Daily Surf Report - 5/9/2014


Inspirational crystal quote of the day:  
“The wind and the waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.” - Edward Gibbon

Streaky clouds but mostly sunshine.  No more drizzle but overall moist morning.  Winds are very light and ocean is glassing up.  Temp is 55F and it is a beautiful beach day this morning.  Still not much doing in terms of swell or waves.  Small NW wind-swell and very minor S swell not giving it up and producing the good stuff to ride.  Marginal at best with hope only on the horizon but expectations remain low.  Fear not as beauty is in the eye of the beholder and love is where you find it.  Crystallize your dreams and take what Mother Ocean offers and turn it into gold. 

CHANNEL:  Small and nearly not breaking except inside the Groin pole at Mali-Bo.  Tide switch in 3 minutes will shut that down so pack a lunch and paddle across to Seadrift to find a wave.  Knee high and not too much more here today.

PATCH:  Again small and again mostly inside today.  A bit more on the Northern reaches of the Patch with surf size pushing knee high +/-.  Pop up peaks that disappear quickly.  May be rideable but lineup is currently empty.  1 SUP back from a 3 hour tour reports "small surf".  You heard it here first.  

Respect the Beach.
