Daily Surf Report - 7/16/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” - Confucius 

It's a cloudy morning here in Bolinas as the sun is doing it's best to push its way through and shine its radiant light upon us all. With air temps already in the mid 60s this morning, expect the sun to come out and for it to be a warm and beautiful day here once again. As far as surf goes, there isn't much to be seen. The tide is too low right now, but wait for later today as the tide comes in. The horizon is full of corduroy lines right now that are slowly rolling in and when the tide shifts and more water is over both the patch and groin, you can expect this 2-3ft NW swell to produce some fun small waves. But as has been the case for this week so far, the key is to wait for the tide and be patient.  

CHANNEL:  All of the sandbars are exposed as the tide is in the negative and still going out. Lines are forming on the horizon though so expect waves in the ankle+ range as the tide fills in over the bars. 

PATCH: Similar to the groin as the tide is too low and all of the rocks are exposed. Lines are rolling in and breaking on the way inside in the ankle range with corduroy lines all the way to the horizon giving hope to fun waves later today when the tide shifts. Wait for the tide before trying your luck and you may find some gems.

The Kahuna Kupuna is the only surf contest in the world that is specifically designed to honor the more experienced surfers (in age) among us!  Kahuna, in Hawaiian, means “Big Chief” and Kupuna means “grandparent” or “wise elder”.  The main focus of the contest is the Kahuna Kupuna divisions for men and women surfers who are 40 years of age and over, with separate age group sub-divisions for shortboard and longboard surfers. In addition, an Intergenerational Team Division and a Stand Up Paddle Board Division welcomes surfers of all ages.
