Daily Surf Report - 5/26/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“The soldier, above all other men, is required to perform the highest act of religious teaching — sacrifice.” - Douglas MacArthur - American General And Field Marshal

Happy Memorial Day - a day to remember the men and women who died while serving in our country's armed forces.  Celebrate the freedoms we all enjoy as Americans and honor those that have served.  

Sun's out and temp is 58F already.  High pressure system is in play.  NW winds blow.  NW winds rip.  NW winds shred.  Hold tight to your loved ones and valued possessions.  Grip that board tight and prepare to take flight.  Stiff winds that are side shore / off shore.  Grooming it up and sanding up the grill as well.  Still have some windswell and lingering S swell in the water but the wind has started fairly strong and has put quite a bit of texture on the ocean.  Potentially rideable if you can navigate to the beach and incoming tide water levels add a positive dimension to the day.  Shred while you can.  Glide if you like.  Take advantage of the day off and enjoy the holiday with family, friends and crystals. 

CHANNEL:  Somewhat protected from the wind and showing small surf in the thigh high level.  Incoming tide push helps on the Mali-Bo and Channel bars this morning.  Not much doing on the Groin bar and Seadrift looks to have a few small rights to ride as well.  Definitely some texture with the wind but a nice day especially for getting sand in your face and mouth. 

PATCH:  Exposed to more wind and chopped up.  Occasionally breaking waves in the knee to thigh high size but plenty of sideways winds on it already.  The fearless are making the journey and big logs can navigate the chop to find nirvana on the water today.  Tide filling in keeps the rocks at back so giddy up if you so desire.

Respect the Beach.
