Daily Surf Report - 7/17/2014

Inspirational crystal quote of the day: 
“Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible.” - Albert Einstein

Mellow moistness as we had some light overnight precipitation.  Now calm with sun breaking through, windless with glassy ocean, humid with a temp of 62F.  Looks like it could all be coming together for a nice beach day.  Still not much surf action with a fading NW windswell and a dropping tide.  Could be a new pulse of S swell showing up later today but it will take until the afternoon for water levels to rise enough to let it in.  A few waves are out there for the offering and positivity reigns supreme as always. 

CHANNEL:  Tide still dropping to low for another 2 hours but sandbars are starting to show already.  A few lefts off the Groin bar that are rideable and ruling at thigh high in size.  Deeper Channel showing a mix of rights and lefts that end quickly with low water levels.  Still something that will get your longboard moving in the shoreward direction this morning.

PATCH: Still some water and a few rollers trying their best to fold over and break.  Best options are inside where the rocks are mostly covered and the rights run thigh high and will peel along towards shore.  Out by the meeting rock are teaser waves the look to break then hold up and roll under.  Those that work are thigh high + and longer rides can be had.  More waiting than surfing further out but the choice is always yours to make.  Afternoon high tide and a new S swell will turn the magic on.


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.
