ish crumblers that roll very-slowly for a little ways then poop out like a sumo wrestler running a mile. Granted the tide is WAY out right now but with the turn-around we'll see what develops later. Only the 'Wonder Surfer' DB and the 'Strongest Woman in the World' Francine are out there now trying their best.

Respect the Beach.
